Gender-dependent regulation of lgG glycosylation in Juvenile and Adult arthritis

At Brigham & Women’s Hospital (Harvard’s teaching hospital), Dr. Ercan is studying the role of the modified antibodies found in both juvenile and adult arthritis patients in the cause and tissue destructive phase of the disease. His work may lead to better understanding juvenile and adult rheumatoid arthritis and provide novel targets for new therapies.
