The division of Pediatric Rheumatology is devoted to furthering the knowledge of autoimmune and rheumatologic diseases and their treatment. Our providers have a wide range of clinical research interests.
The purpose of this registry is to create and maintain a database (collection of information) called the CARRA Registry. This database will collect and store information about patients with pediatric rheumatic disease. Researchers will then study the stored information. Researchers think this information will help improve future treatments and health outcomes, and maybe even prevent or cure pediatric rheumatic diseases in the future. In addition, this registry will be able to identify patients who may be eligible for future studies.
