Abstract

African-Americans have been under-represented in genetic studies of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) susceptibiltiy and severity. Genetic and non-genetic factors influencing the radiographic severity of RA and its response to treatment are poorly understood, particularly in African-Americans. The Consortium for the Longitudinal Evaluation of African-Americans with early RA (CLEAR) Registry, a collaborative effort among four institutions in the southeast USA, will hopefully provide a useful resource to study these issues.
