Questions about Arthritis in Chldren??

Help us find the answers!

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis is the most common chronic arthritis in children, yet there is still so much we that we need to learn about this condition. These studies will give us some answers.


REsearch in Arthritis in Candian CHildren - Emphasizing Outcomes (REACCH OUT)

This study will follow 1500 children from across Canada newly diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis. We hope to find out more about what happens to children with arthritis over a 5 yer period. We will focus on what their arthritis looks like, what treatments they receive, and whether we can prdict which children will do better or worse in the future.


Biologically-based Outcome Predictors in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (BBOP)

This study will look at how things like stress, infections, injuries, exercise, diet and chemicals (like tobacco smoke), interact with genes to affect how a child with arthritis will do in the future.


Risks and Determinants of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (DETERMINANTS)

This study will look at certain genes and how they affect whether a child will get arthritis, how severe it will be and how they will respond to different treatments.


If you are interested in learning more about any of these studies please speak to a member of CAPRI (The Canadian Alliance of Pedaitric Rheumatology Invesigators) or contact us through this website.
