Arthritis and autoimmunity (AA)

The teams are studying the predispositions and development mechanisms of rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma and inflammatory arthritis, in order to identify high-risk subjects, to offer diagnostic and therapeutic applications, and means of prevention.

Microchemistry is also considered in the development of autoimmune diseases (presence of mother's cells in her child or child's cells in the mother).

The UMR is associated with the rheumatology department of Ste Marguerite Hospital.
