Open for Recruitment
This study will evaluate subjects with adult- and childhood-onset myositis to learn more about their causes and the immune system changes and medical problems associated with them. Myositis is an inflammatory muscle disease that can damage muscles and other organs, resulting in significant disability.
This study also intends to investigate the genetic and environmental risk factors involved in the development of myositis, an autoimmune muscle disease that causes chronic muscle weakness. Adults and children diagnosed with myositis may enroll by completing questionnaires and donating blood and urine samples.
