Classification Criteria Project open for data collection


The International Myositis Classification Criteria Project, which is a multi-disciplinary international effort to develop new classification criteria for adult and juvenile myositis, is now open for data collection. Participants are requested to contribute 10 - 15 myositis cases (adult or juvenile) and a similar number of non-myositis cases where myositis has been considered in the diagnostic evaluation. Limited funds are available for medical record review/data collection. For further information, including the full proposal and IRB sample templates, see The International Myositis Classification Criteria Project.
