Approximately 10-30% of young people with JIA develop uveitis, which tends to affect children’s eyes over a long time and mainly involves the front part of the eye.
Juvenile-onset Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus) is a chronic autoimmune disease in children that can affect any part of the body including joints and major organs.
We address both the common and rare, but complex, genetic or metabolic causes of bone disease in children.
The EATC4Children is involved in developing outcome measures for JLS and investigating new treatments for JLS and JSS.
Led by Dr Louise Oni, the programme focuses on IgA vasculitis and neuropathy with patient involvement at it's centre.
EATC4Children continue to work on the development of emerging workstreams, with a focus on Behcet's syndrome, Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and bronchial inflammation.
