Further study details as provided by University of Rochester:

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: June 2008
Detailed Description:
The object of this protocol is to characterize and monitor auto antigen-specific T cell responses in blood and liver biopsies of patients with anti-SLA/LP or anti-LKM-positive autoimmune hepatitis. The results will provide insight into the pathogenesis of autoimmune hepatitis and the monitoring of auto antigen-specific T cell reactivity in correlation to disease exacerbation and therapy.
