  Purpose
This study is designed to identify the cells of the immune system that cause skin disease such as psoriasis and mycosis fungoides. Blood samples from many patients will be compared in hopes of finding common cells and molecules responsible for skin diseases. Results of this study will increase our knowledge about immune mediated skin disease.

Condition
Psoriasis Mycosis Fungoides

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: T Cell Repertoire Analysis of Immune Mediated Skin Diseases

Further study details as provided by University of California, Davis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Peripheral blood will be collected from adults ages 18-85. [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    These samples will then be used for PCR analysis and T cell cloning.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • T cell repertoire [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
    characterizing the T cell repertoire of individuals with immune mediated skin disease (e.g. psoriasis and mycosis fungoides).


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Fifteen tablespoons of blood will be collected prior to the initiation of a treatment and again after the patient shows a clinical response to a treatment. The time between blood draws will be no less than 3 months. There will be no more than two blood draws per patient.

Blood samples will be used to determine the patient's HLA haplotype via PCR and DNA sequencing. After the patient's haplotype has been established the activated T cell repertoire will be analyzed for clonal expansions. Clonal expansions in the T cell repertoire will be determined by immunoscope analysis, which is a PCR based technique.


Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: January 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
1
Individuals ages 12-85 with an immune mediated skin disease, such as psoriasis, scleroderma, or mycosis fungoides. Peripheral blood and/or check swabs will be collected from participants ages 12- 85 years old. These samples will then be used to characterize the inflammatory cells as described above.
2
Age-Matched Controls without immune mediated skin diseases. Peripheral blood and/or check swabs will be collected from participants ages 12- 85 years old. These samples will then be used to characterize the inflammatory cells as described above.

Detailed Description:
The aim of the study is to characterized the T cell repertoire of individuals with immune mediated skin disease (e.g. psoriasis and mycosis fungoides). Peripheral blood with be collected from volunteers with psoriasis, mycosis fungoides and age matched controls. Fifteen tablespoons of blood will be collected prior to the initiation of treatment and again after the patient shows a clinical response to treatment. The time between blood draws will be no less than 3 months. There will be no more than two blood draws per patient. Blood samples will be used to determine the patient's HLA haplotype via PCR and DNA sequencing. After the patient's haplotype has been established the activated T cell repertoire will be analyzed for clonal expansions. Clonal expansions in the T cell repertoire will be determined by immunoscope analysis, which is a PCR based technique.
