|Official Title:||T Cell Repertoire Analysis of Immune Mediated Skin Diseases|

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.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
