Brief Summary:
Use of genotyping for the optimization of treatment with biologics in chronic arthritis by looking for an association between certain alleles and response to treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Chronic Arthritis Other: Blood sample

Detailed Description:
Chronic arthritis in children and in adults represent a public health problem in number and difficulty of treatment. 30% of patients are non-responders and / or relapse upon discontinuation of treatment. Some of these treatments are not always well tolerated, sometimes with infectious complications including tuberculosis limiting the use of biological therapies. This study will validate a battery of genetic markers to predict responders biotherapy, determine the prognosis of patients, these treatments are reserved for the most severe forms, and thus improve the care of patients.
