Title: Preliminary results of substudy of SjS based on RNA-seq data from PRECISESADS.

PRECISESADS est un projet européen regroupant des partenaires académiques et privés de 12 pays différents et dont une description générale est la suivante :

Inflammatory autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus affect 1-3% of the population, and while treatments exist, these are costly and have a number of serious side effects. There is growing evidence that many of these conditions may be incorrectly classified. The PRECISESADS project will study 2 500 people with various autoimmune diseases, gathering data on the molecular causes of their disease as well as their clinical symptoms. Using this information, they will pave the way for a new classification of these diseases, something that will allow doctors to offer patients more personalised treatments at an earlier stage of their disease.
