New Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvant (ASIA) Registry Created


Clinicians worldwide are invited to submit information to a first-of-its-kind registry for ASIA cases that has been created by the editor of Autoimmunity News, Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD, FRCP of Tel-Aviv University and Dr. Ricard Cervera, MD, PhD, FRCP of the Hospital Clinic, Barcelona.  This registry will enable researchers to analyze thousands of global cases of ASIA. Data from patient questionnaires in the registry will provide a resource for researchers to: 1) compare clinical manifestations, 2) discover common instigators, and 3) compare the efficacy of treatments.

 To submit a case in the registry, please contact:
