With support from the Good Friday Appeal, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Department of Rheumatology has established the CLARITY Juvenile Arthritis Research Platform to better understand and treat the disease.
The RCH and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute are home to Australia’s only paediatric rheumatology research program, and the new CLARITY study is set to help translate research findings into practice, improving clinical care for children both locally, nationally and internationally. With the aim of enrolling 250 participants annually, the study will enable new research that aims to identify biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of children with juvenile arthritis.
