Scleroderma and Raynaud's Research Bank
The Scleroderma and Raynaud's Research Bank (SRRB) consists of a Bank of blood, DNA, serum, skin biopsies, calcinosis samples and capillaroscopy and thermography images with associated clinical data. These are collected on patients with scleroderma (both systemic sclerosis spectrum disorders including localised scleroderma also termed morphoea), patients with other connective tissue diseases, patients with primary Raynaud’s phenomenon, patients with shoulder problems leading to deposition of calcium salts (deposition of calcium salts also occurs in scleroderma) and healthy controls. The Bank currently contains samples from over 800 individuals, collected as part of individual research projects and the ongoing assessment of patients attending general rheumatology, scleroderma and dermatology clinics acting as tissue collection centres.
