Project context and summary :

Chronic inflammatory systemic diseases (CIDs) are a burden to humans because of life-long debilitating illness, increased mortality and high therapy costs. CIDs’ increasing prevalence in western countries has indeed placed them at the third rank of morbi-mortality causes. Unfortunately, available treatments are poorly targeted and non-curative. That is partly linked to a complex and largely ununderstood pathophysiology. Genetic susceptibility clearly plays a role. Genes linked to the immune system have been identified, but causal genes remain mostly unknown and other factors such as intestinal microbiota have also been implicated. The complexity of CIDs’ pathophysiology suggests that a holistic approach is the most susceptible to help make significant progress. Our project intends to take advantage of recent technical progress and development of informatics tools to set up a transversal approach. High-resolution sequencing technology indeed quickly produces large amounts of accurate data. Besides, new integrative informatics tools allowing storage and integrative analysis of this resulting high amount of data are now available. We intend to set-up a CID’s network allowing the gathering and extensive analysis of data related to immuno-genetic determinants, immune repertoire and microbiota from individuals suffering from one of the three major interlinked CIDs, namely Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), Crohn’s disease (CD) and Spondyloarthropathy (SpA) as compared to healthy volunteers.
