Study IDST001949
Study TitlePlasma Metabolome Normalization in Rheumatoid Arthritis following initiation of Methotrexate and the Identification of Metabolic Biomarkers of Efficacy
Study TypeClinical
Study SummaryMethotrexate (MTX) efficacy in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is variable and unpredictable, resulting in a need to identify biomarkers to guide drug therapy. This study evaluates changes in the plasma metabolome associated with response to MTX in RA with the goal of understanding the metabolic basis for MTX efficacy towards the identification of potential metabolic biomarkers of MTX response.

Collection ID:CO002020
Collection Summary:Venous blood samples were collected in 8.5 mL ACD Solution A BD Vacutainer tubes for the healthy control, and RA patients prior to initiation of MTX and at a 16 week follow up visit. Venous blood samples were collected and separated into plasma and cellular fractions by centrifugation at 3,000 RPM in a Thermo Scientific Sorvall Legend XTR centrifuge for 10 minutes. The resulting plasma supernatant was separated into aliquots and stored at -80 ⁰C prior to analysis.
Sample Type:Blood (plasma)
Storage Conditions:-80℃
