Adult AD Patient Cohort

The MUHC COE AD is now home to the largest Canadian academic cohort of adult AD patients consenting to REB-approved research. The ‘Dermatitis’ biobank and database is operated in collaboration w the Transdisciplinary Centre for Biological Therapies (Drs. Mazer and McCusker) for banking. The REB-approved ‘Crosstalk - Unraveling the Crosstalk of Cutaneous Resident Memory T Cells and S. Aureus in Atopic Eczema’ has approximately ~25% participation in biosampling.

Subject recruitment is performed on-site at the MUHC COE AD by two Clinical Research Coordinators. Clinical and longitudinal data is collected and entered into the database in real time. Data can be retrieved, visualized, and exported to address scientific questions.

Highlights from this cohort were presented at the 2022 Society for Investigative (SID) Annual Meeting in Portland, OR (“Health-related quality of life in a Canadian atopic dermatitis cohort”).
