The National Alopecia Areata Registry was awarded as a five-year contract by NIAMS to promote research on the genetic basis of alopecia areata. The registry is Web based and can be accessed online at http://www.AlopeciaAreataRegistry.org. Samples of DNA, lymphoblast lines, and sera, as well as epidemiology and quality-of-life data, are being collected from well-characterized individuals, multiplex families, and sib pairs for future research studies and investigators.
