RUDY Study: Rare diseases of the bone, joint and vessels study
Dr M K Javaid & Professor R Luqmani, University of Oxford
The RUDY Study is open to those with rare disorders, as well their blood relatives. The study aims to understand more about all aspects of rare diseases of the bones, joints and/or blood vessels. These rare diseases affect less than 1 in 5000 people. Some of this new understanding will be used to develop new tests and treatments for patients with rare diseases of the bone, joints or blood vessels.
