Blood from patient and healthy controls will be collected once every 3-6 months. White blood cells from blood samples will be separated. Tests will be done to see which substances these cells make. Using sequencing techniques, the investigators will determine the genetic code of the receptors expressed on these cells. The investigators plan to test how these cells change over the period of at least 3 years at different visits. In addition, the investigators will check how these changes relate to patients' general medical history relevant to autoimmune disease, lab results and physical examinations and exams pertinent to the diagnosis of autoimmune disease, and psychosocial data.
