Summary

Low vitamin d levels are common among patients undergoing orthopedic surgery. However, very little is known about how vitamin d affects outcomes in patients undergoing total joint replacement surgery. Our study will look at how common low vitamin d status is among patients undergoing total hip and total knee replacement surgery. We will also look at how vitamin d levels affect complication rates and hospital readmission rates.

Summary

The Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) in Gullah Health, or SLEIGH, study is an observational study enrolling African Americans from the Sea Island communities of South Carolina and Georgia. We are enrolling patients, family members of patients, and unrelated community members. SLE is a potentially severe disease that can affect the entire body. SLE is more common in African Americans than Caucasians. The main purpose of this study is to find genes that, along with factors from the environment, result in the development of SLE. Volunteers in SLEIGH will be asked to answer questions about their health and have blood and urine collected for tests. After the first visit there may be one additional visit 2 or more years later. This is not a drug study.
