Recently, we have presented a strategy to identify new marker molecules characteristic for Alopecia areata by combining protein microarray technology with the use of large cDNA expression libraries (Lueking et al., 2005). This strategy is now applied to Juvenile idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in a BMBF-funded project.
