Stress Response Pathways in Vitiligo

Study Description

Stress Response Pathways in Vitiligo

The purpose of this study is to investigate stress response pathways in tissues and melanocytes from patients with vitiligo. Investigators are collecting evidence of UPR and stress response activation in tissues and melanocytes from patients with vitiligo. Individuals with vitiligo will have punch biopsies to study stress response UPR activation and NF-IoB signaling to test our hypothesis. In order to characterize differences between disease and normal states, a second arm of control individuals (Arm 2) will be recruited.
