RESONANCE – REgiStry Of the NAtural History of recurreNt periCarditis in pEdiatric and adult patients


What is the goal of the study?

Pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium (the lining around the heart), and is most commonly referred to as idiopathic, meaning that there is no known cause. The primary symptom of pericarditis is chest pain. Pericarditis is considered as recurrent if symptoms, such as chest pain, recur after an initial acute episode. The estimated prevalence of recurrent pericarditis (RP) in the United States (US) is approximately 40,000 patients.1 As of 2020, there are no FDA-approved therapies for the treatment of pericarditis. The majority of patients with pericarditis are currently treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, colchicine and/or corticosteroids. The RESONANCE Registry is currently looking for people with pericarditis to participate in research that will help physicians and patients understand more about the disease.
