Multicentre Clinical Registries
In this paper we discussed the usefulness and problems concerning the implementation of a multicentre clinical registry for Adamantiades-Behçet’s disease. Of course, this paper was written from the perspective of a statistician. Thus, the concepts described in the paper have to be filled with life by clinical experts of Adamantiades-Behçet’s disease. However, the necessity of such a registry and the benefit obtained from the cooperation of different centres is obvious and may improve patient care and research in this medical field.
