Efficacy of Secukinumab Compared to Ustekinumab in Adults With Active Psoriatic Arthritis and Failure of TNFα-Inhibitor Treatment
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of secukinumab and ustekinumab in patients with active psoriatic arthritis who showed failure to previous TNFα-inhibitor treatment
Efficacy, Safety, and Immunogenicity of Subcutaneous DMB-3115 Versus Stelara® in Patients With Moderate to Severe Chronic Plaque Psoriasis
This study is designed to evaluate efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) and immunogenicity of subcutaneously administered DMB-3115 in comparison with Stelara for treatment of moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis.
Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability Study of Apremilast to Treat Early Oligoarticular Psoriatic Arthritis.
This clinical study will test the effects of a drug called apremilast in oligoarticular psoriatic arthritis with less than 2 years of disease duration. In previous studies, apremilast has been shown to be safe and efficacious in reducing signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, as well as improving physical function. This study will compare the effects of apremilast to placebo on psoriatic arthritis subjects in which the number of affected joints is limited (greater than 1 but less or equal to 4). About 330 patients worldwide will take part in this study.
Evaluating the Efficacy and Tolerability of Application of Metaderm Product for the Treatment of Psoriasis
Psoriasis vulgaris is a common inflammatory condition of the skin that results in well-demarcated, scaly, erythematous, itchy plaques. In the United States, psoriasis remains a common, immune-mediated disease, affecting 7.4 million adults. Often topical prescription medications are used as first line treatment for moderate psoriasis. Some topical medications have side effects and risk with long time use, thus not ideal for extensive and indefinite amount of time. Conversely, over- the-counter emollient treatments are readily available, safe and potentially efficacious. This study is design to test the safety and efficacy of topical...
Evaluation of Patient Satisfaction and Therapeutic Impact Regarding Joint Consultation Rheumatologist/Dermatologist
Current increase in the number of multidisciplinary consultations, but little documentation on their impact on patient management. More specifically, in the context of psoriatic arthritis, we are seeking to investigate the interest for the patient, through his or her satisfaction and the evolution of the activity of his or her pathology, of a global, joint management in Rheumatology and Dermatology.
Evaluation of the Sensitivity and Specificity of a Novel Quality of Life Tool to Assess the Treatment Satisfaction in Psoriasis Patients
The severity of psoriasis can be influenced by a great variety of factors including extent of the disease, lesions location and impact on quality of life. The current standard of care for psoriasis is focusing on the reduction of the skin symptoms as defined by the PASI, somewhat setting asides the patient's feelings in terms of which aspects of his/her life are affected by the disease. Despite the fact that multiple patient reported outcomes (PRO) questionnaires are available to evaluate the impact of the disease on patients' quality of life, only few items address the subjective impact of skin disease. Among the available PROs the...
Evolution and Treatments of Chronic Inflammatory Systemic Diseases
Patients with chronic inflammatory diseases (CID) followed in gastroenterology and rheumatology have physiopathological, epidemiological and therapeutic focal points. The pathologies concerned are inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD - Crohn's disease [MC] and ulcerative colitis [RCH]), and chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis [RA] and spondyloarthritis [SpA] including psoriatic arthritis [PsA]). Presenting one of these diseases is associated with a higher risk of having a second inflammatory pathology, whether the latter is ophthalmological, dermatological, rheumatological or gastroenterological. An association...
Glucocorticoid-induced Osteoporosis in Patients With Chronic Inflammatory Rheumatic Diseases or Psoriasis
Glucocorticoids remain to be among the most important and most frequently used anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive or immune-modulatory acting drugs to treat rheumatic (and other) diseases. Unfortunately, glucocorticoids also exert undesired effects, especially if higher dosages have to be given over longer periods of time. The available data describing frequency and severity of these adverse effects are fragmentary. This statement is especially true for glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis (GIOP) in the context of chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases or (in part) psoriasis(arthritis). The state of knowledge and scientific ...
GOLimumab and Methotrexate Versus Methotrexate in Very Early PsA (GOLMEPsA)
An investigator-initiated double-blind, parallel-group randomised controlled trial of GOLimumab and Methotrexate versus Methotrexate in very early PsA using clinical and whole body MRI outcomes.
GOTHA - The Early Arthritis and Psoriasis Study of Region Västra Götaland, Sweden
GÖTHA- The early arthritis and psoriasis study of Region Västra Götaland, Sweden - is a longitudinal observational study, which will prospectively and in parallel follow patients with newly diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis (RA, N=1000), psoriatic arthritis (PsA, N=500) and undifferentiated arthritis (N=100), together with patients with psoriasis (N=500). The study will also recruit healthy controls from the general population (N=3000). The aims of the study are to define predictors for disease course and severity, treatment response, comorbidities, health related quality of life (HRQoL) and health economy. The study is a...
