Psoriatic Arthritis D2P Screening
The overarching goal of this study is to develop a direct-to-patient screening approach that will improve early Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) detection in patients with psoriasis. Previously developed screening questionnaires were intended for use in the setting of a doctor's office to assist providers with referral decisions. However, these screening questionnaires are infrequently used in routine practice because of limitations with time and resources. The study will aim to develop a practical screening strategy that does not require involvement from dermatologists (or other non-rheumatology providers) and can systematically reach a broad...
Psoriatic Arthritis Research Collaborative: Biologic Sub-Study
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis with substantial variation in clinical features. We propose a multicenter collaborative approach to better understand the phenotypes and current management of PsA in the United States.The central goal of this proposal is to obtain the data necessary to design a pragmatic trial in PsA.
Psoriatic Oligoarthritis Intervention With Symptomatic thErapy
POISE is a two arm interventional trial nested within a cohort (Trials Within Cohorts or TWiCs design). This tests less aggressive early therapy in patients newly diagnosed with low impact oligoarticular PsA. Arm 1 will receive standard step up therapy in the cohort and act as the control group. Arm 2 will receive local steroid injections to active joints and will be able to use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) only
Pso-Vac: Educational Needs re Vaccines for Biologic Patients With Psoriasis
To determine if there is a need for further education on vaccines with psoriasis patients who are on a biologic. In regards to the COVID-19, it is important that psoriasis patients - whether on a biologic or not - understand whether they can have certain vaccines. That will depend on the type of vaccine that becomes available.
Randomized, Double Blinded, Placebo Controlled, Single Dose Escalation Study of 608 in Healthy Subjects
This is a first-in-human, phase 1, single-center, randomized, double blinded, placebo-controlled, single dose-escalation study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, of 608 following subcutaneous injection in healthy subjects.
Regulation of Inflammatory Genes in Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic and recurrent skin disorder characterized by marked inflammatory changes in the skin. An extensive cytokine network including generated by activated dendritic cells and T cells mediates the formation of psoriatic lesions. These immune-response parameters can be used as markers in the severity and management of the disease after further in-depth studies.
Regulation of Mucosal Healing in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The objective of the current study is to compare non-healing colonic ulcers in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with iatrogenic colonic ulcers (biopsy sites) in healthy control patients and patients with rheumatoid or psoriatic arthritis. Patients will be biopsied at baseline, and again at a follow-up visit. These biopsies will be used to reveal patterns about gene expression and mitochondrial function during ulcer healing.
Response to Ustekinumab for Anti-tnf Induced Psoriasiform Skin Lesions
Using transcriptomics and proteomics to gain insights in the development of psoriasiform skin lesions under anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) therapy, and predicting response to ustekinumab.
Rheumatology Patient Registry and Biorepository
To facilitate clinical, basic science, and translational research projects involving the study of rheumatic diseases.
Role of Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors in the Treatment of Psoriasis
The investigators hypothesize that the inhibition of endogenous reverse transcriptase would: (1) reduce excess cytosolic DNA, stress initiating the inflammatory loop at the origin of psoriatic lesions, and (2) interrupt the loop and lighten lesions
