Therapeutic Drug Monitoring of Brodalumab in Psoriasis Patients (BIOLOPTIM-BRO)
Biologics, such as brodalumab, are currently the most effective treatment option for patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis. But they are costly for health care systems and prescribed according to a 'one dose fits all' dosing regimen, leading to potential over- and undertreatment. Within this study we aim to investigate the predictive value of early serum trough levels of brodalumab and determine the therapeutic window of brodalumab in psoriasis patients.
Therapeutic Drug Monitoring of Guselkumab in Psoriasis Patients
Biologic such as guselkumab are currently the most effective treatment option for patients with moderate to severe psoriasis. But they are costly for healthcare systems and still described according to a 'one dose fits all' dosing regimen, leading to potential over- and undertreatment. In this study we aim to investigate the predictive value of early serum trough levels of guselkumab and determine the therapeutic window of guselkumab in psoriasis patients.
Therapeutic Drug Monitoring of Secukinumab in Psoriasis Patients.
Biologics such as secukinumab are currently the most effective treatment option for patients with moderate to severe psoriasis. But they are costly for healthcare systems and still described according to a'one dose fits all' dosing regimen, leading to potential over-and undertreatment. In this study we aim to investigate the predictive value of early serum trough levels of secukinumab and determine the therapeutic window of secukinumab in psoriasis patients.
The Role of Bacterial Toxins in Human Skin Disease
Atopic dermatitis and psoriasis are two skin diseases often associated with bacterial infections and inflammation. Studies indicate that skin cells from these patients may have some changes that make these patients more susceptible to bacterial infections. Inflammatory environment may have an effect on the function of skin cells. The purpose of this study is to learn more about skin cells (keratinocytes and fibroblasts) and how they regulate skin barrier function. To study this we need to establish skin cells that can be grown in the laboratory. We will use small skin biopsies from patients with atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and...
The Role of Food Sensitivity in Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a common chronic skin disorder that affects over 4 million people. There is no cure for psoriasis and treatment is directed at controlling patients' symptoms. The purpose of this study is to determine whether psoriasis patients are more likely to have food sensitivities than those patients without psoriasis. We will also determine if eliminating certain foods from the diet results in a change in psoriasis symptoms.
The Role Of Neutrophil Proteases As Global Regulators Of Il-1 Family Cytokine Activity In Skin Disorders
Pro-inflammatory cytokines are critically important drivers of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and cytokine-targeted biologics have been transformative in the treatment of several inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. As the diversity of approved cytokine-targeted biologic therapies grows, it will become increasingly important to stratify patients on the basis of specific genetic or disease biomarker phenotypes to ensure that patients receive the appropriate cytokine-targeted biologic, at the appropriate dose, and at the appropriate time. This project aims to explore patterns of pro-inflammatory cytokine/chemokine expression ...
TNF and IL23 Blocking Agents Gene Expression Ratios in the Psoriatic Arthritis Synovium_(TIGERS) Study
This study compare the genomics profiles in synovial biopsies obtained prior to, and 24 weeks after a biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs)(Adalimumab, Ustekinumab, Guselkumab) in patients with active psoriatic arthritis despite a treatment with a conventional synthetic DMARDs (such as methotrexate).
To Assess the Effect of SCD-044 Treatment on Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in subjects with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
To Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of SHR0302 Tablet in Subjects of Active Psoriatic Arthritis
This study is a phase 3 study,to evaluate the efficacy and safety of different doses of JAK1 inhibitor SHR0302 in subjects with active psoriatic arthritis.
To Evaluate the Mechanism of Jing Si Herbal Tea Liquid Packets and Traditional Western Medicine for Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic cutaneous inflammatory disease due to immune dysregulation. It caused skin lesions with thickening plaques and heavy silver scales over the patient's body surface area, including nail deformity, often accompanied by severe itching and pain. Psoriasis is not a contagious or infectious skin disorder, but patients' quality of life is often severely affected by skin symptoms. The annual prevalence of psoriasis in Taiwan is about 0.235%, and about one in 500 people may get psoriasis. Psoriasis has not just skin problems, but it often combines with other comorbidities such as psoriatic arthritis, metabolic syndrome such...
