The MEDIPSA Clinical Trial
The main purpose of this study is to validate the positive effect of "Omnibiotic Stress Repair" on patients with active psoriatic Arthritis.
The Norwegian Antirheumatic Drug Register
NOR-DMARD is a register-based longitudinal observational study of which the main objectives are to study the effectiveness of treatment of inflammatory joint diseases with biological disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) in clinical practice, by measuring disease activity, health related quality of life, function and joint damage, and to study the long-term safety of such treatment. Other objectives include the assessment of cost-effectiveness of treatment, to identify and and validate clinical, genetic and immunological predictors of efficacy and adverse events, to assess the impact of treatment with biological DMARDs on...
The Psoriasis, Atherosclerosis, and Cardiometabolic Disease Initiative (PACI)
Background: - Cardiometabolic diseases are medical disorders that can occur together and affect the heart. They increase the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. One disorder, psoriasis, is an inflammation that mostly affects the skin but can affect the entire body. Another disorder, atherosclerosis, is a process in which cholesterol is gradually deposited on the wall of arteries. This causes arteries to harden and become less flexible. Many cells that cause psoriasis also cause atherosclerosis. Researchers want to look at the relationship between cardiometabolic diseases and psoriasis. Objectives: - To...
The Psoriasis Echo Study
In a prospective cohort study (n = 1.000), the investigators aim to investigate the correlation between cardiac biomarkers and advanced echocardiography and determine whether these are prognostic markers of heart disease in patients suffering from psoriasis.
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 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).
