Tapinarof for the Treatment of Plaque Psoriasis in Adults (3002)
This is a randomized double-blind vehicle-controlled Phase 3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of topical tapinarof cream, 1% once daily for the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adults. Approximately 500 adult subjects with plaque psoriasis will be randomized 2:1 to receive either tapinarof cream, 1% or matching vehicle cream once daily for 12 weeks.
T Cell Repertoire Analysis of Immune Mediated Skin Diseases
This study is designed to identify the cells of the immune system that cause skin disease such as psoriasis and mycosis fungoides. Blood samples from many patients will be compared in hopes of finding common cells and molecules responsible for skin diseases. Results of this study will increase our knowledge about immune mediated skin disease.
The Effect of NB-UVB on Interleukin-36 Levels in Psoriasis
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated skin disease that affects 1-2 % of the population. Several cytokines have been found to be involved in the complex pathogenesis of this disease. Il- 36 is one of the cytokines sharing in psoriasis pathogenesis, as its levels are elevated in psoriatic plaques. Cathepsin G is known to activate Il- 36 and promote inflammation in psoriasis.NB-UVB is one of the important treatment modalities for psoriasis. The aim of this study is to detect the effect of NB-UVB on the lesional levels of IL-36 in psoriasis.
The Effect of Riboflavin on Moderate to Severe Plaque Type Psoriasis
The purpose of this study is to determine the anti-inflammatory effect of high-dose riboflavin supplementation on chronic plaque 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. Amongst patients with skin disease, there is significant interest in using complementary alternative medicine and vitamins to treat their disease. Previous human case reports suggest that riboflavin, commonly known as Vitamin B2, is clinically effective for the treatment of psoriasis; however, they were not conclusive. More recent...
The Effect of Vitamin D Supplementation on Psoriasis Severity
The study evaluates the effect of oral vitamin D supplementation on the severity of psoriasis measured by Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) in adults with lower vitamin D levels. Half of the participants will receive vitamin D, while the other half receive placebo.
The Inner Ear Function in Psoriatic Patients
Psoriasis in a systemic disease that effects many systems of the body. few studies examined the hearing function of these patients but the results were inconclusive. No study, however, investigated the vestibular function of psoriatic patients. In a prospective study, the investigators will compare audiovestibular function between psoriatic patients and healthy volunteers. .
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 work...
The Norwegian Drug Monitoring Study
Infliximab and other TNF-inhibitors have revolutionised the treatment of several immunological inflammatory diseases. Still, more than half of the patients either do not respond sufficiently to infliximab therapy or loose efficacy over time. The large individual variation in the serum drug concentrations on standard doses and the development of anti-drug antibodies are thought to be main reasons for these treatment failures. An individualised treatment strategy based on systematic assessments of serum drug concentrations, therapeutic drug monitoring, has been proposed as a clinical tool to optimise efficacy of infliximab treatment....
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 study the...
