The Diagnostic Ultrasound Enthesitis Tool (DUET) Study
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a type of joint disease that can lead to severe joint damage and disability within the first few years of the disease. This is why early detection and treatment of the disease is essential to prevent serious joint damage and improve long-term outcomes in these patients. However, there is currently no reliable way to tell the difference between PsA and other types of joint disease. This makes it difficult to detect PsA early. Enthesitis is an inflammation of the area where muscle tendons and ligaments attach to bones. Enthesitis is a key feature in PsA and can be easily detected using ultrasonography. The aim of...
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 Epidemiology, Management, and the Associated Burden of Mental Health, Atopic and Autoimmune Conditions in Alopecia Areata
This study series consists of three related studies and aims to explore and describe many important elements of Alopecia areata over three key areas: (i) the current epidemiology of Alopecia areata, (ii) the prevalence and incidence of psychiatric co-morbidities in people with Alopecia areata and (iii) the prevalence and incidence of autoimmune and atopic conditions in people with Alopecia areata.
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 Maintenance Effect of Enstilar Foam in Combination With Otezla
This is a single-center, open-label study. Approximately 30 qualified subjects will be enrolled in a study lasting 20 weeks which investigates the effect of Enstilar used in combination with Otezla to treat psoriasis.
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 work...
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...
The Purpose of This Research Study is to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of SCT630 and Adalimumab (HUMIRA®) in Adults With Plaque Psoriasis
The purpose of this research study is to compare the efficacy and safety of SCT630 and adalimumab (HUMIRA®) in adults with plaque 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.
