A Study to Test Whether Spesolimab Helps People With Generalized Pustular Psoriasis Who Need Treatment for Repeated Flares
This study is open to adults with a serious skin disease called generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) who have repeated flares of GPP. The purpose of this study is to find out whether a medicine called spesolimab helps people with repeated flares of GPP. Participants are given a single dose of spesolimab as an infusion into a vein on the first day of an outbreak of GPP. They may be given a second dose 1 week later if doctors think it is helpful. They are also treated for additional GPP flares. During the time of the study, doctors regularly examine participants' skin for signs of GPP to see how well the treatment works and take...
bIosimilar of aDalimumab, an European evAluation
The study objective is aimed to describe all country, site, investigator and patient variables that lead to treatment persistence for at least 12 months among patients with rheumatologic and intestinal chronic inflammatory diseases who were switched to FK adalimumab, in order to develop a model to predict persistence at 12 months.
CD4+ T Cells and S100A7 Epression in Normal and Psoriatic Skin: A Histological and Histochemical Study
Psoriasis is one of the commonest and most researched chronic immune-mediated inflammatory skin disorders that affects approximately 1-3% of the population worldwide and significantly impairs patients' quality of life. The most common form is plaque psoriasis, which makes up about 90% of cases, which primarily manifests as sharply demarcated, erythematous, scaly plaques, which can involve any part of the skin but most commonly the extensor surfaces (such as the elbows and knees) and the scalp. Apart from plaque psoriasis, there are also other clinical forms, such as guttate psoriasis (particularly common in children after strep throat ...
Chinese Spondyloarthritis Inception Cohort (CESPIC)
The Chinese Spondyloarthritis Inception cohort (CESPIC) was started 2000 as a prospective, longitudinal, multicentre, nationwide study in China on patients with early SpA including ankylosing spondylitis (AS, also known as radiographic axial spondyloarthritis) and non-radiographic axial SpA. The objectives of CESPIC are to learn about the course of SpA during the very early stage of the disease, to appropriately assess the outcome including radiographic progression of patients after several years of follow-up, to identify outcome predictors, to assess quality of life, function, and costs (direct and indirect costs). CESPIC has been...
Cohort Project of Patients With Inflammatory Rheumatism
Chronic inflammatory rheumatism (CIR) is a group of inflammatory diseases that affect the joints and spine and are related to an abnormal immune response. CIR includes many different forms of arthritis that manifest as painful and swollen joints, stiffness, especially in the morning and persisting even after exercise, and limited joint mobility. CIR can also affect bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Some may affect other organs. These symptoms can lead to a reduced quality of life, limited physical activity and progressive structural and functional deterioration of the joints. Current treatment for CIR is aimed at...
Collection of Samples From Subjects With Various Skin Conditions and Healthy Volunteers
The purpose of the study is to collect different samples for molecular characterization of inflammatory skin diseases.
Comparison of Post-Inflammatory Pigment Alteration After Psoriasis Treatment (PIPA - Dermavant)
The purpose of this prospective study is to evaluate the degree of post-inflammatory pigmentation alteration on legs of study subjects treated with two different psoriasis treatments. Betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% cream is a high potency steroid that is commonly used to alleviate the inflammation of psoriasis. Tapinarof is another medication approved for psoriasis; tapinarof activates aryl hydrocarbon receptors to downregulate inflammatory cytokines (such as interleukin [IL]-17) which play a large role in psoriasis. Study subjects will be randomized to receive one of these medications and will be followed to monitor for PIPA....
Correction of Psoriatic T Cell Signatures by Deucravacitinib
This study aims to assess cutaneous and blood immune cell function of patients with psoriasis before and after initiation of treatment with the Tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) blocker, deucravacitinib.
Development and Feasibility of a Nurse-led Person-centered Education Program
Background Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease causing reduced quality of life. Psoriasis patients are often insufficiently informed about their disease with its treatment possibilities leading to non-adherence of treatment resulting in unsatisfactory patient outcomes. We therefore propose to develop an educational intervention for psoriasis patients; evaluate the feasibility of implementing it in a nurse-led psoriasis-outpatient clinic and compare the psoriasis percentage reduction, quality of life, health literacy and patient benefit, between patients receiving this educational intervention and those receiving standard...
