Therapeutic Drug Monitoring of Ixekizumab in Psoriasis Patients
Biologics, such as ixekizumab, 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 the investigators aim to investigate the predictive value of early serum trough levels of ixekizumab and determine the therapeutic window of ixekizumab in psoriasis patients.

Topical Methotrexate Microemulsion in the Treatment of Plaque Psoriasis
- Psoriasis is a chronic relapsing dermatological disease which often necessitates a long-term therapy and occurs in a significant percent of the population . It affects the skin and sometimes the nails and joints of patients . - Psoriatic patients are frequently categorized into two groups: mild or moderate to severe psoriasis, depending on the clinical severity of the lesions, the percentage of affected body surface area, and patient quality of life . - Topical drug therapy is the cornerstone in the treatment of mild to moderate psoriasis. It offers a direct targeting of affected skin by avoiding...

Ultraviolet Radiation Forecasting Based Heliotherapy For Psoriasis in Bangkok, Thailand
Due to limited number of phototherapy centres and shortage of qualified phototherapy practitioners, heliotherapy has become a promising treatment alternative in Thailand where patients effortlessly receive supervised sun-bathing treatments from their homes whenever they are convenient. We used newly designed deep neural network UV forecasting model developed by using our 10 year-retrospective Solar UV irradiance (280-400 nm) retrieved from a ground based platform at Atmosperic laboratory, Silpakorn University, Nakhon Pathom, Thailand (13.82N 100.04E, 30 m above mean sea level). This model achieved a next-day forecast error of less...
Use of Serum M2BP and MSUS to Predict Arthritis in Psoriatic Patients
Aims of the study: 1. Measurement of serum level of Mac 2 binding protein among patients with psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and subclinical psoriatic arthritis compared with healthy individuals. 2. Evaluation of MSUS findings in patients with PsA and subclinical psoriatic arthritis 3. Evaluation of the role of serum level of Mac 2 binding protein and MSUS in predicting arthritis among psoriatic patients.
Validation of a Dermatology-Specific Treatment Satisfaction Instrument
The primary objective of this study is to validate a dermatology-specific questionnaire that assesses patient satisfaction with their treatments across various inflammatory dermatology diseases.
Value in Psoriasis
Rationale: Currently, the healthcare sector is under tremendous financial pressure, and many acknowledge that a dramatic shift is required as the current system is not sustainable. Furthermore, the quality of care that is delivered varies strongly. Several solutions have been proposed of which the conceptual framework known as value-based healthcare (VBHC) is further explored in this study for psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which is associated with high treatment costs. Objective: The objective of this study is to investigate the impact of using the VBHC framework for the management of...
