BIOTIPRA: BIOmarker-guided Treatment Decisions In Psoriatic and Rheumatoid Arthritis
TNFi drugs remain the most prescribed first-line biologics for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA). However, up to 40% of RA patients fail to respond to TNFi treatment. One explanation of non-response is the development of anti-drug antibodies and low drug levels. Studies have consistently shown that: 1. Drug levels of monoclonal antibodies (e.g. adalimumab/certolizumab) and the presence of anti-drug antibodies in samples taken at 3 and 6 months correlate with 12 month response. 2. Non-responders and those who develop anti-drug antibodies are less likely to receive ...
CBD Treatment in Hand Osteoarthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis.
A randomized, placebo-controlled trial with blinded outcome assessments will be conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CBD in patients with Hand-OA and PsA during a 12-week treatment period.
CF101 Therapy in Patients With Moderate-to-severe Plaque Psoriasis
This trial will test the hypothesis that the administration of CF101, a novel anti-inflammatory agent, to patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis will relieve signs and symptoms of the disease. CF101 effect will be in comparison to apremilast in this study population
Changes in Body Composition Under Ustekinumab in PsA
There is not much body composition and bone mineral density data available for patients with psoriatic arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis) compared to control subjects. The evaluation of the total fat mass and in particular of its abdominal distribution (visceral adiposity) is important because an excessive adiposity generates adverse effects on the health (hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular risk and resistance to the insulin). In addition, data on changes in body composition and bone mineral density were not available under a new psA treatment, namely ustekinumab (anti-IL12 / 23 antibody). It is proposed to conduct a...
Characterization of Immunogenicity of TNF Inhibitors in Arthritis Patients With Poorer Treatment Response.
The aim of the study is to explore whether the influence of gender, tobacco smoking and obesity on treatment response in tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFIs) can be explained by high degree of inflammation, human leucocyte antigen (HLA) type, autoantibodies, TNF and TNFI concentration and presence of ADA.
Characterization of Lipoprotein Composition and Function in Pediatric Psoriasis Before and After Treatment
This study will assess differences in inflammatory proteins, lipoprotein composition, cholesterol efflux and HDL-proteome in moderate-to-severe pediatric psoriasis who at baseline begin systemically administered therapy vs: a) healthy controls; and b) patients with milder psoriasis.
Chinese Psoriasis Real World Evidence Research
This research is a multicenter,observational study under real world settings in patients diagnosed as psoriasis by dermatologist in the clinic. As patient's choice of medication should be fully respected, all the patients can choose the treatments they prefer, like phototherapy, traditional systemic therapy or biologics. And the study was conducted to compare the effectiveness among different choices of medication in Chinese psoriasis patients.
Clinical and Dermoscopic Comparison of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis and Psoriasis Patients' Nails
