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 ...

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 pilot study to...
