Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

- - Sign a participation agreement/Informed consent form (ICF) allowing data collection and source data verification in accordance with local requirements.
- - Able to read, understand, and intend to comply with completion of all Electronic patient-reported outcome (ePRO) instruments.
- - The treatment decision must be taken by the participating rheumatologist prior to, and independently of the participant's inclusion into the study, following clinical practice in accordance with local and overarching guidelines and local regulations.
- - Must sign the substudy ICF allowing data collection in accordance with local requirements.
- - Is scheduled to receive guselkumab or IL-17i, per routine clinical practice, in the main study.
- - Currently using or is willing to use wearables and/or commercial applications to track their disease within the course of their normal daily activities.
Exclusion Criteria:Main study:
- - Start guselkumab or an IL-17i therapy as fifth or further line of biologic treatment.
- - Have already taken a specific IL-17i or IL-23i treatment and are planning on re-taking that specific treatment again.
- - Unwilling or unable to participate in long-term data collection.
- - Received an investigational drug (including investigational vaccines) or used an invasive investigational medical device within 30 days before the start of the study (that is, signing of informed consent) - Currently enrolled in any interventional study or any Janssen-sponsored observational clinical study (contemporary participation into observational studies or registries not sponsored by Janssen is acceptable) Substudy: - Have an insufficient command of language to interact effectively with the smartphone application, in the opinion of the investigator at each site.
- - Any condition for which, in the opinion of the investigator, participation would not be in the best interest of the patient (example, compromise the well-being) or that could prevent, limit, or confound assessment.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a seronegative inflammatory spondylarthritis associated with psoriasis (PsO), which can cause pain and swelling in the joints, sausage-shaped swelling of the fingers and toes (dactylitis), inflammation of the muscle- or tendon insertions at adjacent bone (enthesitis), as well as raised red patches or various other expressions of psoriasis on the skin. Guselkumab (TREMFYA) is a fully human immunoglobulin G1 lambda (IgG1) monoclonal antibody (mAb) that binds to the p19 subunit of human interleukin (IL) 23 with high specificity and affinity, blocking IL-23 binding. Binding of guselkumab to the IL-23p19 subunit blocks the subsequent binding of extracellular IL-23 to the cell surface IL-23 receptor, inhibiting IL-23 specific intracellular signaling and subsequent activation and cytokine production. Participants with confirmed diagnosis of PsA who are starting guselkumab or any marketed interleukin-17 inhibitor (IL-17i) as a first, second, third, or fourth line of PsA biologic therapy per standard clinical practice will be enrolled in the main study. The aim of main study is to document the use of guselkumab and approved IL-17i therapies in routine clinical practice in patients with PsA who are starting guselkumab or an IL-17i as a first, second, third, or fourth line of biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARD) therapy. The overall duration of the main study, including recruitment and follow-up, is expected to be about 6 years. Participants who are starting guselkumab or an IL-17i treatment per routine clinical practice in the main study, and who meet the selection criteria for both the main study and substudy, will be consecutively offered entry into the substudy (a select number) at the time of enrollment into the main study. The substudy aims to collect additional data, continuously or with increased frequency, on the impact of guselkumab or IL-17i on patient mood, physical activity, sleep disturbance, disease symptoms, and health-related quality-of-life (HRQoL). Total duration of the substudy will be approximately 26-30 weeks consisting of a pre-treatment period of up to 14 days before the first dose of guselkumab or IL-17i in the main study and a 24-week (plus [+] up to 4 weeks follow-up) observation period.
: Cohort 1: Guselkumab
Data as available from participant's source medical records will be collected for adult participants with a confirmed diagnosis of Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) who are starting guselkumab as a first, second, third, or fourth line of PsA biologic therapy either as monotherapy or with other medications per routine clinical practice in main study. Participants who meet the selection criteria for both the main study and substudy, will be consecutively offered to be enrolled into the substudy at the time of enrollment into the main study.
: Cohort 2: Interleukin-17 inhibitor (IL-17i)
Data as available from participant's source medical records will be collected for adult participants with a confirmed diagnosis of PsA who are starting IL-17i as a first, second, third, or fourth line of PsA biologic therapy either as monotherapy or with other medications per routine clinical practice in main study. Participants who meet the selection criteria for both the main study and substudy, will be consecutively offered to be enrolled into the substudy at the time of enrollment into the main study.
