Summary of "Psoriatic arthritis : A permanent challenge for rheumatologists and patients - Part 1: epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical course."

Psoriatic arthritis is still one of the big challenges in rheumatology due to the great variety of symptoms. Treatment frequently requires an interdisciplinary collaboration of general practitioners, dermatologists and rheumatologists who are able to recognize the onset of disease early by means of classification criteria and new imaging techniques followed by the implementation of appropriate antirheumatic treatment. During recent years new immunological pathways have been discovered leading to an increasing number of potential therapies, which increases the chance to find effective individualized treatment. However, tracking back the onset of the disease to specific causes is still a challenge which is made even more complex due to the absence of specific serum parameters.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and blocks its interaction with endogenous TNF RECEPTORS to modulate INFLAMMATION. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; CROHN'S DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.

A type of inflammatory arthritis associated with PSORIASIS, often involving the axial joints and the peripheral terminal interphalangeal joints. It is characterized by the presence of HLA-B27-associated SPONDYLARTHROPATHY, and the absence of rheumatoid factor.

A recombinant version of soluble human TNF receptor that binds specifically to TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR and inhibits its binding with endogenous TNF receptors. It prevents the inflammatory effect of TNF and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS.

A polyethylene-glycolated Fab' fragment of TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR antibody that binds specifically to TNF-ALPHA and neutralises it in a dose-dependent manner. It also inhibits the production of lipopolysaccharide-induced TNF-ALPHA and IL-1 BETA and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS and PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS.
