Remicade Study in Psoriatic Arthritis Patients Of Methotrexate-NaÃ¯ve Disease (RESPOND) (Study P04422AM1)(COMPLETED)
This study is undertaken to compare the efficacy and onset of action of infliximab plus methotrexate (IFX + MTX) versus methotrexate alone (MTX) in methotrexate naïve active psoriatic arthritis patients.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Infliximab + methotrexate (IFX + MTX), Methotrexate (MTX)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An antineoplastic antimetabolite with immunosuppressant properties. It is an inhibitor of TETRAHYDROFOLATE DEHYDROGENASE and prevents the formation of tetrahydrofolate, necessary for synthesis of thymidylate, an essential component of DNA.
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.
Heterogeneous group of arthritic diseases sharing clinical and radiologic features. They are associated with the HLA-B27 ANTIGEN and some with a triggering infection. Most involve the axial joints in the SPINE, particularly the SACROILIAC JOINT, but can also involve asymmetric peripheral joints. Subsets include ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; REACTIVE ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS; and others.
An enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the reaction 7,8-dihyrofolate and NADPH to yield 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate and NADPH+, producing reduced folate for amino acid metabolism, purine ring synthesis, and the formation of deoxythymidine monophosphate. Methotrexate and other folic acid antagonists used as chemotherapeutic drugs act by inhibiting this enzyme. (Dorland, 27th ed) EC 22.214.171.124.
A rare, benign rheumatologic disorder or syndrome characterized by hyperostosis and soft tissue ossification between the clavicles and the anterior part of the upper ribs. It is often associated with the dermatologic disorder palmoplantar pustulosis, particularly in Japan. Careful diagnosis is required to distinguish it from psoriatic arthritis, OSTEITIS DEFORMANS, and other diseases. Spondylitis of pustulosis palmaris et plantaris is one of the possible causes; also, evidence suggests one origin may be bone infection. Bone imaging is especially useful for diagnosis. It was originally described by Sonozaki in 1974.
The purpose of the study is to compare the effects of methotrexate (MTX) alone or in combination with intravenous (IV) methylprednisolone (MP) or infliximab (IFX) on MRI-detected synovitis...
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if Abatacept in combination with Methotrexate and Infliximab demonstrate a greater reduction in disease activity over placebo.
This is a Phase 3b, randomized, parallel-group, multicenter, active-controlled, open-label study of the efficacy and safety of infliximab compared with methotrexate (MTX) in the treatment...
The purpose of this study is to determine if Infliximab is safe and effective in the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. Infliximab (Remicade) targets specific proteins in the body's immune...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of infliximab (an anti-TNF chimeric monoclonal antibody [cA2]) in patients with active Rheumatoid Arthritis, despite m...
A 50-year-old male with psoriatic arthritis since 20 years and on methotrexate since 12 years developed an asymptomatic black patch over his right sole of two years duration. On examination, patient h...
Methotrexate and infliximab are effective therapies for Crohn's disease (CD). In the combination of maintenance methotrexate-infliximab trial, we evaluated the potential superiority of combination the...
Abstract Arthritis associated with Behçet's disease is typically nonerosive and nondeforming, and most patients respond to colchicine treatment. However, destructive arthritis and refractory arthriti...
To investigate if erythrocyte-methotrexate-polyglutamate (MTX-PG) concentrations in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are associated with disease activity or adverse events.
N5-Formyltetrahydrofolate (leucovorin) counteracted methotrexate toxicity in suspension cultures of Nicotiana tabacum var. Xanthi. Methotrexate at 50 nM inhibited growth of the tobacco cell cultures b...
