Progress in genetic research on psoriatic arthritis.

Summary of "Progress in genetic research on psoriatic arthritis."

Psoriatic arthritis is a form of inflammatory arthritis found among patients with psoriasis, which can lead to pain, swelling or stiffness in one or more joints and even movement disorders. Epidemiological studies have shown a higher heritability for psoriatic arthritis compared with psoriasis vulgaris. With the evolvement of DNA sequencing, many genes have been associated with psoriasis vulgaris and psoriatic arthritis, which included MHC, TNF, LCE, IL23R, IL12B, TRAF3IP2 and TNFAIP3, though some, such as MHC, IL-13 and PTPN22, have been specifically associated with psoriatic arthritis. These studies have laid a foundation for risk prediction, diagnosis and drug development for psoriatic arthritis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. It supports research into the causes, treatment, and prevention of arthritis and musculoskeletal and skin diseases; the training of basic and clinical scientists to carry out this research; and the dissemination of information on research progress. It was established in 1986.

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.
