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 ...
Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor that is under investigation for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. We evaluated tofacitinib in patients with active psoriatic arthritis who previously had an inadequate response to conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs).
Joint disease and enthesopathy are seen in about one-third of patients with psoriasis and are usually preceded by the cutaneous manifestations of psoriasis. The relationships between the pathogenesis of psoriatic skin disease and the pathogenesis of psoriatic arthritis have not been defined, however, and the central question as to whether psoriatic skin disease initiates development of joint disease remains unresolved.

Tofacitinib is an oral Janus kinase inhibitor that is under investigation for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis. We evaluated tofacitinib in patients with active psoriatic arthritis who had previously had an inadequate response to tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors.
To introduce a novel pre-clinical animal model of psoriatic arthritis, R26STAT3CCD4Cre mice, and investigate the role of Th17 cytokines in the disease pathogenesis.
Psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis without a clear etiology. Biological therapy is key for its treatment, especially in more complex patients. There are several alternatives for biological treatment, but due to its high cost, it is important to evaluate their real effectiveness.
To determine whether a detailed sonographic evaluation of the hand flexor tendon compartment could help differentiate between psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a risk factor for tuberculosis (TB), particularly following treatment with biologicals. Since these therapies are increasingly used in ankylosing spondylitis (AS), other types of spondyloarthritis (SpA) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), we investigated the corresponding TB risks in these patients.
The review gives an updated overview of some of the new concepts in the management of psoriatic arthritis (PsA): early diagnosis, remission as an objective, treat-to-target, and treatment guidelines.
Patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, collectively termed psoriatic disease (PsD), are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (CVD). The purpose if this manuscript is to review recent evidence about the epidemiology and underlying mechanisms of CVD in psoriatic patients and approaches to improve the management of these comorbidities.
We assessed comorbidities associated with psoriatic arthritis in a broad cohort of US-insured adult patients using the Truven Health Analytics MarketScan Database.
The most common types of chronic inflammatory arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. In order to assess the activity of these diseases and tailor therapy, several outcome measures have been developed. They include composite scores based on clinical findings, biochemical markers and patient questionnaires. This article discusses the most commonly used outcome measures and looks at their limitations in quantifying the complex clinical features of different types of...
Fatigue is a significant issue in psoriatic arthritis. The objective was to assess the effect of biological disease modifying antirheumatic drugs and apremilast on fatigue in psoriatic arthritis randomised controlled trials and to compare this effect with the effect in the same trials, on pain, through a systematic literature review and meta-analysis.
Complement activation correlates to rheumatoid arthritis disease activity, and increased amounts of the complement split product C5a is observed in synovial fluids from rheumatoid arthritis patients. Blockade of C5a or its receptor (C5aR) is efficacious in several arthritis models. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of C5a and C5aR in human rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis-both with respect to expression and function. Synovial fluid, blood and synovial samples were obtained from r...
Psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis without a clear etiology. Biological therapy has become key for its treatment, especially in more severe cases. There are several alternatives for biological treatment, including secukinumab. However, it is not clear how effective and safe it is, which is particularly relevant considering its high cost.
The purpose of this study was to compare radiographic outcomes according to the magnitude of the response utilizing three new psoriatic composite disease activity measures (the Psoriatic Arthritis Disease Activity Score (PASDAS), the GRAPPA Composite Exercise (GRACE), and the Disease Activity in PsA (DAPSA). The data were taken from the GO-REVEAL dataset, a large randomised, double-blind, study which evaluated the safety and efficacy of 2 doses of the TNF inhibitor golimumab in subjects with active PsA.
In patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), limited data exist regarding patterns of biologic therapy use.
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthritis, with a strong heritable component, affecting patients with psoriasis. Here we attempt to identify genetic variants within the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) that differentiate patients with PsA from patients with cutaneous psoriasis alone (PsC).
To describe the phenotype of the uveitis that accompanies juvenile psoriatic arthritis or psoriasis.
To evaluate minimal disease activity (MDA) among psoriatic arthritis (PsA) patients receiving secukinumab through 2 years in the FUTURE 2 study (NCT01752634).
Smoking is associated with an increased risk of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in the general population, but not among patients with psoriasis. We sought to clarify the possible methodological mechanisms behind this paradox.
The aim of this study was to systemically review the efficacy and safety of inhibitors of interleukin 6 (IL-6): clazakizumab, IL-12/23: ustekinumab, and IL-17A: secukinumab, brodalumab, and ixekizumab in psoriatic arthritis (PsA).
Enthesitis is an important pathophysiologic component in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) genes are implicated in the pathogenesis of PsA. Little is known about the relation between HLA genetic susceptibility markers and enthesitis in PsA patients. Our aim was to examine the association between HLA genetic susceptibility markers and sonographic enthesitis in PsA.
Biologic drugs, introduced in clinical practice almost twenty years ago, represent nowadays a prominent treatment option in patients with chronic inflammatory arthritis, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis and Spondyloarthritis, that include ankylosing spondylitis and non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis.
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an extracutaneous manifestation of psoriasis occurring in 6% to 42% of patients. Both conditions are common among whites but rarely reported among black Africans.Few African studies, however, have reported PsA frequencies of 0% to 4.6%, with a previous case report of 2 patients from a Nigerian rheumatology clinic.
