This exploratory study will be used to identify questions that will be part of a new QoL questionnaire for patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and to determine the sample size needed for its validation. The new questionnaire will be a global QoL questionnaire which will take into account the impact of both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on QoL.
- To evaluate the influence of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on patient's answers to QoL questions from DLQI, HAQ, EQ-5D, FACIT-fatigue and SF-36.
- To identify an equal number of questions from DLQI, HAQ, EQ-5D, FACIT-fatigue and SF-36 where answers are mostly influenced either by psoriatic arthritis or by psoriasis.
This study will recruit three cohorts of 40 patients each: moderate psoriatic arthritis and moderate psoriasis, mild psoriatic arthritis and moderate psoriasis, moderate psoriatic arthritis and mild psoriasis. Eligible patients will fill the following questionnaires: Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI), Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), EQ-5D, Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue (FACIT-fatigue) and 36-Item Short Form Health Survey Questionnaire (SF-36). In addition, each patient will be asked on a 4 point Likert scale how much their answer to each question is related to the impact of their skin disease or their psoriatic arthritis.

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.
