The MICA-A9 triplet repeat polymorphism in the transmembrane region confers additional susceptibility to the development of psoriatic arthritis and is independent of the association of Cw*0602 in psoriasis. (1/593)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relative contribution of HLA antigens in the susceptibility to psoriasis and to localize additional genetic factors involved in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). METHODS: DNA from 45 patients with psoriasis, 65 with PsA, and 177 healthy control subjects was examined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using sequence-specific oligonucleotide probes to determine HLA-C. To examine whether MICA (class I major histocompatibility complex chain-related gene A) confers additional susceptibility, trinucleotide repeat polymorphism in the transmembrane region of the MICA gene was investigated by radioactive PCR. Further analysis of MICA was made by PCR-single-strand conformational polymorphism to determine the allelic variant corresponding to MICA transmembrane polymorphism. RESULTS: Our results reveal new findings: 1) the frequency of the Cw*0602 allele was significantly increased in both patient groups: psoriasis (corrected P [Pcorr] < 10(-5), relative risk [RR] 6.2), PsA (Pcorr < 10(-6), RR 6.3), 2) the trinucleotide repeat polymorphism MICA-A9 was present at a significantly higher frequency in PsA patients (Pcorr < 0.00035, RR 3.2), whereas a similar distribution was found in both the control and psoriasis population, 3) this polymorphism corresponds to the MICA-002 allele and was found to be overrepresented in patients with the polyarticular form (Pcorr < 0.0008, RR 9.35), 4) the increase in MICA-A9 in PsA patients is independent of linkage disequilibrium with Cw*0602, 5) this allele confers additional relative risk (RR 3.27, etiologic fraction 0.44; etiologic fraction is the proportion of disease cases among the total population that are attributable to 1 allele when the relative risk is > 1) in PsA patients who carry Cw*0602. CONCLUSION: The data obtained in this study are consistent with the polygenic inheritance of psoriasis. Cw*0602 appears to be the stronger genetic susceptibility factor for psoriasis. Independent of the HLA-C association, MICA-A9 polymorphism corresponding to the MICA-002 allele is a possible candidate gene for the development of PsA.  (+info)

Collagenase, cathepsin B and cathepsin L gene expression in the synovial membrane of patients with early inflammatory arthritis. (2/593)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the expression of the matrix metalloproteinase, MMP-1, and the cysteine proteases, cathepsin B (CB) and cathepsin L (CL), in the synovial membrane (SM) of patients with early inflammatory arthritis. METHODS: Samples of SM were obtained by blind needle biopsy or needle arthroscopy from inflamed knees of 28 patients with early inflammatory arthritis (mean disease duration 10.2 months, range 2 weeks-18 months). Sixteen patients had rheumatoid arthritis (RA), nine psoriatic arthritis and there was one each with ankylosing spondylitis, gout and an undifferentiated arthritis. Comparison was made with tissue from two patients with established erosive RA and three normal synovial tissue samples. In situ hybridization was performed using digoxigenin-labelled RNA probes. RESULTS: MMP-1, CB and CL were expressed in all patients with early arthritis and in established erosive RA, whereas normal synovium showed only scanty expression. The three proteases were prominent in perivascular infiltrates and endothelial cells of early arthritis tissue. MMP-1 was observed primarily in the lining layer, but was also evident in the sublining area. CB and CL were expressed to a lesser extent in the lining layer, and were present mainly in the subintima. The three proteases were not found in lymphoid aggregrates. No differences were observed between the disease categories. CONCLUSIONS: The detection of MMP-1, CB and CL in the synovium shortly after symptom onset implies that the potential for joint destruction exists at a very early stage in the disease. In addition, the perivascular and endothelial cell expression suggests a role for these proteases in mononuclear cell influx to the inflamed synovium and in angiogenesis.  (+info)

Clinical and laboratory manifestations of elderly onset psoriatic arthritis: a comparison with younger onset disease. (3/593)

OBJECTIVE: Although the influence of age on clinical and laboratory features has been widely demonstrated in many arthropathies, studies on elderly onset (> 60 years) psoriatic arthritis (EOPsA) are rare. This study compares manifestations at onset and two year outcome of EOPsA with those of younger onset PsA (YOPsA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty-six consecutive PsA patients with disease duration < 1 year, 16 EOPsA (> 60 years) and 50 YOPsA (< or = 60 years) were admitted to a prospective study. Clinical, laboratory, and radiographic assessment were carried out at admission and after two years. HLA class I and bone scintigraphy were also recorded. In 10 patients with EOPsA and 24 with YOPsA it was possible to obtain synovial fluid, which was subsequently analysed for local inflammatory indices, including interleukin (IL) 1 beta, IL6, and IL8. RESULTS: Presenting manifestations of EOPsA differed from YOPsA in number of active joints (mean (SD)) (12.2 (6.3) v 6.7 (4.6), p < 0.001), foot bone erosions (2.7 (1.2) v 1.1 (1.1), p < 0.001), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (64.2 (35.3) v 30.5 (30.0) mm 1st h, p < 0.001), C reactive protein (3.9 (2.0) v 1.3 (1.3) mg/dl, p < 0.001) and synovial fluid IL1 beta (8.0 (4.7) v 3.0 (3.0) pg/ml, p < 0.001) and IL6 (828.2 (492.6) v 469.3 (201.4) pg/ml, p < 0.005). No differences were found in the number of subjects with dactylitis, pitting oedema, HLA-B27, or signs of sacroiliac and sternoclavicular joint involvement at bone scintigraphy. After two years, progression was more evident in EOPsA than in YOPsA, as the number of new erosions in the hands and also the C reactive protein were higher in EOPsA patients. CONCLUSION: PsA has a more severe onset and a more destructive outcome in elderly people (onset > 60 years) than in younger subjects. This behaviour may be influenced by immune changes associated with aging, as suggested by the higher concentrations of IL1 beta and IL6 found in the synovial fluid of EOPsA than in YOPsA.  (+info)

Excessive paternal transmission in psoriatic arthritis. (4/593)

OBJECTIVE: The differential expression of a disease according to the sex of the disease-transmitting parent has been demonstrated in several autoimmune disorders. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether there are differences in the transmission and expression of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) that are dependent on the sex of the affected parent. METHODS: All probands (patients with PsA) were identified from among the patients attending the University of Toronto Psoriatic Arthritis Clinic. A self-reported family history of psoriasis or PsA was noted for each proband. Differences in parental and offspring transmission with respect to the proband were evaluated. In addition, the expression of PsA according to the sex of the affected parent was assessed at the time of the proband's presentation to the clinic. RESULTS: Ninety-five probands had affected parents: 62 (65%) had an affected father, and 33 (35%) had an affected mother. Thus, the proportion of paternal transmission (0.65) was significantly greater than was expected (0.5) (P = 0.001). Twelve of 74 offspring from male probands (16.2%) were affected with psoriasis or PsA, as compared with 9 of 108 offspring from female probands (8.3%) (P = 0.10). Probands whose fathers were affected had a higher frequency of skin lesions prior to arthritis (P = 0.047), an erythrocyte sedimentation rate > 15 mm/hour (P = 0.044), and a lower incidence of rheumatoid factor (P = 0.044). No differences were noted with respect to age at the onset of psoriasis or PsA, the severity of the PsA, or the frequency of HLA antigens. CONCLUSION: There appears to be excessive paternal transmission in PsA. Further clinical confirmation and elucidation of its genetic basis is warranted.  (+info)

A comparative quantitative morphometric study of cell apoptosis in synovial membranes in psoriatic, reactive and rheumatoid arthritis. (5/593)

OBJECTIVES: Inflammatory arthritides/synovitides such as psoriatic (PsA), reactive (ReA) and rheumatoid (RA) arthritis share numerous immunopathological features, but develop different patterns of joint involvement. To investigate whether distinctive cell apoptosis may play a role in this context, we have assessed synovial cell apoptosis in situ in PsA and ReA, and compared it with RA and 'non-inflammatory' controls. METHODS: TdT-mediated dUTP nick end-labelling (TUNEL) of DNA breaks complemented immunoperoxidase staining for CD68 or LCA as the specific cell markers. RESULTS: The proportion of apoptotic synovial lining cells was high in PsA, ReA and RA compared to values in controls (P < 0.05). No differences existed between these inflammatory arthritides in numbers or type of apoptotic lining cells. In RA, however, in contrast to PsA and ReA, apoptotic lining cells were clustered or, in a small subset of samples, were very low in number. Prominent apoptosis of inflammatory cells in the sublining in ReA has accounted for higher overall apoptotic cell numbers in synovial stroma (sublining + perivascular inflammatory cell infiltrates) in this condition than in RA or PsA (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: No disease-specific pattern in the phenotype of apoptotic synovial lining cells could be suggested in any of the inflammatory arthritides studied. However, topological differences in the lining and quantitative differences in the inflammatory cell apoptosis in synovial stroma may in part explain the occurrence of the prominent synovial lining cell hyperplasia distinguishing RA from ReA and PsA. On the other hand, relatively frequent inflammatory cell apoptosis may contribute both to the downregulation of synovial inflammation and to the control of synovial lining hyperplasia in ReA.  (+info)

SAPHO syndrome or psoriatic arthritis? A familial case study. (6/593)

OBJECTIVE: To discuss the relationships between SAPHO (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis) syndrome and the group of spondylarthropathies. METHODS: Few reports of familial SAPHO have been published. We describe three children, two sisters and one brother, whose clinical and radiological presentation was in accordance with SAPHO syndrome. RESULTS: Two children developed psoriasis, and one child palmoplantar pustulosis. Both sacroiliac and sternoclavicular joints were involved in these three cases. Some features in our observations are also common to psoriatic arthritis. No association was found with HLA antigens, but a history of trauma preceding the onset of symptoms was present in all three children. CONCLUSIONS: We can consider that SAPHO is nosologically related to spondylarthropathies. Psoriatic arthritis could be the missing link between SAPHO and spondylarthropathies. It is likely that both genetic and environmental factors are involved.  (+info)

Chromosomal analysis of peripheral lymphocytes of patients before and after radiation synovectomy with samarium-153 particulate hydroxyapatite. (7/593)

OBJECTIVE: Radiation synovectomy may be indicated for the treatment of chronic synovitis. A number of factors may affect its current use, including availability, limited evidence for its efficacy compared to intra-articular glucocorticoid, and concerns regarding the potential long-term effects of radiation exposure, particularly in younger patients. Specific chromosome-type abnormalities in peripheral lymphocytes can be useful indicators of whole-body radiation exposure. The frequency of these aberrations has been shown to increase in patients who have had radiation synovectomy using yttrium-90 by up to five times compared to baseline levels. Samarium-153 particulate hydroxyapatite (Sm-153 PHYP) is a new radiopharmaceutical currently on trial which appears to have less extra-articular leakage than yttrium-90 compounds. The aim of this study was to identify any increase in specific chromosome-type abnormalities, using published criteria, in patients following Sm-153 PHYP synovectomy of the knee. The 10 patients (five men, five women) in whom the analyses were performed had a mean age of 47 yr (range 28-70 yr). RESULTS: There was no increase in scored chromosome-type abnormalities after Sm-153 PHYP synovectomy. CONCLUSION: This study further supports the relative safety of Sm-153 PHYP compared to other radiopharmaceuticals.  (+info)

Clinical, radiographic and HLA associations as markers for different patterns of psoriatic arthritis. (8/593)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine whether the five clinical forms of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) identified by Moll and Wright (Semin Arthritis Rheum 1973;3:55-78) could be clearly distinguished, especially as the disease evolved over time, to analyse whether radiographic features or HLA associations could define subsets with greater precision and to identify predictors of disease outcome. METHODS: Seventy-three patients (37 males and 36 females) were followed for a median time of 8 yr (range 1-16 yr). A standard clinical protocol was used to assess patients at each visit and two clinical scores. based on the joint areas involved, were defined to evaluate the mode of onset and the evolution of arthritis. X-ray films of the hands, feet and sacroiliac joints were taken and the patients were divided into two categories according to the presence or absence of erosions and an X-ray erosion score was also used. Three classification methods were used to define the different clinical subsets. HLA-A, B and DR antigens were tested by standard microlymphocytotoxicity assays. A multiple linear regression model was used in the statistical analysis. RESULTS: The five classical clinical subsets defined by Moll and Wright did not remain since distinct peripheral arthritis patterns tended to evolve over time. Only two discrete groups were identified, axial disease (AD) (sacroilitis with or without peripheral arthritis) in 29% of cases and peripheral disease (PD) without sacroilitis in 71%. AD was positively associated with the duration of arthritis (P < 0.04), presence of mutilation (P < 0.02) and the joint area score over disease evolution (JASE) (P < 0.02). There were erosions in 71% of the patients. Erosions correlated with the presence of mutilation (P < 0.007) and with the JASE (P < 0.0005). HLA-B27 was found in 43% of patients with AD, but only in 11% of PD patients (P < 0.01). No other clear HLA correlations were found. CONCLUSIONS: Despite the relatively small number of patients, this longitudinal study suggests that only two clinical subsets can be clearly defined in PsA, AD and PD; these are primarily determined on clinical grounds although HLA-B27 is strongly associated with AD. The evolution of PD pattern with time means that narrower peripheral arthritis subsets are of little clinical use.  (+info)

Like rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints and connective tissue. The disease causes joint pain and swelling that can lead to crippling along with inflamed and irritated scaly red patches of skin throughout the body. It is a progressive and debilitating disease and because there are no treatments specifically approved for psoriatic arthritis, doctors often use therapies approved for RA, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). However, no DMARDs are currently approved for use in psoriatic arthritis. There are approximately 300,000 patients with psoriatic arthritis in the United States and the disease affects both men and women most commonly between the ages 30 and 50. Psoriatic arthritis patients are generally treated by rheumatologists and dermatologists ...

Celgene International Sàrl, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG), today announced results from a long-term (52-week) phase III trial of OTEZLA, the Companys oral, selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4), in psoriatic arthritis patients who have not had prior treatment with systemic or biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). The data were presented at the European League Against Rheumatism Annual Congress (EULAR 2014) in Paris, France.. Physicians need a variety of options to treat psoriatic arthritis, as treatment is highly individualized and some patients may not be appropriate candidates for biologics or certain systemic therapies, said Alvin Wells, M.D., Ph.D., director, Rheumatology and Immunology Center, Franklin, MN. These efficacy and safety results suggest that OTEZLA monotherapy has the potential to be used for adults with active psoriatic arthritis in the first-line setting, prior to the initiation of DMARDtherapy, and possibly ...
1723 BRIEF REPORT TREATMENT OF PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS WITH ORAL 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D,: A PILOT STUDY DAVID HUCKINS, DAVID T. FELSON, and MICHAEL HOLICK We conducted a 6-month open-label trial in which 10 patients with active psoriatic arthritis received 2 p g of oral 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 daily. Statistically significant improvement was noted in the tender joint count and physician global impression. Of these 10 patients, 4 had substantial ( 2 5 0 % ) improvement, and 3 had moderate ( 2 2 5 % ) improvement in the tender joint count. Two patients were unable to receive therapeutic doses because of hypercalciuria. High-dose vitamin D may be a useful therapeutic agent for psoriatic arthritis. The principal therapies used in psoriatic arthritis are nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), prednisone, and, in some cases, antimalarial agents, gold salts, and methotrexate (1). All therapies have potential toxicity, and psoriatic arthritis is often difficult to treat effectively (I). Recently, ...
What is psoriatic arthritis? It is one of the less well-known forms of arthritis. As its name would indicate, psoriatic arthritis is associated with psoriasis, the common skin condition characterized by inflammation of the skin, scaling, and red raised patches of skin.. It is estimated that approximately 2 per cent of the Caucasian population in the United States are affected by psoriasis, even though it can occur in people from all backgrounds. The skin condition psoriasis most often affects the scalp, face, navel, tips of the elbows, knees, and areas surrounding the genitals and anus. Health professionals estimate that 10 per cent of all psoriasis patients concomitantly develop some form of inflammation in the affected joints. Consequently such patients are classified as suffering from psoriatic arthritis.. Risk Factors. Obviously, one of the major risk factors for developing psoriatic arthritis is the presence of the skin disorder, particularly if it affects the joints. Psoriatic arthritis ...

Introduction: Potential hepatotoxicity associated with disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs [DMARDs] requires laboratory monitoring. In rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis [RA, PsA] patients, we examined the incidence of elevated alanine/aspartate aminotransferase (ALT/AST) enzymes associated with methotrexate (MTX), leflunomide (LEF), and MTX+LEF vs. other DMARDs.. Methods: RA and PsA patients enrolled in the Consortium of Rheumatology Researchers of North America (CORRONA) initiating DMARDs were identified. Abnormalities were identified when either was 1 or 2-fold time above the upper limits of normal (ULN). Odds ratios [OR] between MTX/LEF dose and elevated ALT/AST enzymes were estimated using generalized estimating equations. Interaction terms for use of MTX+LEF quantified the incremental risk of the combination compared to each individually.. Results: Elevated ALT/AST levels (,1x ULN) occurred in 22, 17, 31, and 14% RA patients receiving MTX, LEF, MTX+LEF, or neither, respectively; ...
Background/Purpose:. Filgotinib (FIL) is an orally administered, selective Janus Kinase 1 (JAK1) inhibitor in development for inflammatory diseases. The efficacy and safety of FIL was evaluated in patients (pts) with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) who had an inadequate response (IR) to conventional disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (cDMARDs). Methods:. This was a 16-week, randomized, placebo (PBO)-controlled, double-blind, multicenter, Phase 2 study. Eligible pts had PsA (meeting CASPAR criteria) for ≥12 weeks, active arthritis (≥5 tender and ≥5 swollen joints), prior/current plaque psoriasis, IR to ≥1 cDMARD and prior exposure to ≤ 1 TNF-inhibitor. Pts were allowed to continue cDMARDs during the trial. Pts were randomized 1:1 to FIL 200mg once daily (qd) or PBO. Disease activity was assessed at screening, baseline and weeks 1, 2, 4, 8, 12 and 16. The primary endpoint was the percentage of pts achieving a 20% American College of Rheumatology (ACR20) response at week 16. ...
Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) is an important pro-inflammatory cytokine implicated in the pathogenesis of psoriatic arthritis. We have performed a case-control association study of three TNF-alpha gene polymorphisms in a group of Romanian psoriatic arthritis patients versus ethnically matched controls. A second group of patients with undifferentiated spondyloarthritis was used in order to look for similarities in the genetic background of the two rheumatic disorders. The −857C/T polymorphism was associated with susceptibility to psoriatic arthritis in our population at the individual level (p = 0.03, OR 1.65, 95% CI 1.05-2.57) and in combined haplotypes with the −238G/A and −308G/A SNPs. Regarding the investigated polymorphisms and derived haplotypes, no potential association was found with the susceptibility to undifferentiated spondyloarthritis in Romanian patients.

Psoriasis is a disease in which scaly red and white patches develop on the skin. Those with psoriasis can also develop psoriatic arthritis when the bodys immune system goes into overdrive to attack the skin disease, causing inflammation. Like psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis symptoms flare and subside, varying from person to person, and even changing locations in the same person over time.. Psoriatic arthritis can affect any joint within the body, either in a single joint or in the same joint on both sides of the body, e.g., one or both knees. Affected fingers and toes can resemble swollen sausages, a condition often referred to as dactylitis.. Psoriatic arthritis in the spine, called spondylitis, causes pain in the back or neck, and difficulty bending. It can also cause tender spots at sites in the body where tendons and ligaments join onto bones. This condition, called enthesopathy, can result in pain at the back of the heel, the sole of the foot, or other areas.. Recent research suggests that ...
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA), a form of chronic inflammatory arthritis, is characterized by symptoms of joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. These symptoms occur when the bodys immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue, causing inflammation and damage that limits range of motion and mobility. About 30 percent of people who have psoriasis, or a family history of the skin disorder, eventually develop PsA, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation.. Psoriatic arthritis affects everyone differently. Some people have only one joint involved; others may have three or more impacted joints. Symptoms can be mild and develop slowly or arise suddenly and severely. They can include swelling in fingers and toes, heel pain, an achy lower back, or pitted nails.. Because psoriatic arthritis shares many symptoms with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), its often misdiagnosed, particularly in the absence of psoriatic skin lesions. In a 2018 study, 96 percent of people with psoriatic arthritis received at least ...

If psoriasis has been diagnosed before or at the time the other symptoms of psoriatic arthritis are found, a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis may be easily confirmed. However, when psoriatic arthritis symptoms precede symptoms of psoriasis, diagnosis is more difficult.

Background/Purpose: To date, although several have been proposed, there are no validated remission criteria in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Validated criteria for minimal disease activity (MDA) in PsA have been established. This study aimed to compare sensivity and specificity of different potential remission criteria to identify patients in remission as defined by musculoskeletal ultrasound (US).. Methods: In this cross sectional study PsA patients were consecutively recruited from an outpatient clinic. All the patients fulfilled the CASPAR criteria for PsA. The following potential remission criteria were assessed: (1) Disease Activity Index for Psoriatic Arthritis (DAPSA) ≤3.3, (2) Composite Psoriasis Disease Activity Index (CPDAI) ,2, (3) Psoriatic ArthritiS Disease Activity Score (PASDAS) ,2.4 (4) Booleans definition of remission modified for PsA, meeting all of the following criteria: 68 tender joints (TJC68) ≤1, 66 swollen joints (SJC66)≤1, Maastricht Ankylosing Spondylitis Enthesitis ...

Multidisciplinary Focus on Methotrexate in Psoriatic Disesase ANTONIO MARCHESONI,. There is a need to screen psoriasis patients early for symptoms of PsA. Methods: The questionnaire (PASE; Psoriatic Arthritis Screening and Evaluation) was developed using standardized methodology for the development of both functional and health-related instruments geared toward musculoskeletal diseases. A multidisciplinary team of dermatologists, rheumatologists, and patient focus groups were involved in the design of the questionnaire. Patients with psoriatic arthritis are also at higher risk for psychological distress of anxiety and depression 1. While existing studies 10 - 12 investigate the effects of nursing education on the management of psoriasis, these studies do not focus on the specific type of psoriasis, ...

All the patients were evaluated according to a predefined protocol that included:rheumatology and dermatology clinical evaluation and functional disability ( Health Assessment Questionnaire, HAQ, quality of life score- Short Form36, SF36), PASI and VAI based on Waist Circumference (WC), Body Mass Index (BMI), triglycerides (TG) and HDL cholesterol (HDL) levels. BMI was calculeted in 4 standard categories according to WHO criteria and WC was calculeted according to WHO (cut points 94 cm for men and 80 cm for women).. ...
When psoriasis has been diagnosed, a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis may be easily confirmed. However, when psoriatic arthritis symptoms precede symptoms of psoriasis, diagnosis is more difficult. Although psoriatic arthritis sometimes causes an increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate, or ESR, mild anemia, and elevated blood uric acid levels, these symptoms are also associated with other rheumatic diseases, including gout. ESR is a measurement of how quickly red blood cells fall to the bottom of a test tube. When swelling and inflammation are present, the bloods proteins clump together and become heavier than normal. Thus, when measured, they fall and settle faster at the bottom of the test tube. Generally, the faster the blood cells fall, the more severe the inflammation.. ...
In our study, physical health at last assessment in patients with juvenile PsA was poorer than in controls and patients with either oligoarticular or polyarticular JIA, but not poorer than those with ERA. Physical limitations worsened from a median of 15 to 23 years of disease duration in PsA patients only. The need for DMARD and/or anti-TNF agents after 23 years was greater in patients with PsA than in those with oligoarthritis and tended to be greater than in those with polyarthritis. A history of psoriasis in a patient or firstdegree relative, dactylitis, and ankle or toe arthritis within the first 6 months were early predictors of PsA in children with all JIA subtypes. Additionally, onset after the age of 6 years and HLA-DRB1*11/12 status differentiated PsA patients from those with either oligoarthritis or polyarthritis. PsA patients were younger at onset, comprised fewer men, and were more often HLA-DRB1*11/12-positive and less often HLA-B27-positive than those with ERA. To date, this is ...

Secukinumab for ankylosing spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis Ennio Lubrano, Fabio Massimo Perrotta Dipartimento di Medicina e Scienze della Salute “Vincenzo Tiberio”, Università degli Studi del Molise, Campobasso, Italy Abstract: The treatment of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) positively changed since the introduction of anti-TNFα drugs. These treatments were shown to reduce the symptoms and signs of the diseases and improve the quality of life. However, a variable percentage of patients do not respond to anti-TNFα or can exhibit a loss of response and, furthermore, despite anti-TNFα drugs’ proven efficacy in reducing peripheral radiographic progression in PsA, the impact in reducing radiographic damage in AS is still debated. Recently, the discovery of new pathogenic mechanisms paved the way to the development of new drugs that target other pro-inflammatory cytokines. In particular, the inhibition of interleukin (IL)-17, which is

Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis symptoms were significantly lessened in patients who underwent bariatric surgery, according to researchers from NYU Langone Medical Center. The studys authors suggest that the findings indicate that losing excess weight may improve symptoms in people who have these lifelong conditions. The researchers believe that obesity may contribute to the risk for development of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis through fat tissue-driven systemic inflammation.
Psoriasis occasionally is associated with other systemic illnesses, particularly psoriatic arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis occurs in approximately a third of patients with psoriasis.

Figure 3: Hand and finger joints.. In psoriatic arthritis, unlike RA, there is a tendency for involvement of joints on one side of the body (asymmetry) without involvement of the opposite side. For example, a person with psoriatic arthritis may have arthritis in the right thumb joints but not the left thumb joints.. The inflammation of psoriatic arthritis produces what is typically described as a sausage-like swelling of the fingers. In addition to possibly involving the hand and other peripheral joints (such as the elbow or knee), psoriatic arthritis can cause inflammatory damage to the spine and sacroiliac joints of the pelvis with associated back pain and stiffness. See Can I Get Social Security Disability Benefits for Back Pain?. There are no diagnostic tests for psoriatic arthritis. Increased uric acid levels may lead to a false diagnosis of gout..

Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of subclinical atherosclerosis in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), correlated with some traditional risk factors of atherosclerosis and with PsA-related disease factors. Methods: Forty-one patients and 41 healthy subjects were evaluated for intima-media thickness (IMT) and flow-mediated dilation (FMD), using carotid duplex scanning. IMT values were expressed like IMT mean (cumulative mean of all the IMT mean) and M-MAX (cumulative mean of all the higher IMT). Subclinical atherosclerosis markers were correlated with age, body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure in both groups, with duration of arthritis, duration of psoriasis, tender and swollen joints, BASDAI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index), BASFI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in patients. Results: IMT mean and M-MAX were both higher in PsA patients compared with controls ...
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory joint disease associated with psoriasis. Alefacept (a lymphocyte function-associated antigen (LFA)-3 Ig fusion protein that binds to CD2 and functions as an antagonist to T-cell activation) has been shown to result in improvement in psoriasis but has limited effectiveness in PsA. Interleukin-20 (IL-20) is a key proinflammatory cytokine involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. The effects of alefacept treatment on IL-20 expression in the synovium of patients with psoriasis and PsA are currently unknown. Eleven patients with active PsA and chronic plaque psoriasis were treated with alefacept (7.5 mg per week for 12 weeks) in an open-label study. Skin biopsies were taken before and after 1 and 6 weeks, whereas synovial biopsies were obtained before and 4 and 12 weeks after treatment. Synovial biopsies from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (n = 10) were used as disease controls. Immunohistochemical analysis was performed to detect IL-20 expression, and
Relatively little is known about the risk for incident liver disease in patients with psoriasis (PsO), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), or rheumatoid arthritis (RA). To help better treat this patient population, Joel M. Gelfand, MD, MSCE, and colleagues conducted a cohort study of patients with these conditions, and their results were published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.. For decades, there has been the concept of the psoriatic liver, says Dr. Gelfand. Clinicians recognized that patients with psoriasis seemed to be more prone to liver problems. However, the hypothesis that psoriasis specifically predisposes patients to liver disease has not been rigorously tested. We tested the hypothesis that patients with psoriasis are more prone to liver disease while controlling for risk factors such as obesity and alcohol use. We evaluated these risks in patients with rheumatoid arthritis to determine if the risk appears specific to psoriasis or related in inflammation in general.. The ...

Objectives: To compare efficacy and safety of ixekizumab (IXE) to adalimumab (ADA) in biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drug-naïve patients with both active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and skin disease and inadequate response to conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (csDMARDs). Methods: Patients with active PsA were randomised (1:1) to approved dosing of IXE or ADA in an open-label, head-to-head, blinded assessor clinical trial. The primary objective was to evaluate whether IXE was superior to ADA at week 24 for simultaneous achievement of a ≥50% improvement from baseline in the American College of Rheumatology criteria (ACR50) and a 100% improvement from baseline in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI100). Major secondary objectives, also at week 24, were to evaluate whether IXE was: (1) non-inferior to ADA for achievement of ACR50 and (2) superior to ADA for PASI100 response. Additional PsA, skin, treat-to-target and quality-of-life outcome measures were ...

Psoriasis is mostly a disease that affects at the same time skin and joints. It is sometimes mainly called a skin infections because it causes accumulation and scaling of dermis. This disease is looked into chronic recurring. Psoriasis causes thick, red spots or plaques with silvery -- white scales. These can show often found on in turn, knees, elbows, soles of feet and also on palms and are frequent in claws. Psoriasis is one belonging to the longest known disease or even the illness of humans. To blame for the disease is not yet well known, but it affects both women and men at same rate. There are kinds of psoriasis: Plaque psoriasis: It seems like as raised areas of skin that are classified as inflamed. Flexural psoriasis: It seems like as smooth inflamed plaques to stop skin. Guttate psoriasis: Numerous red spots about the large area. Pustular psoriasis: Appears as raised bumps on pustules which are non-infectious. Nail psoriasis: Appears turning out to be discoloring nail plates none ...
Arthritis literally means inflammation. Annually, millions of Americans have problems with this malady especially those who work in their fifties. But recent studies revealed that some persons into their twenties already have Arthritis. The usual types of Arthritis try to be OsteoArthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. OsteoArthritis is a degenerative joint disease which stems from erosion and destruction of the cartilage. The cartilage will be a tissue that absorbs shocks with regard to the joints caused by questions, wear and tear, tire, improper nutrition, genetics, metabolic rate and endocrine factors. Usual Symptoms are pain frustrated by movement, stiffness and included in worsening cases, sufferers start to come to experience limitations of movement that can result in disability. Rheumatoid Arthritis will be a systemic autoimmune disease: meaning the persons immune make attacks certain tissues in the childs body particularly the joints the actual synovium. Symptoms are purple, stiff painful ...

Background Pentraxin 3 is proposed to be a marker of inflammation and cardiovascular risk, but its role in inflammatory rheumatic diseases (IRDs) is still uncertain. Therefore, we wanted to examine if anti-rheumatic treatment reduced serum PTX3 (s-PTX3) levels in IRDs, and if s-PTX3 levels were related to other markers of inflammation and to endothelial function (EF). Methods We examined s-PTX3, EF and established inflammatory biomarkers in 114 IRD patients from the PSARA study before and after 6 weeks and 6 months of treatment with methotrexate (MTX) or anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha (anti-TNF) therapy with or without MTX co-medication. Results s-PTX3 levels in all IRD diagnoses were above the upper limit of the reference range. In contrast to established inflammatory markers, in particular CRP and ESR, s-PTX3 levels did not change significantly after 6 weeks and 6 months of anti-rheumatic therapy. There was no difference in change in s-PTX3 levels from baseline to 6 weeks and 6 months between

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows objective assessment of both inflammation (disease activity) and damage in arthritic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and osteoarthritis (OA). MRI provides important insights into how these diseases progress and very importantly for OMERACT it provides objective measures of response to treatments, as clinical examination findings of tender and swollen joints can be quite unreliable.. MRI is therefore now frequently used as an outcome measure across rheumatology clinical trials. The OMERACT MRI in Arthritis Working Group has been instrumental in this. The group has developed and validated the OMERACT rheumatoid arthritis MRI score (RAMRIS), evaluating the key features of activity and damage in the joints; this method is now the standard used in RA trials using MRI. Furthermore, the group has developed and validated a psoriatic arthritis (PsA) MRI scoring method (PsAMRIS), a hand osteoarthritis (OA) MRI scoring system ...
PASI determines psoriasis severity based on lesion severity and percentage of body surface area (BSA) affected. Lesion severity is assessed for erythema, induration, and scaling evaluated separately for the head and neck, upper limbs, trunk, and lower limbs and then rated for each body area according to a 5 point scale: 0=no involvement; 1=slight; 2=moderate; 3=marked; 4=very marked. BSA involvement is the extent (%) of body area affected by psoriasis and is assigned a numerical score: 0=no involvement; 1=0% to 9%; 2=10% to 29%; 3=30% to 49%; 4=50% to 69%; 5=70% to 89%; 6=90% to 100%. In each area, the sum of the severity rating scores is multiplied by the score representing the percentage of this area involved by psoriasis, multiplied by a weighting factor (head 0.1; upper limbs 0.2; trunk 0.3; lower limbs 0.4).
