BACKGROUND: Guselkumab, a human monoclonal antibody that binds to the p19 subunit of interleukin 23, has been approved for the treatment of moderate-to-severe psoriasis. Psoriatic arthritis is a common comorbidity of psoriasis with an umet need for novel treatments. We assessed the efficacy and safety of guselkumab in patients with active psoriatic arthritis. METHODS: We did a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2a trial at 34 rheumatology and dermatology practices in Canada, Germany, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, and the USA...

Psoriasis, an inherited disorder of the immune system, presents most commonly in the skin and joints but is also associated with cardiovascular, metabolic, and neuropsychiatric effects. Treatments include topical therapy for mild disease; phototherapy and oral therapy, such as retinoids and immunomodulating agents; and targeted biologic therapies that have revolutionized treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Primary care physicians should be aware of the systemic associations of psoriasis and the treatments available for this disorder...

OBJECTIVE: To develop an evidence-based guideline for the pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA), as a collaboration between the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) and the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF). METHODS: We identified critical outcomes in PsA and clinically relevant PICO (population/intervention/comparator/outcomes) questions. A Literature Review Team performed a systematic literature review to summarize evidence supporting the benefits and harms of available pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapies for PsA...

Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic, immune-mediated, inflammatory arthropathy that presents with inflammation of the joints and entheses, including those of the axial skeleton, and is associated with increased mortality from cardiovascular disease. Diagnosis is primarily based on clinical phenotype because of the diversity of the associated features, which can include skin and nail disease, dactylitis, uveitis, and osteitis. Improved understanding of the pathogenesis of psoriatic arthritis has led to the development of effective biologics and small-molecular drugs targeting specific cytokines and signalling pathways, which can prevent disease progression and improve quality of life...

OBJECTIVES: The Psoriatic Arthritis Impact of Disease (PsAID) Questionnaire is a recently developed patient-reported outcome measure (PROM) of disease impact in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). We set out to assess the validity in an independent cohort of patients, estimate the minimally important difference for improvement and explore the potential of individual components of the PsAID in clinical practice. METHODS: Data were collected prospectively for a single-centre cohort of patients with PsA...

BACKGROUND: Biological therapies are highly effective in psoriasis, but have profound effects on innate and adaptive immune pathways that may negatively impact on cancer immunosurveillance mechanisms. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the risk of cancer in patients with psoriasis treated with biological therapy. METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, Embase, and the Cochrane Library (up to August 2016) for randomized controlled trials, prospective cohort studies and systematic reviews that reported cancer incidence in people exposed to biological therapy for psoriasis compared with a control population...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis, a chronic inflammatory disease that afflicts peripheral synovial, axial, and entheseal structures. The fully human monoclonal antibody ustekinumab is an efficacious treatment for moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. We did a randomised, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial to assess the safety and efficacy of ustekinumab in patients with active psoriatic arthritis. METHODS: In this phase 3, multicentre, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial at 104 sites in Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific, adults with active psoriatic arthritis (≥5 tender and ≥5 swollen joints, C-reactive protein ≥3·0 mg/L) were randomly assigned (1:1:1, by dynamic central randomisation based on an algorithm implemented by an interactive voice-web response system) to 45 mg ustekinumab, 90 mg ustekinumab, or placebo at week 0, week 4, and every 12 weeks thereafter...

BACKGROUND: Brodalumab (anti-interleukin-17-receptor antibody) was effective in treating moderate to severe psoriasis in a 12-week, dose-ranging, placebo-controlled trial. OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate efficacy and safety of long-term brodalumab treatment. METHODS: In this interim analysis at week 120 of an open-label extension study, patients received brodalumab 210 mg every 2 weeks. Protocol amendments reduced the dose (140 mg) in patients weighing 100 kg or less and subsequently increased the dose (210 mg) in patients with inadequate responses...

To increase our understanding of psoriasis, we used high-throughput complementary DNA sequencing (RNA-seq) to assay the transcriptomes of lesional psoriatic and normal skin. We sequenced polyadenylated RNA-derived complementary DNAs from 92 psoriatic and 82 normal punch biopsies, generating an average of ∼38 million single-end 80-bp reads per sample. Comparison of 42 samples examined by both RNA-seq and microarray revealed marked differences in sensitivity, with transcripts identified only by RNA-seq having much lower expression than those also identified by microarray...

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether patients with psoriasis treated with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors have a decreased risk of myocardial infarction (MI) compared with those not treated with TNF inhibitors. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Kaiser Permanente Southern California health plan. PATIENTS: Patients with at least 3 International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification, codes for psoriasis (696...

Psoriasis is a common, chronic inflammatory immunologically mediated disease of the skin, showing a high prevalence of associated comorbidities, and strongly affecting patients' health-related quality of life (HR-QOL), with profound impact on the psychological aspect. We aimed to establish the correlation between HR-QOL and the associated comorbidities in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis in Spain. A cross-sectional, observational, epidemiological study was conducted at 68 dermatology-based centers across Spain...
