AbstractDespite a ballooning therapeutic tool box, treatment responses to newer biologic agents and oral small molecules in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and spondyloarthritis (SpA) are of similar magnitude to those observed with anti ‐Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) medications (1, 2).The PsA and SpA therapeutic outcomes stand in marked contrast to those reported in psoriasis where blockade of molecules in the IL‐23/IL‐17 pathway often provide prolonged, deep responses and in some cases even remission (3). The underlying mecha nisms that account for these divergent outcomes in the skin and joint are not well understood and ...

Authors: Bakewell C, Aydin SZ, Ranganath VK, Eder L, Kaeley GS Abstract Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) affects up to 30% of patients with psoriasis and may include musculoskeletal manifestations such as enthesitis. Enthesitis is associated with joint damage, and early detection and treatment are essential to management of the disease. Traditionally assessed by clinical examination and conventional radiography, entheseal inflammation can now be more accurately assessed earlier in the disease using techniques such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and molecular imaging. However, there is litt...

Authors: Haddad A, Feld J, Zisman D Abstract Several screening questionnaires have been developed to identify patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in the psoriasis population in dermatology and general practice settings1,2,3,4,5 However, the diagnosis of PsA using these questionnaires is a topic for debate, partly because of disease heterogeneity, and the complications from inconsistent performance results6,7,8,9.

Interleukin-17 mediates immunity against pathogens such as Candida. Ixekizumab, an anti-interleukin-17A antibody, showed efficacy treating psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Detailed here are Candida infections from 11 PsO and three PsA ixekizumab studies. Overall, patients received 80-mg ixekizumab every 2 or 4 weeks for 12 weeks (PsO) or 24 weeks (PsA) and then every 4 weeks. Candida (high-level term), six Candida subcategories (oral, vulvovaginal, skin, esophageal, nail, and unspecific), and four fungal infections (esophagitis, oral, oropharyngitis, and vulvovaginal mycotic) were included. Patients were cou...
