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: Lubrano E, Scriffignano S, Perrotta FM Abstract Introduction: Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by psoriasis, synovitis, enthesitis, spondylitis and association with extra-articular manifestations and comorbidities. Treatment of PsA dramatically changed since the introduction of anti-TNF drugs which have shown to reduce the symptoms and signs of the disease and slow the radiographic progression. Despite the introduction of new molecules with different mechanisms of action, the role of anti-TNF in the treatment of all disease manifestations of this intriguing disease ...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of secukinumab with that of placebo across the updated Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis and Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (GRAPPA-OMERACT) individual PsA core domains using pooled data from 4 phase 3 psoriatic arthritis (PsA) studies and 1 phase 3 ankylosing spondylitis (AS) study. METHODS: Data were pooled from 2049 patients with PsA participating in 4 on-label phase 3 PsA studies (FUTURE 2-5), and the efficacy of each GRAPPA-OMERACT PsA core domain (musculoskeletal disease activity, skin disease activity, pain, patient glob...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare patients with ankylosing spondylitis with psoriasis (ASP) and without psoriasis (AS), to axial PsA (axPsA) patients. METHODS: Two adult cohorts were recruited from the AS clinic: ASP and AS. These two cohorts were compared with two adult cohorts recruited from the PsA clinic: axPsA (radiographic sacroiliitis: ⩾bilateral grade 2 or unilateral grade 3 or 4); and Peripheral PsA. All patients were followed prospectively according to the same protocol. The demographic, clinical and radiographic variables were compared. Adjusted means were used to account f...

Conclusion: While tofacitinib has a wide array of immunoregulatory properties, making it a possible candidate for treating many dermatologic conditions refractory to other treatments, further testing is needed to better characterize its efficacy and utility moving forward, as well as its safety and adverse effect profile.
