Abstract BACKGROUND: Little is known about the measurement properties of Patient-Oriented Scoring Atopic Dermatitis (PO-SCORAD) in adults with AD. Even less is known about how PO-SCORAD performs compared to the Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM). OBJECTIVE: To examine the measurement properties of PO-SCORAD and compare them with POEM. METHODS: A prospective dermatology-practice based study of 291 AD patients (age 1872 years). RESULTS: PO-SCORAD and POEM were moderately correlated with each other (Spearman rho=0.56); had weak-moderate correlations with Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) worst-itch and av...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Sleep disturbances (SD) are common in adults with atopic dermatitis (AD). Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS™) SD and Sleep-Related Impairment (SRI) are validated questionnaires to assess sleep in adults. Little is known about their measurement properties in adults with AD. OBJECTIVE: To assess the measurement properties of PROMIS SD and SRI 8-item short-forms in AD. METHODS: We performed a prospective dermatology practice-based study using questionnaires and evaluation by a dermatologist (n=420). RESULTS: PROMIS SD/SRI showed moderate correla...

CONCLUSIONS: We found lack of evidence to address our review question: for most of our interventions of interest, we found no eligible studies. The neurokinin 1 receptor (NK1R) antagonist serlopitant was the only intervention that we could assess. One study provided low-certainty evidence suggesting that serlopitant may reduce pruritus intensity when compared with placebo. We are uncertain of the effects of serlopitant on other outcomes, as certainty of the evidence is very low. More studies with larger sample sizes, focused on patients with CPUO, are needed. Healthcare professionals, patients, and other stakeholders may h...

ConclusionsFindings from this literature review and in-depth qualitative interviews supported the development of a comprehensive conceptual model documenting the signs, symptoms and impacts relevant to CHE patients. Such a model is of considerable value given the lack of existing studies in the literature focused on the qualitative exploration of the CHE patient experience. Limitations included the patient sample being only from the US and not including some CHE subtypes.
