Persistence of treatment with biologics for patients with psoriasis: a real-world analysis of 16,545 biologic-na ïve patients from the French national health insurance database (SNIIRAM).
CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that biologics are less effective than physicians have been led to believe in a real-life, non-selected population. Further, long-term disease control requires several courses of different biologics. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Relapses were somewhat more frequent after remission with 4-aminoquinoline regimens as compared to remission after phlebotomy. Prospective studies are needed to better define how often relapses occur with these treatments after documenting both clinical and biochemical remission of PCT.

Efficacy and Safety of Ixekizumab in a Randomized, Double-Blinded, Placebo-Controlled Phase 3b Study of Patients with Moderate-to-Severe Genital Psoriasis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Genital psoriasis (GenPs) is a common, debilitating, and difficult to treat manifestation of plaque psoriasis. However, few controlled, interventional studies of GenPs exist. OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of ixekizumab versus placebo in patients with moderate-to-severe GenPs with BSA≥1%. METHODS: Subjects with moderate-to-severe GenPs (defined as a baseline static Physician's Global Assessment of Genitalia [sPGA-G] score of ≥3) with BSA≥1% were randomized 1:1 to receive placebo (N=74) or the recommended dosing of ixekizumab (N=75). Major outcomes included the percenta...

Profound consequences of hidradenitis suppurativa: a review.
Abstract Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) influences patients' lives in many ways. The most troublesome symptom of HS is chronic pain, of mild-to-moderate intensity, which is reported by almost all patients. With reference to psychosocial evaluation, HS appears to be a highly debilitating disease. The major factors influencing patients' well-being are disease severity, the number of flares or affected skin areas, and the lesion location. The mean Dermatology Life Quality Index scores of 8·3-12·7 points obtained among patients with HS are typical for severe dermatoses, which have a large impact on patien...

The widespread use of topical antimicrobials enriches for resistance in  Staphylococcus aureus isolated from Atopic Dermatitis patients.
CONCLUSIONS: S. aureus from cases and controls had on average similar numbers of phenotypic resistances per isolate. Case isolates differed in their resistance patterns, with Fusidic acid resistance (FusR ) being significantly more frequent in AD (p=0.009). The genetic basis of FusR also differentiated the populations, with chromosomal mutations in fusA predominating in AD (p=0.049). Analysis revealed that FusR evolved multiple times and via multiple mechanism in the population. Carriage of plasmid derived qac genes, which have been associated with reduced susceptibility to antiseptics, was 8 times more frequent in AD (p=0...

A 10 year longitudinal follow up study of a UK paediatric transplant population to assess for skin cancer.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Our earlier study published in 2004 1 found no skin cancer in a cohort of paediatric organ transplant recipients (POTRs) 5 to 16 years post-transplantation. We re-evaluated the same cohort 10 years later. OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence of premalignant and malignant skin lesions and identify known risk factors associated with melanocytic naevi in a UK paediatric transplant population. METHODS: Ninety eight POTRs from the original 2004 study were invited to participate in this longitudinal follow-up study. History of sun exposure, demographic and transplantation details were c...
