OBJECTIVES: There is a high prevalence of undiagnosed psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in psoriasis patients. Identifying soluble biomarkers for PsA will help in screening psoriasis patients for appropriate rheumatology referral. We therefore aimed to investigate whether serum levels of novel markers previously discovered by quantitative mass spectrometric (MS) analysis of synovial fluid and skin biopsies, performs better than CRP in differentiating PsA patients from those with psoriasis without PsA (PsC)...

Objective Digital ulcers (DUs) are a major problem in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc), causing severe pain, and impairment of hand function. In addition, DUs heal slowly and sometimes become infected, which can lead to gangrene and necessitate amputation, without appropriate intervention. A reliable, objective method for assessing DU healing or progression is needed in both clinical and research arenas. The objectives were: (1) to compare two digital planimetry methods of DU area measurement (ellipse and free hand region-of-interest [ROI]) applied to photographs of DUs, and (2) to assess reliability of photographic calibration and the two area measurement methods...

OBJECTIVE: Non-adherence to DMARDs is common, worsens during the treatment course, and results in adverse outcomes. We studied whether patient navigators - laypersons trained in care coordination, motivational interviewing, basic pharmacology and disease management- improved oral DMARD adherence. METHODS: We enrolled 107 patients aged ≥18 years with systemic rheumatic diseases who initiated an oral DMARD within 6 months. Navigators interacted with patients up to 2-4 times per week for 6 months...

OBJECTIVE: Patient refusal of and nonadherence to treatment with disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) can adversely affect disease outcomes in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This qualitative study describes how RA patients' feelings in response to experiences and information affected their decisions to accept (agree to adopt, initiate and implement) or resist (refuse, avoid and discontinue) DMARD treatment regimens. METHODS: 48 RA patients were interviewed about their experiences making decisions about DMARDs...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate willingness to pay (WTP) for treatment with infliximab by patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and explore factors associated with WTP. METHODS: Data were used from 85 patients participating in the European AS Infliximab Cohort (EASIC) open-label extension of the AS Study for the Evaluation of Recombinant Infliximab Therapy (ASSERT). WTP was included at baseline of EASIC and comprised a hypothetical scenario exploring whether the patient would be willing to pay for beneficial effects of infliximab and, if so, what amount they would be willing to pay per administration...

OBJECTIVE: Some sources urge caution when prescribing hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, presumably due to a risk of hemolytic anemia. There is limited published data, however, to support this risk. Additionally, not all patients with G6PD deficiency are at similar risk for hemolysis, and people with the African variant are at particularly low risk. Through a retrospective chart review, we aimed to quantify the frequency of G6PD deficient patients with hemolysis attributed to HCQ...

OBJECTIVE: Treat-to-target approaches have proved to be effective in rheumatoid arthritis, but have not been studied in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). This study was undertaken to examine the cost effectiveness of tight control (TC) of inflammation in early psoriatic arthritis compared to standard care (SC). METHODS: Cost effectiveness analyses were undertaken alongside a UK-based, open-label, multicentre, randomised controlled trial. Taking the perspective of the healthcare sector, effectiveness was measured using EQ-5D-3L which allows the calculation of quality-adjusted life years (QALYs)...
