BACKGROUND: Enthesitis is a major feature of psoriatic arthritis. However, clinical assessment of enthesitis is known to lack accuracy and have poor interobserver reliability. OBJECTIVE: To determine effect of training on clinical assessment of enthesitis and to compare ultrasonography with clinical examination for the detection of entheseal abnormalities. METHODS: 20 rheumatologists performed repeated assessment of enthesitis in patients with established psoriatic arthritis before and after a 2-hour training session in standardised enthesitis count according to Leeds Enthesitis Index (LEI) and Spondyloarthritis Research Consortium of Canada Enthesitis Index (SPARCC)...

The clinical course of axial spondyloarthritis (SpA) is variable and characterized by chronic back pain and extraspinal manifestations, such as asymmetrical arthritis, dactylitis and enthesitis. Extra-articular manifestations in the eyes (anterior uveitis), skin (psoriasis) and intestines (chronic inflammatory bowel disease) are also frequent manifestations in patients with SpA. Due to the heterogeneity of disease manifestations and the partial concentration on structural alterations in the sacroiliac joints visible in X‑ray images, the diagnosis is often delayed for many years...

In Asia, enthesitis-related arthritis (ERA) is the most-frequent category of juvenile idiopathic arthritis. ERA has a strong association with HLA-B27 and subclinical gut inflammation. In a HLA-B27 transgenic rat model, presence of Bacteroides bacteria in the gut appears to cause spondyloarthropathy (SpA). Thus, we studied gut microbiota in children with ERA. Stool specimens from 33 patients with ERA and 14 age-matched healthy controls were studied; none had any gastrointestinal symptom, or had received a drug known to affect gut motility or microbiota in the preceding 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Although subclinical enthesopathy is a well-established diagnostic criterion for psoriatic arthritis (PsA), it is frequently overlooked, as many patients are asymptomatic. The possibility of finding a clinical clue predicting enthesopathy would help clinicians establish an early diagnosis of PsA. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective single-center study of a total of 90 patients with psoriasis was conducted to assess the presence of entheseal abnormalities as detected by ultrasound, and to determine any correlation with nail involvement...

The inflammatory arthropathies share in common their tendency to produce marked alterations in skeletal remodelling and architecture. This review will focus on RA and the seronegative spondyloarthopathies (SpA), which share common features with respect to their tendency to produce localized bone destruction at sites of articular and peri-articular inflammation. However, there are significant differences in the skeletal pathology in these conditions, which include the unique involvement of the axial skeleton and the presence of inflammation in the extra-articular entheses in SpA...

PsA is an immune-mediated chronic inflammatory disease that affects both skin and joints; it is a heterogeneous disease characterized by synovitis, enthesitis, dactylitis and spondylitis. The impact on patients and the burden of disease are substantial. For assessment of the disease, patient-reported outcomes are increasingly important. Conventional therapy consists of NSAIDs, local and systemic CSs, and synthetic and biological DMARDs. While MTX, LEF, SSZ and CYC are the synthetic drugs mainly used, TNF-α blocking agents have represented the majority of biologics used in the last decade (infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, certolizumab and golimumab)...

Certolizumab pegol (CZP) is a pegylated humanized tumor necrosis factor-α inhibitor (TNFi) approved for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in Europe, the USA, and Latin American countries. CZP neutralizes TNF-α at its soluble and membrane portions. Due to the lack of Fc region, it does not induce complement or antibody-dependent cytotoxicity in vitro, unlike other TNFi. RAPID-PsA study, the only randomized clinical trial performed in PsA, is a Phase III clinical trial conducted in 409 PsA patients during 24 weeks...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a heterogeneous disease that can involve a variety of distinct anatomical sites including a patient's peripheral and axial joints, entheses, skin and nails. Appropriate management of PsA requires early diagnosis, monitoring of disease activity, and utilization of cutting edge therapies. To accomplish the former there are a variety of PsA-specific tools available to screen, diagnose, and assess patients. This review will outline the recently developed PsA screening tools, including the Toronto Psoriatic Arthritis Screening Questionnaire (TOPAS), the Psoriasis Epidemiology Screening Tool (PEST), the Psoriatic Arthritis Screening and Evaluation (PASE), and the Psoriasis and Arthritis Screening Questionnaire (PASQ)...

Alteration of gut microbiota is involved in several chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, and gut microbial "pro-arthritogenic" profiles have been hypothesized. Intestinal inflammation may be involved in spondyloarthropathies and in a subset of patients affected by Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), the most common chronic rheumatic disease of childhood. We compared the fecal microbiota composition of JIA patients with healthy subjects (HS), evaluating differences in microbial profiles between sub-categories of JIA, such as enthesitis-related arthritis (JIA-ERA), in which inflammation of entheses occurs, and polyarticular JIA, non-enthesitis related arthritis (JIA-nERA)...

Geographic differences in manifestation of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) could be related to differences in genetic or environmental factors. We aimed to compare the disease activity and functional status using validated outcome measures among patients with PsA of different ethnicities living in the same environment. We performed a cross-sectional study on consecutive patients with PsA classified by the Classification Criteria for Psoriatic Arthritis (CASPAR) criteria from a single center. Sociodemographic data, clinical variables, and patient-reported outcomes were collected using a standardized protocol...

We have previously shown alterations in the composition of the gut microbiota in children with enthesitis-related arthritis (ERA). To explore the mechanisms by which an altered microbiota might predispose to arthritis, we performed metabolomic profiling of fecal samples of children with ERA. Fecal samples were collected from two cohorts of children with ERA and healthy control subjects. Nano-liquid chromatography-mass spectroscopy (LC-MS) was performed on the fecal water homogenates with identification based upon mass: charge ratios...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease with a broad clinical spectrum. PsA can affect the axial skeleton, peripheral joints, entheses, synovial sheaths of tendons, skin, nails and extra-articular organs. Tumour necrosis factor alpha blockers (TNF blockers) were a breakthrough development in the treatment of PsA. Identifying predictors of response to biological therapies in patients with PsA is of utmost importance, especially in view of the costs and potential side effects of these agents...
