Thomas Jonathan Stewart, Alan Saunders
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The standard treatment for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is wide local excision (WLE). Incomplete tumor excision is associated with increased recurrence rates and mortality risk. Risk factors for positive margins after WLE of cSCC has been examined in only a few studies. We sought to assess the influence of several clinicopathological factors on margin status in the largest cSCC population to date. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of records at two skin cancer clinics identifying patients with biopsy-proven cSCC who underwent WLE...

BACKGROUND: Dermatologists are recommended to ask psoriasis patients about musculoskeletal complaints to allow early detection and treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Screening tools have been developed to help identifying patients warranting further rheumatologic assessment, but evidence suggests room for improvement in their diagnostic value and ease of use for outpatient practice. OBJECTIVE: To develop and internally validate a brief tool for dermatologists to screen patients to refer to a rheumatologist for PsA diagnosis...

REVIEW
Paul Yamauchi, Jeffrey Crowley, Primal Kaur, Lynda Spelman, Richard Warren
Biosimilars are highly similar versions of approved branded biologics. In contrast to generics, which are identical copies of the originator medicines, biosimilars are considered unique but related molecules that differ from the originator reference product as well as from each other. Owing to the complexity of biologic medicines, such as therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, minor differences between biosimilars and the reference products are acceptable provided these differences do not result in any clinically meaningful differences in safety or efficacy...
