    BACKGROUND: Plaque psoriasis affects children and adults, but treatment options for paediatric psoriasis are limited.

    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of ixekizumab (IXE), a high-affinity monoclonal antibody that selectively targets interleukin-17A, for moderate-to-severe paediatric psoriasis.

    METHODS: In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase III study (IXORA-PEDS), patients aged 6 to < 18 years with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis were randomized 2 : 1 ...

    IMPORTANCE: Therapies that reduce psoriasis symptoms may improve work productivity.

    OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of ixekizumab therapy on work productivity, measured by the Work Productivity and Activity Impairment-Psoriasis (WPAI-PSO).

    DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Three multicenter, randomized double-blind phase 3 trials conducted during the following periods: December 2011 through August 2014 (UNCOVER-1), May 2012 through April 2015 (UNCOVER-2), and August 2012 through July ...

    BACKGROUND: Type 17 helper T cells have been suggested to play a pathological role in psoriasis. They secrete several proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-17A (also known as interleukin-17). We evaluated the safety and efficacy of ixekizumab (LY2439821), a humanized anti-interleukin-17 monoclonal antibody, for psoriasis treatment.

    METHODS: In our phase 2, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, we randomly assigned 142 patients with chronic moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis ...

    BACKGROUND: Biologic therapies have been used in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) who have been inadequately treated with conventional disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs).

    OBJECTIVE: Examine treatment patterns and health care costs among patients with PsAs who initiated biologic therapy either as monotherapy or adjunctively with traditional DMARDs.

    METHODS: The MarketScan(®) database was used to identify adults with PsA who initiated therapy with a biologic (with first ...

    BACKGROUND: Previous studies have demonstrated that patients with psoriasis have higher rates of comorbidities compared to the general population. Despite the clinical and economic burden of psoriatic disease, there have been few large-scale observational studies focused on this condition.

    OBJECTIVE: To assess rates of cardiovascular, autoimmune, infectious and other conditions in patients with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis (PSA).

    METHODS: The data for this retrospective study were ...

    BACKGROUND: Itching is a profoundly distressing symptom for many patients with psoriasis, but it has not been rigorously studied using validated tools for this condition.

    OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Itch Numeric Rating Scale (Itch NRS), a single-item patient-reported outcome (PRO) measuring the worst itching severity due to psoriasis in the past 24 h.

    METHODS: Using disease-specific clinician-rated and PRO data from one phase II and three phase ...

    BACKGROUND: Inhibiting interleukin (IL)-23 in patients with psoriasis has demonstrated high levels of skin clearance.

    OBJECTIVES: To investigate, in a phase II (AMAF; NCT02899988), multicentre, double-blind trial, the efficacy and safety of three doses of mirikizumab (LY3074828), a p19-directed IL-23 antibody, vs. placebo in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

    METHODS: Adult patients were randomized 1 : 1 : 1 : 1 to receive placebo (n = 52), mirikizumab 30 mg (n = 51), ...

    BACKGROUND: Itch is a prevalent symptom of psoriasis that impacts quality of life.

    OBJECTIVE: We sought to describe improvements in itch severity, skin pain, and bothersomeness of skin appearance caused by psoriasis among patients who received ixekizumab, etanercept, or placebo in three 12-week, phase III clinical trials (UNCOVER-1, -2, and -3).

    METHODS: The itch numeric rating scale evaluated psoriasis itch severity in all 3 trials. Skin pain was assessed by skin pain visual analog ...

    BACKGROUND: The impact of palmoplantar psoriasis on health-related quality of life (QoL) is largely unknown.

    OBJECTIVE: We sought to compare clinical characteristics and patient-reported outcomes between patients with palmoplantar psoriasis and moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

    METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of patients with plaque psoriasis (N=1153) and palmoplantar psoriasis (N=66) currently receiving systemic or light treatment for psoriasis.

    RESULTS: Patients with ...

    BACKGROUND: In patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis, health-related quality of life (HRQOL) has been shown to improve in parallel with improvement in disease severity.

    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the role of pruritus (itch) in mediating the relationship between improvements in disease severity and HRQOL.

    METHODS: Data from a phase 2 clinical trial, in which 142 patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis received ixekizumab or placebo, were used for this posthoc analysis. ...

    BACKGROUND: Early identification of responsiveness to biologic treatments in psoriasis has significant clinical and economic implications.

    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether early clinical improvements in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) scores could predict subsequent clinical responses in patients treated with ixekizumab, an anti-interleukin-17 monoclonal antibody.

    METHODS: This post hoc analysis was derived from a phase II study in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque ...

    IntroductionPlaque psoriasis is a chronic skin disease where genital involvement is relatively common. Yet health care providers do not routinely evaluate psoriasis patients for genital involvement and patients do not readily initiate discussion of it.MethodsA qualitative study of 20 US patients with dermatologist-confirmed genital psoriasis (GenPs) and self-reported moderate-to-severe GenPs at screening was conducted to identify key GenPs symptoms and their impacts on health-related ...

    Plaque psoriasis (PP) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are autoinflammatory chronic conditions associated with skin involvement. Pruritus, or itching, is a prevalent and bothersome symptom in patients with PP and is associated with reduced health-related quality of life. The Worst Itch Numeric Rating Scale (WI-NRS) has been developed as a simple, single item with which to assess the patient-reported severity of this symptom at its most intense during the previous 24-hour period. Qualitative ...
