Does Immunogenicity Have an Influence on the Efficacy of Anti-TNF Therapy in Patients With AS: An Inception Cohort Study

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease that predominantly affects sacroiliac joints and spine. It is the prototype of spondyloarthritides (SpA) and one of the most common rheumatic diseases. Sacroiliitis is the earliest manifestation of disease and accompanying with spinal involvement cause inflammatory back pain (IBP). IBP usually ...

Analysis of DNA Methylation in Spondyloarthritis

Spondyloarthritis covers a group of diseases with common clinical, genetic and radiographic characteristics. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is the most common of these, and is usually diagnosed in the presence of bilateral sacroiliitis by conventional x-ray, according to the modified New York criteria. Axial spondyloarthritis (Ax-SpA) mainly affects the axial skeleton ...

Phase N/A

Investigating the Utilisation and Effectiveness of Originator and Biosimilar Anti-TNF Agents

An observational study investigating the utilisation and effectiveness of originator and biosimilar anti-TNF agents in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or ankylosing spondylitis.

Phase N/A

A Clinimetric Test of Spinal Sensors in Measuring Spinal Mobility in Axial Spondyloarthritis

One of the most important goals of therapy in axial spondyloarthritis is to improve and/or preserve spinal mobility. In the early stages of the disease, spinal stiffness is reversible but eventually the spine can fuse causing permanent loss of flexion. Traditional tests for spinal mobility using tape measures are inaccurate ...

Pharmacist CVD Intervention for Patients With Inflammatory Arthritis

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide and in Canada accounting for nearly one third of the total deaths in both instances.1-2 The majority of CVD cases are caused by modifiable risk factors such as tobacco use, obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and physical ...

Phase N/A

German Spondyloarthritis Inception Cohort

The German Spondyloarthritis Inception cohort (GESPIC) was started as a prospective, longitudinal, multicentre, nationwide study in Germany on patients with early SpA including ankylosing spondylitis and non-radiographic axial SpA. The objectives of GESPIC are to learn about the course of AS and other SpA during the very early stage of ...

OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project, Cimzia Pregnancy Exposure Registry is to follow pregnant women with or without a Cimzia approved indication who have or have not been treated with Cimzia during pregnancy to evaluate the possible effect of these diseases, and or this medication on ...

Phase N/A

Physical Training Program in Ankylosing Spondylitis

AS is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disorder affecting spine, peripheral joints and entheses. Patients undergo pain, stiffness and reduced mobility of spine and joints. Patients experience limitations in physical activities and reduced quality of life. Some uncontrolled studies reported benefits of physical activity in patients with AS. The aim of ...

Phase N/A

Phenomics in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

The family of inflammatory/autoimmune systemic diseases (IAD) represents a large group of human diseases. For most if not all of these IAD, the pathophysiological processes or exact causes remain poorly understood. Progresses in molecular understanding of these IAD have led to realize that these are not two distinct categories of ...

Electroacupuncture for Relieving Pain in Ankylosing Spondylitis

Background: Ankylosing spondylitis imposes burdens on individuals and society that AS costs 3 times higher than general population. Conventional approaches for AS have their limitation. Previous studies demonstrated acupuncture has significant therapeutic effects for AS in diminishing joint pain, enhancing functional disorders and modifying spinal deformity. Although acupuncture is effective ...
