WEB-Based Physiotherapy for People With Axial Spondyloarthritis

Background and Rationale Axial spondyloarthritis (axial SpA) is an inflammatory arthritis characterised by inflammatory back pain and includes both ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and non-radiographic axial SpA. Axial SpA is associated with pain and stiffness in the spine and/or sacroiliac joints, reduced spinal mobility, fatigue, reduced physical activity, psychological consequences such ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers Identification of Anti-tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Agent's Efficacy in Ankylosing Spondylitis Patients

To identify new candidate genes and proteins that are differentially expressed in responders' vs non-responders to anti-TNF alpha therapy at the several time points the investigators will use the transcriptomic and proteomic analyses. Demonstrate a link between gene expression and protein markers regarding prediction to anti-TNF alpha therapy efficacy.

Phase

Adalimumab in Alleviating Inflammation in Patients With Axial Spondyloarthritis

Axial spondyloarthritis is an inflammatory rheumatic disease mainly affecting joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joints. Inflammatory pathways are likely the central link from axial spondyloarthritis to the known increased risk of atherosclerotic morbidity. Positron emission tomography (PET) is the most sensitive method to detect inflammatory foci in clinical ...

Phase

Ankylosing Spondylitis and Antiphospholipid Antibodies

Methods Experimental design: longitudinal study prospective in a single center. The Ankylosing Spondylitis Assesment Study (ASAS) criteria are: (1) age <45 years, back pain 3 months, sacroiliitis on imaging and 1 associated minor criterion, or (2) HLA B27 positive and 2 minor criteria. Minor criteria are: inflammatory back pain, arthritis, ...

Phase N/A

AL-2 MP-1 (Polyimide) Acetabular Liner

The procedure involves removal of the diseased parts of the joint, that is the damaged cartilage and adjacent bone, and replacing them with artificial parts which closely resemble in structure and/or function the removed native parts. The artificial parts fit onto the reshaped bone and are fixed either with bone ...

Phase N/A

NSAIDs Added to Anti-TNF Therapy Versus Anti-TNF Therapy Alone on Progression of Structural Damage in Ankylosing Spondylitis

The aim of the proposed trial is to evaluate the efficacy of combined treatment with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) added to anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) therapy as compared to anti-TNF therapy alone on progression of structural damage in the spine over two years in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). ...

Phase

A Randomized Double-blind Placebo-controlled Multicenter Study of Secukinumab (AIN457) to Examine the Clinical Efficacy and the Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID)-Sparing Effect of Secukinumab Over 16 Weeks in Patients With Ankylosing Spondylitis

The current study will assess the clinical Assessment of SpondyloArthritis international Society (ASAS) 20 response to Secukinumab and evaluate to which extent concomitant nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) treatment can be reduced between Week 4 and Week 12 in patients treated with Secukinumab 150 mg or placebo following an initial run-in ...

Phase

Assessment of SpondyloArthritis Society (ASAS) Classification and Diagnostic Criteria for Early Axial Spondyloarthritis (SpA)

Background: Existing criteria for AS/SpA such as mod. New York, ESSG, or Amor criteria for classification and/or diagnosis of spondyloarthritis have limitations when applied to early disease. Moreover, MRI is not part of any of the established criteria and the precise role of MRI in early axial disease has not ...

Phase N/A

OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

- The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of certain medications used in the first trimester of pregnancy with respect to major structural birth defects of newborns. - The secondary objectives of the study are to evaluate the effects of certain medications when used in the ...

Health-Related Quality of Life and Disease-Related Costs: Comparison Between Ankylosing Spondylitis Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in Taiwan

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are the most common rheumatic diseases dealt with rheumatologists in Taiwan. In previous studies, the 3 diseases all have broad impacts on health-related quality of life of patients and drive enormous economic burden on patients and society. The objective ...
