The Norwegian Drug Monitoring Study

Infliximab and other TNF-inhibitors have revolutionised the treatment of several immunological inflammatory diseases. Still, more than half of the patients either do not respond sufficiently to infliximab therapy or loose efficacy over time. The large individual variation in the serum drug concentrations on standard doses and the development of anti-drug ...

Safety and Effectiveness of Live Zoster Vaccine in Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Users (VERVE Trial)

Herpes zoster (HZ), also known as "shingles", is caused by reactivation and multiplication of the ubiquitous varicella zoster virus (VZV) that remains latent in everyone's sensory neurons following varicella, or "chickenpox". Among individuals who live to age 85, the lifetime risk for HZ is 50%, and more than one in ...

Phase

Natural History and Development of Spondyloarthritis

The purpose of this protocol is to study the natural history of spondyloarthritis (SpA) in children and adults. Spondyloarthritis encompasses a spectrum of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases that exhibit overlapping features, but differ from other types of inflammatory arthritis in genetic predisposition, pathogenesis, and outcome. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), the most common ...

Phase N/A

Korean College of Rheumatology Biologics Registry

This registry is a multi-centre, prospective, observational program that will gather and analyze data on patients being treated with biologics in Korea. In contrast to a controlled clinical trial, there is no imposed experimental intervention and solely the patients' physicians will determine the patient's treatment. Thus, the data captured and ...

Phase N/A

Interest of Continuous Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug Treatment in Ankylosing Spondylitis Patients Treated by Anti-TNF Therapy in the Prevention of Radiographic Outcomes

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a frequent chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease that affects the axial skeleton, starting in the sacroiliac joints and spreading to the spine in most patients. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the primary treatment for AS. Even if the use of anti-TNF agents has demonstrated good clinical efficacy ...

Phase

The Colonic Microbiome and Mucosal Immunity in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Ankylosing Spondylitis

Changes in human gut bacteria has been shown in patients with autoimmune diseases, such as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The gut flora in ankylosing spondylitis (AS), an arthritis that can occur with IBD, has not been well studied. The immune cells in the colon directly interface with bacteria and may ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Investigate the Clinical REsponses in Ankylosing Spondylitis Patients on Adalimumab Therapy in Taiwan (EAST)

The objectives of this prospective observational study is to explore 1-year clinical response via both Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) and Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Score (ASDAS) after initiation of adalimumab therapy in AS patients from routine clinical practices in Taiwan.

Phase N/A

Prediction of Treatment Response at 6 Months by Combinatorial Analysis of Serum Biomarkers in Biotherapy Naive SpA

The general prevalence of spondyloarthritis (SpA) is 0.5% of the Caucasian population and that of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is 0.3% in France. First-line treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is insufficiently effective in more than half of AS patients in hospitals. These patients are then treated with "anti-tumor necrosis factor ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Secukinumab on Radiographic Progression in Ankylosing Spondylitis as Compared to GP2017 (Adalimumab Biosimilar)

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the impact of secukinumab on progression of structural damage in the spine, as measured by the mSASSS in patients with AS.

Phase

Treat-to-target With Secukinumab in Axial Spondyloarthritis

Comparison of reductions in MRI inflammation in the sacroiliac joints and spine from week 16 to 24 in patients who at week 16 are in ASDAS remission (i.e. continue sc. secukinumab 150 mg monthly) vs. not in ASDAS remission (i.e. increase sc. secukinumab 300 mg monthly). ASDAS remission is defined ...
