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 ...

Phase N/A

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

Examination of Radiographic Progression Efficacy and Safety of Long-Term Treatment With Infliximab in Patients With Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology that involves the sacroiliac joints, axial skeleton, entheses and peripheral joints. Chronic inflammation of entheses leads to new bone formation, syndesmophytes and ankylosis of joints, primarily in the axial skeleton. This leads to a dramatic loss of range of ...

Phase N/A

Pilot Open Label Clinical Trial With Abatacept in Ankylosing Spondylitis

Clinical manifestations and prevalence of ankylosing spondylitisAnkylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease which affects primarily the spine and the sacroiliac joints, but extraspinal structures such as peripheral joints, the enthesis (insertion of tendons/ligaments at bone), the eye (uveitis) and the aorta can also be involved. There is a ...

Phase

Prednisolone in Active Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS)

Treatment of inflammatory rheumatic conditions with glucocorticosteroids is a mainstay in therapy. In rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematodes and polymyalgia rheumatica glucocorticosteroids show a prompt effect in regards of musculoskeletal symptoms. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an inflammatory rheumatic disease mainly affecting the spine. However peripheral joints, ...
