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

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 ...

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

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

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 ...


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.


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 ...

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

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 ...
