    Sammanfattning : Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, JIA, is used as an umbrella term covering a heterogeneous group of chronic arthritis forms in children, many of which have important differences compared to adult arthritis, while others possibly represent similar diseases among children and adults. Classification aims to give a better understanding of the pathogenesis, patterns, disease trajectories and treatment responses. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Psoriatic arthritis: a complex disease : analyses on genetic and serological biomarkers and of comorbidity

    Författare :Kristina Juneblad; Gerd-Marie Alenius; Solbritt Rantapää-Dahlqvist; Lars-Erik Kristenssen; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Psoriatic Arthritis; genetics; inflammasomes; polymorphisms; biomarkers; disease expression; disease activity; cardiovascular diseases; mortality; epidemiology;

    Sammanfattning : Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is a heterogonous inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis. The disease leads to inflammation of peripheral joints, axial skeleton and/or enthesites, and can result in severe destruction of affected joints. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Anti-TNF treatment of chronic arthritis in clinical practice. New assessment method and predictors of efficacy and tolerability

    Författare :Lars Erik Kristensen; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; response; drug survival; psoriatic arthritis; Arthritis; rheumatoid arthritis; adverse events; TNF antagonists;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Treatment of chronic inflammatory arthritis has undergone major changes over the past years following introduction of targeted biological therapies. Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) blocking therapy has been the most important biological treatment of chronic arthritis to date. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are common chronic immune-mediated diseases of the skin and joints. Psoriasis affects approximately 2-3 % of the Caucasian population and about 30 % of all psoriasis patients develop psoriatic arthritis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. A Clinical and Genetic Study of Psoriatic Arthritis

    Sammanfattning : Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory joint disease associated with psoriasis. PsA has a heterogeneous pattern, expressed by different manifestations such as mild mono-oligoarthritis or very severe, erosive and destructive polyarthritis. Measurable inflammatory activity is not always prominent. LÄS MER
