Background: Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) experience diverse symptoms including skin and nail psoriasis, swollen and tender joints, enthesitis, and fatigue that have shown to impair health related quality of life (QoL). We hypothesized that different elements of disease influence SF-36 physical (PCS) and mental (MCS) component summary scores differently. Objectives: The objective of the study was to assess the interaction between change in disease activity (DAS28CRP), PsA symptoms (pso...

However, nowadays, many patients are still struggling to become equal partners in care. Patients with chronic ...

BACKGROUND: Having psoriasis in hard-to-treat areas, i.e. the scalp, face, palms, soles, nails, and genitals, respectively, can impair patients' quality of life. We investigated the prevalence of hard-to-treat body locations of psoriasis, and described patients' clinical and demographic characteristics, and quality of life impacts in a population-based cohort. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study using a total of 4016 adults (≥18 years) with psoriasis from the Danish Skin Cohort. Groups...

: Background: An association between sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and occurrence of head and neck cancer (HNC) is proposed.Aims/objectives: We aimed to determine the association between selected STDs (syphilis, gonorrhoea, HIV) and HNC.Materials and methods: Patients diagnosed with HNC in Denmark between 1978 and 2014 identified through the Danish Cancer Registry were included. Patients were age- and sex-matched in a 1:10 ratio with general population controls. Uni- and multivariate anal...

OBJECTIVE: To validate the UKWP criteria for AD in adults. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, three independent samples of adult individuals were drawn and interviewed: patients with a hospital diagnosis of AD or plaque psoriasis in adulthood, and general population controls.

Safe, inexpensive, and convenient psoriasis therapy is desirable. Two recent case reports suggested that low-dose naltrexone is effective. Cases from our practice are presented in order to further the evidence of efficacy and safety of low-dose naltrexone in the treatment of psoriasis. Patients included 13 females, 2 males; mean age 57 years; mean psoriasis duration 16 years. Of the patients, 8 had psoriatic arthritis. In the past, 5 had completely failed and 10 had partially responded to =1 top...
