Emilie Sbidian, Myriam Mezzarobba, Jason Shourick, Cécile Billionnet, Joël Coste, Alain Weill, Jérémie Rudant, Olivier Chosidow, Loes Hollestein, Tamar Nijsten
Current management of moderate-to-severe psoriasis may be heterogeneous between European countries, probably due to differences in the organization of care. The aim of this study was to compare the utilization of systemic treatments for psoriasis between 2 countries. All adults with psoriasis who were registered in the French (SNDS) and the Dutch (VEKTIS) national health insurance databases betwee ...

DNA Copy Number Variation Associated with Anti-tumour Necrosis Factor Drug Response and Paradoxical Psoriasiform Reactions in Patients with Moderate-to-severe Psoriasis
Ancor Sanz-Garcia, Alejandra Reolid, Laura H. Fisas, Ester Muñoz-Aceituno, Mar Llamas-Velasco, Antonio Sahuquillo-Torralba, Rafael Botella-Estrada, Jorge García-Martínez, Raquel Navarro, Esteban Daudén, Francisco Abad-Santos, Maria C. Ovejero-Benito
Biological drugs targeting tumour necrosis factor are effective for psoriasis. However, 30–50% of patients do not respond to these drugs and may even develop paradoxical psoriasiform reactions. This study search­ed for DNA copy number variations that could predict anti-tumour necrotic factor drug response or the appearance of anti-tumour necrotic factor induced psoriasiform reactions. Periphera ...

Simultaneous contact allergies are common in individuals with photocontact allergy to ketoprofen. The rate of contact allergy to the fragrance substances oxidized linalool and oxidized limonene in ketoprofen-photo­allergic individuals were investigated in comparison with the corresponding rates in individuals without photo­contact allergy to ketoprofen, using Fisher’s exact test. A total of 4, ...
