  • A Longitudinal Observational Study of Patients Undergoing Therapy for IMISC

    open to all eligible people

    TARGET-DERM is a longitudinal, observational study of adult and pediatric patients being managed for Atopic Dermatitis and other Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Skin Conditions (IMISC) in usual clinical practice. TARGET-DERM will create a research registry of patients with IMISC within academic and community real-world practices in order to assess the safety and effectiveness of current and future therapies.

  • Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to apremilast and to evaluate the safety of this medication relative to specified pregnancy outcomes, and to evaluate potential effects of prenatal apremilast exposure on infant health status through one year of age.

  • Dermatologic Research Evaluation and Monitoring of Sleep in Moderate-to-Severe Psoriasis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Getting enough sleep is important for maximizing health and well-being. When it comes to health, sleep is as vital as regular exercise and eating a balanced diet. Not getting enough sleep can lead to health problems like heart attacks, diabetes, and even cancer. Since individuals with psoriasis have these same health problems, getting better sleep may help to keep them happier and healthier. This study will look at how individuals with psoriasis sleep and if their sleep is different than indivuduals without psoriasis.

  • OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for five years after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • Stelara and Tremfya Pregnancy Exposure Registry OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project

    open to eligible females

    The purpose of the OTIS Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Study is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to certain medications, to evaluate the possible teratogenic effect of these medications and to follow live born infants for one year after birth. With respect to fetal outcome, it is important to evaluate the spectrum of outcomes that may be relevant to a medication exposure during pregnancy, and these include both easily recognizable defects which are visible at birth, as well as more subtle or delayed defects that may not be readily identifiable without special expertise and observation beyond the newborn period.

  • A Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Risankizumab in Adult Participants With Plaque Psoriasis Who Have Had a Suboptimal Response to Secukinumab or Ixekizumab

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate whether adult participants with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who have been treated with secukinumab or ixekizumab for at least 6 months and are experiencing a suboptimal response may benefit from switching to risankizumab with regard to skin symptoms, quality of life symptoms and psoriasis symptoms. Study duration will last for up to 64 weeks with risankizumab given by subcutaneous injection at Week 0, Week 4, and then every 12 weeks for 52 Weeks. An additional visit will occur at Week 8 for a physical exam and questionnaire collection. A final follow-up phone call will occur at Week 60.

  • Efficacy and Safety Study of Apremilast (CC-10004) in Pediatric Subjects From 6 Through 17 Years of Age With Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study of the efficacy and safety of apremilast (CC-10004) in pediatric subjects with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. At least 230 pediatric subjects (ages 6 through 17 years) will be randomized 2:1 to receive either apremilast or placebo for the first 16 weeks and then all subjects will receive apremilast during the 36 week Extension Phase for a total of 52 weeks. Randomization to apremilast arm or placebo arm will be stratified by age group (6 to 11 years or 12 to 17 years). Subjects will receive apremilast treatment of either 20 mg twice daily (BID) or 30 mg BID, depending on weight. This Phase 3 study is being conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of apremilast in the treatment of pediatric subjects.

  • Long-Term Study That Measures the Safety and Efficacy of Deucravacitinib (BMS-986165) in Participants With Psoriasis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The main purpose of this study is to characterize the long-term safety and efficacy of the drug Deucravacitinib (BMS-986165) in patients who have been previously enrolled in an applicable Phase 3 psoriasis study.

  • Nivolumab in Treating Patients With Autoimmune Disorders and Advanced, Metastatic, or Unresectable Cancer

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This phase Ib trial studies the side effects of nivolumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with autoimmune disorders and cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot removed by surgery. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

  • Study of Guselkumab in Skin of Color Participants With Moderate-to-severe Plaque and/or Scalp Psoriasis

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

  • Study of Subcutaneous Risankizumab Injection Compared to Oral Apremilast Tablets to Assess Change in Disease Activity And Adverse Events in Adult Participants With Moderate Plaque Psoriasis Who Are Candidates for Systemic Therapy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Psoriasis (PsO) is a chronic disease characterized by marked inflammation of the skin that results in thick, red, scaly plaques. This study will assess how safe and effective risankizumab is compared to apremilast in adult participants with moderate plaque psoriasis. Adverse events and change in disease symptoms will be monitored. Risankizumab (Skyrizi) and apremilast are approved drugs for the treatment of moderate to severe PsO. Approximately 330 participants with moderate plaque psoriasis (PsO) will be enrolled across approximately 55 sites globally. The study has 2 periods : Period A from Baseline to Week 16, and Period B, from Week 16 to Week 52. In Period A, participants will be randomly placed into 2 groups to receive either subcutaneous risankizumab or oral apremilast for 16 weeks. In Period B, participants who received apremilast in Period A will again be randomly assigned to 1 of the 2 groups to receive either risankizumab or apremilast for 36 weeks. At weeks 28 and 40, participants considered non-responders to apremilast based on their psoriasis score will be offered to receive risankizumab. There may be a higher burden for participants in this study compared to usual standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits per routine clinical practice. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, checking for side effects, and questionnaires.
