Given the role of IL-17 in the development of entheseal-driven pathology, a therapeutic strategy aimed at blocking IL-17 would be a logical option for the treatment of subclinical enthesitis in psoriasis patients. This study will be the first randomized trial of a biologic therapy versus placebo in participants with plaque psoriasis and subclinical psoriatic arthritis, using musculoskeletal ultrasound.
The main objectives of this trial are to evaluate the long term efficacy and safety of different doses of BI 655064 versus placebo as add-on therapy to Standard of Care (SOC) during maintenance therapy for lupus nephritis.
Optional open label, roll over extension study to investigate the efficacy and safety of secukinumab treatment in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) subtypes of Juvenile Psoriatic Arthritis (JPsA) and Enthesitis Related Arthritis (ERA).
This study will investigate BMS-986165 to assess its effects in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of BMS-986165compared with placebo with regard to measures of kidney function in participants with lupus nephritis (LN).
This clinical study will assess the metal concentrations present in the blood serum of patients who receive surgical treatment with the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc at two contiguous cervical levels from C3-C7. The information obtained from this clinical investigation will be used to support the post market surveillance for a PMA supplement for the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc implanted at two contiguous levels.
The purpose of this study is to examine the long-term safety of Abatacept for the treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) with particular in interest in the occurrence of serious infections, autoimmune disorders, and malignancies.
Primary Objective: To evaluate the relative risk of major structural birth defects, specifically a pattern of anomalies, in sarilumab-exposed pregnancies compared to disease-matched unexposed pregnancies. Secondary Objective: To evaluate the risk for sarilumab-exposure relative to the group of healthy pregnant women, and the effect of exposure on other adverse pregnancy and infants outcomes.
