The second objective was to estimate the prevalence of MSC in primary care psoriasis patients. Incidence and Clinical Predictors of Psoriatic Arthritis in Patients With Psoriasis: A Population-Based Study. Objective. To determine the incidence and disease-specific predictors of clinically recognized psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in patients with psoriasis. This article is divided into 2 sections: the first is clinical and diagnostic, the second is therapeutic. Current estimates put the prevalence of psoriasis at up to 7.5 million cases in the United States.
To estimate the cost-effectiveness of infliximab among patients with active and progressive psoriatic arthritis. The primary response measure was change in Health Assessment Questionnaire score from a baseline estimated from mixed treatment models drawn from published clinical trials. The tumor necrosis factor inhibitors were significantly superior to palliative care but comparable with one another. The annual incidence of psoriatic arthritis ranges between 0.1 and 23.1 per 100,000, and the prevalence is estimated to be 1.0 to 420. The exact prevalence of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) among patients with psoriasis is still not conclusive. Data in the literature vary between 5. To estimate the prevalence of PsA in primary care patients diagnosed with psoriasis. The second objective was to estimate the prevalence of MSC in primary care psoriasis patients. The estimated prevalence rates are mostly derived from general population health surveys (rather than from disease-specific studies)1- 6 and from specific registries. Though it has been suggested that the ability of a primary care physician to diagnose skin complaints could be poor compared with a dermatologist,27 psoriasis is one of the skin disorders best diagnosed by the GP according to results from a study in the United Kingdom.
The goal of this study was to examine the prevalence of skin diseases, the use of health care by patients with skin diseases, and the relationship between this use of health care and disease-related variables (eg, disease severity and quality of life). As expected, we found a high prevalence of, for example, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. Second national study on morbidity and interventions in general practice. Guideline for the evidence-informed primary care management of low back pain.
