Narrative Review of the Emerging Therapeutic Role of Brodalumab in Difficult-to-Treat Psoriasis.

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2022 Jun 7;12(6):1289-1302. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Ortho Dermatologics (a Division of Bausch Health US, LLC), Bridgewater, NJ, USA.

Psoriatic involvement in areas of the body such as nails, palms and soles (palmoplantar), and scalp is associated with dramatically negative effects on quality of life relative to involvement elsewhere in the body. Although numerous evidence-based studies demonstrate the efficacy of biologics for overall skin clearance in moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis (including tumor necrosis factor α [TNFα] inhibitors and interleukin [IL]-17A, IL-12/IL-23, IL-23, IL-17F, and IL-17A/F inhibitors), large, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical studies of psoriasis with nail, palmoplantar, and scalp involvement are needed to better inform decision-making in clinical practice. Moreover, biologic failure caused by drug ineffectiveness is a common occurrence in patients who do not respond, lose response, or are intolerant to treatment. Read More

Usefulness of Ultrasound Examination in the Assessment of the Nail Apparatus in Psoriasis.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 05 5;19(9). Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of Dermatology, Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Clinical Immunology, School of Medicine, Collegium Medicum, University of Warmia and Mazury, 10-900 Olsztyn, Poland.

The assessment of psoriatic nail changes in everyday practice is based exclusively on clinical symptoms that do not reflect the entire disease process in the nail apparatus. The use of imaging methods, especially widely available and inexpensive ultrasonography, creates the possibility of additional revealing and assessing grayscale of morphological changes of the ventral nail plate, nail bed, and matrix, as well as the attachment of the finger extensor tendon to the distal phalanx. What is more, it enables the assessment of inflammation severity in the power Doppler technique. Read More

Fungal Infections and Nail Psoriasis: An Update.

J Fungi (Basel) 2022 Feb 3;8(2). Epub 2022 Feb 3.

2nd Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Medical School, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 56403 Thessaloniki, Greece.

The relationship between psoriasis and onychomycosis is controversial, and the exact nature of this association remains to be clearly elucidated. In healthy nails, the compact nail plate acts as a barrier, preventing any infection. In psoriatic nails, the nail plate involvement, together with abnormalities in the blood capillaries, may lead to decreased natural defenses against microorganisms. Read More

Clin Rheumatol 2022 Jul 19;41(7):2065-2069. Epub 2022 Feb 19.

Department of Rheumatology and Immunology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital, 600 Yishan Road, Shanghai, 200233, China.

Nail disease in psoriasis has been found to be associated with psoriatic arthritis (PsA); however, which subtype of nail disease holds greater relevance to PsA remains unclear. This study was performed to explore the associations between three subtypes of fingernail disease (pitting, onycholysis, and hyperkeratosis) and PsA among patients with psoriasis. Patients with psoriasis attending five dermatology clinics in Shanghai between January 2020 and May 2021 were examined for skin, joint, and fingernail changes. Read More

Intralesional Mode of Drug Administration in Psoriasis.

J Drugs Dermatol 2022 Feb;21(2):186-190

The use of various conventional systemic and topical therapies in psoriasis has resulted in various major and minor side effects. Hence, we need to switch to intralesional administration of antipsoriatic drugs, to achieve better safety and efficacy profile. Intralesional drug therapy is most suitable for scalp, nail, and localized and recalcitrant plaque psoriasis. Read More

A pilot study of intralesional methotrexate injections versus triamcinolone acetonide in patients affected by nail matrix psoriasis.

Clin Exp Dermatol 2022 Jun 18;47(6):1165-1168. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

Dermatology Unit, IRCCS Policlinico Sant'Orsola, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine (DIMES) Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Nail disorders in general are difficult to treat and often frustrating, and this is also the case with nail psoriasis, especially when it is limited to the nails, and not affecting joints. The quality of life of patients with nail psoriasis is negatively affected, owing to the chronic course of the disease and frequent relapses. The purpose of this study was to compare treatment response and maintenance of response during follow-up of 12 patients with nail matrix psoriasis limited to a few nails, who were treated with intralesional injections of either methotrexate (MTX) 25 mg/mL or triamcinolone acetonide 10 mg/mL.
