Brief Summary:
Safety and Effectiveness of adalimumab (Humira) in Psoriasis Patients in Routine Clinical Practice.

Condition or disease
Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis

Detailed Description:

Postmarketing Observational Study to Evaluate the Work Productivity, Safety and Efficacy of Humira for the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis in Daily Clinical Practice. The primary objectives of the PMOS are to explore changes in health related care utilization data by the evaluation of:

  • the number of missed working days
  • the number of visits to doctor's office
  • the number and duration of hospitalizations
  • work ability to assess efficacy for different subgroups by
  • the number of patients achieving a PASI 75 response to evaluate safety by
  • the documentation and analysis of adverse events for all patients and subgroups with concomitant diseases Secondary objectives include the exploration of changes in quality of life measurements, of the influence of age, gender and duration of disease

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 3000 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Long Term Documentation of the Safety and Efficacy as Well as the Effects on Work Productivity in Patients With Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis Treated With HUMIRA (Adalimumab) in Routine Clinical Practice (LOTOS)
Actual Study Start Date : January 4, 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date : October 31, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : October 31, 2020

Psoriasis Patients
Patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index; number of patients with Psoriasis Area and Severity Index-75 reduction. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]
  2. Changes in healthcare parameters: number of missed working days due to psoriasis; number of visits at the doctor's office; number and duration of hospitalizations, self-assessed workability. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]
  3. Safety and tolerability assessed by analyzing serious and non-serous adverse events. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Global physician's assessment on Humira treatment. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]
  2. Target Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (target NAPSI). [ Time Frame: At 24 months ]
  3. Itch Visual Analogue Scale (Itch VAS). [ Time Frame: At 24 months ]
  4. Safety and tolerability of Humira - treatment for patient groups with frequent concommitant diseases, especially diabetes type I and II, cardio-vascular and liver and kidney functional impairment and respective concommitant medication. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]
  5. Palmoplantar Psoriasis Area Severity Index (pPASI). [ Time Frame: At 24 months ]
  6. Influence of body mass index and weight on efficacy measurement. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]
  7. Patients' assessment on Humira treatment. [ Time Frame: At 24, 48 and 60 months ]
