Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate treatment retention in psoriatic arthritis participants with STELARA or tumor necrosis factor alpha inhibitor (TNFi) therapies in relation to effectiveness, safety, benefit/risk and to examine clinical response.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Psoriatic Arthritis Drug: No Intervention

Detailed Description:
This is a prospective, observational, cohort study to collect data on adult participants who have a confirmed diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and are starting either STELARA or a new TNFi as a new therapy in a first, second, or third line of biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (bDMARD) therapy. Approximately 1,400 participants will be enrolled into this study, with 700 participants who are receiving STELARA at study entry and 700 participants who are receiving a new TNFi therapy at study entry. Recruitment into the study will continue for approximately 2 years (with the possibility to extend this period if the patient enrollment target is not reached), with a 3-year follow-up period. For each participant, the follow-up period will continue for 3 years (36 months) after inclusion into the study. Participants will primarily be assessed for parameters of treatment retention, clinical response, effectiveness and safety over an observational period of 36 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to Drug Stop or Switch [ Time Frame: Up to Month 36 ]
    Time taken to stop or switch the study drug is evaluated.

  2. Change From Baseline in Disease Activity Score in 28 Joints (DAS28) at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The DAS28 score is a measure of the participant's disease activity calculated using the tender joint count (TJC) [28 joints], swollen joint count (SJC) [28 joints], participant's global assessment of disease activity [visual analog scale: 0 = no disease activity to 100 = maximum disease activity] and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) for a total possible score of 0 to approximately 10. Scores below 2.6 indicate best disease control and scores above 5.1 indicate worse disease control. A negative change from Baseline indicated improvement. European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Good response: DAS28 less than or equal to (<=) 3.2 or a change from Baseline less than (<) -1.2. EULAR Moderate response: DAS28 greater than (>) 3.2 to <= 5.1 or a change from Baseline < -0.6 to greater than or equal to (>=) -1.2.

  3. Change From Baseline in Disease Activity Index for Psoriatic Arthritis (DAPSA) Scores at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The DAPSA score will be calculated by the data collection tool and is the sum of the following: Participant's assessment of pain on visual analog scale (VAS) (in centimeters), Participant's Global Assessment of Disease Activity on VAS, 66 and 68 joint counts for swelling and tenderness, respectively. Joints assessed include the distal interphalangeal (DIP), proximal interphalangeal (PIP), and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joints of the hands; the wrist, elbow, shoulder, acromioclavicular, sternoclavicular, temporomandibular, hip (excluded for swelling), knee, ankle, and midtarsal joints; and the metatarsophalangeal and PIP joints of the feet. CRP level in milligrams per deciliters (mg/dL). Cut-off values for low and high disease activity are <= 14 and > 28 points, respectively, and for remission is <= 4 points.

  4. Percentage of Participants Achieving Low Disease Activity Based on DAPSA Score [ Time Frame: Month 36 ]
    The DAPSA score will be calculated by the data collection tool and is the sum of the following: Participant's assessment of pain on VAS (in centimeters), Participant's Global Assessment of Disease Activity on VAS, 66 and 68 joint counts for swelling and tenderness, respectively. Cut-off values for low and high disease activity are <= 14 and > 28 points, respectively, and for remission is <= 4 points.

  5. Percentage of Participants Achieving Remission Based on DAPSA Score [ Time Frame: Month 36 ]
    The DAPSA score will be calculated by the data collection tool and is the sum of the following: Participant's assessment of pain on VAS (in centimeters), Participant's Global Assessment of Disease Activity on VAS, 66 and 68 joint counts for swelling and tenderness, respectively. Cut-off values for low and high disease activity are <= 14 and > 28 points, respectively, and for remission is <= 4 points.

  6. Change From Baseline in Physician's Global Assessment of Disease Activity (PGA-PsA) Measured on a Visual Analogue Scale at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    Physician's and Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity (PGA) are measured using a visual analogue scale with scores ranging from 0 to 100 (higher scores indicate worse disease activity).

  7. Change From Baseline in Patient Global Assessment of Disease Activity (PtGA) at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The PtGA VAS is a self-administered assessment with scores ranging from "very well" (0 mm) to "very poor" (100 mm) that assesses disease activity over the past week. Proposed categories for interpretation of the VAS score: <10 mm, low disease activity; >= 10 millimeter (mm) but <30 mm moderate disease activity; >= 30 mm but <60 mm high disease activity; >= 60 mm very high disease activity.

  8. Percentage of Participants with Dactylitis Over Time [ Time Frame: Up to Month 36 ]

    Psoriasis skin involvement will be documented using categories: <3 percentage (%), 3% to 10%, and >10% of BSA. The typical method to assess BSA is to consider the surface area of the participant's handprint (palm and fingers) as representing 1% of the body's surface area.

  14. Change From Baseline in Body Surface Area (BSA) Psoriasis (PsO) Skin Involvement at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    Psoriasis skin involvement will be documented using categories: <3%, 3% to 10%, and >10% of BSA. The typical method to assess BSA is to consider the surface area of the participant's handprint (palm and fingers) as representing 1% of the body's surface area.

  15. Percentage Change From Baseline in EuroQoL 5-Dimension 3-Level Questionnaire (EQ-5D-3L) Scores at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The EQ-5D-3L is a standardized measure of health status developed by the EuroQoL Group to provide a simple, generic measure of health for clinical and economic appraisal. Applicable to a wide range of health conditions and treatments, it provides a simple descriptive profile and a single index value for health status that can be used in the clinical economic evaluation of health care. The EQ 5D-3L descriptive system comprises the following 5 dimensions: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression. Each dimension has 3 levels: no problems, some problems, severe problems.

  16. Change From Baseline in the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) Score at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) is a participant completed questionnaire specific for rheumatoid arthritis, consisting of 20 questions in 8 domains: dressing/grooming, arising, eating, walking, hygiene, reach, grip and common daily activities. There are 4 possible responses for each question: 0=without any difficulty, 1=with some difficulty, 2=with much difficulty and 3=unable to do. The score for each of the domains is the highest (worst) score in each domain. A participant must have a domain score for at least 6 of 8 domains to calculate a valid HAQ-DI score which is the sum of domain scores, divided by the number of domains that have a score for a total possible score minimum/maximum 0 (best) to 3 (worst). A negative change from Baseline indicated improvement.

  17. Percentage of Participants Achieving in the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) Response [ Time Frame: Month 36 ]
    The Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) is a participant completed questionnaire specific for rheumatoid arthritis, consisting of 20 questions in 8 domains: dressing/grooming, arising, eating, walking, hygiene, reach, grip and common daily activities. There are 4 possible responses for each question: 0=without any difficulty, 1=with some difficulty, 2=with much difficulty and 3=unable to do. The score for each of the domains is the highest (worst) score in each domain. A participant must have a domain score for at least 6 of 8 domains to calculate a valid HAQ-DI score which is the sum of domain scores, divided by the number of domains that have a score for a total possible score minimum/maximum 0 (best) to 3 (worst). A negative change from Baseline indicated improvement.

  18. Change From Baseline in Psoriatic Arthritis Impact of Disease-12 (PsAID-12) at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The PsAID-12 is a validated, self-administered questionnaire developed by EULAR for use in clinical practice that assesses the impact of PsA on participants' lives. It consists of 12 questions, each answered using a numerical rating scale. Questions related to pain, skin problems, work and/or leisure activities, discomfort, embarrassment and/or shame, social participation, and anger, fear, and uncertainty; and depression are scored from 0 (none) to 10 (extreme), functional capacity and sleep disturbance are scored from 0 (no difficulty) and 10 (extreme difficulty) and coping is scored from 0 (very well) 10 (very poorly).

  19. Change From Baseline in Pain Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) Scores at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The pain VAS is a self-administered assessment of average pain during the past week. The scale ranges from "no pain" (0 mm) to "the worst possible pain" (100 mm). This assessment should be completed prior to the tender and swollen joint examination.

  20. Change From Baseline in Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) Scores at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The BASDAI participant rated components over last 48 hours using 100 mm Visual Analog Scale; components 15: range 0=none to 100=very severe; component 6: range:0=0 hours to 100=2 hours or more. 1) Overall level of fatigue/tiredness experienced; 2) Overall level of AS neck,back or hip pain experienced; 3) Overall level of pain/swelling in joints other than neck, back or hips; 4) Overall level of discomfort from any areas tender to touch or pressure; 5) Overall level of morning stiffness from time of awakening; 6) Duration of morning stiffness from time of awakening, and morning stiffness sub-scale.

  21. Change From Baseline in Work Productivity and Activity Impairment Questionnaire: Psoriatic Arthritis (WPAI:PsA) Scores at Month 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 36 ]
    The WPAI:PsA is a validated, self-administered questionnaire that assesses work and activity impairment during the past 7 days. The WPAI:PsA produces 4 types of scores: absenteeism (work time missed), presenteeism (impairment at work/reduced on the job effectiveness), work productivity loss (overall work impairment/absenteeism plus presenteeism), and activity impairment. The WPAI: PsA outcomes are expressed as impairment percentages, with higher numbers indicating greater impairment and less productivity, that is, worse outcomes.

  22. Percentage of Participants With Change in Employment Status [ Time Frame: Month 36 ]
    Change in the employment status of participants will be evaluated.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious AEs [ Time Frame: Screening up to follow-up (Approximately Month 39) ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. A serious adverse event (SAE) is an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly.
