Brief Summary:

Identification of possible markers associated with the onset and / or progression of psoriatic arthritis through comparison in patients with psoriasis alone (Ps) and patients with psoriasis with joint involvement (PsA), plasma levels of a panel of cytokines referable to the Th17 pathway , together with serum levels of MMPs, TIMPs and markers of bone remodeling.

The primary objective of this study is to verify whether the arthropathy component has an effect on the metabolic activity of osteoblasts. This will be determined through the study of the differences in serum concentrations, between Ps and PsA subjects, of "CTx", the parameter best characterized in terms of analytical variability and intra- and inter-individual variability, in the field of bone metabolism.

The secondary objective is the verification of the differences in serum concentrations of the series of parameters specified above, in order to define a complete pattern of variations that can identify the molecular pathways involved in the definition of psoriatic arthropathy.
