Background Secukinumab (SEC), a fully human anti–IL-17A monoclonal antibody, has significant efficacy in the treatment of moderate-to-severe psoriasis (Ps) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), with a favourable safety profile. The Corrona Psoriasis Registry is an independent observational registry of Ps patients (pts) receiving FDA-approved systemic treatments (TNFis, anti–IL-17s and IL-12/23 and non-biologics) in the United States.

Objectives To assess demographics, clinical features and pt reported outcomes (PROs) of Ps pts with concomitant PsA receiving systemic treatments at registry enrolment.

Methods Adult Ps pts who initiated a systemic therapy at enrolment or in the previous 12 months, and concomitant PsA reported by a dermatologist, were included. Demographics (e.g. age, gender, BMI), disease activity (body surface area, investigator global assessment, psoriasis area severity index) and PROs (pain, fatigue, itch, EQ-VAS 0–100, work productivity and activity impairment and dermatology life quality index) were evaluated at enrolment and stratified by therapy: SEC, etanercept (ETN), adalimumab (ADA), ustekinumab (UST), and non-biologics (Non-B).

Results As of October-2016, 2073 Ps pts were enrolled in the registry; 823 (39.7%) had a PsA diagnosis (mean disease duration 7.6 years) of which 37% were biologic naïve. Of the 823 pts with PsA, 25.4% received SEC, 6.2% ETN, 21.5% ADA, 17.6% UST, and 24.8% Non-B. Pts on SEC had a mean age 53.2 years, mean BMI 32.4; 45% were female; all comparable across the treatment groups. PsA pts treated with SEC had higher Ps disease activity than other treated groups (Table). A higher proportion of SEC treated PsA pts had diabetes and cardiovascular disease (25% and 19% respectively). Mean pain scores were higher in the SEC group; however other PROs assessed at enrolment were similar across treatment groups (Table).

Pt characteristics at enrolment1

Conclusions These data show that Ps pts with concomitant PsA who initiated SEC in the Corrona Psoriasis Registry had higher disease activity, more comorbidities and suffered from more severe pain at enrolment. These differences need to be factored in for future analyses between treatment groups as data mature in this registry.
