Priority 5 from the Psoriatic Arthritis PSP
|UNCERTAINTY: Does treating psoriatic arthritis early (or proactively) reduce the severity of the disease and/or make it more likely to go into remission? (JLA PSP Priority 5)
|JLA question ID
|This question explores the role of treating psoriatic arthritis early and whether early treatment could help reduce the disease severity or make achieving remission more likely. If this could be answered, it would allow healthcare professionals to tailor treatment more effectively and avoid the risk of over treating some people. For example, which people would benefit from early biological therapy? Does early, aggressive treatment of psoriatic arthritis prevent long-term joint damage? Does early intervention improve the outcome for milder disease?
This is an area of uncertainty. No systematic reviews or guidelines identified.
