OBJECTIVES: To explore the prognostic value of pre-specified comorbidities on treatment outcomes in PsA, and to compare baseline data with cutaneous psoriasis without arthritis and healthy controls (HC).

METHODS: Patients initiating conventional synthetic/biological disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs were enrolled in this clinical observational cohort study, and data on comorbidities, and clinical and patient-reported outcomes were retrieved at baseline and after 4 months. Pearson's chi-squared tests were performed to investigate the prognostic value of pre-specified comorbidities and achievement of ACR20, DAPSA50 and MDA. Mann-Whitney U tests were used to compare OMERACT PsA Core Outcome Set (COS) measures at baseline and follow-up for the pre-specified comorbidities.

RESULTS: A total of 100 PsA patients were included at baseline. Statistically significantly fewer patients with obesity achieved DAPSA50 compared with patients without obesity (P =0.035), and fewer patients with hypertension (P =0.034) and Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) ≥1 (P =0.027), respectively, achieved MDA compared with patients without these comorbidities. Patients with obesity, hypertension, widespread pain, and CCI ≥1 had significantly worse COS measures at follow-up compared with patients without these comorbidities. At baseline, patients with PsA had higher disease burden compared with patients with cutaneous psoriasis and HC, including higher pain (P <0.001) and fatigue (P <0.001) scores, and more widespread pain (P =0.002).

CONCLUSION: Obesity, hypertension and CCI ≥1 were prognostic factors for poorer treatment outcome rates in PsA. Pain and fatigue were more frequently reported among patients with PsA compared with patients with cutaneous psoriasis and HC.
