The goal of this study is to get a better understanding of the skin condition, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, and to find out how the disease affects quality of life. The investigators hope this information will help improve treatment for this skin condition.
The goal of this study is to get a better understanding of the impact of the skin condition, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, on quality of life function of patients with this condition. Patients with HS will be asked questions about demographics including gender, age, and ethnicity. They will also be asked to complete questionnaires to determine how their skin condition affects their life. Study participation will last for 1 day, with potential for follow-up in the future.We hope this information will help us improve our treatment for this skin condition.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is an under-recognized and debilitating disease. Patients suffer from recurring painful abscesses and scarring in their armpits, under the breasts, groin and other areas of the body. The cause of the disease is still unknown and common treatments are only sometimes effective. Overactivity of the immune system has been associated with HS and molecules that cause inflammation have been found in the skin from people with HS. Current therapies have long-term risks including antibiotic resistance and the investigators aim to find new safe and effective therapies for HS. Hydroxychloroquine is a medication that has been used safely in other diseases for many years. The investigators believe that hydroxychloroquine has the potential to improve HS through multiple mechanisms. Patients enrolled in this study will be treated with hydroxychloroquine for 6 months. The investigators also aim to look at the blood of patients with HS to look for inflammatory molecules that we could possibly target for the treatment of HS. Blood samples will be taken at baseline and following 6 months of treatment.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful, long-term skin condition that causes abscesses and scarring on the skin.
With microwave ablation (MWA), using the heat generated from electromagnetic waves in the microwave energy spectrum, hair follicles and apocrine glands in the (hypo)dermis are ablated through thermolysis. MWA was recently approved for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis (miraDry) and removal of axillary hair (miraSmooth). By permanent removal of hairs and sweat glands, the investigators hypothesize a beneficial and long-term sustainable preventive effect of MWA in HS patients.
The primary objective of this randomized controlled clinical trial in a real life setting is to evaluate the cost-utility of limumab monotherapy compared with the combination of adalimumab and a maximum of three surgeries after two years of treatment in adult patients with moderate to severe HS.
6 monthly treatments with IPL laser in patients with Hidradenitis Suppurativa. The effect in measured on several severity scores.
Investigators will sample the skin and blood of patients with chronic skin conditions (including but not limited to atopic dermatitis (AD), contact dermatitis, hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), and psoriasis) to study the expression of anti-oxidative enzymes, skin barrier proteins and inflammatory molecules. In patients with atopic dermatitis, investigators will also measure skin barrier function using noninvasive devices. These results will be correlated with the disease severity in atopic dermatitis patients.
Chronic inflammatory diseases (CID) - including inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), rheumatic conditions (rheumatoid arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, psoriatic arthritis), inflammatory skin diseases (psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa) and non-infectious uveitis are treated with biologics targeting the pro-inflammatory molecule tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF), i.e. TNF inhibitors. Up to one third of the patients do, however, not respond to biologics and lifestyle is assumed to affect the treatment outcome. However, little is known on the effects of lifestyle as a prognostic factor (possibly enabling personalised medicine). The aims of this multidisciplinary collaboration are to identify lifestyle factors that support individualised forecasting of optimised treatment outcome on these costly drugs. This prospective cohort study will enrol CID patients assigned for biologic treatment. At baseline (Pre-treatment), patient characteristics are assessed using patient-reported outcome measures and clinical assessments on disease activity, quality of life, and lifestyle together with registry data on comorbidity and medication. Follow-up will be conducted at week 14-16 after treatment initiation (according to the current Danish standards). Evaluation of a successful treatment outcome response will - for each disease - be based on most frequently used primary endpoints; the major outcome of the analyses will be to detect differences in treatment outcome between patients with specific lifestyle characteristics. The overarching goal of this project is to improve the lives of patients suffering from CID, by providing evidence to support dietary recommendations likely to improve the clinical outcome. The study is approved by the local Ethics Committee (S-20160124) and the local Data Agency (2008-58-035). The study findings will be disseminated in peer-reviewed journals, via patient associations, and presented at national and international conferences.
