Phase 2 study of Avacopan in Subjects with Moderate to Severe Hidradenitis Suppurativa
TARGET-DERM is a 5-year, longitudinal, observational study of adult and pediatric patients being managed for Atopic Dermatitis and other Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Skin Conditions (IMISC) in usual clinical practice. TARGET-DERM will create a research registry of patients with IMISC within academic and community real-world practices in order to assess the safety and effectiveness of current and future therapies.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of guselkumab in adult participants with moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa (HS).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of INCB054707 over an 8-week treatment period in men and women with moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa.

Hidradenitis suppurativa or Verneuil's disease (HS) is a neglected and often overlooked chronic inflammatory skin disease. Nevertheless, it is frequent (1% of the general population) and deeply affects quality of life in patients with moderate and severe forms of HS. This disease is characterized by the occurrence of deep, recurrent and painful nodules, progressing to abscess formation and suppuration. It is usually localized in the axillary, inguinal and anogenital areas. The pathogenesis of HS remains partly unknown but is probably multifactorial (inflammatory, genetic, infectious, etc.) and related to many risk factors (mostly smoking and obesity). An association can be found with other inflammatory diseases such as gastrointestinal and rheumatic diseases like Crohn's disease and spondylo-arthritis respectively. Periodontal diseases are a heterogeneous group of infectious diseases with an inflammatory component. Their clinical expression results in more or less rapid destruction of tooth supporting tissues. Without treatment, these lesions may progress ultimately to tooth exfoliation, the rate of disease progression being unevenly distributed in the population. Various epidemiological studies in France indicate that 12 to 13% of middle-aged adults have severe periodontal damage. In addition, a recent study shows that while 50% of adults in France are suffering from severe attachment loss, generalized forms are rare and about 10% of individuals seem to require special care. The bacterial factor is the main etiological factor of these diseases but their progression depends primarily on the host immune response and on modifying factors (genetic, systemic, environmental and behavioural). Some of these factors are identified such as uncontrolled diabetes, smoking, stress, etc.. Finally, it is well established that periodontal disease may also trigger the development of some systemic diseases such as diabetes. Thus, many common etiopathogenic factors between HS and periodontal diseases such as inflammatory components and tobacco are found. This is corroborated by observations collected from some patients with HS complaining of oral pain exacerbated during acute flares of HS. Hence the aim of this project is to clarify existing potential association between Hidradenitis suppurativa and periodontal diseases using a multicenter cross-sectional descriptive clinical approach. One hundred patients with HS will be included in the departments of dermatology at the University Hospital in Reims and at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. They will be compared with one hundred patients without HS recruited from "general practice" consultations in the departments of Odontology at the University Hospital in Reims and at Bretonneau Hospital in Paris. The severity of HS will be assessed with Hurley's score by the dermatologist. The periodontal status will be evaluated with clinical indices and radiographical parameters by a periodontist according to the "Armitage" classification of periodontal disease and to CDC-AA case definitions updated in 2012. Meanwhile, human saliva is a biological fluid taken to reflect the health status of an individual and is or may be used for diagnosis and prognosis of some oral cancers, some systemic diseases (type 2 diabetes, sarcoidosis, etc.) or periodontal diseases. The saliva will be collected and analysed by proteomics and metabolomics techniques in order to identify biomarkers for diagnosis and prognostic of HS associated or not to periodontal diseases. These unpublished works could demonstrate a predisposition to develop periodontal disease in a subgroup of HS patients and help to unravel new etiopathogenic mechanisms common to both diseases as well as ultimately lead to early periodontal management in order to avoid disease progression and tooth losses.
Phase 2 study of bermekimab in patients with moderate to severe Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
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 Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) on the quality of life 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.
