The goal of this research is to allow researchers to enhance our understand of psoriatic arthritis, in support of developing new diagnostic and treatment options for patients living with this condition.

You may qualify if you:

  • Are age 18 to 85 years old
  • Are diagnosed moderate to severe psoriatic arthritis for at least 6 months
  • Live in the United States

You may not qualify if you:

  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Have a known history of HIV, hepatitis, or other infectious disease
  • Experienced excess blood loss including blood donations defined as 250 mL in the last two months
  • Have undergone treatment with any therapeutic agent directly targeted to interleukin 23(IL-23)(Estekinumab,Guselkumab,Tildrakizumab,or Risankizumab) within 16 weeks from blood donation
  • Have undergine treatment with any therapeutic agent directly targeted to interleukin 17 receptor (IL-17)(Secukimumab,Ixekizumab,Brodalumab) or has received anti tumor necrosis (TNF)-alpha biologic therapy (Adalimumab) within 16 weeks from blood donation
  • Have received Natalizumab, Belimumab, or agents that modulate T cells (Abatacept or Visilizumab) within 16 weeks from blood donation
  • Received JAK inhibitor therapy within 4 weeks from blood donation
  • Have undergone treatment with any agents that deplete B cells (Rituximab, or Alemtuzumab) within 26 weeks from blood donation
  • Are undergoing phototherapy or had phototherapy in the last 4 weeks

Frequently Asked Questions

You can withdraw from the study or decline participation at any time for any reason.

All of our studies and staff are HIPAA compliant and follow all state and federal regulations. We keep your information confidential. Check out our privacy and protection policies to learn more.

Yes. However, to participate in most studies, you will need to provide proof of your diagnosis. Even if you are not currently seeing a physician, you can still sign an authorization for Medical Record Release from your former physician that can serve as proof of diagnosis. Previous medical records can serve as proof of diagnosis.

We may ask you to sign a Release of Medical Records so that we can provide researchers with the data they need to conduct as comprehensive of a study as possible. Your de­-identified medical information will help translate laboratory results from collected samples into clinical information that may be used to develop new therapies and/or diagnostics.

No. We collect blood and other samples from donors in order to provide scientists with quality samples for their research. We do not perform diagnostic tests.
