PsA is an inflammatory disease that affects the joints, causing pain, stiffness & swelling. While it may come and go (called flares and remission), it is a chronic (long-term) condition. Most people are diagnosed with psoriasis first (a skin condition that can be itchy and painful), before showing signs of arthritis—but in some cases it is the other way around. However, most people with psoriasis never develop psoriatic arthritis.

COVID-19 update — we remain open.
For the safety of both staff and patients, we require that our research sites are COVID-19 SMART facilities. That means they use best practices to reduce virus exposure and are dedicated to ensuring they remain open and available for the research of investigational medications.
COVID-19 SMART steps we are taking to ensure safety include:
- Greatly increased availability of video office visits
- Ensuring social distancing measures are taken in all waiting areas
- Continuing the practice of cleaning and disinfecting exams rooms thoroughly between every patient visit
- Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all staff members at our health clinics
