Pneumococcal vaccine response in psoriatic arthritis patients during treatment with etanercept.

Pneumococcal vaccine response in psoriatic arthritis patients during treatment with etanercept. Therapeutics used to treat inflammatory diseases, including psoriatic arthritis (PsA), may potentially interfere with normal immune system function. Immune system function can be assessed by evaluating response to vaccination. We assessed the ability of patients with PsA treated with etanercept to produce antibodies in response to pneumococcal antigen challenge. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of rheumatology Pubmed

Abstract

Therapeutics used to treat inflammatory diseases, including psoriatic arthritis (PsA), may potentially interfere with normal immune system function. Immune system function can be assessed by evaluating response to vaccination. We assessed the ability of patients with PsA treated with etanercept to produce antibodies in response to pneumococcal antigen challenge.
