Prologue: 2018 Annual Meeting of the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA).
The 2018 Annual Meeting of the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) was held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and was attended by rheumatologists, dermatologists, and representatives of biopharmaceutical companies and patients. As in previous years, GRAPPA members held a symposium for trainees to discuss their research in psoriatic disease with experts in the field. Other subjects featured during the annual meeting included GRAPPA-Collaborative Research Network's second annual meeting; the association between psoriatic disease and cardiovascular events; updates from working groups in International Dermatology Outcome Measures (IDEOM) and Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (OMERACT); a 2016 study that benchmarked care in psoriatic arthritis (PsA); the genetic contribution to PsA and strong need for genome-wide association studies on patients with PsA; the GRAPPA Ultrasound Working Group's goal to optimize the evaluation of enthesitis in patients with PsA using ultrasound through the development and validation of new instruments; and an update on GRAPPA's research and educational projects. In this prologue, we introduce the papers that summarize the meeting.
