Morbidity in patients with hidradenitis suppurativa
TLDR
This work has shown that quality‐of‐life measures may be a relevant surrogate measure of skin disease and may form a pertinent measure of disease severity in Hidradenitis suppurativa. Expand
Hidradenitis suppurativa ‐ characteristics and consequences
TLDR
The general characteristics of the disease and its impact on patients with an established diagnosis of hidradenitis suppurativa are described and those of an unselected general population sample are compared. Expand
Topical Treatment of Hidradenitis Suppurativa with Clindamycin
TLDR
The overall effect of clindamycin treatment based on patients' assessments, number of abscesses, inflammatory nodules and pustules was significantly better than placebo at each monthly evaluation (P < 0.01). Expand

  • Expert opinion on pharmacotherapy
  • 2004
TLDR
Preceiving HS as an inflammatory skin disease suggests the use of general immunosuppressive drugs in the treatment of this condition and this approach, using both traditional immunosupressants and monoclonal antibodies, appears to have some potential. Expand
The natural history of hidradenitis suppurativa
TLDR
The objective is to investigate aspects of the natural history of hidradenitis that are unknown in the wild and investigate its role in human disease. Expand

TLDR
Subjective factors, particularly soreness, appear to be a key factor in patients' assessment of the disease and should, therefore, be included as an outcome variable in future therapy studies. Expand
