HIPPOCRATES Prospective Observational Study (HPOS): Recruitment Update

Join the HIPPOCRATES Prospective Observational Study (HPOS): Investigating Psoriasis Patients Across Europe

We're making significant progress in our recruitment efforts for the HPOS study, focusing on patients with psoriasis across Europe. Led by a research team from the University of Oxford and University College Dublin, our aim is to identify patients at risk of developing psoriatic arthritis.

Current Enrolment Update: We're excited to announce that recruitment has just begun in Portugal and Greece, while in the UK and Ireland, we've already successfully enrolled nearly 3000 patients.

Still Recruiting: While our recruitment efforts have been promising, we continue to seek more participants to ensure the reliability and depth of our findings.

Study Purpose: Up to one-third of patients with psoriasis will develop a related arthritis causing inflammation in the joints and tendons. Our goal is to identify which patients will develop arthritis with the long-term aim of trying to prevent the development of arthritis before it occurs.

Study Details: HPOS is part of our HIPPOCRATES research project, investigating psoriatic arthritis across Europe. The study is entirely online with no hospital visits and involves completing questionnaires on a website. You will be free to change your mind about your participation and your preferences throughout the study.

How to Participate: If you or someone you know is an adult living in Europe with psoriasis and may be interested in joining the study, please visit hpos.study for more information and to sign up. Thank you for considering participation in our study. Your involvement is invaluable in advancing our understanding of psoriasis and its related conditions.
