Abstract

The objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of resistance training in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). The study is a randomized controlled trial with 41 patients aged between 18 and 65 years with diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis (PsA). The patients were randomized into the following: intervention group (IG) and control group (CG). The IG underwent resistance exercise twice a week, for 12 weeks. The CG remained with the conventional drug therapy. The outcome measurements were the following: BASFI and HAQ-S for functional capacity, one maximum repetition test (1RM) for muscle strength, SF-36 questionnaire for general quality of life, and BASDAI and DAS-28 for disease activity. The evaluations were done by a blinded evaluator at baseline (T0) after 6 (T6) and 12 weeks (T12). At baseline, the groups were homogeneous regarding clinical and demographic characteristics. The IG significantly improved functional capacity measured by HAQ-S and disease activity measured by BASDAI, compared to CG, at week 12. Regarding quality of life, the IG improved the domains "pain" and "general health status" compared to CG (p < 0.05). There was improvement in muscular strength in almost all exercises in IG, except in the exercise for biceps. However, there were statistical differences between groups only on exercise "leg extension" in IG compared to CG. Resistance training is effective in improving functional capacity, disease activity, and quality of life of patients with psoriatic arthritis. The clinical improvements were not coupled to significant changes in muscular strength.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 September 2019.
All research outputs
#1,522,291
of 14,553,216 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Rheumatology
#158
of 1,937 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#59,352
of 403,096 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Rheumatology
#5
of 48 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,553,216 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,937 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.3. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 403,096 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 48 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
