The research goal is to study the connection between activity of systemic inflammation, endothelium damage and arterial rigidity in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Expression of arterial damage (the level of circulation of endothe-liocytes (CEC)) and indices of arterial rigidity have been studied in 32 patients with PsA. Methods used in the investigation are oscillography, photopletismography and occlusion test. Control group consisted of 22 practically in good health state volunteers. Patients with PsA had endothelium dysfunction, damage of endothelium and higher arterial rigidity. These findings were related to PsA activity and observed in patients with serious joint damage
