Biologics

Biologic agents for psoriasis treatment

The newest therapeutic class of  drugs for psoriasis are the biologic agents. Biologic agents are administered by injection, and treat psoriasis by reducing inflammation in the skin and elsewhere in the body.  These medicines are intended to treat patients with moderate to severe psoriasis, patients with psoriatic arthritis, or patients who have failed to respond to other forms of treatment.

Selection of a specific agent is based on the patient’s medical history, the presence or absence of psoriatic arthritis, and other factors.

Biologic agents which we prescribe include:

  • Cosentyx
  • Taltz
  • Humira
  • Enbrel
  • Stelara
  • Tremfya

More resources for patients are available at the National Psoriasis Foundation.  The site has outstanding resources for patients and their caregivers regarding psoriasis and its treatment.
