Biologic treatment for psoriasis shows long-term effectiveness

Biologic treatment results in stable long-term effectiveness in patients with psoriasis, according to data published in the British Journal of Dermatology.

Professor Marcus Schmitt-Egenolf, from the Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine at Umea University in Umea, Sweden, and colleagues conducted an observational study to analyze long-term and real-world outcome data in patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis after starting biologic treatment.

The researchers used data from the Swedish national register for systemic psoriasis treatment, PsoReg, which includes 10 years of real-world data on the effectiveness of biologic treatment.

The study included 583 biologic-naïve patients with at least 1 registration of outcome before switching to biologic treatment and at least 1 follow-up visit. The investigators analyzed Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI), Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI), and EuroQol-5D (EQ-5D) values at 3 to 5 months, 6 to 11 months, and at least once between 1 year and 9 years after switching to biologic treatment.

Anyone know of a successful psoriasis treatment?

My boyfriend has a small patch of what looks like psoriasis by his ear. We got some of this coal tar gel called Psoriasin but it doesn't seem to be helping. Anyone with this have any helpful tips or treatments?


If it is in fact >psoriasis<, you probably need steroid cream. Should get it checked out, though, because it might be something else (like >skin cancer<). My friend used dermasis for psoriasis . It is very good so if you need to test it,

Hi, he can try one of the natural treatments available on the Internet - some of them do actually work. For my psor. I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just a couple of weeks to clear the spots and they then stay clear for months
