Skin Cancer Risk Found to be Increased After Psoriasis Therapies

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 5, 2017 / / -- Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin condition that affects approximately 3.2% of United States adults. Many patients have moderate-to-severe body surface area involvement requiring systemic treatment with phototherapy, immunosuppressants, and biologic agents.

A new study, published today in SKIN: The Journal of Cutaneous Medicine(TM) , details the risk of developing skin cancer associated with some of these therapies. In this report, Emily Dando, B.A., and Rina Anvekar, M.D., compile the existing data on the potential carcinogenic actions of each of these therapies into a single source.

These researchers found that while psoriasis patients have a slightly increased risk of developing skin cancer to begin with, many systemic psoriasis therapies—including psoralen and ultraviolet A (PUVA), cyclosporine, methotrexate, and TNF-α inhibitors—appear to increase this risk. Other agents, known as retinoids, actually seem to decrease the risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer in this patient population. Newer agents, IL-12/23 and IL-17 inhibitors, do not appear to increase the risk of skin cancer development substantially, but further research into their safety profiles is still underway.
