Joseph F. Merola, MD, from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and colleagues examined the efficacy of tofacitinib for nail psoriasis treatment over 52 weeks in 2 identical phase 3 studies. Patients were randomized to receive tofacitinib 5 mg (487 patients), tofacitinib 10 mg (476 patients), or placebo (233 patients) twice daily. Placebo-treated patients were re-randomized at week 16.

The researchers found that significantly more patients receiving tofacitinib 5 mg and tofacitinib 10 mg vs placebo achieved a ≥50% reduction in the Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (NAPSI) score from baseline (NAPSI50) (32.8% and 44.2%, respectively, vs 12.0%), NAPSI75 (16.9% and 28.1%, respectively, vs 6.8%), and NAPSI100 (10.3% and 18.2%, respectively, vs 5.1%) at week 16. The improvements were maintained to week 52.

As such there is no cure for psoriasis, but in some places they apply tar on the infected place and bind it with cloth. It's supposed to suppress the symptoms. Not hot coal tar.
