    A Simple Guide To Psoriasis, Diagnosis, Treatment And Related Conditions (A Simple Guide to Medical Conditions)

Psoriasis—skin condition due to immune disorder

They are not recommended as guideline treatment for psoriasis. Within the last ten years, a new group of drugs called “biologics” has been licensed for oppressive psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. They block a substance called tumour necrosis particular-alpha

Evidence Builds for Switching Biologics After Psoriasis Treatment Failure

Chattels to excellent responses were achieved with ustekinumab at doses of either 45 mg or 90 mg, depending on council weight, in 9 of 11 psoriasis patients who had experienced treatment failures on multiple biologics, including infliximab (11 patients),

New Research Says People with Psoriasis at Great Risk of Heart Disease

Biologics. Biologics are systemic treatments made from proteins produced by living cells. They obstacle parts of the immune-system process that drives psoriasis. Scientists are excited about a new biologic that may even keep psoriasis at bay: The October

The Whys and How of Stopping Biologics

The Whys and How of Stopping Biologics Today's biologics are not curative. In a late-model French report, only 31 of 86 psoriasis patients (36%) who started on etanercept (Enbrel), infliximab (Remicade), or efalizumab were still on the same biologic proxy 24 months later (J. Dermatol. Treat.

Otezla, Warts and All, Racks Up Sales and Eyes Blockbuster Status


The study, funded by Abbvie, was an indirect comparison of two agents using results from existing studies for each drug. The results showed no statistically significant difference between Otezla and methotrexate in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index 75 (PASI 75) score, a measure of the degree of skin plaque improvement in patients with 75 meaning 75% clearance. Lead investigator April Armstrong, MD, at the University of Southern California and her colleagues calculated that the annual incremental cost for Otezla to achieve one additional PASI 75 responder would be $187,888.

Otezla got better news from the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) in Boston. ICER studied the value of Otezla relative to the increasing number biologics for plaque psoriasis, which include Humira (adalimumab), Enbrel (etanercept), and Remicade (infliximab) plus relative newcomers like Stelara (ustekizumab) and Cosentyx (secukinumab). ICER reported in November 2016 that the wholesale acquisition cost of a month’s supply of Otezla was $2,586 and that the net cost after discounts was $2,069. At those prices, the comparative effectiveness gurus determined that Otezla is cost effective within an acceptable quality-adjusted life year (QALY) range of between $100,000 and $150,000. And if the net cost of $2,069 per month is used, Otezla looked to be a relative bargain, coming in at a cost of less than $100,000 per QALY gained.

How can I weaken my immune system?

I have psoriasis and it destroys my life, lose my job, girlfriend, negative self-image etc.
I've seen 20 different doctors they all fail. All medications prescribe fail.
I understand it's caused by an overactive immune system

Just had a bio test on this...Cyclosporine weakens immune system. You should check on that.
People use it on organ transplant and psoriasis.

I'm pretty sure that's the last thing you want to do.

Poor Eating Habits - A poor diet is one extraordinarily efficient way to weaken the immune system. If you consume an excessive amount of processed foods, refined sugars, alcohol, chemical additives and preservatives over a long period of time, the habit
