Selective TYK2 Inhibition in the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Chronic Plaque Psoriasis

Moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis may be difficult to control using current therapies, which has led to development of a novel class of therapy, selective tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) inhibitors, to address this unmet need.

IL-23s: Psoriasis therapy overview

Biologics are protein-based medications that target specific parts of the immune system. IL-23 inhibitor specifically targets a type of cytokine called IL-23 and blocks cellular activity, which results in reduced inflammation that causes psoriasis.

Selecting from IL-23s

Tildrakizumab (Ilumya) is a brand-name biologic medication that’s used to treat moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. This drug is an interleukin (IL-23) inhibitor that’s very effective and works long-term to control the symptoms of psoriasis.

Tildrakizumab candidates

Unlike many other psoriasis treatments, tildrakizumab can be used in higher-risk populations, such as in the elderly or those with psoriasis in addition to other health conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or psoriatic arthritis.

Tildrakizumab effectiveness related to trial results

After 12 weeks of treatment with tildrakizumab (Ilumya), over 50 percent of patients can be cleared of their psoriasis. This biologic drug was approved in Canada in October 2021.

Tildrakizumab effectiveness

People with psoriasis are frequently frustrated over treatments that are ineffective for them, such as tumor necrosis factor biologics, phototherapy, or systemic drugs (such as methotrexate). IL-23 inhibitors, like tildrakizumab, can be an important and effective therapeutic option when patients do not respond to other treatments.

Tildrakizumab long-term effectiveness

Research has shown high levels of effectiveness are maintained for 5 years and beyond with tildrakizumab (Ilumya), an interleukin-23 (IL-23) inhibitor.

Managing patients on Tildrakizumab

Tildrakizumab (Ilumya), an interleukin-23 (IL-23) inhibitor offers a convenient dosing schedule. Treatment is administered by subcutaneous injection at start of treatment, after 4 weeks, followed by every 12 weeks thereafter.

General thoughts on Tildrakizumab

With the availability of tildrakizumab (Ilumya), an interleukin-23 (IL-23) inhibitor, dermatologists are very optimistic about the continued success of this biologic drug used to treat psoriasis patients.

Tildrakizumab: the Patient Journey

Unlike many other psoriasis treatments, tildrakizumab can be used in higher-risk populations, such as in the elderly or those with psoriasis in addition to other health conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or psoriatic arthritis.

Risankizumab, an IL-23p19 Inhibitor for Psoriasis: A Review of the Current Literature

The addition of biologics that target IL-23p19 (Risankizumab) to our therapeutic armamentarium has succeeded in improving outcomes in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

Tildrakizumab for Moderate-to-Severe Plaque Psoriasis

Tildrakizumab is a promising therapeutic option for patients with moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. The specificity of the drug in targeting the p19 subunit of IL-23 allows for the high efficacy and safety of long-term treatment as demonstrated in clinical trials.

Secukinumab in the Treatment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis: A Review of the Literature

Secukinumab demonstrates rapid and robust clinical improvement accompanied by a favorable short- term safety profile. The results of the phase III trials continue to reinforce the theory that the IL-17 pathway is an essential target in psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis treatment.

A Review of Guselkumab, an IL-23 Inhibitor, for Moderate-to-Severe Plaque Psoriasis

Psoriasis is thought to arise from a combination of pathogenic factors including genetic susceptibility and environmental exacerbation. This article reviews the current status of guselkumab as a therapy for moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

A Review of Ixekizumab, an Anti-Interleukin-17A Monoclonal Antibody, for Moderate-to-Severe Plaque Psoriasis

Recent advances in our understanding of the innate and adaptive immune systems have led to the identification of interleukin (IL)-17 as a key pro-inflammatory mediator in psoriasis. We review phase 1-3 clinical trials of ixekizumab, for treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

Interleukin-23 in the Pathogenesis and Treatment of Psoriasis

In the past three decades, major advances have been made in understanding the pathogenesis of psoriasis. This review focuses on the role of IL-23 in psoriasis pathogenesis and the current therapies targeting IL-23 that are being studied in clinical trials.

Interleukin-17 (IL-17) Inhibitors in the Treatment of Plaque Psoriasis: A Review

Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is believed to be a potent driver of plaque psoriasis. This article reviews efficacy and safety results from Phase 2 and 3 trials with monoclonal antibodies targeting IL-17RA (brodalumab), and IL-17A (ixekizumab and secukinumab) for the treatment of plaque psoriasis.

IL-12/IL-23 Inhibitors: The Advantages and Disadvantages of this Novel Approach for the Treatment of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease that is mediated, in part by the body’s T-cell inflammatory response mechanisms. Current data regarding the efficacy of these agents show they may have the potential to become the new clinical gold standard for biologic therapy to treat psoriasis.
