Striving for Comprehensive Treatment in Psoriatic Disease

An informative and engaging presentation on the complexities of psoriasis (PsO) as a systemic, immune-mediated condition. We will discuss what psoriasis means to patients, including the impact of living with PsO and the need for new treatment goals across the spectrum of clinical manifestations. We will describe how dermatologists can improve early diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis and support the right treatment for their patients. Finally, we will answer key clinical questions on the role of Il-17A in the pathophysiology of psoriasis and how targeting IL17-A can achieve comprehensive treatment for patients.
