Key psoriasis research and clinical data

Psoriasis-related publications have grown substantially since 1960, and recent discoveries have paved the way for future research. Although research topics have expanded and diversified, the goal of research has remained to better understand psoriasis and its treatment to benefit people living with the disease1.

In this section, we provide a concise overview of the key results from the most significant clinical trials for each systemic and biologic treatment currently available.

Real-world evidence for biologics in psoriasis

Real-world evidence on psoriasis treatments complement data from clinical trials, providing evidence on safety and effectiveness of approved psoriasis treatments in broader populations outside those permitted by the inclusion/exclusion criteria of clinical trials81.
