Mind the gap - the benefits of modern biologic treatment

Professor Piaserico gives a detailed explanation of the role of the different cytokines in the pathogenesis of psoriasis and why targeting IL-23 might be more favourable than targeting IL-17. He also discusses the most important drug characteristics for patients with psoriasis and the need to consider what happens when stopping treatment.


En route to long-term control?

Professor Thaçi gives a detailed history of the progress in scientific understanding that has led to the current diverse range of targeted therapies for psoriasis. He presents the data that shows that IL-23 inhibition is more appropriate for long-term disease control and asks whether remission is possible?


Targeting safety in treatment decisions

Professor Puig explores the safety profile of treatments targeting TNFα, IL-12/23, IL-23 and IL-17. Find out from clinical trial and registry data the extent of the risks associated with these targets and how these risks should inform your treatment decisions.
