Scalp psoriasis: report of efficient treatment with secukinumab.

08:00 EDT 1st October 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Scalp psoriasis: report of efficient treatment with secukinumab."

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease affecting 2-3% of the population in the world. The scalp is the most common, and frequently the first site of disease involvement. Occasionally it may be the only localization of psoriasis. Treatment of scalp psoriasis is often unsatisfactory, due to limited available topical therapy and reduced efficacy of some systemic drugs. Biologic therapies are recommended for severe psoriasis, resistant to topical treatment, but evidence from randomized, controlled studies is lacking regarding effectiveness on scalp-localized lesions. Several clinical studies have shown the efficacy of secukinumab on plaque psoriasis, and some encouraging experience suggest the use in difficult sites such as the scalp; this article reports effective treatment with secukinumab of a series of patients with plaque and scalp psoriasis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A common genetically determined, chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by rounded erythematous, dry, scaling patches. The lesions have a predilection for nails, scalp, genitalia, extensor surfaces, and the lumbosacral region. Accelerated epidermopoiesis is considered to be the fundamental pathologic feature in psoriasis.

Severe irritant and vesicant of skin, eyes, and lungs. It may cause blindness and lethal lung edema and was formerly used as a war gas.
