Biological drugs, such as infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, ustekinumab, golimumab and certolizumab are third-line therapy for psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), but they may be used at earlier stage in severe forms. This study investigated the pattern of use and costs of biological drugs for PsO/PsA in a large population from Southern Italy during the years 2010-2014.

Abstract

Biological drugs, such as infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, ustekinumab, golimumab and certolizumab are third-line therapy for psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), but they may be used at earlier stage in severe forms. This study investigated the pattern of use and costs of biological drugs for PsO/PsA in a large population from Southern Italy during the years 2010-2014.
