Experimental Treatment for Psoriasis Shows Promise

Experimental Treatment for Psoriasis Shows Promise


A promising new drug to help psoriasis patients
control their itchy, frustrating outbreaks may soon be on the way. I’m Gabe Garza with
your latest health news. Two phase three clinical trials have found that an experimental treatment
for psoriasis called brodalumab may be more effective than the commonly-used psoriasis
treatment ustekinumab. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that changes the life cycle
of skin cells, causing them to build up rapidly on the skin’s surface. The primary goal of
psoriasis treatment is to stop skin cells from growing too quickly. While there is no
cure, treatments may offer significant relief for patients with this condition. During both
studies, patients taking brodalumab compared to ustekinumab showed more of a significant
reduction in psoriasis symptoms. Always speak to your doctor about the latest treatment
for your condition.
