MARKET OUTLOOK

Despite similarities between adult psoriasis and pediatric psoriasis, pediatric psoriasis presents a challenge for patients seeking effective long-term therapy. Thetreatments available forpediatric psoriasis are limited. Topical corticosteroids are associated with more-frequent, severe adverse events in children, and only two biologics, Amgen’s Enbrel and Janssen's Stelara, are approved for pediatric and adolescent psoriasis, respectively. Topical corticosteroids continue to dominate treatment; biologics, although used in later lines of therapy, are increasingly being used, reflecting physicians’ growing acceptance of this drug class. Use of conventional systemics appears to be on the decline, underscoring theneed for treatments with more-acceptable safety profiles.
