Multiple treatment options—topical therapies, oral drugs, phototherapy, and biologics—are available to treat psoriasis. In particular, the approval of biologics other than TNF-α inhibitors (Almirall’s Ilumetri, Biotech’s Stelara, Eli Lilly’s Taltz, Jansenn’s Tremfya, Leo Pharma’s Kyntheum, Novartis’s Cosentyx) in recent years has helped advance psoriasis treatment and further expand physicians’ treatment armamentarium, especially for moderate to severe disease.

Current Treatment: Physician Insights probes current and future use of topical agents, phototherapy, and systemic therapies in mild, moderate, and severe patients in EU5. It extensively probes use of approved biologics and includes patient share, line of therapy, drivers of treatment selection, and barriers to broader usage.It also looks into how psoriasis is being treated in the EU5 today, as well as the factors behind those treatment decisions.
