For many years, the psoriasis treatment landscape was dominated by tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors. But with the FDA’s approval of three interleukin-17 (IL-17) inhibitors — as well as other drugs with different mechanisms of action — for the condition, those therapies are becoming more common among treatment regimens. An AllianceRx Walgreens Prime study shows that not only are people switching to IL-17s from another biologic, but many are starting on them as their initial biologic. Patients who switched had better adherence to treatment, and almost half reported that their symptoms were better on an IL-17 inhibitor.
