JAK/TYK2 Inhibition: New Frontiers in the Treatment of Psoriasis – Virtual CME Event

By October 5, 2021September 21st, 2023Uncategorized

Psoriasis is a common autoimmune disorder with associated comorbidities that are more than skin deep. Patients with psoriasis are at increased risk for cardiovascular and metabolic disease, malignancies, and anxiety/depression. These patients suffer from a diminished quality of life; conversely, treatment of the disease can improve quality of life and reduce morbidity. Unfortunately, data indicate that patients with psoriasis do not receive optimal treatment, and that clinicians are not sufficiently equipped to select appropriate therapy from among the many new treatment options. The proposed educational initiative will provide clinicians with a solid foundation for understanding the pathophysiology of psoriasis along with other autoimmune diseases, how this pathophysiology informs treatment options, and the most recent clinical trial data for current and emerging agents and management recommendations available to guide therapy selection.
