Long lasting response to anti-tumor necrosis factor α agents in psoriasis: A real life experience.

Dermatologic Therapy 2022 December
Psoriasis is a chronic, immune-mediated inflammatory disease for which no definitive cure exists and patients difficult to treat with moderate to severe psoriasis often require life-long therapy. In general, the use of any biologic agent as monotherapy allows a long-term efficacy, however survival response may progressively decrease over time. We report real-world long lasting response data in psoriatic patients on treatment with anti-TNFα evaluating those on the same anti-TNFα agent (infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab) from January 2011 and December 2013 to December 31, 2021 as monotherapy. On 210 treated patients, 69 were found to maintain the same anti-TNFα agent. The median survival rate for etanercept, infliximab and adalimumab was 10, 9.6, and 9.5 years respectively and the efficacy rate was similar (mean PASI96). Our results demonstrate that anti-TNFα agents are a long-term effective and safe therapeutic option for a satisfying proportion (33%) of patients with moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis. Further long-term real life studies are needed to better understand which are the causes of drug failure or persistent response and why these may occur at different time intervals in patients on the same drug.
