Authors: Esposito M, Carubbi F, Giunta A, Alunno A, Giacomelli R, Fargnoli MC Abstract Introduction: Certolizumab pegol (CZP) is a Fc-free PEGylated TNF-α inhibitor approved for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and plaque psoriasis in many countries. It demonstrated favorable results in PsA in terms of improvement in peripheral arthritis, dactylitis and enthesitis in a phase III trial (RAPID-PSA) and in real-life experiences. Recently, 3 phase III randomized clinical trials (CIMPASI-1, CIMPASI-2, CIMPACT) showed significant, clinically meaningful, and sustained improvements in signs and symptoms of ...

This article reviews data presented in clinical trials to evaluate and compare various characteristics of biologics that are currently approved for the treatment of psoriasis. Attributes of biological agents that are examined in this article include efficacy, long-term maintenance, overall safety, median time to onset of efficacy, adjustment for body weight, frequency of injections, indication for psoriatic arthritis, and safety in pregnancy. Here, we evaluate what the ideal choice of biological therapy may be for psoriasis patients with specific needs.
