A Newly Published Network Meta-Analysis (NMA) Found TREMFYA ® (guselkumab) Ranked Highest for Overall Level of Skin Clearance and Provided Positive Joint Efficacy Among Active Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) Therapies
Conclusions (i.e., comparable) are based on an overlap of pairwise 95 percent credible intervals.1c. PASI 90 is defined as at least 90 percent improvement from baseline in the PASI score. The PASI score grades the amount of surface area on each body region that is covered by PsO plaques and the severity of plaques for their redness, thickness, and scaliness.13 PASI 90 was not a controlled endpoint in DISCOVER-1 or -2.8,9d. TREMFYA q4w dosing is not currently FDA-approved.2e. The PsA-modified vdH-S score combines erosion and joint space narrowing scores derived from radiographs of joints in body regions impacted by PsA.14 T...
