COSENTYX is the first FDA-approved biologic treatment of its kind
What is a biologic?
A biologic is a protein-based medication that is made from living sources and is taken by injection or infusion.
COSENTYX is designed to target and block IL-17A, which is believed to play a role in inflammation that causes psoriasis plaques and joint pain in people with psoriatic arthritis
Why is IL-17A important?
With psoriasis, an overactive immune system overproduces certain proteins, one of which is IL-17A, causing inflammation and painful, itchy plaques to appear on the skin. In some people, this inflammation can also cause pain in the joints. COSENTYX is the first and most prescribed† FDA-approved IL-17A blocker.
†Across all indications.
Brenelle talks to an expert to uncover how COSENTYX works
Results fast. Clear skin that can last.
In clinical trials, the majority of people taking COSENTYX 300 mg were clear or almost clear at 12 weeks. Approximately 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance. Approximately 6 out of 10 people saw 90% skin clearance. Many who saw results at 1 year maintained them at 5 years.‡
‡After 3 years, patients and doctors were told which medication was being used. Knowing the study drug being used may affect the results.
“I’m just grateful now that I actually am in the clear. I started summer 2015, so it’s 3 years for me, and I am so grateful to feel better, you know?”
Feel relief fast
Among people who kept a symptom diary (39% of people), improvement in psoriasis symptoms like pain, itching, and scaling was seen in those taking COSENTYX after just 12 weeks.§
