Did you know an overactive immune system is like an overactive tennis ball machine? There are multiple molecules in the body that may play a role in causing inflammation. The IL-17A molecule is just one of them.
How you manage your psoriatic arthritis (PsA) pain can have a big impact on how you live your daily life. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent joint damage, but managing the multiple symptoms of PsA can help you put your best foot forward.
What makes COSENTYX different?
There are multiple molecules in the body that may play a role in causing inflammation. The IL-17A molecule is just one of them. COSENTYX is a different kind of targeted biologic. It’s the first and most prescribed treatment of its kind† and works within your body to target IL-17A.
†Across all indications.
What is a biologic?
A biologic is a protein-based medication that is made from living sources, and is taken by injection or infusion.
If left untreated, psoriatic arthritis can cause permanent joint damage, also known as radiographic progression
This can cause your joints, such as your fingers or toes, to become permanently damaged, and can disrupt your ability to perform daily activities. COSENTYX is proven to help stop further joint damage.
In the largest clinical trial ever conducted for psoriatic arthritis, COSENTYX was proven to help stop further joint damage‡
77% of patients taking COSENTYX had no increase in joint damage at 6 months§
‡Based on data from X-rays of the hands and feet at 6 months.
§For patients taking the 300-mg dose of COSENTYX. 71% of patients had no increase in joint damage at 6 months in the 150-mg group, versus 68% of patients taking placebo.

“I had a lot of swollen joints and psoriasis flakes all over. It was hard to get up in the morning and get ready. With COSENTYX, I started looking and feeling better in a short time. And since then, I’m doing the things I want to do with much less pain.”
GET RESULTS FAST THAT CAN LAST
COSENTYX can start working in as little as 3 weeks.
Up to 60% of patients in a clinical trial saw at least a 20% improvement in PsA symptoms at 16 weeks versus 18% of patients taking placebo.
Proven results can last.
For patients who continued on COSENTYX for 5 years, a similar percentage saw an improvement in PsA symptoms. At 1 year, patients and doctors knew they were getting COSENTYX, which may affect results.
Complete reduction of swelling
In a clinical trial, more than half of people with completely swollen fingers and toes (dactylitis) no longer had signs of swelling after 6 months of taking COSENTYX versus 15% for placebo.
