CLEARER SKIN

UP TO 60% of patients

of patients in a clinical trial saw at least a 20% improvement in PsA symptoms at 16 weeks.*

*Approximately 60% of patients taking COSENTYX saw this level of improvement.

A similar percentage of patients saw improvement at 2 years.

In this study, patients and doctors were told which medication was being used after 6 months. When patients and doctors know the study drug being used, it may affect the results.

COSENTYX can help you take on your daily activities.

At 16 weeks, people in clinical trials completed a questionnaire that asked how difficult it was to complete daily activities.

On average at 16 weeks, people taking COSENTYX showed overall improvement in their ability to perform activities. The questions covered categories such as:

  • Getting in and out of bed
  • Getting dressed on their own
  • Walking outdoors on flat ground
  • Using hands to eat
  • Reaching to get objects from above or below
  • Gripping objects
  • Taking care of personal hygiene

In a clinical trial, more than half of people with inflamed fingers and toes no longer had signs of swelling after 6 months of taking COSENTYX.
