COSENTYX is proven to help reduce symptoms of psoriatic arthritis (PsA).


COSENTYX can start working in as little as 3 weeks for psoriatic arthritis symptoms.

Up to 60% of patients in a clinical trial saw at least a 20% improvement in psoriatic arthritis symptoms at 16 weeks versus 18% of patients taking placebo.



For patients who continued on COSENTYX for 5 years, a similar percentage saw an improvement in psoriatic arthritis symptoms.

In this study, the medication being used was revealed to doctors and patients after 1 year, which may affect the results.


COSENTYX® is the first§ and #1 prescribed biologic treatment of its kind.
