Cosentyx is indicated for the treatment of: moderate to severe plaque psoriasis (PsO) in adults, adolescents and children from the age of 6 years who are candidates for systemic therapy; active psoriatic arthritis in adult patients, alone or in combination with MTX, when the response to previous DMARD therapy has been inadequate; active ankylosing spondylitis in adults who have responded inadequately to conventional therapy; active non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis with objective signs of inflammation as indicated by elevated CRP and/or MRI evidence in adults who have responded inadequately to NSAIDs.
In this webinar, consultant dermatologist Dr Christos Kasparis and NIHR Clinician Scientist Professor Laura Coates discuss the management of patients with PsO and PsA with multiple manifestations and offer perspectives on the importance of timely screening and treating patients early with the correct biologic. The experts also describe the Complete Cosentyx (secukinumab) Approach*, discussing clinical trial evidence from MAXIMISE for PsA, and nail and scalp data.
*The Complete Cosentyx Approach is defined as efficacy in both skin and persistent nail and scalp psoriasis, as well as psoriatic arthritis and improvements in quality of life.
