Y Chan 陳湧 and KH Yeung 楊國鴻

Abstract

Biologic therapy has emerged for more than a decade, providing a new alternative in treating moderate to severe psoriasis. There has been much research done and published for this relatively recent therapeutic option. An update on the use of biologics may help clarify some practical challenges in deciding the appropriate treatment for individual patients. This article aims to review the treatment decisions that need to be considered in prescribing biologics and their use in different patient groups with the latest evidence in this area.
