Etanercept Reduces Psoriasis

According to a study in the June issue of Archives of Dermatology, Extended exposure to the psoriasis medication etanercept does not appear to cause more infections or adverse events.

Psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disorder , usually requires long-term therapy, according to background information in the article. 'Serum and affected tissue levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) are elevated in patients with psoriasis compared with levels in uninvolved skin of patients with psoriasis and in healthy individuals, suggesting that TNF plays an important role in the pathogenesis of the disease,' the authors write.

After a 12-week period during which 618 patients with moderate to severe psoriasis were randomly assigned to receive either placebo or 50 milligrams of etanercept twice weekly (the current recommended dosage for psoriasis) for 12 weeks, all 591 continuing patients (average age 45.7) received etanercept for up to 84 weeks.

During this open-label period, safety and efficacy evaluations were completed every 12 weeks. Psoriasis severity was measured using the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score, where zero means no disease and 72 is the most severe disease.

'Exposure-adjusted rates of adverse events, serious adverse events, infections and serious infections were similar for placebo and etanercept treatments,' the authors write. 'Patients responded within two weeks to etanercept, with statistically significant differences in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index and Dermatology Life Quality Index between the etanercept and placebo groups at week 12. At week 24, after 12 weeks of open-label etanercept trea
