What is Plaque Psoriasis?
Plaque psoriasis is caused by an overactive immune system. Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis, which can result in raised, red, silver, or flaky patches on your skin.
How does Taltz work for patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis?
Interleukin 17A (IL-17A) is one protein in your body that plays a role in inflammation and skin plaque growth. Taltz works to help block IL-17A within your body.*
Is Taltz right for you?
Taltz is a biologic (injection) prescription medicine used to treat adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who may benefit from taking injections or pills (systemic therapy) or phototherapy (treatment using ultraviolet or UV light).
What is a biologic?
A biologic is a protein-based drug produced from living cells. Biologics are different from traditional systemic drugs that impact the entire immune system. Biologics, instead, target specific parts of the immune system.
FOR PATIENTS WITH MODERATE TO SEVERE PLAQUE PSORIASIS
Taltz is the first and only treatment of its kind* that offers a chance at 100% clear skin
With Taltz, up to 90% of people saw a significant improvement of their psoriasis plaques. Some* achieved completely clear skin.
Taltz works quickly to provide most patients significantly clearer skin by 12 weeks.
Most people with psoriasis who were significantly clearer at 12 weeks still saw those results more than a year later.†
