How Taltz works for psoriatic arthritis
Psoriatic arthritis can develop slowly with mild symptoms, or it can develop quickly and be severe. Early recognition, diagnosis and treatment of psoriatic arthritis can help stop or limit progressive joint damage that occurs in later stages of the disease.
IL-17A is one protein in your body that plays a role in inflammation and mediates bone and cartilage damage. Taltz works to help block IL-17A within your body.*
Is Taltz right for you?
Taltz is a biologic (injection) prescription medication used to treat adults with active psoriatic arthritis.
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.
