of a healthy skin cell is about one month, but in people with psoriasis this process may take just a few days. This rapid overproduction leads to the build-up of skin cells because they do not have time to fall off. In most cases psoriasis can be diagnosed during the skin examination by dermatologist. In some cases, psoriasis can look like eczema and may require additional diagnostic tests, including biopsy, blood tests and X-rays.Treating options vary depending on the level of pain and swelling. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (ibuprofen, Motrin or Advil) or naproxen (Aleve) are used as initial treatment. In more severe cases disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) may be prescribed. DMARDs include sulfasalazine, methotrexate, cyclosporine and leflunomide. Other options are biologic medications, including HUMIRA® (adalimumab), Enbrel® (etanercept), SIMPONI® (golimumab), CIMZIA® (certolizumab), STELARA® (ustekinumab) and REMICADE® (infliximab) that are indicated for the both arthritis and skin psoriasis treatment.The most recent developments include Cosentyx® (secukinumab), a biologic injection manufactured by Novartis for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis and launched in 2015. Cosentyx® is currently approved in more than 75 countries for the treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. The product is available in the European Union countries, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, the United States and Canada.AbstractPsoriasis (PsO) is a chronic autoimmune disease that results from the overproduction of skin cells that causes redness and inflammation.
