Continuum of Biologic Treatment for Psoriasis

The continuum of biologic treatment for psoriasis

Risankizumab, a new IL23p19 inhibitor

In just 60 minutes, bring yourself up to speed on new advances in biologic therapy for psoriasis.

You will learn the fundamentals about new treatments that have recently come to market: why they work, how they are given, and where they fit in the overall treatment landscape.

You will also be equipped with answers to patients’ frequently asked questions, from “What results can I expect?” to “What should I know if I’m switching from another biologic?” to “What side effects are common?”.

Stay engaged in the material thanks to an innovative video format and interactive questions throughout.
