Abstract

Background: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is the most prevalent comorbidity in psoriasis and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and mortality. Assessment of impacts of biologic therapies on cardiometabolic risk factors are relatively limited. This study evaluated the effect of tildrakizumab on cardiometabolic risk factors in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis and stratified by MetS status. Methods: In this post hoc analysis of reSURFACE 1/2, tildrakizumab 100 and 200 mg were continuously administered to patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis at weeks 0 and 4, and every 12 weeks thereafter. Mean and mean percent changes from baseline were assessed for fasting serum glucose, low/high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglyceride levels, body weight, and blood pressure at week 64/52 for reSURFACE 1 and 2, respectively, in patients with and without MetS. Results: A total of 369 patients in reSURFACE 1 and 2, received continuous tildrakizumab 100 mg and 330 received tildrakizumab 200 mg; 21.4% and 20.3% in reSURFACE 1 and 2, respectively, had MetS. At week 64/52, mean changes in cardiometabolic risk factors from baseline did not significantly differ regardless of Penalties MetS status. Numerically Apply larger mean decreases in fasting glucose, triglycerides, and systolic blood pressure following tildrakizumab 100 mg and in systolic and diastolic blood pressure following tildrakizumab 200 mg were observed in patients with MetS relative to those without MetS. Conclusions: Changes in cardiometabolic disease risk factors following tildrakizumab treatment were limited. Risk factors were not increased in patients with MetS vs without MetS.
