Abstract

Psoriasis is a complex immune disorder associated with substantial metabolic and psychological comorbidities, posing challenges to treatment. Interleukin (IL)-23 inhibitors, the newest class of biologics for the treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis, are more selective mechanistically than previous biologic classes and may have utility in management of patients with comorbidities, particularly those with metabolic syndrome (MetS). Moreover, recent long-term data suggest that IL-23 inhibitors offer unique advantages in both safety and efficacy. As the relationship between psoriasis and MetS continues to be elucidated, the availability of agents that are safe and effective in patients with and without comorbidities represents an important step in the spectrum of treatment.
