NEW TREATMENT OPTION FOR PSORIASIS -
THE MOST COMMON
AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE IN THE U.S.
This World Psoriasis Day (Oct. 29th),
Learn How a New Treatment for Psoriasis
May Benefit the 7.5 Million Adults
in the U.S. Living with the Disease
DR. MARK JACKSON, M.D., Clinical Professor Medicine/Dermatology at University of Louisville
LAURA MCCRAW, a current OTEZLA® patient, diagnosed with psoriasis at 28 now 42.
Psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disorder, is the most common autoimmune disease in the U.S. affecting approximately 7.5 million adults in this country alone. In its most common form (plaque psoriasis), psoriasis appears as raised, red patches covered with a silvery white buildup of dead skin cells. According to recent data, many patients expressed that there is a need for better psoriasis treatments.
In observance of World Psoriasis Day, an annual observance specially dedicated to raising awareness of the disease, Dr. Mark Jackson will be available for interviews to tell your audience more about psoriasis and OTEZLA® (apremilast), a new option recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of patients with moderate and severe plaque psoriasis for whom phototherapy or systemic therapy is appropriate.
Joining Dr. Jackson is Laura McCraw, who was diagnosed with psoriasis when she was 28 years old. What began as a patch of irritated skin at the front of her scalp expanded to cover her arms, stomach and other parts of her body. Once she received an official diagnosis of psoriasis, Laura began to cycle through a varied regimen of topical steroid creams and prescription shampoos in an attempt to manage her symptoms. They would work well for a short time, but would quickly lose their effectiveness. After speaking with her doctor about available treatment options, she began using OTEZLA® and saw significant improvement in her symptoms.
