Q&A with Dr. Bagel: Today’s Psoriasis Treatments

Windsor Dermatology is the proud home of the Psoriasis Treatment Center of Central New Jersey, as well as the state’s first complete facility for advanced psoriasis clinical research. Our goal is to help those suffering from psoriasis with the latest approved treatments in hopes of changing their lives for the better. There is no cure for psoriasis at the moment, but today’s treatments have come a long way in their effectiveness. Who knows where will be ten years from now.

We sat down with Dr. Bagel, Windsor Dermatology’s specialist in psoriasis, to find out the details on some of the newest treatments and to see what the future has in store.

1. What is the most recent psoriasis treatment Windsor Dermatology has begun using?

The most recent form of psoriasis treatment offered at Windsor is Tremfya. It is one of the most effective drugs currently approved by the FDA.

2. Are there any risks in using this method of treatment? How effective is it?

A subcutaneous injection every 8 weeks results in totally clean skin for over 50% of the people who undergo the treatment. It is a safe procedure, but as with all biologic agents, there is a slight increased risk of infection.

3. What is the most common form of treatment performed by Windsor?

At Windsor Dermatology, we treat patients with the most appropriate therapy relating to their unique condition. The various methods we use are typically phototherapy, acetretin, enbrel, humira, stelara, talz, cosetyx, siliq, otezla and tremfya. A consultation will help us decide which method is best for you.

4. Are there any newer treatments approaching the market?

There are new IL- 17 inhibitors (like cosentyx, talz, siliq) and new p19 inhibitors like tremfya that are currently being tested in clinical trials. The hope is that they will show even better efficacy, require less administration of shots, and have an even higher level of safety.

5. Do you know of any current clinical trials going on for those who are interested?

Windsor is involved in all of the clinical trials mentioned in the answer above.
