Some of the drugs sound pretty promising, especially the one for controlling Enthesis.
Very useful information, quick read as well!
Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for this, Jon. The point is, that every year there are more and more “tools” available to us. I used to despair about what I was going to do after I’d burned through Enbrel and Humira and Remicade, but treatment options are now coming on the horizon faster than I could possibly fail them. We are fortunate to be coping with this disease now, and not a generation ago.
I may be moving on from Remicade, as it only is effective for 4 weeks, and I get the infusions every 6 weeks. I have gone through Enbrel, Stelara, and Otezla, at least now I have more options. The new one that is specialized for enthesis might be just the ticket for me, we shall see…
Yes, I’d echo Seenie - thanks Jon. It’s always a relief to know there are more in the works! I’ve got to take both PsA and IBD into account, so that narrows the choices, and it is a relief to know there are more in the pipeline!
Here is a study about possible target medications for PsA with enthesis. However, Stelara did not help much, so unless they come up with other options, I may be out of luck.
