HUMIRA: a whole different way to treat hidradenitis suppurativa (HS).
While many medicines have played a role in the treatment of HS, HUMIRA is the first and only FDA-approved moderate to severe HS treatment for people 12 years and older.
What you need to know:
While the exact cause is unknown, science has shown that HS is a chronic (long-lasting) immune disease.
- With HS, your body produces too much of a protein called TNF-alpha
- This, along with other proteins, leads to increased inflammation
- That inflammation leads to abscesses and/or nodules that may appear underneath or on the surface of your skin
So, it’s active inside your body, but visible on the outside. Because HS may worsen or progress over time, working with a dermatologist to find the right treatment is key.
Significant results in just 3 months.
HUMIRA was studied in over 600 adult patients like you with hidradenitis suppurativa—the largest clinical trial completed for HS to date.
A 50% reduction in HS inflammatory nodules and abscesses? It’s possible.
HUMIRA is the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists.*
HUMIRA has more than 19 years of clinical trial experience, beginning with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis in 1997, with > 100 global clinical studies in safety and efficacy measurement. Worldwide, more than 1 million patients are currently being treated with HUMIRA.†
