You and your doctor may consider a number of therapies that play a role in treating HS, including one or more of the following.
With HS, your body produces too much of a protein called TNF-alpha. This leads to increased inflammation, which in turn leads to abscesses on the surface of your skin.
HUMIRA is a biologic medication that targets and blocks TNF-alpha to treat moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa. HUMIRA is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for HS.
HUMIRA is the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists.*
HUMIRA has more than 19 years of clinical trial experience, beginning with rheumatoid arthritis in 1997, with > 100 global clinical studies in safety and efficacy measurement. Worldwide, more than one million patients are currently being treated with HUMIRA.†

†As of June, 2016
In clinical trials, many adult HS patients who used HUMIRA experienced significant improvement in signs and symptoms—in just 3 months, HUMIRA was proven in many adult patients to reduce the total number of inflammatory nodules and abscesses by at least half without an increase in draining wounds and abscesses. Your results may vary.
