The exact cause is unknown, but plaque psoriasis has been linked to the immune system and an excess of several proteins in the body, including one called TNF-alpha. Everybody produces TNF-alpha, but people with plaque psoriasis produce more than normal. Too much TNF-alpha may lead to faster growth of skin cells, which can lead to the plaques—red, flaky patches—you see on your skin.
Watch how HUMIRA works from inside your body to target and block a source of inflammation that may lead to plaques on your skin.
HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis who are ready for systemic therapy or phototherapy, and are under the care of a doctor who will decide if other systemic therapies are less appropriate.
In clinical trials, most adults taking HUMIRA were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% skin clearance in just 4 months. Your results may vary.
