HUMIRA: Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment

HUMIRA helps to reduce the joint pain and skin symptoms of psoriatic arthritis.

In a clinical study of adult patients with active psoriatic arthritis using HUMIRA, some people experienced an improvement in symptoms. See the results below.

REDUCED PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS SYMPTOMS IN AS LITTLE AS 12 WEEKS

At Week 12, more patients saw a 20% improvement in signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis when using HUMIRA than those treated with a placebo.

IMPROVED SKIN SYMPTOMS

For those evaluated for skin symptoms, the majority of people saw a 75% improvement on HUMIRA at 24 weeks.

Some patients saw improvements as soon as 2 weeks.

A placebo is a substance that has no physical effect. In a clinical study, it is given to one group of patients, while the drug being tested is given to another group, then the results are compared.

Results may take 24 weeks or longer. Individual results may vary.

Helped Stop Further Joint Damage

In a study, patients taking HUMIRA showed a reduction in further joint damage, compared with patients taking placebo, at week 24 and this effect was maintained at 48 weeks. 91% of patients taking HUMIRA for PsA showed no further joint damage (as measured by an X-ray) after 24 weeks of treatment, compared with 71.1% of patients taking placebo.

For less severe symptoms, your doctor may consider:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): For mild pain and inflammation, affecting only a couple of joints.
  • Corticosteroids: Prescribed when joints are inflamed.
  • Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs): For more persistent symptoms affecting multiple joints.

Is your current medication meeting your treatment expectations?

You and your doctor may have tried more than one treatment for psoriatic arthritis without getting the results you’re looking for.

If you aren’t seeing adequate joint and skin results, it may be time to discuss a biologic treatment option with your doctor. HUMIRA is proven to help relieve joint pain, prevent further irreversible joint damage, and help in achieving clearer skin in many adults. It works from the inside out to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to joint and skin symptoms.


Treating symptoms can help prevent further joint damage.

The inflammation that causes joint pain in psoriatic arthritis may cause permanent joint damage in some people. But treating with HUMIRA can help reduce symptoms, which may make it easier for you to perform daily activities.
