Psoriasis currently exhibits a strong pipeline with 150 drug candidates, according to P&S Intelligence
Psoriasis therapeutics pipeline in 2017
The study analyzed that the psoriasis therapeutics pipeline comprises approximately 150 drug candidates in different stages of development. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that causes red patches covered with white scales on the skin. It is characterized when a person’s immune system sends defective signals which results in skin cells to grow rapidly. The body does not shed these excess skin cells and pile up on the surface of the skin, causing patches of psoriasis to appear. There are five types of psoriasis namely, plaque psoriasis or psoriasis vulgaris, guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis or flexural psoriasis or intertriginous psoriasis, pustular psoriasis, and erythrodermic or exfoliative psoriasis.
