Description

Summary

This study examines the effect of IL-23 blockade with Tildrakizumab on the immune cells of psoriatic skin lesions.

Details

This is a one-arm, open-label study to examine the effect of Tildrakizumab. Tildrakizumab is a FDA-approved medication for the treatment of cutaneous psoriasis. This study will examine how Tildrakizumab affects immune cells within psoriatic skin lesions. Fifteen subjects with moderate to severe psoriasis will be enrolled. Biopsy samples will be collected and undergo molecular profiling to correlate profiles with and to predict Tildrakizumab treatment response.
