In this issue of Rheumatology Nurse Practice, we will explore the pathways that new agents under investigation for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) are targeting. We will also examine the potential role of biosimilars for patients with PsA as they are introduced more commonly into clinical care.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Other healthcare providers may also participate.
- Assess the impact of commonly cited reasons that lead to underuse of biologics in patients with PsA
- Recall key components of phase 1, 2, 3, and 4 clinical trials
- Identify at least 3 agents under late-stage development for the treatment of PsA
- Discuss recent data related to the real-world use of biosimilars in current clinical practice
