The role of IL-17 and IL-17 receptor inhibitors in the management of generalized pustular psoriasis
Plachouri, K.-M., Chourdakis, V., Georgiou, S.
Generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is a severe psoriasis form that can be refractory to several systemic treatments. The role of interleukin (IL)-17/ T-helper 17 (Th17) axis inhibitors in the therapy of GPP is not fully established. The objective of this paper is to summarize the existing information on the efficacy and safety of secukinumab, ixekizumab and brodalumab in GPP. Articles published in the English language and derived from the databases MEDLINE (PubMed), Embase and Scopus were assessed for this study. Although the existing data on the potential therapeutic benefit of these agents in the treatment of GPP are encouraging, further studies are needed so as to provide sufficient evidence for their use in this serious condition.
