    Secukinumab Advances for Psoriasis

    The anti-IL-17 antibody drug secukinumab (AIN457) appeared significantly
    effective against moderate to severe psoriasis affecting the hands and
    feet in a phase II study, its manufacturer said.

    New analyses from a previously reported 404-patient randomized trial
    showed that symptoms in the hands and feet were substantially reduced in
    54% of patients receiving secukinumab after 1 month, compared with 19%
    of placebo-treated patients (P=0.005), Novartis said in a statement.
    Symptoms in the nails were also relieved significantly more with the
    drug than with placebo, the company indicated.

    The findings were reported at the European Academy of Dermatology and
    Venereology in Prague last week.

    Secukinumab is also being evaluated for rheumatoid arthritis, though
    results so far have been mixed.

    1) Rejoice always, Pray continually, Give thanks in all circumstances,
    For this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ( I Thessalonians
    5:16-18 NIV )

    2) ANGELS EXIST, but some times, since they don't all have wings, we
    call them FRIENDS......

    3) Just because you're in pain, doesn't mean you have to be one!
