Use of special medications called “biologics” that work as immune modulators for the treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis. These medications are usually in the form of injections given on the weekly, be-weekly or three-monthly intervals which could provide significant relief in properly chosen patients. The risk-benefit ratio has to be addressed individually with each patient due to potentially severe adverse effects.
