Efficacy Established in a Worldwide Trial
In adult chronic moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, ENBREL has demonstrated rapid and sustained efficacy*, including sustained improvement in symptoms from 12–24 weeks in a worldwide plaque psoriasis clinical trial.4-7
*Median time for achieving a PASI 75 response was approximately 2 months.
ENBREL Recaptured Almost All of Initial Response
The data in these graphs are not meant to establish a
dosing protocol for retreatment.
ENBREL recaptured almost all of initial response in patients at 12 weeks after retreatment at both 50 mg BIW
and 25 mg BIW.4,7,8
85% of surveyed physicians (n = 304) agree that moderate to severe plaque psoriasis patients on biologic therapy take planned or unplanned "drug holidays" at some point during treatment.4*
*In an online Harris Poll survey, 304 dermatologists were asked, "Please indicate whether you disagree, agree, or neither agree nor disagree with the following statement: Moderate to severe plaque psoriasis patients on biologic therapy sometimes take planned or unplanned 'drug holidays' at some point during treatment."
ENBREL is indicated for reducing signs and symptoms, inducing major clinical response, inhibiting the progression of structural damage, and improving physical function in patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis. ENBREL can be initiated in combination with methotrexate (MTX) or used alone.
ENBREL is indicated for reducing signs and symptoms of moderately to severely active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in patients ages 2 and older.
ENBREL is indicated for reducing signs and symptoms, inhibiting the progression of structural damage of active arthritis, and improving physical function in patients with psoriatic arthritis. ENBREL can be used in combination with methotrexate in patients who do not respond adequately to methotrexate alone.
ENBREL is indicated for reducing signs and symptoms in patients with active ankylosing spondylitis.
ENBREL is indicated for the treatment of adult patients (18 years or older) with chronic moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.
Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis
In medical studies, nearly half of patients saw 75% skin clearance in their moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in 3 months with ENBREL. Overall, 3 out of 4 patients saw 50% skin clearance in 3 months. ENBREL can work fast; many patients saw improvement within 2 months. Your results may vary.
In a medical study, ENBREL was shown to be effective in about 50% of psoriatic arthritis patients who used it at 6 months. Clinical responses were apparent at the time of the first visit (4 weeks) and were maintained through 6 months of therapy.
Over 1.5 million Americans are affected by moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.1,2
