Drugs.com Feature – Psoriasis Meds Might Help Fight Heart Trouble, Too
Dr. Michele Green was quoted in a recent Drugs.com article titled “Psoriasis Meds Might Help Fight Heart Trouble, Too”
The article looked at a recent study which involved 121 patients who had moderate to severe psoriasis and qualified for anti-inflammatory medicines called biologic therapies. All participants enrolled in the new study were at low risk of heart disease when starting and after a year of follow-up, the use of biologic therapy was associated with an 8 percent reduction in coronary artery plaque.
Dr. Green noted that “treatments with biologics indeed shows great promise in treating cardiovascular disease.”
