Because psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (AD) can greatly affect quality of life in pediatric patients, the development of treatments with low-side effect profiles and less laboratory monitoring is essential. Vincent A. DeLeo, MD, talks to Amy S. Paller, MD, and Jennifer B. Scott, MD, about biologics approved for psoriasis and AD in the pediatric population. “Progressively, we’ve seen the newer biologics being more and more effective in both adults and in children, so we’re able to take some of the more effective ones and apply them to our children and adolescents with psoriasis ... We keep raising the bar in children as well as adults,” Dr. Paller reflects. They also discuss the advantages and pitfalls of biologics versus traditional systemic treatments as well as therapies on the horizon.
