Abstract

EffeCtiveness of biologic treAtmeNts for plaque psOriasis in Italy: An obserVAtional (CANOVA) study was aimed at providing real-world evidence of the effectiveness of biologics in Italian patients with moderate–severe psoriasis. It was an observational, retro-prospective cohort study conducted in 17 Italian dermatology clinics. Adult patients with moderate–severe plaque psoriasis, who started a biologic treatment between 24 weeks and 24 months before enrolment, were included. With a follow-up visit at 6 months after enrolment, each patient had at least 12 months of observation. The primary objective was to describe the clinical response rates (PASI 75) after 16/24/52 weeks from biologic treatment start. Secondary outcomes were sustained response, quality of life, and treatment satisfaction. Of the 669 eligible patients (64% males), 52% were naïve to biologics, though a mean duration of psoriasis since first diagnosis of 18.6 years (SD 13.2). The most frequently prescribed biologics were secukinumab (41%), ustekinumab (25%), TNF-inhibitors (22%) and ixekizumab (12%). PASI 75 was achieved by 86% of patients (95% CI: 82%–89%) at 16 weeks, 90% (87%–93%) at 24 weeks, and 91% (89%–94%) at 52 weeks. Patients achieving PASI 90 and PASI 100 at 52 weeks were 75% (71%–79%) and 53% (49%–57%), respectively. Sustained PASI 75 response after 1 year from treatment start was achieved by 78% (74%–82%) of patients. Mean DLQI total score was 2.3 (SD 3.9) at enrollment and decreased at the final visit to 1.8 (3.6). A high level of treatment satisfaction was expressed by patients over the study period. This large real-world study confirms in the clinical practice the good effectiveness and acceptability of biologics in psoriasis patients.
