Abstract

ARRUDA, Lúcia; YPIRANGA, Sylvia  and  MARTINS, Gladys Aires. Systemic treatment of psoriasis - Part II: Biologic immunomodulator agents. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.4, pp. 393-408. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000400002.

As part of its continued studies of psoriasis, this second part of the Continuing Medical Education in Dermatology segment of the Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia introduces biological immunomodulators. Also known as "biologics", these drugs act on the immunopathogenetic steps of psoriasis by changing its features and progression. This paper also reviews some of the immunologic aspects of psoriasis.

Keywords : psoriasis; psoriasis [immunology]; psoriasis [therapy].
