Background

In psoriasis, a specific cytokine network has been described to play a central role in the pathophysiology of the disease. Anti-cytokine therapeutic approaches have been largely developed and TNFα constitutes the main target. Adalimumab is a human anti-TNFα monoclonal antibody that has been reported to demonstrate clinical efficacy and safety, resulting in reversal of epidermal hyperplasia and cutaneous inflammation.
