A number of biological agents have been developed or are under development for treating intractable psoriasis and eczema. These interfere with the immune mechanisms that lead to psoriasis or eczema, helping rebalance or normalise the skin’s immune system.
The Biologics Clinic offers specialist services for patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis. Patients receiving these drugs receive ongoing care under the supervision of the dermatologist and the biologic therapy support nurse.
