Recently, researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia joined forces with a team from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.They wanted to measure the effects of ustekinumab on something other than skin.It is prescribed for people whose psoriasis has not responded well to other treatments, or who cannot tolerate other available medicines.The drug has also been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat Crohn's disease.

This relationship is particularly pronounced in individuals who have severe psoriasis.

Ustekinumab, sold as Stelara, is an antibody that interferes with the body's inflammatory response.Their findings were recently presented at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting, held in San Diego, CA.

Dr.Because ustekinumab reduces the inflammation associated with psoriasis, the researchers wanted to explore whether or not it could benefit heart health by reducing inflammation there, too. Gelfand adds, "Since ustekinumab blocks the specific pathways involved in both skin and cardiovascular inflammation, we wanted to test whether it can improve aortic vascular inflammation." Their study involved 43 participants with psoriasis, of whom 21 were assigned to the control group and 22 received ustekinumab.I actually had a date scheduled for this past Sunday and had to cancel because of extreme/debilitating fatigue.
