What is Risankizumab
Risankizumab, an interleukin-23 antagonist, is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.
Treatment with risankizumab may increase the risk of infections. Caution is advised when administering the drug to patients with a history of chronic or recurrent infections.
Prior to initiating therapy, all potential drug recipients must be evaluated for tuberculosis (TB) infections.
Do not administer risankizumab to patients with active TB infection; patients with latent TB should initiate treatment before receiving.
