Whitney is one of the many patients who was prescribed and found relief with STELARA®.
The right treatment might help you with your joint and skin symptoms. STELARA® is a proven therapy that treats and helps control the main symptoms of psoriatic arthritis.
Do you experience one or more of the 4 key signs of PsA?
- JOINT Swollen or tender joints
- PSORIATIC PLAQUES Raised, red, scaly patches on the skin
- ENTHESITIS Swelling at the place where the tendon attaches to the bone
- DACTYLITIS Swelling that runs the entire length of fingers or toes, sometimes known as “sausage digits”
Have joint and skin symptoms? They might be related
If you’ve received a psoriasis diagnosis and are now experiencing any or all of the other signs on the list, you may have psoriatic arthritis. The sooner you’re able to pinpoint your symptoms and share them all with your rheumatologist, the easier it will be to find a treatment.
STELARA® can help
STELARA® is a prescription medicine approved to treat adults with active psoriatic arthritis either alone or with methotrexate. Proven to help control the four key signs of PsA, STELARA® needs to be administered four times a year (after two starter doses)* — less than any other PsA treatment of its kind. Ask your doctor or rheumatologist how STELARA® can help.
How STELARA® Works
With one medication, you may be able to control both the joint and skin symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. STELARA® targets an overactive immune system. STELARA® is the only biologic that works by blocking two proteins, IL-12 and IL-23, which may play a role in psoriatic arthritis. By blocking these proteins, STELARA® may help reduce the inflammation that causes both the joint and skin symptoms.
