We caught up with Dr. Joel M. Gelfand (Penn Medicine; University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA) to discuss the findings from the phase IV study, investigating the impact of apremilast on vascular inflammation and cardiometabolic function when used in the treatment of psoriasis.
The abstract ‘A Phase IV, Open Label Study of the Effects of Apremilast on Vascular Inflammation and Cardiometabolic Function in Psoriasis’ was presented at AAD-VMX 2022, 25-29 March.
