Abstract
Updates on managing some of the most common dermatologic conditions for which patients seek care illuminated presentations at the Skin Disease Education Foundation's 42nd Annual Hawaii Dermatology Seminar®. This educational supplement summarizes the highlights of clinical sessions presented during this CME/CE conference. Treatment of psoriasis has continued to advance, with three interleukin (IL)-17 antagonists approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a fourth in phase 3 trials. An authority on the use of biologics in psoriasis presents current data on the safety and efficacy of these therapies. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors also retain a place in the management of psoriasis, with records of long-term safety. A fourth TNF inhibitor awaits FDA approval for use in psoriasis, offering data on transmission during pregnancy and lactation. An expert on the use of this drug class presents the evidence. Topical therapies remain the cornerstone of care for many patients with psoriasis as well as those with rosacea. Our faculty update readers about new and investigational topical therapies for moderate or severe psoriasis, as well as for acne and rosacea. The current literature on monitoring patients receiving isotretinoin also is summarized. Aesthetic and cosmetic dermatology services form a sizable portion of some practices. Our faculty review data on safety of topical and procedural therapies for cellulite as well as safe injection of facial fillers.
