Secukinumab (Cosentyx)

Recommended Posts


 Secukinumab has been in clinical trial since 2017. A recent update from Healio states, "Patients treated with secukinumab for papulopustular rosacea saw significant improvements in quality of life and reduction of severity markers, according to a study presented at the American Academy of Dermatology virtual meeting." [1]

Cosentyx is the brand name for secukinumab, which "is a human IgG1κ monoclonal antibody that binds to the protein interleukin (IL)-17A, and is marketed by Novartis for the treatment of psoriasis, ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriatic arthritis. It inhibits a member of the cytokine family, interleukin 17A." [2] 

"Secukinumab is a recombinant fully human IgG1/kappa monoclonal antibody and is manufactured in Chinese hamster ovary cells." [2]

The clinical trial was small with only 23 participants over sixteen weeks.
