ABSTRACT

Infliximab is an anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha monoclonal antibody that is highly effective for the treatment of psoriatic disease. During maintenance treatment, some patients may experience a disease relapse, and, in such circumstances, dose intensification is frequently used to regain efficacy. We report our cumulative experience on the use of infliximab re-induction in patients whose psoriasis relapsed during long-term maintenance treatment with infliximab. From September 2005 to January 2009, 22 patients required re-induction because of a relapse of their psoriasis. Re-induction was effective in restoring response in most patients and was well tolerated in all cases, without occurrence of serious or unexpected adverse events.
