BADBIR — an update on progress and developments
Biologic therapies are an important new treatment option for patients with moderate to severe psoriasis, however, their long-term safety has not been evaluated in this disease group. In 2008, the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) set up a register — the BAD Biologic Interventions Register (BADBIR) — to investigate the long-term outcome of psoriasis patients treated with biologic agents, and thus to better assess the risks associated with such treatments. A previous article in this journal (McElhone K and Jackson K, 2008) provided an introduction to this register and explained the rationale. This article will provide an update on the progress and developments of BADBIR.
