Eli Lilly's Taltz receives FDA approval for treatment of PsA
Eli Lilly and Company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Taltz injection 80 mg/mL for the treatment of adults with active psoriatic arthritis. Taltz was first approved by the FDA in March 2016 for the treatment of adult patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy. "PsA is a chronic, progressive and painful form of inflammatory arthritis that impacts approximately 1.6 million Americans living with the disease," said Christi Shaw, president, Lilly Bio-Medicines. "We are proud to offer a new treatment option that can provide improvements in joint symptoms for these patients, further demonstrating Lilly's overall commitment to immunology."
