Masterclass: Is There a Role for TNF Inhibitors in 2023?
24 April @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
IL17 and IL23 have largely superseded TNF inhibitors in psoriasis. However, they still play a significant role in rheumatology and gastroenterology. We discuss where TNF inhibitors fit in the treatment options for psoriasis and explore TNF inhibitors and their competitors in inflammatory arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
