Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory condition involving the spine, enthesis and peripheral joints, which is associated with psoriasis. PsA therapy varies from use of NSAIDs to disease-modifying anti-rheumatic agents (DMARDs). However, their use can represent a limitation in patients with concomitant hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. In the last few decades, anti-TNF-α therapy has opened new horizons in the treatment of PsA. Hence, the purpose of this review is to explore the efficacy and safety of anti-TNF-α agents in PsA and concomitant HCV infection.

Abstract

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory condition involving the spine, enthesis and peripheral joints, which is associated with psoriasis. PsA therapy varies from use of NSAIDs to disease-modifying anti-rheumatic agents (DMARDs). However, their use can represent a limitation in patients with concomitant hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. In the last few decades, anti-TNF-α therapy has opened new horizons in the treatment of PsA. Hence, the purpose of this review is to explore the efficacy and safety of anti-TNF-α agents in PsA and concomitant HCV infection.
