Abstract

Bimekizumab, a novel humanized monoclonal IgG1 antibody that neutralizes both IL-17A and IL-17F, was recently approved the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults who are candidates for systemic therapy. Bimekizumab represents the latest anti IL-17 treatment available for the management of moderate to severe psoriasis. Bimekizumab safety and efficacy profiles were evaluated in four Phase III clinical trials, which evaluated bimekizumab versus placebo and ustekinumab (BE VIVID), versus placebo (BE READY), versus adalimumab (BE SURE), and versus secukinumab (BE RADIANT). Overall, bimekizumab displayed promising results in terms of both efficacy and safety, allowing reach PASI90 and PASI100 in short time (as early as week 4) and maintain it in the long term (52 weeks), with acceptable safety profile. Also, bimekizumab showed a rapid onset of response and a higher efficacy when compared to adalimumab, ustekinumab and secukinumab, with comparable safety profile. Herein, we carried out a comprehensive literature review of the available literature data about bimekizumab in the treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis.
