Markers of efficacy of Infliximab in psoriasis patients


The article presents the results of molecular and genetic studies aimed at determination of molecular markers for forecasting
the clinical response of psoriasis patients to treatment with Infliximab. The authors revealed that it is possible to forecast
high efficacy of treatment with Infliximab in case TT genotype is revealed at the 676 locus of exon 6 of the TNF-RII gene and
IL-10 is present in the blood serum prior to the onset of treatment in the amount of more than 2.7 pg/ml.
