In The Know: Which drugs are US dermatologists prescribing most for psoriasis?

In a survey last year, 100 US-based dermatologists were asked to identify how psoriasis drug brands were impacted by a series of market forces. Analysis of these survey results examined parameters such as the number of physicians prescribing each brand, how physicians choose which drugs to prescribe and the market share of competing brands. The survey found that among the eight featured brands, Humira was prescribed the most (by 96% of physicians polled), as shown in Table 1 below.
