Psoriasis treatment

Aug 26, 2018

Hello Dr. Holodniy. I am currently undetectable and CD4 in the 1000's. Can Cosentyx, a class of monoclonal antibodies, be prescribed for my psoriasis? To what extent psoriasis medications can impact my immune system? Thanks for your time!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although there is no absolute contraindication to giving Cosentyx to HIV infected people, and in fact some have already received it without incident, caution is always advised when giving immunomodulators to people with HIV infection.

CD4 is 271
