What is Taltz (ixekizumab) for?
Taltz (ixekizumab) is a monoclonal antibody indicated for the treatment of people with:

moderate to severe plaque psoriasis2,3,4 who are candidates for systemic therapy2,3,4 or phototherapy2,3

Active psoriatic arthritis2,4 in adult patients who have responded inadequately to, or who are intolerant to one or more disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) therapies4.

How does Taltz (ixekizumab) work?
The active ingredient in Taltz, ixekizumab, is a humanised interleukin-17A antagonist2; a protein designed to attach to interleukin 17A, a messenger molecule in the immune system. Interleukin 17A is involved in immune system effects, including inflammation, that cause psoriasis1 and psoriatic arthritis. By attaching to interleukin 17A, ixekizumab blocks its action and reduces the activity of the immune system, thereby reducing the symptoms of psoriasis1 and psoriatic arthritis.
