Realizing the promise of biologics—protein-based drugs created from genetically modified cells—has been a complex path in dermatology. Clinical trials have revealed complicated safety profiles that earned Valeant's brodalumab (Siliq), a boxed warning and resulted in a different biologic being pulled from the market. The growing volume of biologics studies within dermatology has further highlighted the need for both strict inclusion/exclusion criteria and for careful attention to patient safety.

Psoriasis is a poorly understood skin disorder and autoimmune disease characterized by rapidly dividing skin cells that reach the surface of the skin, eventually leading to red plaques and scales. Although very little is known about the causes of the disorder, previous work has shown an association between psoriasis and hepatitis B and C. Hepatitis C is caused by the hepatitis C virus and chronically affects 71 million people worldwide. Hepatitis B, on the other hand, is caused by the hepatitis B virus and it is estimated that 257 million people have HBV.

In the 30 years since Donna Keller-Ossipov had her first migraine, she's tried everything from pills to Botox to keep the crushing headaches at bay. They've come every few days anyway, forcing her to retreat to a dark room, nauseated and incapacitated.
So when Keller-Ossipov learned of a clinical trial testing "green light therapy" for migraine, she didn't hesitate to sign up. Months after the study ended, she still bathes herself in the green glow of a portable LED light two hours per day, setting it next to her as she winds down at night. She hasn't had a migraine since spring.
