What Lies Beneath: Current and Emerging Treatments for Prurigo Nodularis

Program Overview

Patients with prurigo nodularis (PN) can often go for years undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and as a result, not properly managed. In this Care Team Forum®, we hear firsthand from Tiwana on how it was like living with PN, the impact it has had on her life, her experience seeking medical care, and how she integrates her therapeutic plan into her life. Joining her in discussion are Drs. Shawn Kwatra, Sarina Elmariah, and Sarah Chisolm who will discuss PN from a pathophysiological perspective, highlighting the role of type 2 inflammation, current and newly approved treatment options, as well as emerging therapies for PN.
