ILUMETRI demonstrated good long-term safety and tolerability, and the PASI 75 response rate increased after 28 weeks of treatment and remained at 91.3% at week 52. Additionally, ILUMYA and ILUMETRI have been licensed for marketing Tildrakizumab Injection in the US, EU, Japan, UK, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, and other nations/regions in various geographies.
