Resumen

Treatment of moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis with biologics, such as guselkumab, has demonstrated greater efficacy over traditional non-biologic treatments. However, given patient diversity, greater understanding of the relationship between patient characteristics, positive clinical outcomes, and long-term response to biologics is crucial for optimizing treatment choices. This post-hoc analysis of the 5-year VOYAGE 1 clinical trial compares baseline characteristics of patients maintaining a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score of 0 at all visits for ≥ 156 consecutive weeks (PASI = 0 group) with those that never achieve PASI = 0 (comparator group), using descriptive statistics and a multiple logistic regression model. Guselkumab plasma trough concentrations in both response groups were assessed from Weeks 4-156. Of patients who started guselkumab treatment at Week 0 or at Week 16 after switching from placebo, 22.7% (112/494) maintained PASI = 0 for ≥ 156 consecutive weeks. Numerical differences in baseline characteristics, including age, obesity, diabetes, PASI score, disease duration, smoking status, and psoriatic arthritis comorbidity, were identified between the PASI = 0 group and comparator group. Plasma guselkumab levels were consistently higher in the PASI = 0 group. Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed absence of diabetes, lower Dermatology Life Quality Index score at baseline, and higher Week 4 guselkumab plasma concentration as significantly (p < 0.05) associated with the PASI = 0 group. A substantial (22.7%) number of guselkumab-treated patients in the VOYAGE 1 clinical trial maintained complete skin clearance for a consecutive period of ≥ 156 weeks. Factors associated with this outcome may suggest clinical benefits of holistic treatment approaches. NCT02207231.
