Dosing in specific patient populations

In elderly patients (≥ 65 years) is no dose adjustment required. There is limited information in subjects aged ≥ 75 years.1

Ixekizumab has not been studied in patients with renal or hepatic impairment. No dose recommendations can be made.1

Therapeutic Indication

Ixekizumab, alone or in combination with methotrexate, is indicated for the treatment of active psoriatic arthritis in adult patients who have responded inadequately to, or who are intolerant to one or more disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) therapies.1

Ixekizumab is intended for use under the guidance and supervision of a physician experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions for which Ixekizumab is indicated.1
