Introduction: Tildrakizumab is a monoclonal antibody that targets the p19 subunit of IL-23, a crucial cytokine for Th17 cells. Tildrakizumab has been assessed in several Phase I, II, and III clinical trials and is approved for treatment of adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who are indicated for systemic therapy. Areas covered: The available evidence on the efficacy, safety, and use of tildrakizumab in special populations was evaluated by 14 experts who critically reviewed the current literature. Expert opinion: Tildrakizumab has good efficacy that lasts for at least 5 years in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis, and appears to be safe and well tolerated in the long-term with no apparent dose-related differences in adverse events, a low incidence of discontinuation due to adverse events, and no evidence of increased risk of malignancies. The safety and the efficacy of tildrakizumab has also been confirmed in special populations such as those with inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, and advanced age. Early intervention with IL-23-inhibitors, such as tildrakizumab, may help to control symptoms and change the long-term course of the disease in patients affected by plaque psoriasis, while improving the quality of life and potentially minimizing the risk of developing comorbidities.
