Abstract

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease of the apocrine gland-rich intertriginous areas.(1) HS lesions have an elevated Th17 immune response, and it is often challenging to treat patients, with existing therapies having limited efficacy.(2,3) We sought to investigate the role of secukinumab, a human monoclonal antibody that inhibits Interleukin-17A, in HS treatment.
