Episode 39: Even The Best Can Get Better: Observations From A Seasoned Veteran of Psoriasis TreatmentRelease Date: November 17, 2022
In Episode 39 of Derms and Conditions, our host James Q. Del Rosso, DO sits down with Jennifer Cather, MD, a dermatologist and Medical Director at Mindful Dermatology and Modern Research Associates in Dallas, Texas, and a good friend of Dr. Del Rosso.
Dr. Cather is an expert in psoriasis as she is currently managing over 1,700 patients on systemic therapy. She and Dr. Del Rosso discuss the exciting new Mind.Px test, a dermal biomarker patch developed by Mindera Health that can noninvasively obtain a sample of a patient’s transcriptome to help determine which biologic they will optimally respond to. Dr. Cather describes how Mind.Px can limit trial-and-error through a targeted approach. Many patients lose faith in psoriasis medications after multiple treatment failures, so data from this test can uncover which drug class, either TNF-inhibitors, IL-17 inhibitors, or IL-23 inhibitors, will work best for them. Precision medicine is a hot new topic with a lot of new information to navigate, so tune in to this episode to learn Dr. Cather’s tips on using the Mind.Px test to improve your psoriasis patients’ outcomes!
