Risankizumab (Skyrizi)

Skyrizi (Risankizumab) is a biologic medicine that suppresses the immune system in order to treat psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis.

Skyrizi works by blocking a signalling protein called a cytokine named interleukin-23 (IL-23). This cytokine regulates the body’s immune system and is related to its inflammatory response.

Taking Skyrizi

Skyrizi is available as a pre-filled syringe for subcutaneous (under the skin) injection that can be administered at home.

Although some patients who take Skyrizi can feel better quite quickly, in others it can take a little longer. It is important to keep taking this medicine as prescribed by a doctor.
