Tremfya (Guselkumab) is a biologic medicine that suppresses the immune system in order to treat psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis.
Tremfya works by blocking a signalling protein (cytokine) named interleukin-23 (IL-23). These cytokines regulate the body's immune system and are related to its inflammatory response.
Tremfya is available as a pre-filled syringe that can be administered at home.
Although some patients who take Tremfya 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.
