ustekinumab (UST) is a human interleukin (IL)-12/IL-23 monoclonal antibody that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and Crohn's disease. Off-label use of UST has shown promising results for hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) in patients that have failed therapy with adalimumab, the only FDA approved treatment for HS.
