Background: How biologics affect psoriasis patients' risks for SSTIs in a pragmatic clinical setting remains unclear. Methods: In a cohort of adult psoriasis outpatients (aged 20 years or older) who visited the Dermatology Clinic in 2010-2015, we compared incident SSTI risks between patients using biologics (users) versus nonbiologics (nonusers). We also estimated SSTI risks in biologics-associated time-periods relative to nonbiologics only in users. We applied random effects Cox proportional hazard models with propensity score-stratification to account for differential baseline hazards. Results: Over a median follow-up of 2.8 years (interquartile range: 1.5, 4.3), 172 of 922 patients ever received biologics (18.7%); 233 SSTI incidents occurred during 2518.3 person-years, with an overall incidence of 9.3/100 person-years (95% confidence interval [CI]: 8.1, 10.6). In univariate analysis, users showed an 89% lower risk for SSTIs than nonusers (hazard ratio [HR]: 0.11, 95%CI: 0.05, 0.26); the association persisted in a multivariable model (adjusted HR: 0.26, 95%CI: 0.12, 0.58). Among biologics users, biologics-exposed time-periods were associated with a nonsignificant 21% increased risk (adjusted HR: 1.21, 95%CI: 0.41, 3.59). Conclusions: Despite of adjusting for the underlying risk profiles, risk comparisons between biologics users and nonusers remained confounded by treatment selection. By comparing time-periods being exposed versus unexposed to biologics among users, the current analysis did not find evidence for an increased SSTI risk that was associated with biologics use in psoriasis patients.
