4 doctors agree

In brief: No Cure

But there are highly effective treatments.
Some are pills such as methotrexate. Often, we now use biologic medications, like Enbrel, Humira, Remicade, or Stelara (ustekinumab). Most recently a new pill was approved called Otezla. A rheumatologist is experienced in treating psoriatic arthritis.

In brief: No

Unfortunately not yet but with newer medications we are able to achieve the goal of remission much more often than decades ago.

In brief: Can be treated

but not cured. See a rheumatologist and discuss which options (biologicals or other treatment) is appropriate in your situation.
