Pemphigus Vulgaris (PV) is a rare, severe autoimmune and intraepithelial disease characterized by flaccid blisters and erosions of the skin and mucous membrane. It is histologically marked by acantholysis and is mediated by circulating desmoglein-reactive autoantibodies directed against keratinocyte cell surfaces.
For the treatment of Pemphigus Vulgaris, the majority of the therapies focus on enhancing the symptoms associated with pemphigus by the reduction of serum autoantibodies, either directly or via generalized immune suppression. The most common medication include corticosteroids (prednisolone), anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies (rituximab and ofatumumab), corticosteroid-sparing agents (azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetil, etc.), and cyclophosphamide.
