The GLOW Pregnancy Registry

What is a registry and why is it important?

Help us learn more about the safety of using SKYRIZI® (risankizumab-rzaa) and other similar medications during pregnancy.

Who is eligible to participate?

Patients may be eligible if they are:

  • A resident of the United States
  • A pregnant woman diagnosed with plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or Crohn's disease who has:
    • Used SKYRIZI® (risankizumab-rzaa) during pregnancy or just prior to pregnancy (within 20 weeks prior to conception)
    • Used other similar medications for these conditions during pregnancy or just prior to pregnancy*

*Please note: If your patient has used other medications similar to risankizumab, such as TNF inhibitors, IL-17 inhibitors, IL-12/23 inhibitors, or other IL-23 inhibitors, your patient may be eligible to participate. These medications include Stelara (ustekinumab), Cosentyx (secukinumab), Siliq (brodalumab), Taltz (ixekizumab), Tremfya (guselkumab), Ilumya (tildrakizumab), Enbrel (etanercept) or biosimilar (Erelzi, Eticovo, etc), Remicade (infliximab) or biosimilar (Avsola, Inflectra, Ixifi, Renflexis, etc), Humira (adalimumab) or biosimilar (Abrilada, Amjevita, Cyltezo, Hadlima, Hulio, Hyrimoz, etc), Cimzia (certolizumab), Simponi (golimumab), ORENCIA (abatacept), or ENTYVIO (vedolizumab). If your patient has used any of these medications during or just prior to pregnancy, the registry staff can help determine their eligibility.

What is SKYRIZI® (risankizumab-rzaa)?

Risankizumab is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy. Risankizumab is also indicated for the treatment of adults with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and in adults with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease.


Risankizumab is contraindicated in patients with a history of serious hypersensitivity reaction to risankizumab or any of the excipients. Serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, may occur. If a serious hypersensitivity reaction occurs, discontinue risankizumab and initiate appropriate therapy immediately.

Risankizumab may increase the risk of infections. Instruct patients to seek medical advice if signs or symptoms of clinically important infection occur. If such an infection develops, discontinue risankizumab until the infection resolves. Evaluate patients for tuberculosis infection prior to initiating treatment with risankizumab.

Drug-induced liver injury/hepatotoxicity during induction treatment of Crohn’s disease has been reported. Monitor liver enzymes and bilirubin at baseline and during induction (12 weeks). Monitor thereafter according to routine patient management. Consider other treatment options in patients with evidence of liver cirrhosis. Interrupt treatment if drug-induced liver injury is suspected, until this diagnosis is excluded.

Avoid use of live vaccines in patients treated with risankizumab.

The most common adverse reactions (>3%) reported during treatment for Crohn’s disease are upper respiratory infections, headache, and arthralgia during induction dosing and arthralgia, abdominal pain, injection site reactions, anemia, pyrexia, back pain, arthropathy, and urinary tract infection during maintenance dosing.

The most common adverse reactions (≥1%) reported during treatment for plaque psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are upper respiratory infections, headache, fatigue, injection site reactions, and tinea infections.

Why is this study needed?

Psoriasis is often diagnosed before the patient reaches the age of 40 years, therefore women of childbearing potential may receive drug treatment for psoriasis and may get pregnant during treatment.1 The average age of onset for psoriatic arthritis tends to be slightly later and for Crohn’s disease, slightly earlier; however both conditions can affect persons of any age.2,3 Women with active CD also have an increased risk of preterm delivery, low birth weight, and small-for-gestational-age infants.4

Since pregnant women are excluded from clinical trial participation, there are limited data on the potential impact of using plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and Crohn's disease medications during pregnancy on pregnancy and infant outcomes.

Eligible patients and their healthcare providers will provide information to the registry about their pregnancies and the health of their infants up to 1 year of age. This information can be provided by completing paper forms or via a short phone interview with one of the registry staff members. Only information normally documented in patients’ medical records will be collected.

There will be:

  • No extra doctor’s visits or additional testing
  • No changes to patients’ medications or care

Eligible patients and their doctors will receive compensation for providing data to the registry.

The pregnant woman’s healthcare provider(s) will be asked to provide data at enrollment, at approximately the end of the second trimester, and related to pregnancy outcome. For live-born infants, healthcare provider(s) will be asked to provide data at approximately 4 and 12 months after delivery.

The following data will be collected:

  • Maternal obstetrical history
  • Family history of congenital malformations
  • Plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or Crohn's disease history
  • Baseline and ongoing pregnancy information, including pregnancy data and prenatal test information
  • Maternal exposures during pregnancy
  • Maternal medical conditions and pregnancy complications
  • Pregnancy outcome information, including fetus/infant characteristics and presence of congenital malformations
  • Infant growth and development information

Healthcare providers will be compensated when they submit data to the registry

At enrollment, eligible patients will be asked to provide the following information to the registry:

  • Demographic information (e.g. race, ethnicity, education)
  • Height and weight
  • Information about their history of plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, or Crohn's disease
