General purpose: 

Research related to psoriasis may study genetic factors associated with the development of psoriasis, the role of the immune system in the development of psoriasis.

How various treatments for psoriasis affect the skin and joints, and how psoriasis increases the risk of other health problems, like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Psoriasis Clinical Trials

What do clinical trials for Psoriasis involve?

Clinical trials will vary widely in the information they collect, as well as the tests and procedures they use.

All of these factors will depend on individual study designs, which will differ greatly between trials. However, below is a list of common procedures and data that are frequently collected during a trial for psoriasis:

  • Subjective reporting by the patient as to the severity and tolerability of their psoriasis symptoms.
  • Visual inspection and evaluation of psoriasis skin lesions to determine their redness, thickness, and scaliness.
  • Skin biopsy
  • Photographs of psoriasis lesions.
  • Assessments of how psoriasis is affecting the patient’s quality of life.

Examples of Psoriasis- related research topics:

  • Studies comparing a conventional treatment for psoriasis with a newly developed drug to determine which is most effective.
  • Studies that investigate new treatments that are designed to help the skin resist to attacks from the immune system.
  • Studies designed to evaluate the use and effectiveness of laser treatment for psoriasis lesions.
  • Studies investigating the interaction between specific genes and environmental factors, and how that interaction increases the risk of developing psoriasis.
  • Studies that evaluate the effectiveness of treatments that target specific immune system cells that attack the skin and promote the inflammation see in psoriasis.
