Study finds new genetic clues to psoriasis

Scientists examine a genetic component of psoriasis.

A study by the University of Michigan has identified new genetic pathways and potential treatment targets for psoriasis.

Researchers aimed to find the genetic causes of psoriasis, one of the most common immune-mediated diseases in the United States.

“We know there are a lot of genes, each with a relatively small effect, in play,” Dr. James T. Elder, professor of dermatology at U-M Medical School, said in a press release. “Those genes combined with the environment lead people to develop psoriasis. This study identified 16 more genetic markers, bringing the total to 63 loci linked to psoriasis.”
