Research Review on Psoriasis 2

This research review on psoriasis looks at a multi-centre Australian study published in JAMA on the association between paediatric psoriasis and waist-to-height ratio in the absence of obesity, which suggests a positive association in a group of 200 children attending a tertiary referral centre paediatric dermatology clinic and one of two private specialist dermatologists’ consultant rooms. This study highlights the potential impact of central adiposity in children with this condition. Another study, from Germany, investigating the German Psoriasis Arthritis Diagnostic (GEPARD) questionnaire developed for the early detection of psoriatic arthritis (PsA), shows the tool to be helpful in screening for such patients. Other studies in this review include the investigation of periodontitis and the risk of psoriasis, stigmatisation in psoriasis, ixekizumab in biologic naive versus experienced patients, and PASI score and quality of life.
