Details revealed behind psoriasis and wound repair: 2 sides of the same coin
The dynamic properties of the skin that take charge when a cut or scrape needs healing are critical for maintaining the skin's integrity, but if they get out of control, they can cause problems in the form of psoriasis and other skin disorders. Researchers have now uncovered key information on how cells are stimulated to multiply during these processes. The information might be used to develop new treatments for psoriasis and hard-to-heal skin wounds. (2012-06-21)

Research opens new treatment strategies for specific form of psoriasis
Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease that is characterized by patches of abnormal and inflamed skin.

A VIB/UGent research team now reveals the molecular signaling mechanism by which mutations in CARD14 lead to increased inflammation in patients with psoriasis. (2016-04-25)

Stimulating a protein in skin cells could improve psoriasis symptoms
Environmental contaminants can trigger psoriasis and other autoimmune disorders, and it is thought that a protein called the aryl hydrocarbon receptor, which senses environmental toxins, could play a role. A new study in Immunity shows that the severity of inflammation associated with psoriasis is unexpectedly suppressed by AhR. The findings suggest that stimulation of AhR could improve symptoms and may represent a novel strategy for treating chronic inflammatory skin disorders. (2014-06-05)
