Psoriasis is a common condition that can affect all ages. It's thought approximately 2% of the population are affected by this skin condition. It presents as a chronic, scaly rash. It does tend to run in families, so genetics are a factor. However psoriasis can also be influenced by environmental factors. Contrary to some opinions, it is not contagious and the condition isn't caused by allergies. For more information on psoriasis, please visit this page.

The Skin Centre is currently three trials relating to this condition, however these specific trials are not recruiting at this time. The Skin Centre will be conducting a further psoriasis trial, so please keep your eye on the website for recruiting details. If you suffer moderate to severe plaque psoriasis and are interested, please contact our Research Manager.
