In a new study, scientist have discovered biological processes that may explain why the skin thickens with psoriasis. This can help in the development of new treatments for the disease.
Scientists from Rockefeller University, USA, found that skin stem cells permanently “memorize” wounds or other traumas that cause inflammation in order to heal such damage more quickly. The results of a study, published October 18, 2017 in Nature, can help in the research and treatment of psoriasis, as well as other inflammatory diseases.
Treatment of psoriasis with stem cells
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic, long-lasting autoimmune disease of the skin. According to the current estimates, from 2 to 4% of the global population are affected. While there are different types of psoriasis, 90% of the cases usually manifest as plaques (inflamed white scales) on the skin.
