BACKGROUND: Several studies have reported an association between tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) polymorphisms and inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis vulgaris and psoriatic arthritis, although the results vary according to the population studied. No studies have been performed in the Spanish population. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the polymorphisms of the promoter region of the TNF-α gene in patients with moderate to severe psorasis and to identify potential differences in genotype compared to a group of healthy volunteers...

Psoriasis is a skin disorder which is caused by a genetic fault. Although there is no cure for psoriasis, there are many treatment modalities to help control the disease. To evaluate treatment efficacy, the current gold standard method, PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index), is used to measure psoriasis severity by evaluating the area, erythema, scaliness and thickness of the plaques. However, the determination of PASI can be tedious and subjective. In this work, we develop a computer vision method that determines one of the PASI parameters, the lesion area...

Several lines of compelling epidemiologic evidence indicate that susceptibility to psorasis is inherited, albeit not in a simple monogenic fashion. Psoriasis is one of a number of diseases with a presumed autoimmune pathogenesis that display significant human leukocyte antigen (HLA) associations. However, only a small fraction of those who carry the implicated HLA susceptibility alleles develop disease. Taken together with the epidemiologic data indicative of high heritability, this observations suggests that one or more loci in addition to HLA are necessary for the development of psoriasis...
