Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that causes skin cells to multiply faster than normal.
Resulting in the build up and formation of bumpy red patches covered with white scales, psoriasis can happen anywhere on the body but most often occurs on the scalp, elbows, knees and lower back.
Psoriasis can lead to an arthritic condition called psoriatic arthritis. Upwards of 30% of individuals with the condition develop this form of arthritis.
Administering biologic medications (e.g. Remicade and Simponi Aria) through IV infusion therapy is a sought after treatment for those with Psoriasis.
