Approximately 125 million people worldwide are affected by psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic immune-mediated disease that is characterized by the development of erythematous, scaly, pruritic and often painful skin plaques. Moreover, an increasing body of literature suggests that psoriasis is associated with elevated rates of major morbidities, including psoriatic arthritis (PsA), depression, and possibly an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
