We have our own commitment – finding a cure for psoriatic disease – and we welcome you to help us reach the finish line!
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that causes inflammation in the body and can impact other organs and tissues. Over 8 million Americans have psoriasis and nearly a third of them will develop psoriatic arthritis. Symptoms often start between ages 15 and 25, but can start at any age. People of all ages and skin tones can get psoriasis.
