GENETICS OF PSORIASIS AND PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS
AbstractPsoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are linked diseases characterised by (distinct ?) immune-mediated pathogenetic mechanisms and by a genetic background interacting with environmental factors. Some candidate susceptibility genes have been studied extensively; they include HLA genes, genes within the HLA region and genes outside the HLA region; among them corneodesmosin and other genes of PSORS1 region, MICA and TNF-a polymorphisms. The main findings in the literature are discussed. Key words: Genetics, psosriasis, psoriatic arthritis
