Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin.
It typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp, though it can appear on any location. Some people report that psoriasis is itchy, burns and stings. Psoriasis can be associated with rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, and osteoporosis. When untreated, it can lead to other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression.
Medicor Research Inc. is part of a clinical trial to test an investigational medication for adults with Psoriasis. The clinical trial is called 20101177.
