Meta-Analysis Shows Patients With Psoriasis at Significantly Elevated Risk for Cancer

In a study presented at the British Association of Dermatologists’ 99th Annual Meeting in Liverpool, United Kingdom, July 2-4, 2019, researchers from the University of Manchester and the Salford Royal National Health Service Foundation Trust reported on an effort to assess evidence on the risk of cancer in patients with psoriasis. They found that there are a number of site-specific cancers for which patients with psoriasis are at elevated risk.

This study was funded by the Global Psoriasis Atlas (GPA). The Global Psoriasis Atlas is a joint project of the ILDS (International League of Dermatological Societies), IFPA (International Federation of Psoriasis Associations ) and IPC (International Psoriasis Council), working to provide common benchmark on the complete burden of psoriasis in all countries and regions throughout the world.
