PsoProtect International Registry

PsoProtect is an international registry for clinicians to report outcomes of COVID-19 in individuals with psoriasis. The registry seeks to improve our understanding of how factors such as immunomodulator therapies and comorbidities impact outcomes to COVID-19 in psoriasis. This information will inform clinicians when assessing risk and treating COVID-19 in patients with psoriasis.

Current guidelines recommend continuing biologic therapy in dermatologic patients who have not tested positive for or exhibited signs/symptoms of COVID-19 and postponing biologic therapy in patients who have tested positive for or exhibited signs/symptoms of COVID-19.^(1-3) In order to help guide current recommendations, we aimed to investigate the incidence and prognostic outcomes of positive SARS-CoV-2 infection in psoriasis patients on biologic therapy.
CONCLUSION: It is particularly crucial to tailor psoriasis care to individual needs in order to protect the physical and mental well-being of patients during the pandemic.
CONCLUSIONS: The COVID-19 pandemic has a negative impact on psoriasis management and healthcare delivery. Dermatologists are cautious about using biologics and immunosuppressive drugs during the pandemic, making case-by-case decisions. Psoriasis patients need compliance monitoring, and psychological support during the pandemic, which can be facilitated by teledermatology.
