Psoriasis is a chronic hyperproliferative and inflammatory skin disease caused by the interplay of genetic and environmental factors. DNA methylation has been linked to psoriasis, but the manner in which this process contributes to the disease is not fully understood. In this study, we carried out a three-stage epigenome-wide association study to identify… CONTINUE READING
