Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease whose prevalence varies among different populations worldwide. It is a complex multi-factorial disease and the exact etiology is largely unknown. Family based studies have indicated a genetic predisposition; however they cannot fully explain the disease pathogenesis. In addition to genetic susceptibility, environmental as well as gender and age related factors were also been found to be associated. Recently, imbalances in epigenetic networks are… Expand
Genomic alterations driving psoriasis pathogenesis.
TLDR
The review presents an updates on reported genomic alterations and their subsequent course of cutaneous inflammations that potentially drive to psoriasis. Expand

TLDR
The inhibition of expression in selected miRNAs may be a new promising therapy option for patients with psoriasis as they regulate abnormal keratinocyte differentiation and proliferation. Expand
The Role of Epigenetic Factors in Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic, immune-mediated disease with an incidence of approximately 2%. The pathogenesis of the disease is complex and not yet fully understood. Genetic factors play aExpand
Critical role of environmental factors in the pathogenesis of psoriasis
TLDR
The pathogenesis of psoriasis is reviewed and numerous clinical data are summarized to reveal the association between environmental factors and Psoriasis and a series of potential treatments against environmental risk factors are provided. Expand
Genetics of Psoriasis
TLDR
Several genetic susceptibility loci show differential associations between ethnic populations, suggesting potential genetic heterogeneity of psoriasis across diverse ancestries, and HLA-Cw6 allele is the most important risk allele within the MHC Class I region. Expand
MicroRNAs as regulatory elements in psoriasis
TLDR
Opinions are shared about how and which microRNAs are as regulatory in psoriasis are shared. Expand
The Inflammatory Response in Psoriasis: a Comprehensive Review
TLDR
Significant challenges remain in developing safe and efficacious novel targeted therapies that depend on a better understanding of the immunological dysfunction in psoriasis, as well as developing increasingly efficient targeted treatment by blocking relevant inflammatory signaling pathways and molecules.

TLDR
Using psoriasis as an IMD model, it is concluded that disease-associated HLA alleles account for both missing heritability and autoimmune mechanisms by facilitating tissue-specific autoimmune responses through autoantigen presentation. Expand

TLDR
relevant epigenetic findings associated with psoriasis are reviewed, and clues and directions for further studies in this field are provided. Expand
An update on the genetics of psoriasis.
TLDR
Evidence for the assignment of a number of non-MHC loci has been achieved through studies, including the collaborative analysis of large patient cohorts, and also through the observation of overlap between psoriasis and atopic dermatitis susceptibility regions. Expand
Epigenetics in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of psoriasis vulgaris.
TLDR
Interestingly, the altered methylation patterns observed in psoriasis appear to be normalized by treatment with biologics directed at TNF-α inhibition, and the amenability of cutaneous disease to topical therapies may elevate their usefulness in the treatment of this common skin disorder. Expand
Exclusion of CARD15/NOD2 as a candidate susceptibility gene to psoriasis in the Italian population.
TLDR
The distribution of 3 CARD15 SNPs in an Italian case-control data set failed to observe any significant difference between patients and controls, thereby excluding the presence of a strong genetic association between CARD15 gene polymorphisms and psoriasis, in the Italian population. Expand
