Prevalence and refs[edit]

The Psoriasis article and this one have differing prevalence ranges, with the Psoriasis one poorly sourced. While the PubMed search "prevalence of psoriatic arthritis (review[pt])" gave 155 results with respectively (2000:2012[dp]) 119 (2005:2012[dp]) 83 (17 freely available) for the date range restrictions.

  • Prey S, Paul C, Bronsard V; et al. (2010). "Assessment of risk of psoriatic arthritis in patients with plaque psoriasis: a systematic review of the literature". J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol. 24 (Suppl 2): 31–5. doi:10.1111/j.1468-3083.2009.03565.x. PMID 20443998. Psoriasis arthritis may affect up to 24% of psoriasis patients.  Unknown parameter |month= ignored (help) (quote from PubMed abstract)

Could someone with domain knowlege decide if any of these should go in

Intent to revise page[edit]

Hello, I am a freelance writer working with the National Psoriasis Foundation to improve public education about psoriatic arthritis. The Foundation asked me to edit the wikipedia entry on this disease. It is my intention to use wikipedia's recommended outline for medical articles [1], and to incorporate the most current medically-reviewed information from the National Psoriasis Foundation and the Arthritis Foundation.

Please let me know if you have any thoughts on this!

The most important thing from my perspective is that you makes sure you follow WP:MEDRS. Otherwise welcome aboard.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 23:43, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Vitamin D therapy in psoriasis.[edit]

Psoriasis and vitamin D3. A review of our experience.

Arch Dermatol. 1989 Feb;125(2):231-4.

Abstract

Psoriasis is associated with abnormally exaggerated epidermal cellular turnover. Recent studies showed that calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3) a calcitrophic hormone, regulates terminal differentiation of basal cells of epidermal keratinocytes. We administered active forms of vitamin D3 in both oral and topical ways in an open-design study to patients with psoriasis vulgaris. Significant improvement was observed at the end of the study periods in these patients, especially in those treated with topical application of calcitriol. We also found a significant negative correlation between the severity of psoriasis and the basal serum level of 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D but not with those of other calcium-related parameters in psoriatic patients. These data suggest that exogenous active forms of vitamin D3 are effective for treatment of psoriasis and that the endogenous 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D level also may be involved in the development of this skin disease.

Oral vitamin D, still a viable treatment option for psoriasis.

J Dermatolog Treat. 2012 Jan 21. [Epub ahead of print]

PMID 22103655


"The therapeutic use of vitamin D dates back to the 1930s when it was used as an oral agent for osteoporosis on a psoriasis patient who subsequently experienced clearing of psoriatic skin lesions.10 Dermatological application of topical vitamin D3 centers on the fact that the skin is both a site of initial vitamin D biosynthesis and a target for vitamin D3 activity causing modulation of keratinocytes and inflammatory mediators.11" [1]

Thanks, I'll see if I have access and try to incorporate it into the article. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 03:39, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
