Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin. Around one-third of people with psoriasis report a family history of the disease, and researchers have identified genetic loci associated with the condition. Psoriasis has a strong hereditary component. The patient has the problem, but also there is a big chance that their family members also can be affected. More than 125 million people worldwide suffer from psoriasis including some of our friends and family members. Each year these people spend over EUR 8B on psoriasis treatment worldwide. Scientists and market researchers forecast that the global psoriasis treatment market will be worth $12B (€10B) by 2024.
