Study of the genetic factors predisposing to the development of psoriasis


Many findings confirm the influence of neuropsychic factors on the manifestation and exacerbation of the atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. Nowadays it is assumed that by means of neurotransmitters’ secretion the nervous system can influence different processes, including the immune mediated inflammation, which has the key role in the pathogenesis of such dermatosis. The article hereunder contains comprehensive data on prospective trends of following studies of the nervous regulation participation in the pathogenesis of such dermatosis.
