Market Scenario

Psoriasis is a chronic non-contagious disease in which a person’s immune system sends faulty signals directing skin cells to grow too quickly. New skin cells forms in days rather than weeks resulting in their pilling up on the surface of the skin, causing patches of psoriasis.  Most of the time it also affects fingers and nails resulting in painful disfiguration and partial disability. Psoriasis affects mostly knees, elbows, and scalp, but other body parts may also be affected. Thus, it has a heavy negative effect on the quality of life and results in social stigma. Although it can occur at any age but most commonly it occurs in the age group of 50–70. The exact cause and etiology of psoriasis is still unknown but usually auto-immunity, genetics and environmental factors are involved. Psoriasis is also associated with a host of co-morbidities such as psoriatic arthritis, ophthalmologic pathologies, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease etc. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 1.3% to 34.7% of individuals with psoriasis develop chronic psoriatic arthritis which may lead to joint deformations and disability. From 4.2% to 69% of all patients suffering from psoriasis develop nail changes. WHO also predicts that psoriasis affects about 100 million people with prevalence rates ranging from 0.09% to 11.43% in different countries. Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis affecting 90% of all cases of psoriasis.
