    We are currently recruiting patients with more than 10% of their skin area affected by psoriasis for a phase 3 clinical trial with a new treatment.

    While we are not specifically looking for patients with psoriatic arthrits, some patients with psoriasis of both the skin and joints may benefit.

    About 30% of people with psoriasis will develop symptoms at tendons, where they join bones (called entheses), the joints and/or the spine.

    These are manifestations of Psoriatic Arthritis.

    Unfortunately, these are often misdiagnosed as most people don't associate these symptoms with their skin disease.

    Apart from the internet, the doctors who treat and manage psoriatic arthritis are Rheumatologists.

    Hope this helps.
