Smoking associated with severity of psoriasis

t to control obesity and smoking in psoriasis patients and an increased appreciation of the effects of these comorbidities are clearly needed." (Arch Dermatol. 2005;141:1527-1534. Available pre-embargo to the media at www.jamamedia.org.)

Editor's Note: This study was supported by a grant from the Dermatology Foundation, Evanston, Ill., and by financial support from LineaGen Inc., Salt Lake City, Utah.

Editorial: Advances in Psoriasis
In an accompanying editorial, Mark G. Lebwohl, M.D., of Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, examines recent advances in psoriasis treatment, and suggests that the impact of those treatments on all dermatologic disease has been profound.

Summarizing the findings of Fortes and colleagues and Herron and colleagues, Dr. Lebwohl writes, "These studies do not answer the question, however, of whether psoriasis leads to smoking or smoking exacerbates psoriasis."

"The current issue of the Archives demonstrates that psoriasis remains a therapeutically and intellectually challenging disease," he concludes. "As research and development continue, we undoubtedly will have better treatments. We can only hope that they will be treatments that patients can afford."
