Cause of Psoriasis, better known as "causes of Psoriasis".
This website claims that if we better understand psoriasis, we might be able to design drugs to fix the "broken" parts of the system. For example, if I membrane protein has the wrong amino acid and the protein does its job too well, never stopping, we could try to make a drug that blocks that protein. The human body is composed of numerous biochemical systems. In psoriasis, it isn't simply one membrane protein that is overreacting... Psoriasis isn't one disease.... There are probably multiple different "changes" in any of thousands of proteins that lead to the disease. Alone, any single mutation has not been shown to cause psoriasis like some other disease. However, it is suspected that there is a combination of mutations variations, and environmental alterations that results in the manifestation of an overactive immune system with flaking of the skin as defined by the term Psoriasis.
