The reported prevalence of psoriasis in Europe varies from 0.6% to 6.5% with an average of approximately 3% of the population3,4 making psoriasis a serious global problem with more than 100 million individuals affected worldwide.5 The flares of psoriasis can be unpredictable and significant comorbidities are common, including arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease and depression.4
