Psoriasis is a common disease that mainly affects the adult population, and is more frequent in high income countries An improved understanding of the epidemiology of psoriasis is important when allocating resources to reduce morbidity, disability, and mortality associated with the disease on 2 April 2021 by guest. Protected by copyright. Background: Although there have been many epidemiological studies, research focusing on psoriasis’ health burden on a global scale is still lacking.
Trends and variations in the global health burden of psoriasis are evaluated by time, age, gender, geographical location, and socioeconomic status, using disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) from the Global Burden of Disease Study. Objective: To systematically review and provide information on the incidence of psoriasis and quantify global, regional, and country specific estimates of its prevalence. Design: Systematic review and meta-analysis.
Data sources: Medline, Embase, Web of Science, SciELO, Korean Journal Databases, Russian Science Citation Index, WPRIM, SaudiMedLit, Informit, IndMed, and HERDIN were searched. The worldwide incidence and prevalence of psoriasis is poorly understood. To better understand this, we performed a systematic review of published population-based studies on the incidence and prevalence of psoriasis. Three electronic databases were searched from their inception dates to July 2011. . 2. Parisi R, Symmons DPM, Griffiths CEM, Ashcroft DM.

The role of the immune system in psoriasis causation is also a major topic of research. Although there is aGlobal Epidemiology is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed epidemiology journal. Global Epidemiology is global in the broadest sense: we invite articles, and seek to stimulate open debate, across diverse areas of interest, application and geography.
Our mission is to provide a publishing forum for high-quality epidemiologic research and methodological development.
