Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by thick, red, scaly plaques that itch and featured by bleeding at times to result in discomfort and emotional stress for patients.

This finding is believed to give relief to 2-4 percent of the worldwide population affected by psoriasis, including approximately 5.8 to 7.5 million Americans affected by the condition.

Dr. David remarked that though the study suggested an association between psoriasis, diabetes and atherosclerosis, the cause of this association is not known by now besides why there is an increased risk of both conditions in women and certain age groups.

Alteration in Steroid Receptor Genes create Fat Burning MuscleA single protein in a combination with a related protein can play a pivotal role in the complex journey of the body to obesity, as per Dr. Ronald M. Evans, a Howard Hughes Medical Investigator at The Salk Institute’s Gene Expression Laboratory.

Evans further remarked that this study can provide the latest, specific approach to cure obesity related ailments such as atherosclerosis, hyperlipidemiama, and resistance to insulin.

Dr. Evans pointed out that PPARd (Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta) which acts as a master regulator in controlling ability of the body cells to burn fat, can suppress artery’s inflammatory response with an aim to dramatically slowdown progression of the lesion. The study revealed that the PPARd drugs can prove to be effective in inhibiting atherosclerosis by limiting the level of inflammation besides enhancing physical performance.
