Abstract/Description: Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory disease that affects 2% of the population. Therapeutic intervention for psoriasis mainly targets inflammatory cascade through the use of topical agents, phototherapy, systemic agents and the newer biologic agents. The efficacy of many treatments used in psoriasis varies from patient to patient, and some of this variance in response can presumably be attributed to genetic differences. While current research findings are still limited, the clinical utilization of pharmacogenetics allows for tailored treatment plans that have the potential for better response amongst patients as well as conserving expenditures and healthcare resources. In this review, we hope to focus and summarize the conclusions and findings of studies done on the topic of pharmacogenetics in the treatment of psoriasis.
