Large study finds link between MS and psoriasis

An association was found between multiple sclerosis (MS) and psoriasis in a large, urban, single-center population in the United States.Why this matters

  • Autoimmune diseases such as celiac disease and MS have been reported in patients with psoriasis.
  • Findings regarding the link between MS and psoriasis have been conflicting.

Study design

  • Authors searched the Northwestern Medicine Enterprise Data Warehouse, which contains data for more than 4 million patients, for patients who had a first in-person clinic encounter between January 2001 and December 2014 with a diagnosis of psoriasis and/or MS.
  • A control group consisted of people seen during the same period who did not have a diagnosis of psoriasis and/or MS.
  • Funding: None.

Key results

  • After adjusting for confounding variables of sex, age, psoriatic arthritis, and TNF-α agent exposure, significant association was found between psoriasis and MS (OR, 1.521; P=.04).

Limitations

  • It was not possible to verify diagnoses and drug exposure outside of the data.
  • Other factors not included in this study, such as genetic aberrations and environmental factors, play a role in the etiology of autoimmune diseases.
