Psoriasis research funding sets new record

Research funding for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis through the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) set a new record in 2009. Total funding for the year was $16 million. The total includes $13 million in base funding plus $3 million in funding from the Stimulus Bill.

By way of comparison, in 2005, the year Psoriasis Cure Now was founded, the budget was just $6 million.


This is good news for people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, and their loved ones! You can read more about the record psoriasis research budget here.

Model CariDee English suffers severe psoriasis flare

Model CariDee English has come forward to reveal a severe psoriasis flare that she has been battling recently.

The link includes photos of her during her flare. There had been media reports that she had been on Raptiva, which was pulled from the market last year after several patients on it died after activation of a rare virus. Her loss of Raptiva may have played a role in this flare (that's theory, not established fact).

We appreciate her sharing those pictures publicly, and for the positive awareness it will bring.

Happy Birthday to us ;)

Psoriasis Cure Now launched five years ago today. Rather than a big celebration, what we will do on this 5th anniversary is this: recommit ourselves to our original vision, which was to bring real urgency to the battles that people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are engaged in.

We continue to believe that the single most important factor that will dictate how people with psoriasis will be doing 10 and 20 years from now is how much research is conducted today, and next year. Unfortunately, psoriasis research remains underfunded.

Of course, it's our birthday, so we have a wish list. If you care about curing psoriasis or helping someone with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, please take a moment right now to do one or more of the items on this list:

* Write to Congress about psoriasis research.
* Join Psoriasis.Name, and connect with others who care about these issues.
* Add your name to our psoriasis volunteer list, as we have ways you can help no matter where you live.
* Follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for your continued support and stay tuned for Big Things in 2010!
