What is PsA?
PsA is a type of inflammatory arthritis which affects approximately a quarter of the population. It is a heterogeneous disorder associated with disability, skin disease, joint damage and in severe cases, premature mortality. PsA is irreversible and progressive, and the process of joint damage begins immediately.1
Up to 41% of patients with psoriasis develop PsA, which in turn can lead to severely impaired physical functioning, ability to work and quality of life.2–7
