Someone posted on the American forum a recent article on statins and psoriasis. This is one paragraph from that article:
"In addition to their lipid lowering effects, statins have many anti-inflammatory immunomodulator properties. Based on these properties it seems biologically plausible that statins could potentially decrease psoriasis disease activity. However, this remains only speculation because there has been only one pilot study showing modest effect of statins on psoriatic disease. Nevertheless, considering the safety and cost-effectiveness of statins, we feel that it is worth investigating if statins can play a dual role in psoriasis by treating the increased atherosclerotic disease burden in these patients through their lipid lowering effects and by decreasing psoriatic disease activity through their anti-inflammatory immunomodulatory properties"
Anyone here taking statins? Did you notice an effect on your psoriasis?
