Advancements in psoriasis are persistent, even as biologics have altered the way numerous patients with direct to chronic illness are cured. In this article, we highlight particular advancements and discoveries in psoriasis research related with the study of disease transmission/clinical research, genetics and immunology.

Open Access literature plays a key part in demonstrating the information and recent advancements worldwide. Clinical Dermatology Research Journal is a peer-reviewed open access journal, which is dedicated to publish articles over the globe on clinical and experimental studies in the field of dermatology and related fields such as trichology, cosmetology, plastic surgery, etc. [68-89]. Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology Research gives information on most recent therapeutics techniques, for example, Laser tattoo expulsion, Dermoscopy, Laser skin reemerging, etc. and furthermore numerous congress meet like Vitiligo and Skincare Physicians Meeting where a abstract entitled Development of a non-invasive skin diagnostic test for managing Vitiligo treatment was Pieter Spee of Estonia, outlined about the improvement of new symptomatic method for analysis and treatment of vitiligo [90-113].
