Psoriasis Arthritis: More than a skin disease

We are delighted to present our PARTNER Fellows 2017

Psoriasis Arthritis (PsA) are associated with metabolic disorders including obesity, type II diabetes mellitus, increased lipids levels in the blood, hypertension, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. It is still unclear if metabolic disturbances in PsA have a role in the severity of disease and extent of damage.

Dr. Alla Alexeevna Ishchenko will investigate the impact of metabolic disorders in PsA within her fellowship project with Prof. Rik Lories at Skeletal Biology and Engineering Research Center of University of Leuven (Belgium). Since her graduation in medicine she is highly motivated to force the knowledge in systemic and inflammatory rheumatism.
