Genetic markers for psoriatic arthritis in patients with psoriasis. Part I: non-HLA genes
Vestnik Dermatologii i Venerologii
Psoriatic arthritis often develops in patients with psoriasis and can lead to joint deformity, stiffness, dysfunction, and disability. Psoriatic arthritis is a polygenic disease. and the issue of personalizing the prognosis of its development can only be resolved taking into account the variability of plenty genomic loci associated with the development of the disease. The personification of the prognosis of the disease can be solved taking into account the variability of the set of genomic loci
... with which its development is associated. The review examines genomic polymorphisms associated with the development of psoriatic arthritis not psoriasis, except of HLA polymorphisms. Genome regions containing polymorphisms, allelic variants of which are associated both with the development of psoriatic arthritis and reducing the likelihood of its occurrence, are described. It has been reported that the predisposition to the development of psoriatic arthritis in patients with psoriasis is determined by genes encoding proteins involved in inflammation and bone metabolism.
