Psoriatic patients are at increased risk for metabolic disorders, imposing additional burdens on healthcare resources. Although clinically distinct, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and psoriasis are significantly associated (with published studies yielding ORs ≈1.5). Since the incidence of T2D is rapidly increasing in the USA, it is crucial to understand how its biological mechanisms relate to psoriasis. To investigate the genetic similarities and differences between psoriasis and T2D, we conducted a large-scale trans-disease meta-analysis incorporating results from previous association studies for psoriasis (11,024 cases, 16,...

Over a third of the world population is obese and thus at risk for Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). T2DM is associated with a plethora of skin diseases, such as impaired wound healing, dry and itchy skin, and Psoriasis. Yet, it remains unresolved whether diabetic skin complications are a direct consequence of impaired insulin/IGF-1 signaling (IIS) in the skin or occurs secondarily in response to metabolic alterations. The skin epidermis provides a structural and innate immune barrier that protects the organism from outside challenges and water loss.

Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disease that associatated with comorbidities including type 2 diabetes. Metformin is utilized as a first-line antidiabetic agent for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Although metformin reportedly exhibits anti-inflammatory effects in various cells, the mechanism in the skin has not been determined. To reveal this, we examined whether metformin treatment affected the development of psoriasis in imiquimod (IMQ) -induced mouse psoriasis model. Oral treatment of metformin (20 mg/kg, daily) showed a significant decrease in ear swelling and epidermal hyperplasia.
