Janssen Initiates First-of-its-Kind Clinical Study to Bridge Critical Gaps in Care for People of Color with Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis
HORSHAM, PENNSYLVANIA, March 22, 2022 – Psoriasis (PsO) can take a physical, psychological, and emotional toll on the more than 8 million Americans living with the disease; and for people of color, there are additional challenges due to limited medical research and education, as well as underrepresentation in clinical studies.1,2,3 This has led to a lack of data and barriers to optimal care for diverse patient populations.2 PsO may also present with less noticeable skin reddening on darker skin tones, which can make it harder for healthcare providers to identify and lead to misdiagnoses in people of color.
