Future treatments for psoriasis
Although psoriasis is a serious and compromising issue for millions of Americans, not a great deal is known regarding how it is contracted. Originally in the 60s and 70s there was ground to cover due to the discovery of the immune system's role, which led to various forms of treatments. Some of these included, corticosteroids, cyclosporine and methotrexate. Afterward, however, there wasn't much medical progress made. While there is some opportunity for this, there is always room for more.

Botox … really?
Time Out Dubai
As extreme beauty treatments get more and more outrageous, what are people really prepared to do to change the way they look, and what results do they ultimately want to achieve?
