Psoriasis Stratification to Optimise Relevant Therapy (PSORT)
Our group at the St John’s Institute of Dermatology is actively involved in research contributing to PSORT. PSORT is a consortium of leading dermatologists, research groups, health economists, industry partners and psoriasis patients aiming to use existing knowledge, new research and state of the art investigative tools to develop clinical tests to help direct personalised treatments for psoriasis. A number of psoriasis projects, which participants in APRICOT may also be involved in, are ongoing. More information about this research can be found here: PSORT
