Register now: Criteria for controls

The National Psoriasis Victor Henschel BioBank is collecting DNA from two groups of people: those who have psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis (cases), and those who do not (controls).

Control participants, people who have neither disease, must:

  • Be age 18 or older
  • Be the only person in their immediate family participating in the BioBank
  • Have no personal history of psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis
  • Have no personal history of several other autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, including Crohn's disease, lupus, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, alopecia areata, atopic dermatitis, ulcerative colitis and type 1 diabetes (juvenile onset)
