Psoriasis puzzle solved?

Professor Ole-Jan Iversen at NTNU believes that he has discovered the protein that is the cause of the chronic inflammation disease known as psoriasis. This protein bears the name of Pso p27, and Iversen has found a clear link between the production of Pso p27 and psoriasis activity in the body. The next step is to identify the gene that produces the protein, which Iversen hopes to do in the course of the coming year.
