Psoriasis in Adolescents
The PIA cohort consists of 319 young DNBC participants
The ‘Psoriasis in Adolescents’ (PIA) cohort consists of adolescents with psoriasis, as well as genetically predisposed and non-predisposed adolescents without psoriasis, all members of the Danish National Birth Cohort.
Collected information includes clinical characteristics of psoriasis, blood samples for cardiovascular/ metabolic risk factors and genetic analyses, microbiological swabs and data on physical and mental health.
The cohort is limited by the relatively small size; however, the psoriasis status is clinically confirmed.
