To the benefit of millions of people living with uncontrolled psoriasis worldwide, a global consortium of more than 100 physician leaders in dermatology led by the International Psoriasis Council (IPC) has developed a simplified method used to classify psoriasis severity and determine the appropriate course of treatment.

Bruce Strober, MD, PhD, assistant clinical professor at Yale University, head of Central Connecticut Dermatology Research and secretary-treasurer of the IPC Board of Directors, is the lead author on a consensus paper published recently in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, which details the re-categorization of psoriasis severity initiative.
