I have had psoriasis from before my teens and probably always will,I will be 50 this year.Does anyone know what research is being done to find a cure.Is there any light at the end of this tunnel,do we have any hope or is this our lot.

Probably not in my lifetime, there are so many other diseases that are a higher priority than Psoriasis.

I see my Dermatologist on a regular basis and all I get offered are the same old treatments and according to him there isn't anything new coming out in the near future.

We spent millions on sending people into space and on weapons of mass destruction but won't invest in research to cure some common illness's!

No - few hundred years maybe. Not enough money / profit for pharma - do not think likes of Roche or GSK etc are even interested. Thats why we have no new antibiotics,why a lot of "new" products are lifestyle ones, not actually attempting to provide a cure. Just a little something. Have you noticed all off shelf painkillers. Pretty little boxes with same product in it but priced differently. Feminax is essentially a pain killer a pretty box. Makes a lot money drug companies

Roland there are no new treatments!

Since 2001, tried uvb and creams

Its a balance: should auto immune be suppressed or not? Who knows?
