Psoriasis is an incurable, chronic skin disorder with considerable impact on the quality of life. No drugs are available for treating the disease. Clarifying the progression, exploring the risk factors affecting progression, and finding effective treatments with few side-effects and low recurrence rates is critical. This protocol describes a future study that will analyze psoriasis vulgaris progression risk factors and trends, establish a multicenter clinical registration platform, evaluate clinical evidence for Chinese Medicine (CM) intervention for psoriasis, and evaluate therapeutic effectiveness and recurrence rate advantages of CM.
