For many living with psoriasis, stress can be an all-too familiar trigger. However, scientists have yet to pinpoint how and why stress impacts psoriasis. Dr. Theoharis Theoharides is hoping to change that.
Theoharides received a two-year, $200,000 National Psoriasis Foundation Translational Grant to study how stress contributes to psoriasis, and how molecules derived from chamomile might interrupt this psoriasis-stress connection.
In people with psoriasis, stress initiates a chain of reactions. Stress hormone is released, which triggers the immune system to release tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha). TNF-alpha leads to inflammation, and too much of it can cause psoriasis.
While biologic drugs successfully target TNF-alpha and have relieved the symptoms of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for many, Theoharides said his team wanted to take a different approach. His team began looking at natural molecules and found that a molecule in chamomile could prevent cells from releasing TNF-alpha in the first place.
His team hopes their work will lead to an ointment that could be applied to the skin to prevent psoriasis flares and in turn, prevent the development of psoriatic arthritis.
