Amerikan Tıp Dergisinin son sayılarından birinden alıntıladığım aşağıdaki özet yazıda sedef hastalığı ile sigara arasındaki yakın ilişki tanımlanıyor.

‘’’In this prospective analysis, current and past smoking, and cumulative measures of smoking were associated with the incidence of psoriasis,” the study authors write. “The risk was graded and increased with the duration, intensity, and pack-years of smoking. Furthermore, the risk of incident psoriasis decreased with increasing years of smoking cessation reaching nearly that of never smokers 20 years after cessation.”Limitations of the study include lack of clinical confirmation of the nurses’ self-reported physician-diagnosis of psoriasis, restriction to registered nurses, and generalizability limited to white women with no history of psoriasis.”Smoking cessation may be a potentially important target for the prevention and management of psoriasis,” the study authors conclude.The National Institutes of Health and the Nurses’ Health Study II grant supported this study.Am J Med. 2007;120:953-959.’’’’
