Psoriasis Awareness Month 2023
As a leading clinical research organization, we at Accellacare join hands with the global community in recognizing Psoriasis Awareness Month. This annual observance offers us an important opportunity to raise awareness, dispel misconceptions, and inspire collective action against psoriasis, a chronic, immune-mediated disease affecting millions worldwide.
Often misconstrued as a mere 'skin condition', Psoriasis extends far beyond the physical manifestations that typically mark its presence. It's an immune-mediated disease, meaning that the immune system, responsible for protecting us from infections and diseases, mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells. This leads to the rapid buildup of skin cells and the tell-tale psoriasis plaques.The battle with Psoriasis isn't limited to skin—it may also include joint pain, fatigue, and an increased risk for other serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and depression. The stigma associated with visible psoriasis symptoms often exacerbates emotional and psychological distress, making psoriasis a truly multidimensional disease.
At Accellacare we are dedicated to making strides in Psoriasis research. Our scientists and clinicians work tirelessly to unravel the complex mechanisms of psoriasis, and we consistently engage in clinical trials aiming to develop new treatments. The progress we have achieved thus far is largely attributed to the brave individuals living with psoriasis who participate in our studies. Psoriasis Awareness Month calls for collective action.
Here are ways you can contribute:
- Educate Yourself and Others: Knowledge is the first step towards empathy and understanding. Learn about psoriasis and share this information with others to combat stigma and misinformation.
- Share Your Story: If you live with psoriasis, consider sharing your story. Your experiences can inspire others, comfort those who feel alone in their journey, and motivate action.
- Support Research: Participation in clinical trials or contributing to research funding can significantly advance our understanding of psoriasis. Each contribution brings us closer to finding more effective treatments, and ultimately, a cure.
- Spread the Word: Use the hashtag #PsoriasisAwarenessMonth2023 to join the global conversation. The more awareness we raise, the more support we can provide for those affected.
We at Accellacare salute the courage of everyone impacted by psoriasis. Your resilience inspires our continued work in this field. Let's stand together this Psoriasis Awareness Month, amplifying our voices to ensure that no one fights psoriasis alone. We remain hopeful that our collective efforts will pave the way towards a psoriasis-free world.
