"No child should have to go through what Alyssa and I, and millions of others have experienced," said Rimes. "This research can help bring an end to the physical and emotional pain caused by psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis."

"Over the past decade, the National Institutes of Health has spent less than $1 per person with psoriasis per year," said Randy Beranek, president and CEO of the National Psoriasis Foundation. "It's important Congress understand that psoriasis is a serious disease that needs a cure."

Total direct and indirect health care costs of psoriasis for patients are calculated at $11.25 billion annually with work loss accounting for 40 percent of the cost burden. More than half of people with psoriasis miss an average of 26 days of work per year due to complications from the disease.

Psoriasis usually first strikes between ages 15 to 25 and lasts a lifetime; over time some treatments that were working may stop being effective. The same treatments do not work for every patient and many can have serious adverse side effects that prevent people from functioning normally.
