In a new study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (JAAD), researchers from IHE report a high comorbidity burden among Swedish people with the rare and severe skin disease generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP). GPP was associated with a higher occurrence of several conditions (e.g. Crohn’s disease, diabetes type 2, and peptic ulcer disease) compared to both people from the general population and people with the more common skin condition psoriasis vulgaris.
In a new collaborative study almost 1600 people living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) from the Swedish Parkinson’s Disease Registry (PARKreg) in the Scania region of Sweden were matched to the general population. Time to dementia was analyzed and people living with PD were found to have a 3.7 times higher risk of developing dementia compared to the general population. More progressed PD further increase this risk.
