  4. In order to achieve sustained remission in patients with psoriasis is required to carry out the correction of exogenous and endogenous trigger factors in order to minimize their impact.
  5. Materials socio-hygienic monitoring the incidence of psoriasis Zaporozhye region should be used to develop management solutions for the protection of air and water pollution from anthropogenic
