Psoriasis is a common and remitting chronic skin disease, which is generally considered to be an autoimmune disorder, which is influenced by genetic, psychosomatic, environmental and bacteriological factors. Psoriasis is not a contagious disease and it’s definitive diagnosis can be achieved through skin biopsy.
Across the world, people suffering from this disease can find different drugs. However, the effectiveness achieved by Cuban doctors in this field is among the most advanced.
One of the most effective treatments for psoriasis is Coriodermina, a water soluble topical gel developed from the human placenta by Dr. Carlos Miyares Cao. The treatments success rate in complete cleansing of the lesions is 84.6%; noticeable improvements is 8.5%; minimum improvement rate is 5% and only a small 1.9% does not show improvements. Coriodermina is applied directly to the psoriatic lesions and it is then absorbed by the skin layers. The effectiveness of Coriodermina depends on the age of patient; the percentage of affected area; the length of time patient has suffered from psoriasis and the correct application of treatment.
The treatment with Coriodermina has been developed since the 90’s in the Centro de Histoterapia Placentaria in Havana. It has no side effects and can be used on children, the elderly, pregnant women and during breastfeeding
