Mark Bishop: There's no part of your body that is immune to being attacked by the psoriasis. Dr. Dean Edell: And when it attacks, it causes patches of itchy, scaly and sometimes, inflamed skin. Dr. Alan Menter: The patches themselves can range from dime size to huge, big, large patches. Dr. Dean Edell: There is no cure for psoriasis and for Mark, lotions and creams didn't work. Mark Bishop: You somewhat do a lot of sole searching and thinking in your life when you have psoriases, wondering why me? Why was I picked to have something that there is no cure for? Dr. Dean Edell: But he may have found the next best thing to a cure, a new class of drugs called biologic response agents. Dr. Jerri Johnson: It's an enormous breakthrough, because what we have these drugs that are now targeted specifically, to the problems in the skin with psoriases without affecting the normal cells. Dr. Dean Edell: Biologics helped clear up Mark’s skin and more. Mark Bishop: The quality of life just became wonderful. It's kind of life being reborn again, and a new body without psoriases. Dr. Dean Edell: This year, he is looking forward to summer. I am Dr. Dean Edell.
