Title: Psoriasis SCID-mouse model.
Authors: Pfeffer, et al.

Animal models of psoriasis have not been able to completely reproduce
the disease. The authors noted that grafting the skin of psoriatic
patients onto mice with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID)
was the first to meet the criteria of psoriasis model.
In the last 10 years, this psoriasis SCID-mouse model had allowed
experiments on the pathogenesis or development of the disease,
as well as testing of drugs for psoriasis.
