Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious, inflammatory disease of the skin that affects approximately one in every fifty adults. Massey University is conducting an Auckland-based intervention trial that will determine whether vitamin D supplements are an effective treatment for psoriasis. The research is part of a PhD in Human Nutrition.

Data collection is now complete. A summary of the results will be posted here soon.
