Psoriasis (Yasuyuki Fujita, Assistant Professor)

The Special Clinic for Psoriasis of the Hokkaido University Department of Dermatology is open on Thursday afternoons. The patients are mainly those for whom it’s desirable to give oral therapies of biologics, cyclosporin and methotrexate, in addition to the therapies of the UV Outpatient Clinic. A six-story outpatient building was constructed in 2013, and the new Outpatient Chemotherapy Center, where infliximab (Remicade®) is administered intravenously, is comfortable and beautiful. Even though psoriasis is seldom life-threatening, it’s a disease whose chronic conditions— persistent itchiness and scaling, joint pain, abnormal appearance—significantly affect the patient’s quality of life. I’m determined to provide medical care and to improve the conditions of patients, including the environment of the clinic. It’s possible to make appointments directly through the University Hospital’s Medical Liaison Center. If you should find any intractable cases of psoriasis at your institution, please feel free to inquire with our clinic.
