Introduction
Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PSA) are chronic, inflammatory, systemic diseases characterized by metabolic abnormalities, including an increased cardiovascular risk and an oxidative imbalance. This study assessed blood parameters of lipid metabolism and markers of oxidative stress in patients with psoriasis and PSA.

Material and methods
The study included 93 patients with psoriasis (31 patients with PSA and psoriasis, 62 patients with psoriasis vulgaris), and 60 healthy, age-matched controls. Serum concentrations of the glucose and the following lipid metabolism parameters were measured: triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low-density lipoproteins (LDL), very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), high-density lipoproteins (HDL), and apolipoproteins A and B (ApoA, ApoB). Oxidative status was determined as serum concentrations of ox-LDL/MDA Adduct. The Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) was used to determine disease severity.

Results
Among the three studied groups, controls had the highest HDL concentration (p < 0.001), patients with PSA had the highest ApoB concentration (p < 0.05), ApoA : ApoB ratio (p < 0.05), ox-LDL/MDA adduct concentration (p < 0.001), and TC: HDL and LDL : HDL ratios (accordingly p < 0.05, p < 0.01). In patients with psoriasis or PSA, oxidative status correlated positively with TC and ApoB concentrations.

Conclusions
In line with previous research, among patients with psoriasis and PSA, we found lipid metabolism abnormalities and an oxidative imbalance, which might be due to chronic inflammation in these conditions. Effective treatment of patients with psoriasis or PSA could reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
