Introduction
In recent years, the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR), mean platelet volume (MPV) and C reactive protein (CRP) have been shown to be important indicators of systemic inflammation. Studies have shown that NLR, PLR, MPV and CRP are higher in psoriasis patients than in the control group.

Aim
To investigate the NLR, PLR, MPV and serum CRP levels in patients who were treated with biological agents for psoriasis.

Material and methods
In our study, 75 patients who were followed up and had a diagnosis of psoriasis vulgaris and took a biological agent therapy between January 2014 and December 2017 in the Dermatology Clinic of the Dicle University Medical Faculty Hospital were evaluated before treatment, and 3 and 6 months after treatment.

Results
Neutrophil count, lymphocyte count, thrombocyte count, NLR, PLR, MPV and CRP values before the biological agent treatment were statistically higher than the values at 3 and 6 months of treatment. There was no statistically significant difference between pre-treatment neutrophil, lymphocyte, leukocyte, platelet, NLR, PLR, MPV, CRP values and values at 3 and 6 months after treatment when we compared four different biological agents.

Conclusions
It was seen that NLR, PLR, MPV and CRP values decreased independently of the type of the biological agent used in our study. Therefore, we think that these parameters can be used to evaluate the effects of biological agent treatment on systemic inflammation in psoriasis patients and to monitor the course of the disease.
