Information about the use of retinoids in the treatment of psoriasis.

Retinoids are a class of Vitamin-A derivatives, some of which show antipsoriatic activity in topical or oral (systemic) forms. Do not confuse these drugs with “normal,” dietary Vitamin A, which can be deadly in large doses. Retinoids are not Vitamin A, and there is little evidence that taking massive quantities of Vitamin A will have any effect on psoriasis.

The NPF and many online pharmacology resources have so much good, accessible, information on these drugs (see below) that I will leave writing my own summary until a later date.
