The International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) organized the second World Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Conference in Stockholm, Sweden, in June 2009. The 2009 collaborative multidisciplinary meeting attracted nearly 1000 clinicians and investigators from dermatology, rheumatology, basic science, and industry, as well as patients and leaders of patient organizations, from 68 countries. The major theme of the meeting was "Psoriasis - Skin and Beyond," and the primary aim was to highlight the significant effects of psoriasis and related comorbidities on patient function and quality of life. The annual meeting of GRAPPA (Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis) was held concurrently, and several GRAPPA members attended both meetings. Key presentations at IFPA that GRAPPA members believed were highlights of that meeting are summarized here.
