Recent research indicates that psoriasis is likely to be a disorder of the immune system, causes activity by T cells (white blood).These T cells trigger the inflammation and excessive skin cell reproduction seen in people with psoriasis.
The immune system of the psoriasis patient start sending false signals. The skin then believes that it has been under attack and needs to rapidly regenerate in order to heal faster. One of the messengers often used by T cells is the TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) which is one of the first cytokines (mechanism by which cells communicate with one another) that appear during an inflammatory response. Unfortunate is the fact that T Cells usually call more T cells to help them control the false attack, causing the snow ball effect, spreading the psoriasis to other parts of skin in body.
The basic defect lies within the skin cells themselves. A delicate balance between two internal control compounds: cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) and cGMP (cyclic gaunosine monophosphate), which are second messengers that carry signals from the cell surface to proteins within the cell, and controls the rate at which cells divide. Increases in cyclic GMP are associated with increased cell proliferation. Conversely, increased levels of cyclic AMP are associated with enhanced cell maturation and decreased cell proliferation. The investigation of these second messengers (cAMP, cGMP) may help to provide a clearer understanding of the physiology and pathology of psoriasis disease state (both decreased cAMP and increased cGMP have been measured in the skin of individuals with psoriasis).
======= In precise experimental conditions of frequency and duration of exposure, the cAMP-dependent protein kinase ( an enzyme that modifies other proteins by chemically adding phosphate groups to them, regulating the majority of cellular pathways, especially those involved in the transmission of signals within the cell) of human lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell involved in the human body's immune system) has been inhibited by electromagnetic waves.=======
====Rebalancing the cyclic AMP is a prime electromagnetic-therapeutic goal.====
......If anybody interested I will speak about the electromagnetic-therapy
