Severe psoriasis has been demonstrated to be associated with decreased endothelial function and an increase risk of future coronary events. Although systemic therapy with immunomodulatory agents has been shown to improve psoriatic symptoms, its effects on systemic inflammation and endothelial function are unknown.
In this study we want to assess the cardiovascular risks factors, endothelial dysfunction and inflammatory markers before and after treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis with an FDA-approved biologic agent, adalimumab (Humira).

Experimental: Adalimumab 40mg
Adalimumab 40 MG/0.8 ML Subcutaneous Solution [HUMIRA] Dose administered every other week for 6 months

- Percentage Change in Endothelial Function Compared to Baseline. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Percentage change in endothelial function between baseline visit and end of treatment, 6 months. Endothelial function was measured by percent change in brachial artery diameter after flow mediated dilation (FMD%).
- Changes in IL-6 Profile Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months ]IL6 average concentration in pg/ml at Baseline compared to end of treatment, 6 months.
- Changes in Adiponectin Profile Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]Adiponectin concentration in pg/ml measured at Baseline and end of treatment, 6 months.
