Background: Psoriasis, a common inflammatory disease, is associated with atherosclerotic vascular diseases, including stroke, myocardial infarction, and impaired microcirculations, among which circulating microparticles play an important role. In severe psoriasis, there are increased endothelial- and platelet- microparticles that are reduced by TNF-α blockers in parallel with clinical improvement. However, whether Stelara(ustekinumab) treatment would decrease the level of microparticles remains unknown.
Objective: The investigators will evaluate the level of microparticles among normal control, severe psoriasis before and 4 months after ustekinumab treatment.

|Official Title:||The Difference of Circulating Endothelial-derived and Platelet-derived Microparticles in Patients With Psoriasis Successfully Treated With Stelara(Ustekinumab)|

50 patients with severe psoriasis who received Stelara(ustekinumab) at 0 and 1 month. The investigators check microparticles level at baseline and 4 months later.
50 patients without psoriasis: the microparticles are checked at baseline.
50 patients with severe psoriasis received ustekinumab 45mg at 0 and 1 month. There were 50 healthy controls. The levels of circulating CD31 and CD41a positive microparticles are measured. In patients with psoriasis, the investigators measure microparticles in the baseline and 4 months after ustekinumab. For control group, the investigators measure microparticles in the baseline.
Other Name: Stelara
- The difference of CD41a and CD31 positive microparticles in patients with severe psoriasis before and after ustekinumab treatment. [ Time Frame: The levels of CD41a and CD31 positive microparticles are checked in patients with psoriasis before and 4 months after ustekinumab. ]
- The difference of CD41a and CD31 positive microparticles between normal control and patients with severe psoriasis [ Time Frame: Patients with severe psoriasis: microparticles are checked at baseline. Control group: microparticles are checked at baseline. ]
