Abstract

A cross-sectional study was performed on 48 psoriasis Vietnamese patients treated with metformin as an add-on for methotrexate and 48 psoriasis patients treated methotrexate alone. The mean PASI scores were 5.25 ± 5.72. Total QOL scores had a slight difference between patients treated metformin combined with methotrexate and methotrexate alone (62.32 ± 18.1 vs 60.91 ± 19.63). Combined therapy with metformin and methotrexate contributes to significantly improve the quality of life for patients with psoriasis.
