Özet

Background: Psoriasis is an autoimmune, inflammatory, and chronic disease. Recent studies have evaluated serum endocan and nesfatin-1 levels in patients with inflammatory disorders. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an inflammatory marker currently used in many diseases. The aim of the present study was to evaluate NLR, serum endocan, and nesfatin-1 levels in psoriasis vulgaris before and after narrow-band ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy treatment and compared to healthy controls.
