MicroRNA may play an important role in psoriasis and eczema. MicroRNA are small RNA molecules that regulate gene expression, and by acting on many different proteins and different cellular mechanisms in skin and immune cells these small RNA molecules may be an important factor in the development of disease. Therapies based on microRNA might therefore in the future become more effective than medicines targeted at individual proteins. News-Medical.net. 07/12/07. (Also see: Psoriasis)
