Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
this case control study will measure plasma level of interleukin 38 in 4 groups of 24 subject, group one will have psoriatic patients, group 2 will have psoriatic patients with metabolic syndrome, group three will have patients with metabolic syndrome only, and group 4 will have healthy control subjects.
: Group 1 (Psoriasis only)
contains 24 psoriatic patients, Psoriasis Area Severity Index will be measured, also waist circumference, body mass index, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and fasting lipid profile and finally: plasma level of interleukin 38
: Group 2 (Psoriasis and metabolic syndrome)
contains 24 psoriatic patients with metabolic syndrome. Psoriasis Area Severity Index will be measured metabolic syndrome is diagnosed after measuring waist circumference, body mass index, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and fasting lipid profile finally: plasma level of interleukin 38
: Group 3 (Metabolic syndrome only)
contains 24 patients with metabolic syndrome only. full dermatological examination to exclude psoriasis and other inflammatory skin disorders metabolic syndrome is diagnosed after measuring waist circumference, body mass index, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and fasting lipid profile finally: plasma level of interleukin 38
: Group 4 (Healthy Controls)
contains 24 healthy control subjects full dermatological examination to exclude psoriasis and other inflammatory skin disorders metabolic syndrome is excluded after measuring waist circumference, body mass index, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose and fasting lipid profile finally: plasma level of interleukin 38
Diagnostic Test: - measure plasma level of interleukin 38 by ELISA kit
draw 5 ml of venous blood into EDTA tubes and centrifuged then plasma is separated for test
