BACKGROUND: Patients with psoriasis have an increased risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD). The molecular mechanisms behind this connection are not fully understood, but the involvement of neutrophils have drawn attention as a shared inflammatory factor.

METHODS: RNA sequencing using the Illumina platform was performed on blood from 38 patients with moderate to severe psoriasis; approximately half had prior CVD. The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) was obtained from blood samples. Subclinical atherosclerosis was assessed by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography and ultrasound imaging. Transcriptomic analysis for differential expression and functional enrichment were performed, followed by correlation analyses of differentially expressed genes (DEGs), NLR and subclinical measurers of CVD.

RESULTS: 291 genes were differentially expressed between patients with psoriasis with and without CVD. These included 208 upregulated and 83 downregulated DEGs. Neutrophil degranulation was identified as the most significant process related to the upregulated DEGs. Genes for the neutrophil-associated markers MPO, MMP9, LCN2, CEACAM1, CEACAM6 and CEACAM8 were identified as being of special interest and their mRNA levels correlated with NLR, high-sensitive C-reactive protein and markers of subclinical CVD.

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with psoriasis and CVD had an increased expression of genes related to neutrophil degranulation in their blood transcriptome compared with patients with psoriasis without CVD. NLR may be a potential biomarker of subclinical CVD in psoriasis.
