Univ.-Prof. Dr.med.univ. Peter Wolf

Peter WOLF is a dermatologist with a long-standing expertise in inflammatory skin conditions and clinical and experimental photoimmunobiology. He has explored the cellular mechanisms of psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) photo(chemo)therapy and discovered that the modulation of inflammatory response by PUVA, e.g. down-regulation of proinflammatory cytokines, induction of regulatory T cells (Tregs), and other means of immune suppression, is crucial for its well established therapeutic effects. His group currently investigates the pathogenic involvement of lipoprotein metabolism in psoriasis and molecular pathways of the long-term response to photo(chemo)therapy, in order to open-up new avenues for the treatment of Psoriasis.
