Registries as a real-world cohort studies that are useful and necessary in the pyramid of evidence

M.A. Descalzo, P. Dávila-Seijo
Egeberg et al1 enriched us by describing the limitations of registries in psoriasis, but focusing their critical perspective on a misguided outcome measure such as “drug survival”. We agree that clinicians and researchers should be cautious when using that proxy measure.2,3However, the frequent use of this poor outcome should not cast doubts over all the capabilities of registries.
