Abstract: NB-UVB Phototherapy is one of the most commontreatments administrated by dermatologists for psoriasis patients.Although in general, the treatment results in improving thecondition, it also can worsen it. If a model can predict thetreatment response before hand, the dermatologists can adjustthe treatment accordingly. In this paper, we use data miningtechniques and conduct four experiments. The best performanceof all four experiments was obtained by the stacked classifiermade of hyper parameter tuned Random Forest, kSVM and ANNbase learners, learned using L1-Regularized Logistic Regressionsuper learner.
