Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a highly prevalent, chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects children and adults. The pathophysiology of AD is complex and involves skin barrier and immune dysfunction. Many immune cytokine pathways are amplified in AD, including T helper (Th) 2, Th22, Th17 and Th1. Current treatment guidelines recommend topical medications as initial therapy; however, until recentl...
Recent studies have suggested that removing foods from the diet to manage atopic dermatitis (AD), based on positive allergy tests, may lead to immediate allergic reactions on reintroduction of that food.
Cancer is the second cause of death worldwide. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are the most common modalities for the treatment of cancer. Experimental studies have shown that inflammation plays a central role in tumor resistance and the incidence of several side effects following both chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Inflammation resulting from radiotherapy and chemotherapy is responsible for adverse...
Basidiomycetes-X (BDM-X) is a novel edible mushroom recently identified as a new fungi species and is effective against oxidative stress and anti-inflammation associated with immune response. However the effect of BDM-X on atopic dermatitis (AD) has not been elucidated. In this study, we have investigated the effect of BDM-X on AD skin lesions in NC/Nga mouse model. AD-like lesion was induced by t...
Elevated hsa-miR-144-3p levels in umbilical cord serum may lower the threshold for allergen-induced skin inflammation. This gives insight in to possible mechanisms promoting early life atopic dermatitis and highlights the importance of skin barrier protection.
To quantify the prevalence and incidence of different skin injuries, pressure ulcers (PU), skin tears (ST) and incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) in China, and to identify their causes to aid prevention and control.
Systemic medications are often required for severe atopic dermatitis (AD) refractory to topical therapies. Biologic medications are a recent advancement in the field and a comparison to traditional systemic approaches would be beneficial.
Contact dermatitis accounts for 95% of occupational skin disorders. Irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) is often caused by cumulative exposure to weak irritants, accounting for 80% of all cases of contact dermatitis. ICD can co-exist with atopic dermatitis (AD) and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Patients with AD and ACD may have a lower inflammatory threshold for developing ICD. Therefore, it ne...
Serum amyloid A (SAA) is an acute phase protein, which activates immune cells and induces cytokines and chemokine. SAA levels in blood have been reported to be elevated in case of inflammation, infections, neoplasia and tissue injury. In this study, we examined SAA levels in the blood of patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). SAA levels in sera of AD patients, t...
Vesicular hand dermatitis is a type of eczema involving the fingers, hands, and sometimes the feet. It is common in primary care, requiring prompt treatment to prevent chronicity. The cause is often unknown, making the condition challenging to treat. Management consists of avoiding irritants and using emollients and topical corticosteroids.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is one of the most frequent skin diseases. Changes of the keratinocytes functionality play a major role in the development of AD. For example, activation of the Fas (CD95)/FasL (CD178) pathway in AD does not lead to extensive apoptosis in skin. Binding of the Fas receptor to its protein ligand-FasL, which are present on the (AD)-modified keratinocytes, should result in the s...
This study aimed to (i) assess the prevalence of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) at homes, (ii) assess the prevalence of atopic dermatitis and (iii) evaluate the association between ETS exposure and atopic dermatitis status among adolescents.
The diagnostic approaches and therapeutic strategies of atopic dermatitis (AD) are generally inconsistent among physicians and health institutions.
We carried out a meta-analysis to assess whether Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) rs5743708 and Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) rs4986790 polymorphisms are associated with the risk of atopic dermatitis.
, also known as "", has been traditionally used for the management of skin-related diseases such as psoriasis and skin ulcers. The aim of this study was to determine whether and its major component, luteolin 7--glucoside, have a preventive effect on the development of atopic dermatitis in oxazolone-treated BALB/c mice and 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene-treated hairless mice. The epicutaneous applicatio...
Dermatitis is one of the most common illnesses encountered by healthcare providers and the causes are numerous. Contact dermatitis is the form of dermatitis resulting from contact with the environment, and it may be either irritant or allergic in nature. Patch testing has been the gold standard for diagnosis of allergic contact dermatitis since its formal description over 100 years ago by Jadasso...
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is frequently detected in the skin of patients with atopic dermatitis (AD), and involved in the flare of AD. There are some evidence specific strains of S. aureus affect the severity of AD. However, the mechanism of predominant colonization and the aggravation of dermatitis by certain strains of S. aureus in the patients with AD are still unknown.
A novel topical phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitor E6005 shows potential as effective treatment options for atopic dermatitis (AD); however, systemic exposure may cause potentially undesirable adverse reactions. In this study, we evaluated the relationship between the systemic exposure of E6005 and clinical parameters including skin condition and the incidence of AEs in patients with AD.
A new skin protectant with improved adhesion to denuded skin and resistance to wash off has been developed to protect skin from incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) or general loss of skin integrity.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a highly prevalent chronic inflammatory skin disease which is known to be, at least in part, genetically determined. Mutations in CARD14 have been shown to result in various forms of psoriasis and related disorders.
Mold exposure in early life may be associated with development of atopic dermatitis; however, studies of this link are inconclusive and evidence for the underlying mechanism(s) is lacking. This study identified the association between the time of mold exposure and development of atopic dermatitis and investigated the underlying mechanisms.
The risk of prenatal, obstetric and birth complications in mothers with atopic dermatitis (AD), along with treatment use during pregnancy, is unknown.
When evaluating consumer products for safety, one must consider the heterogeneity of the population that might use those products, including the potential for different sensitivity based on factors such as age, gender, and genetics. For both systemic endpoints and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD), quantitative safety evaluations typically include a default 10-fold uncertainty/assessment factor to...
