No studies have employed the EuroQoL (EQ-5D) questionnaire to assess health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in pemphigus patients, to date.

Pemphigus is a group of rare life-threatening cutaneous autoimmune diseases, presenting mainly as two subtypes including pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and pemphigus foliaceus (PF). Inherited predispositions...
Pemphigus foliaceus is an autoimmune bullous disease with autoantibodies against desmoglein 1. Case reports of pemphigus after surgery have also been described, which may simulate an infection of the ...
Pemphigus is an autoimmune blistering disease with pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and foliaceus (PF) as the two major histological subtypes. Associations with HLA molecules have been suggested, but specific ...
Pemphigus herpetiformis (PH) is a rare subtype of pemphigus combining clinical features of dermatitis herpetiformis and the immunopathologic characteristics of pemphigus. We aimed to analyze the epide...
Hailey-Hailey disease (familial benign chronic pemphigus) is a genodermatosis with a typical clinical presentation of macerated plaques involving intertriginous areas of the body and affects multiple ...
Pemphigus is severe antigen derived autoimmune bullous skin disorder, the word pemphigus is derived from the Greek word" pemphix " which means blister . Two main clinical variants are know...
This study is being conducted to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), immunogenicity, and effects on pemphigus disease activity markers of intra...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether KC706 is effective in the prevention and healing of blisters in patients with pemphigus vulgaris, while the patient remains on stable dose...
The purpose of the study is to find out about the effectiveness and the safety of an investigational drug called etanercept (Enbrel) to treat pemphigus vulgaris. Pemphigus vulgaris is a po...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of PI-0824 in patients with Pemphigus vulgaris is safe.
A desmosomal cadherin that is an autoantigen in the acquired skin disorder PEMPHIGUS FOLIACEUS.
Separation of the prickle cells of the stratum spinosum of the epidermis, resulting in atrophy of the prickle cell layer. It is seen in diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris (see PEMPHIGUS) and DARIER DISEASE.
A desmosomal cadherin that is an autoantigen in the acquired skin disorder PEMPHIGUS VULGARIS.
An autosomal dominantly inherited skin disorder characterized by recurrent eruptions of vesicles and BULLAE mainly on the neck, axillae, and groin. Mutations in the ATP2C1 gene (encoding the secretory pathway Ca2++/Mn2++ ATPase 1 (SPCA1)) cause this disease. It is clinically and histologically similar to DARIER DISEASE - both have abnormal, unstable DESMOSOMES between KERATINOCYTES and defective CALCIUM-TRANSPORTING ATPASES. It is unrelated to PEMPHIGUS VULGARIS though it closely resembles that disease.
A group of D-related human leukocyte antigens that are polymorphic glycoproteins found on lymphoid cells. They consist of alpha and beta chains and their inheritance differs from that of the DQ and DP antigens; their presence seems to be associated with certain skin diseases like pemphigus vulgaris, dermatitis herpetiformis, and type I diabetes.
