Due to its similarity of skin anatomy and physiology, the pig appears to be a well-suited animal model for preclinical studies of skin analog transplantations. The choice of the location of the skin defect and appropriate postoperative measures are essential for the protection of the transplanted graft. This protocol describes in detail a porcine skin transplantation model including peri- and postoperative measures taken to improve and refine the study outcome.
Nanosecond pulsed electric fields (nsPEFs) showed an inhibitory effect on proliferation of malignant melanoma. In this study, the growth of melanoma were inhibited by changing the systemic immunity .
Little is known about the impact of nutrition on the development of skin structure and function in infants.
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which involves the dramatic reorganization of the cytoskeleton, is a crucial initiating step in tumor invasion and metastasis. Protein 4.1B is a membrane-cytoskeleton cross-linker that plays an important role in tumor progression and metastasis; however, the functional roles of 4.1B in melanoma remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect and underlying mechanism of 4.1B on melanoma cells. Our results demonstrated that 4.1B expression was downreg...
Previous studies regarding cigarette smoking causing a lower risk of melanoma are inconclusive. Here, we re-examined melanoma risk in relation to cigarette smoking in a large, case-control study.
CHILD syndrome (Congenital Hemidysplasia, Ichthyosiform erythroderma, Limb Defects) is a rare X-linked dominant disease. The authors report a 2-month-old patient presenting with typical features of CHILD syndrome that was treated with a topical solution containing cholesterol and lovastatin, with complete clearance of her CHILD nevus. The changes in skin lipid metabolism that explain the CHILD ichthyosiform nevus and their correction through topical application of cholesterol and lovastatin are discussed.
Brain metastasis (BM) is a major complication of different cancers. There is increasing evidence for influence of vascular factors on BM in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It is not known if the same is true for other tumors that might rely on different forms of vasculogenesis. The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate a possible negative association of vascular white matter lesions and vascular risk factors (vasRF) with brain metastases in patients with melanoma.
Autophagy is known as an intracellular clean up system necessary to maintain homeostasis of the skin. Many studies have pointed out the relationship between aging and the inactivation of autophagy function, which suggests that the inactivation of autophagy occurs in aged skin. However, the aging process of the skin is complicated compared with other organs, because the skin is localized at the border between the inside of the body and the environment. Thus, skin aging is strongly affected by environmental f...
Bacteriophage (phage) component of the skin microbiome in patients with psoriasis has not been systematically explored. The purpose of this study is to investigate phage and bacterial components of the skin microbiome in patients with psoriasis and in healthy family controls. Lesional skin swabs of four different locations (elbow, forearm, knee, and scalp) were taken from patients with psoriasis. Healthy skin swabs of matched locations were taken from contralateral non-lesional skin and healthy family contr...
Immunotherapy is a new genre of treatment for patients with advanced cancer. Initially approved for use in metastatic melanoma, immunotherapy has found a significant place in treating non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Clinical trials using several combinations of immunotherapy are underway to help to determine the best treatment for specific patient groups. This article reviews approved uses of immunotherapy for NSCLC, immune-related toxicities, and explores the future direction of this treatment.
The aim of this study was to identify any correlations between microvascular damage, assessed by nailfold videocapillaroscopy and skin impairment, evaluated by three different methods, the modified Rodnan skin score (mRSS), skin high-frequency ultrasound (US) and the plicometer skin test (PST) in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients.
Patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are known to have higher incidence of nonhematological second primary malignancies (SPM) compared to general population. In the MYSEC study on 781 secondary myelofibrosis (SMF) patients, the incidence of SPM after SMF diagnosis resulted 0.98/100 patient-years. When including non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC), the incidence arose to 1.56/100 patient-years. In SMF, JAK inhibitor treatment was associated only with NMSC occurrence. Then, we merged the MYSEC cohort...
To describe a case of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and chorioretinal scarring in a patient with melanoma-associated retinopathy after ipilimumab/nivolumab combination immune therapy for malignant melanoma.
The main surgical treatment for invasive malignant melanoma consists of wide surgical and examination of the sentinel node and in selected cases complete lymph node dissection. The aim of this review is to present data for the optimal surgical management of patients with malignant melanoma.
Split-thickness skin grafting remains a fundamental treatment for patients with deep burns and other traumatic injuries. Unfortunately, the donor site wound that remains after split skin graft (SSG) harvesting may also cause problems for the patient; they can lead to discomfort and scars with a poor cosmetic outcome. Regrafting of the donor site is one of the methods described to improve donor site healing and scarring. In this report, we describe a case of a 26-year-old woman with a self-inflicted chemical...
The Combined Aerobic and Resistance Exercise (CARE) Trial compared different types and doses of exercise performed during breast cancer chemotherapy. Here, we report the longer-term follow-up of patient-reported outcomes, health-related fitness, and exercise behavior at 6, 12, and 24 months postintervention. A multicenter trial in Canada randomized 301 breast cancer patients initiating chemotherapy to thrice weekly, supervised exercise consisting of a standard dose of 25-30 minutes of aerobic exercise (STAN...
We screen ion channels and transporters throughout the genome to identify those required by human melanoma cells but not by normal human melanocytes. We discover that Mucolipin-1 (MCOLN1), which encodes the lysosomal cation channel TRPML1, is preferentially required for the survival and proliferation of melanoma cells. Loss of MCOLN1/TRPML1 function impairs the growth of patient-derived melanomas in culture and in xenografts but does not affect the growth of human melanocytes. TRPML1 expression and macropin...
Approximately 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime; 97% of these cancers will be nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSCs). Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) comprises approximately 80% of NMSCs and most of the remainder are cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). The predominant risk factor for NMSC is exposure to solar UV radiation. Skin type also plays a role, with a higher incidence of NMSCs among fairer-skinned individuals. Immunocompromise can increase the risk. Biopsy of suspicious lesi...
Understanding skin metabolism is important when considering drug discovery and safety assessment. This review compares xenobiotic skin metabolism in ex vivo skin to reconstructed human skin and reconstructed human epidermis models, concentrating on phase I and phase II enzymes. Reports on phase I enzymes are more abundant than for phase II enzymes with mRNA and protein expression far more reported than enzyme activity. Almost all of the xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes detected in human skin are also present...
Primary malignant melanoma is the very rare entity of the central nervous system. It accounts only 1% of all melanoma cases. A 67-year-old patient presented to us with lower back pain radiating to the left lower limb and progressive weakness of both lower limbs. She underwent magnetic resonance imaging scan of lumbosacral region that suggested T1 hyperintense, T2 hypointense, extramedullary altered signal intensity lesion at L1 and L2 vertebral level compressing terminal spinal cord, and cauda equine region...
Skin biopsies are commonly used for the assessment of skin pathology in various skin diseases including atopic dermatitis (AD). However, due to the invasive nature of skin biopsies, many patients, particularly children, decline participation. This can lead to potential subject sampling bias as data could be skewed toward more severe, older patients willing to give biopsies. Recently, researchers have began studying the skin with a minimal, non-invasive technique using skin tape strips (STS) to profile the e...
The major cause of melanoma mortality is metastasis to distant organs, including lungs and brain. Reciprocal interactions of metastasizing tumor cells with stromal cells in secondary sites play a critical role in all stages of tumorigenesis and metastasis. Changes in the metastatic microenvironment were shown to precede clinically relevant metastases, and may occur prior to the arrival of disseminated tumor cells to the distant organ, thus creating a hospitable "pre-metastatic niche". Exosomes secreted by t...
The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) for Cutaneous melanoma have been significantly revised over the past few years in response to emerging data on immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies and BRAF-targeted therapy. This article summarizes the data and rationale supporting extensive changes to the recommendations for systemic therapy as adjuvant treatment of resected disease and as treatment of unresectable or distant metastatic disease.
