Itch, or pruritus, is the most common complain reported by patients with epidermolysis bullosa (EB) of all subtypes, and there is no current effective treatment. Itch often triggers scratc...
This study evaluates the clinical effect of foot injection of the bacteria protein Botulinum toxin A on plantar pain in patients with EBS (epidermolysis bullosa simplex).
Epidermolysis Bullosa(EB) is an inherited bullous disease. Tetracycline is believed to have anti inflammatory properties. 20 patients with EB older than 13 years will be treated for 4 mo...
The purpose of this study is to investigate a treatment to enhance the healing of acute and chronic nonhealing cutaneous wounds, such as the erosions experienced by patients with Epidermol...
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate immunomodulation with extracorporeal photochemotherapy (ECP) in patients with epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. II. Investigate the effect of ECP on lymphocyte ac...
Bart syndrome consists of aplasia cutis congenita (ACC) and dominant or recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (DEB), associated with skin fragility and nail dysplasia. ACC in DEB is thought to be...
Oculomotor dysfunction in epidermolysis bullosa simplex associated with muscular dystrophy has been reported rarely in the ophthalmic literature. In a series of 6 patients with epidermolysis bullosa s...
Oral pediatric formulations are either ready-to-use or require manipulation, and multi-use or single-use. Strong encouragement for preservative-free pediatric formulations has resulted in fewer multi-...
The SQ tree SLIT-tablet (ALK) is developed for treatment of tree pollen induced allergic rhinoconjunctivitis (ARC).
We report the case of an infant born with perioral vesicles that rapidly spread to involve his mouth and the majority of his body. Histopathology, immunofluorescence, and enzyme-linked immunohistochem...
A form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by serous bullae that heal without scarring. Mutations in the genes that encode KERATIN-5 and KERATIN-14 have been associated with several subtypes of epidermolysis bullosa simplex.
Form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by atrophy of blistered areas, severe scarring, and nail changes. It is most often present at birth or in early infancy and occurs in both autosomal dominant and recessive forms. All forms of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa result from mutations in COLLAGEN TYPE VII, a major component fibrils of BASEMENT MEMBRANE and EPIDERMIS.
Form of epidermolysis bullosa characterized by trauma-induced, subepidermal blistering with no family history of the disease. Direct immunofluorescence shows IMMUNOGLOBULIN G deposited at the dermo-epidermal junction.
Form of epidermolysis bullosa having onset at birth or during the neonatal period and transmitted through autosomal recessive inheritance. It is characterized by generalized blister formation, extensive denudation, and separation and cleavage of the basal cell plasma membranes from the basement membrane.
Group of genetically determined disorders characterized by the blistering of skin and mucosae. There are four major forms: acquired, simple, junctional, and dystrophic. Each of the latter three has several varieties.
