Characterization of Skin Microbiome Profile and it's Correlation to Radiation Dermatitis

2020-02-17 18:20:53 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to characterize the skin microbiome profile of breast cancer patients before and after receiving Radio Therapy treatments, and evaluate the relationship between the microbiome profile and radiation dermatitis severity (grade) that the patient will develop. Such characterizations can lead to potential biomarkers and/or therapeutic targets that can be used for the prognosis, prevention and treatment of this condition.

Disease Trajectories in Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis

The clinical study investigates the course of disease in patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases (atopic eczema and psoriasis). For this purpose, patients are asked once a year to...

Identification of Epidermal Signatures in Patients With Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a skin disorder with an itchy, red skin rash. This may be because certain proteins are increased in the skin of AD patients. The increased expression of these proteins...

Quantitative Thermal Imaging Biomarkers to Detect Acute Skin Toxicity from Breast Radiotherapy Using Supervised Machine Learning.

Radiation-induced dermatitis is a common side effect of breast radiotherapy (RT). Current methods to evaluate breast skin toxicity include clinical examination, visual inspection, and patient-reported...

The Microbiome and Atopic Dermatitis: A Review.

The microbiome is defined as the sum of microbes, their genomes, and interactions in a given ecological niche. Atopic dermatitis is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory skin disease leading to drynes...

Association of Atopic Dermatitis With Bacterial, Fungal, Viral, and Sexually Transmitted Skin Infections.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with altered skin barrier, microbiome, and immune dysregulation that may increase risk of skin infections.

A systematic review and meta-analysis of clinician-reported versus patient-reported outcomes of radiation dermatitis.

Radiation dermatitis is a common adverse effect of radiotherapy (RT) in breast cancer patients. Although radiation dermatitis is reported by either the clinician or the patient, previous studies have ...

Development of an integrated fingerstick blood self-collection device for radiation countermeasures.

We report the development of system for packaging critical components of the traditional collection kit to make an integrated fingerstick blood collector for self-collecting blood samples of 100 μl o...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The widespread involvement of the skin by a scaly, erythematous dermatitis occurring either as a secondary or reactive process to an underlying cutaneous disorder (e.g., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.), or as a primary or idiopathic disease. It is often associated with the loss of hair and nails, hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles, and pruritus. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

A nonimmunologic, chemically induced type of photosensitivity producing a sometimes vesiculating dermatitis. It results in hyperpigmentation and desquamation of the light-exposed areas of the skin.

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.

Methods or procedures used to obtain samples of URINE.

A delayed hypersensitivity involving the reaction between sunlight or other radiant energy source and a chemical substance to which the individual has been previously exposed and sensitized. It manifests as a papulovesicular, eczematous, or exudative dermatitis occurring chiefly on the light-exposed areas of the skin.
