Human Surrogate Models of Histaminergic and Non-histaminergic ItchReview
Human Surrogate Models of Histaminergic and Non-histaminergic Itch
Hjalte H. Andersen, Jesper Elberling, Lars Arendt-Nielsen

Within the last decade understanding of the mechanistic basis of itch has improved significantly, resulting in the development of several human surrogate models of itch and related dysesthetic states. Well-characterized somatosensory models are useful in basic studies in healthy volunteers, in clinical studies for diagnostic and segmentation purposes, and in pharmacological studies to evaluate the ...

We report a 68-year-old Japanese female patient with subepidermal blistering disease with autoantibodies to multiple laminins, who subsequently developed membranous glomerulonephropathy. At skin disease stage, immunofluorescence demonstrated IgG anti-basement membrane zone antibodies reactive with dermal side of NaCl-split skin. Immunoblotting of human dermal extract, purified laminin-332, hemides ...

A Human Surrogate Model of Itch Utilizing the TRPA1 Agonist Trans-cinnamaldehydeInvestigative Report
A Human Surrogate Model of Itch Utilizing the TRPA1 Agonist Trans-cinnamaldehyde
Chris R. Højland, Hjalte H. Andersen, Jeppe N. Poulsen, Lars Arendt-Nielsen, Parisa Gazerani

The thermoreceptive transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) is important in the transmission of itch, and its agonist trans-cinnamaldehyde has occasionally been reported to be a pruritogen in humans. However, no studies have accurately quantified the capabilities of trans-cinnamaldehyde to induce itch and related dysesthetic sensations. The present study examined alterations in somatosenso ...
