Association Between Premature Hair Greying and Metabolic Risk Factors: A Cross-sectional Study
Seung Hwan Paik , Sihyeok Jang, Hee-Kyung Joh, Chun Soo Lim, BeLong Cho, Ohsang Kwon, Seong Jin Jo
The association of hair greying with metabolic syndrome is not well known, while association with obesity and coronary artery disease has been suggested. A cross-sectional study was conducted to identify an association between premature hair greying and metabolic risk factors. Of the 1,929 young healthy subjects (1,067 men and 862 women), 704 (36.4%) were categorized in the premature hair greying ...

Epidemiological Analysis of Major Complications Requiring Medical Intervention in Patients with Neurofibromatosis 1
Yuichi Yoshida, Yuko Ehara, Monji Koga, Shinichi Imafuku, Osamu Yamamoto
Neurofibromatosis 1 has various complications. To elucidate the frequency of neurofibromatosis 1-related major complications requiring medical intervention, a nationwide retrospective study was conducted of 3,530 patients with neurofibromatosis 1 registered from 2001 to 2014 in Japan. The ratio of certified patients requiring medical intervention (>stage 3) was 82%. Patients classified in the most ...

CDKN2A/CDK4 Status in Greek Patients with Familial Melanoma and Association with Clinico-epidemiological Parameters
Fani Karagianni, Ching-Ni Njauw, Katerina P. Kypreou, Aravela Stergiopoulou, Michaela Plaka, Dorothea Polydorou, Vasiliki Chasapi, Leon Pappas, Ioannis Stratigos, Gregory Champsas, Peter Panagiotou, Helen Gogas, Evangelos Evangelou, Hensin Tsao, Alexander Stratigos, Irene Stefanaki
Approximately 5–10% of melanoma cases occur in a familial context. CDKN2A/CDK4 were the first high-penetrance melanoma genes identified. The aims of this study were to evaluate CDKN2A/CDK4 variants in Greek familial melanoma patients and to correlate the mutational status with specific clinico-epidemiological characteristics. A cross-sectional study was conducted by genotyping CDKN2A/CDK4 varian ...

Influence of Itch and Pain on Sleep Quality in Patients with Hidradenitis Suppurativa
Karolina Kaaz, Jacek C. Szepietowski, Łukasz Matusiak
There is a lack of data evaluating the influence of hidradenitis suppurativa-related subjective symptoms on sleep quality. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of itch and pain on sleep quality in 108 patients with hidradenitis suppurativa compared with 50 controls. The Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) were used to evaluate a spectrum of sleep dist ...

Patients with Acne Vulgaris Have a Distinct Gut Microbiota in Comparison with Healthy Controls
Yongqiong Deng, Hong Wang, Jiyuan Zhou, Yunzhou Mou, Guiqiang Wang, Xia Xiong
Acne vulgaris has been postulated to have a gastrointestinal mechanism; however, little is known about gut microbiota dysfunction in this condition. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate whether the gut microbiota is altered in acne. Faecal bacterial diversity was analysed in 43 patients with acne and 43 controls, using hypervariable tag sequencing of the V3–V4 region of the 1 ...

Toll-like Receptor 3 Agonist, Polyinosinic-polycytidylic Acid, Upregulates Carbonic Anhydrase II in Human Keratinocytes
Bani Kaur Suri, Navin Kumar Verma, Artur Schmidtchen
Carbonic anhydrases are ubiquitously expressed enzymes that reversibly hydrate carbon dioxide to bicarbonate and protons. While the main function of carbonic anhydrases is to regulate pH and osmotic balance, their involvement in other physiological processes remains to be explored. This study analysed changes in mRNA and protein levels of carbonic anhydrase II in human primary keratinocytes treate ...

Alopecia Areata is Associated with Increased Expression of Heart Disease Biomarker Cardiac Troponin I
Eddy Hsi Chun Wang, Leopoldo Santos, Xi Yuan Li, Annie Tran, Sandra S.Y. Kim, Katrina Woo, Jerry Shapiro, Kevin J. McElwee
The development of androgenetic alopecia is associated with a risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, but the association of alopecia areata with cardiovascular diseases in humans is largely unexplored. We measured the plasma level of two common cardiovascular disease markers, cardiac troponin I and C-reactive protein, in alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia affected subjects. Also, we in ...
