Skin Manifestations in Patients with Adult-onset Immunodeficiency due to Anti-interferon-gamma Autoantibody: A Relationship with Systemic Infections
Kamonwan Jutivorakool, Prattana Sittiwattanawong, Kornphaka Kantikosum, Cameron P. Hurst, Chanat Kumtornrut, Pravit Asawanonda, Jettanong Klaewsongkram, Pawinee Rerknimitr
Adult-onset immunodeficiency due to anti-interferon-γ autoantibody is an emerging acquired immunodeficiency with frequent skin manifestations. A retrospective chart review was conducted and identified 41 patients with the syndrome. Skin involvement was detected in 33 (80%) patients, 15 (45%) with infective skin diseases and 27 (82%) with reactive skin disorders. Reactive lesions were mostly neutr ...

Eosinophils are a Major Source of Interleukin-31 in Bullous Pemphigoid
Urda Rüdrich, Manuela Gehring, Eleni Papakonstantinou, Anja Illerhaus, Judith Engmann, Alexander Kapp, Karin Hartmann, N. Helge Meyer, Bernhard F. Gibbs, Ulrike Raap
Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is characterized by substantial skin and blood eosinophilia as well as intensive pruritus. Since the pruritogenic cytokine interleukin (IL)-31 is increased in inflammatory skin diseases the aim of this study was to determine whether IL-31 plays a role in BP. Using immunofluorescence, IL-31 expression was analysed in eosinophils derived from blister fluids and skin from pati ...

Tofacitinib Represses the Janus Kinase-Signal Transducer and Activators of Transcription Signalling Pathway in Keratinocytes
Ankit Srivastava, Mona Ståhle, Andor Pivarcsi, Enikö Sonkoly
Tofacitinib is a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, which has shown efficacy in treating psoriasis. The mode of action of tofacitinib is not completely understood but it has been thought to be mediated by the inhibition of CD4+ T-cell activation. Here, we investigated whether the molecular targets of tofacitinib are expressed in keratinocytes, and whether tofacitinib can modulate the activity of the JA ...

Usability of Validated Sleep-assessment Questionnaires in Patients with Chronic Pruritus: An Interview-based Study
Theresa Suilmann, Claudia Zeidler, Nani Osada, Claudia Riepe, Sonja Ständer
Impaired sleep due to nocturnal pruritus is a common symptom in patients with chronic pruritus. However, there is no standardized, simplified instrument for assessing sleep-related problems in patients with chronic pruritus. After a literature search, we conducted 50 interviews with patients with chronic pruritus and tested 12 items most frequently used in routine sleep questionnaires. Afterwards, ...

A Clinical Prediction Model for Surgical Site Infections in Dermatological Surgery
Xiaomeng Liu, Nicole W.J. Kelleners-Smeets, Melissa Sprengers, Vishal Hira, Klara Mosterd, Patty J. Nelemans
To adequately identify patients at risk for surgical site infection in dermatological surgery and effectively prescribe antibiotic prophylaxis, a prediction model may be helpful. Such a model was developed using data from 1,407 patients who underwent dermatological surgery without antibiotic prophylaxis. The multivariable logistic regression model included type of closure, tumour location and defe ...

Cells that constitute the dermal papillae of hair follicles might be derived from the dermal sheath, the peribulbar component of which is the dermal sheath cup. The dermal sheath cup is thought to include the progenitor cells of the dermal papillae and possesses hair inductive potential; however, it has not yet been well characterized. This study investigated the gene expression profile of the int ...

Effect of Age on Melanoma Risk, Prognosis and Treatment Response
Simone Ribero, Luigia Stefania Stucci, Elena Marra, Riccardo Marconcini, Francesco Spagnolo, Laura Orgiano, Virginia Picasso, Paola Queirolo, Guiseppe Palmieri, Pietro Quaglino, Veronique Bataille
As for all types of cancer, the incidence of melanoma increases with age. However, naevus counts (the principal risk factor for melanoma) decrease with age; hence the relationship between ageing and melanoma is complex. Subjects who maintain a high naevus count after the age of 50 years are more likely to be affected by melanoma, as their lesions do not senesce. Longer telomere length, which is st ...
