Thromboxane A2 is Involved in Itch-associated Responses in Mice with Atopic Dermatitis-like Skin Lesions
Tsugunobu Andoh, Ai Yamamoto , Satomi Haza, Koh-ichi Yuhki, Fumitaka Ushikubi, Shu Narumiya, Yasushi Kuraishi
To investigate the mechanisms underlying itching in atopic dermatitis, we examined whether thromboxane (TX) A2, an arachidonic acid metabolite, is involved in spontaneous scratching, an itch-related response, in NC mice with atopic dermatitis-like skin lesions. The TXA2 receptor (TP) antagonist ONO-3708 inhibited the spontaneous scratching. The mRNA expression of TX synthase (TXSyn) distributed ma ...

Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma and Pruritus: The Expression of IL-31 and its Receptors in the Skin
Leigh A. Nattkemper, Maria-Estela Martinez-Escala, Ari B. Gelman, Elisha M. Singer, Alain H. Rook, Joan Guitart, Gil Yosipovitch
Approximately 88% of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) patients are affected by pruritus that responds poorly to current antipruritic therapies. Interleukin (IL)-31, a Th2 cytokine, has been found to be increased in the serum of CTCL patients and to correlate with itch severity. This study investigated the role of IL-31 and its receptors (IL-31 receptor-alpha [IL-31RA] and OSMRβ) in the skin o ...

Immunosuppressive Environment in Basal Cell Carcinoma: The Role of Regulatory T Cells
Silje H. Omland, Patricia S. Nielsen, Lise M.R. Gjerdrum, Robert Gniadecki
Interaction between tumour survival tactics and anti-tumour immune response is a major determinant for cancer growth. Regulatory T cells (T-regs) contribute to tumour immune escape, but their role in basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is not understood. The fraction of T-regs among T cells was analysed by immunohistochemistry followed by automated image analysis in facial BCC, peritumoural skin and normal ...
