Comorbidities of Alopecia Areata in Finland between 1987 and 2016
Idamaria Laitinen, Jari Jokelainen, Kaisa Tasanen, Laura Huilaja
We feel this paper is very important due to the fact that alopecia areata is a relatively common disease globally, and very likely more common than acknowledged. One of the main goals of this paper was to increase awareness of alopecia areata both among healthcare professionals and the public by pointing out that alopecia areata is not only a cosmetic problem, but it is also associated with increased risk of several comorbidities. In my opinion, as a person suffering from alopecia areata and as a future doctor, it is important to be aware of these risks.

Autoantibody Profile of a Cohort of 54 Italian Patients with Linear IgA Bullous Dermatosis: LAD-1 Denoted as a Major Auto-antigen of the Lamina Lucida Subtype
Emanuele Cozzani, Giovanni Di Zenzo, Giulia Gasparini, Adele Salemme, Arianna Fay Agnoletti, Camilla Vassallo, Marzia Caproni, Emiliano Antiga, Angelo V. Marzano, Riccardo Cavalli, Corrado Ocella, Clara De Simone, Aurora Parodi
Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is characterized by presence of multiple IgA autoantibodies, and a comparatively lesser number of IgG antibodies, directed against different hemidesmosomal antigens. The main autoantigens are LAD-1, LABD-97, BP180 and BP230, type VII collagen and laminin 332. We retrospectively studied the serology of 54 Italian patients with LABD using enzyme-linked immunosorb ...

Jong Bin Park, Myeong Hyeon Yang, Do Ik Kwon, Seol Hwa Seong, Ji Yun Jang, Kee Suck Suh, Min Soo Jang
Although low-dose methotrexate (MTX) has been used widely in treatment of a variety of dermatological diseases, including multifocal primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (PCALCL), it has not been established for use in the treatment guidelines for solitary or localized PCALCL. Furthermore, there has been no report of long-term follow-up data in Asian patients with PCALCL treated with l ...

Increased Expression of Delta-like Ligand 4 in Mycosis Fungoides
Hikari Boki, Tomomitsu Miyagaki, Yuki Shono, Hiroaki Kamijo, Tomonori Oka, Hiraku Suga, Yoshihide Asano, Makoto Sugaya, Shinichi Sato
In many malignancies, dysregulation of the Notch pathways, composed of 4 Notch receptors (Notch1–4) and 5 Notch ligands (Jagged1–2, Delta-like ligand-1, 3–4), is associated with their development. In mycosis fungoides, interaction between Notch1 and Jagged1 is known to activate the Notch pathways and promote the proliferation of tumour cells. However, the involvement of other Notch ligands h ...

The link between acne and psychiatric morbidities has been demonstrated in many studies; however, large scale studies aiming to reveal the psychosocial impact of acne are rare. The aim of this study was to assess the psychological burden of adult acne patients. This analysis was based on a multicenter study including 213 acne patients and 213 controls from 13 European countries. The Hospital Anxie ...

Sumit Madan, Sudershan Kumar, Jeanett Segal
Two open-label, crossover studies compared the bioavailability of Micronized-isotretinoin 32 mg and Lidose-isotretinoin 40 mg in healthy adults. In the fed bioequivalence/food-effect study, participants (n = 71) received single doses of fed-state Micronized-isotretinoin 32 mg, fed-state Lidose-isotretinoin 40 mg and fasted-state Micronized-isotretinoin 32 mg. In the fasting study, participants ...
