Cutaneous Microdialysis of Uric Acid Level in the Dermis: Modification of In vitro Recovery
Cutaneous microdialysis is a new tool for direct sampling and real-time monitoring in dermatological research. However, its use in general laboratory practice poses several problems, one of which is determination of the relative recovery of the target material. Uric acid, one of the major antioxidants in the skin, was analysed using cutaneous microdialysis in 11 healthy subjects. Two methods for < ...

Orange-Induced Skin Lesions in Patients with Atopic Eczema: Evidence for a Non-IgE-Mediated Mechanism
Oranges are suspected of inducing adverse skin reactions in patients with atopic eczema. We studied 21 adult patients with atopic eczema and a history of adverse reactions to oranges and 10 patients without. A dietary history, skin tests, serum IgE and oral provocation tests with oranges were obtained. Severity of eczema was monitored by SCORAD, and serum tryptase, eosinophil cationic protein and ...
