Solar Lentigines are Associated with Better Outcome in Cutaneous Melanoma
Vivien Marasigan, Canan Güvenç, Joost J. van den Oord, Marguerite Stas, Veerle Boecxstaens, Oliver Bechter, Pascal Wolter, Diether Lambrechts, Marjan Garmyn
The rising incidence of cutaneous melanoma and its stable high mortality rates despite innovative cancer care, require better prediction of the clinical outcome. In a large cutaneous melanoma population we explored whether the known clinical risk factors for melanoma susceptibility (nevus phenotype, phototype, family and personal history of melanoma and sun damage) affect melanoma outcomes. A tota ...

Oral and Topical Sirolimus for Vascular Anomalies: A Multicentre Study and Review
Shira Sandbank, Vered Molho-Pessach, Adam Farkas, Aviv Barzilai, Shoshana Greenberger
Vascular anomalies (VAs) may be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of sirolimus (rapamycin) in the treatment of children and young adults with complicated VAs. A retrospective chart was created that included 19 patients treated with sirolimus for complicated VAs. Concurrently, a search of the PubMed database for VA cas ...

Targeting Phosphorylation of p21-activated Kinase 1 at Thr423 Induces Cell Cycle Arrest and Apoptosis in Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma Cells
Yimeng Wang, Weiwei Li, Qian Zhang, Xiaoguang Gu, Xinglan He, Yuehua Men, Chunlei Zhan
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) represents a rare group of extranodal T-cell lymphoproliferative diseases. Due to poor clinical outcome of CTCL, there is an urgent need for new and improved therapies. A small molecule, IPA-3, which inhibits p21-activated kinase 1 (PAK1), has shown therapeutic potential in various types of malignancies. In the present study, the anti-tumor effect of IPA-3 and its ...

Grigorios Theodosiou, Scott Montgomery, Alexandra Metsini, Florence J. Dalgard, Åke Svensson, Laura B. von Kobyletzki
The aim of this study was to assess the burden of atopic dermatitis (AD) in terms of disability adjusted life years (DALY), mental comorbidity, academic attainment, and ability to work. A population-based, cross-sectional questionnaire study was performed among 34,313 randomly selected adults from central Sweden in 2017. The prevalence of AD was 14% and DALY score 527 (uncertainty interval 305–8 ...

Selective Nerve Fibre Activation in Patients with Chronic Generalized Pruritus May Indicate a Central Sensitization Mechanism
Manuel P. Pereira, Konstantin Agelopoulos, Johannes Köllner, Gitta Neufang, Martin Schmelz, Sonja Ständer
Central sensitization induces pain augmentation in chronic pain states. An analogous mechanism is speculated for chronic pruritus. This study compared patients with chronic pruritus (n = 79) of different origins (atopic dermatitis, chronic pruritus on non-lesional skin, chronic prurigo) and healthy controls (HC, n = 54) with regard to itch intensity and qualities of sensory symptoms after ...

Prevalence of Skin-specific Autoantibodies in HIV-infected Patients and Uninfected Controls
Veronique Touzeau-Roemer, Michael Skoll, Pooja Tajpara, Philip Kienzl, Antonia Wesinger, Simona Saluzzo, Martin Bauer, Maximilian C. Aichelburg, Christine Bangert, Wolfgang Bauer, Georg Stingl, Armin Rieger, Katharina Grabmeier-Pfistershammer, Christopher Schuster
Various autoantibodies are detected more frequently in HIV-infected individuals than in HIV-negative controls; however, limited data exist regarding autoimmune blistering skin diseases. Using enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) and indirect immunofluorescence, no difference in the frequency and magnitude of autoantibodies against BP180, BP230, desmoglein 1 and 3 was found between 594 HIV-infected pa ...

Castleman’s disease is a rare disease of the lymph nodes and related tissues, presenting as angiofollicular or giant lymph node hyperplasia. Although various skin manifestations have been reported to occur in Castleman’s disease, a comprehensive study of cutaneous disorders in Castleman’s disease is lacking. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate Castleman’s disease-associated ...

Absolute and Relative Psoriasis Area and Severity Indices (PASI) for Comparison of the Efficacy of Ixekizumab to Etanercept and Placebo in Patients with Moderate-to-severe Plaque Psoriasis: An Integrated Analysis of UNCOVER-2 and UNCOVER-3 Outcomes
Lluís Puig, Martin Dossenbach, Lovisa Berggren, Anders Ljungberg, Claus Zachariae
Treatment goals defined by the absolute Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) scores offer certain advantages in the clinical setting. In order to investigate potential treatment targets, this study evaluated absolute PASI outcomes relative to other measures of response using data from two randomized clinical trials of patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis treated with ixekizumab, etanerce ...

Patch Testing with a New Composition of Mercapto Mix: A Multi­centre Study by the Swedish Contact Dermatitis Research Group
Malin Engfeldt, Marléne Isaksson, Bo Glas, Lina Hagvall, Anna Löfnertz Petersson, Mihály Matura, Berndt Stenberg, Cecilia Svedman, Magnus Bruze
This study investigated whether more patients with contact allergies were detected by patch testing with mercapto mix with a higher concentration of 2-mercaptobenzothiazolinone (MBT) than the commonly used mercapto mix. A total of 3,143 dermatitis patients in 5 Swedish dermatology departments were patch tested with 3 mercapto mixes: MBT 2.0% petrolatum (pet.); mercapto mix 2.0% pet.; and mercapto ...

A Review of Cutaneous Microdialysis of Inflammatory Dermatoses
Helen Rea, Brian Kirby
Microdialysis is a minimally invasive technique to study metabolic, biochemical, and pharmacological events in tissue. Factors that influence microdialysate collection include molecular weight cutoff of the membrane, perfusion rate, perfusate viscosity, duration of collection, depth of the catheter, length of the tubing and adsorption of hydrophobic molecules to the membrane. To standardize these ...
