Pruritus is a frequent symptom in systemic sclerosis (SSc), with a prevalence of 40–65%, but its pathophysiology is poorly understood. This study investigated the immunological component of pruritus. Fifty-six patients with SSc responded to a standardized questionnaire regarding both SSc disease and pruritus characteristics. Among patients with SSc, those with pruritus did not display a particul ...

Toll-like Receptor 3 Agonist, Polyinosinic-polycytidylic Acid, Upregulates Carbonic Anhydrase II in Human Keratinocytes
Bani Kaur Suri, Navin Kumar Verma, Artur Schmidtchen
Carbonic anhydrases are ubiquitously expressed enzymes that reversibly hydrate carbon dioxide to bicarbonate and protons. While the main function of carbonic anhydrases is to regulate pH and osmotic balance, their involvement in other physiological processes remains to be explored. This study analysed changes in mRNA and protein levels of carbonic anhydrase II in human primary keratinocytes treate ...

Alopecia Areata is Associated with Increased Expression of Heart Disease Biomarker Cardiac Troponin I
Eddy Hsi Chun Wang, Leopoldo Santos, Xi Yuan Li, Annie Tran, Sandra S.Y. Kim, Katrina Woo, Jerry Shapiro, Kevin J. McElwee
The development of androgenetic alopecia is associated with a risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, but the association of alopecia areata with cardiovascular diseases in humans is largely unexplored. We measured the plasma level of two common cardiovascular disease markers, cardiac troponin I and C-reactive protein, in alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia affected subjects. Also, we in ...

Patients with Acne Vulgaris Have a Distinct Gut Microbiota in Comparison with Healthy Controls
Yongqiong Deng, Hong Wang, Jiyuan Zhou, Yunzhou Mou, Guiqiang Wang, Xia Xiong
Acne vulgaris has been postulated to have a gastrointestinal mechanism; however, little is known about gut microbiota dysfunction in this condition. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate whether the gut microbiota is altered in acne. Faecal bacterial diversity was analysed in 43 patients with acne and 43 controls, using hypervariable tag sequencing of the V3–V4 region of the 1 ...

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 ...

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 ...
