Multicomponent Biomarker Approach Improves the Accuracy of Diagnostic Biomarkers for Psoriasis Vulgaris
Ene Reimann, Freddy Lättekivi, Maris Keermann, Kristi Abram, Sulev Kõks, Külli Kingo, Alireza Fazeli
Accurate biomarker-based diagnosis of psoriasis vulgaris has remained a challenge; no reliable disease-specific biomarkers have yet been identified. There are several different chronic inflammatory skin diseases that can present similar clinical and dermoscopy features to psoriasis vulgaris, making accurate diagnosis more difficult. Both literature-based and data-driven selection of biomarker was ...

Ferdinand Toberer, Holger A. Haenssle, Arno Rütten, Dmitry Kazakov, Liubov Kastnerova, Alexander Enk, Wolfgang Hartschuh, Ines Bertlich, Julia Hartmann, Martin Laimer, Wolfgang Weyers, Peter Helmbold, Heinz Kutzner
To shed more light on the pathogenesis of sebaceous carcinoma, we analysed the expression of proteins related to angiogenesis in 18 ocular and 22 extraocular sebaceous carcinomas using a broad panel of immunohistochemical markers. To quantify the expression of D2-40, vascular endothelial growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 and -3, we calculated a quantification score by co ...

Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma Tumour Size is Associated with Sentinel Lymph Node Metastasis in a Cohort of 69 Patients
Emilien Chabrillac, Amélie Lusque, Zoé Cavallier, Raphaël Lopez, Thomas Filleron, Jérôme Sarini, Nicolas Meyer, Sébastien Vergez
Ten to fifty percent of high-risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma may potentially metastasize. However, the concept of sentinel lymph node biopsy remains controversial for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. The aim of this study was to identify prognostic factors associated with sentinel lymph node positivity. A bicentric retrospective analysis was conducted between January 2006 and January 2018 ...

The initiation and evaluation of treatment with biologics for psoriasis is based on the Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) and/or Dermatological Life Quality Index (DLQI). However, these indices do not always correlate well, and changes in the DLQI do not always follow changes in the PASI. Based on data from the Danish national registry (DERMBIO), this study investigated the correlation between ...

Safety and Efficacy of Topically Applied Selected Cutibacterium acnes Strains over Five Weeks in Patients with Acne Vulgaris: An Open-label, Pilot Study
Ante Karoglan, Bernhard Paetzold, Joao Pereira De Lima, Holger Brüggemann, Thomas Tüting, Denny Schanze, Marc Güell, Harald Gollnick
Imbalance in skin microflora, particularly related to certain Cutibacterium acnes strains, may trigger acne. Application of non-acne-causing strains to the skin may modulate the skin microbiome and thereby lead to a reduction in acne. This pilot study evaluates the safety and efficacy of microbiome modulation on acne-prone skin. The study had 2 phases: active induction (5% benzoyl peroxide gel, 7 ...

Comparative Analyses of Tumour Volume Doubling Times for Periocular and Non-periocular Head and Neck Basal Cell Carcinomas
Andre Boo Shern Khoo, Patrick Kin Yoong Goon, Holger Sudhoff, Peter Kin Cho Goon
Basal cell carcinomas are the commonest solid malignancy in humans and thought to grow faster in the periocular region. We measured growth rates between periocular and non-periocular nodular basal cell carcinomas in the head and neck region from high-resolution digital photos and operative notes. The non-periocular basal cell carcinomas (head and neck) showed a mean tumour volume doubling time of ...

Skin Barrier Damage and Itch: Review of Mechanisms, Topical Management and Future Directions
Gil Yosipovitch, Laurent Misery, Ehrhardt Proksch, Martin Metz, Sonja Ständer, Martin Schmelz
Barrier damage, dry skin and itch are intricately linked and form the basis of many common skin diseases. Damage from environmental insults, or genetic or inflammatory causes, can impair the skin barrier, resulting in an increase in transepidermal water loss and activation of itch-associated nerve fibres. The itch-scratch cycle can perpetuate skin barrier damage and itch. Topical therapeutic strat ...

Managing extracranial arteriovenous malformations is challenging. Sirolimus (rapamycin) is increasingly being used when surgery and embolization are not advised. Because of its anti-angiogenic properties here we report all extracranial arteriovenous malformation cases treated with sirolimus in 2 French tertiary centers for vascular anomalies. The outcomes were efficacy (complete, partial, no respo ...

Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans Re-excision and Recurrence Rates in the Netherlands Between 1989 and 2016
Charlotte B. van Lee, Wilner Christopher Kan, Sonia Gran, Antien Mooyaart, Marc A.M. Mureau, Hywel C. Williams, Rubeta Matin, Renate van den Bos, Loes M. Hollestein
Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is a rare soft tissue tumour with a very low (< 0.5%) rate of metastasis. Rates of re-excision and recurrence were determined using data from the Netherlands Cancer Registry between 1989 and 2016. Of the 1,890 instances of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans included, 87% were treated with excision, 4% with Mohs micrographic surgery, and 9% otherwise or unknown. Linke ...

Nail-patella syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by nail dysplasia and skeletal anomaly. Some patients have been shown to have ultrastructural abnormalities of the glomerular basement membrane that result in nephrosis. However, little has been reported on the epidermal basement membrane in this condition. This paper reports 2 families with nail-patella syndrome. Direct sequenc ...
