Antidepressants have Anti-inflammatory Effects that may be Relevant to Dermatology: A Systematic Review
Shirin Eskeland, Jon Anders Halvorsen, Lars Tanum
There is increasing evidence of clinically relevant anti-inflammatory effects of monoaminergic antidepressants. PubMed and Ovid databases were searched systematically for the use and efficacy of antidepressants in association with 5 common inflammatory skin disorders: chronic urticaria, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, other eczema, and alopecia areata. From January 1984 to June 2016, publications in ...

Topical Oxybutynin 10% Gel for the Treatment of Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis: A Randomized Double-blind Placebo-controlled Split Area Study
Ofir Artzi, Christophoros Loizides, Eyal Zur, Eli Sprecher
Limited efficacy, costs, side-effects and complications are issues of concern for most current therapeutic modalities for focal hyperhidrosis. This study evaluated the efficacy of topical oxybutynin 10% gel in treating 61 patients with primary focal hyperhidrosis. The gel was applied to the right or left axilla, palms or soles vs. a placebo compound to the contralateral side for 30 days. A blinded ...

A Review of 52 Pedigrees with Epidermolysis Bullosa Simplex Identifying Ten Novel Mutations in KRT5 and KRT14 in Australia
Emma N. Kim, Adam G. Harris, Linda J. Bingham, Wenfei Yan, John C. Su, Dedee F. Murrell
Epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS) is a rare heritable skin fragility disorder, most commonly caused by dominant mutations in KRT5 and KRT14. EBS shows clinical heterogeneity with localised, intermediate and generalised severe forms, which tend to correlate with the location and nature of the disease causing mutations. We therefore aimed to identify the KRT5 and KRT14 mutations in patients diagno ...

Blocking mTOR Signalling with Rapamycin Ameliorates Imiquimod-induced Psoriasis in Mice
Claudia Bürger, Nitesh Shirsath, Victoria Lang, Sandra Diehl, Roland Kaufmann, Andreas Weigert, Ying-ying Han, Christian Ringel, Peter Wolf
The mTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin) inhibitor rapamycin has long been known for its immune suppressive properties, but it has shown limited therapeutic success when given systemically to patients with psoriasis. Recent data have shown that the mTOR pathway is hyperactivated in lesional psoriatic skin, which probably contributes to the disease by interfering with maturation of keratinocytes. ...

Combined Fractional Treatment of Acne Scars Involving Non-ablative 1,550-nm Erbium-glass Laser and Micro-needling Radiofrequency: A 16-week Prospective, Randomized Split-face Study
Hyuck Hoon Kwon, Hae Young Park, Sun Chul Choi, Youin Bae, Chanhee Kang, Jae Yoon Jung, Gyeong-Hun Park
An optimized therapeutic regimen involving a non-ablative fractionated laser or radiofrequency therapy for acne scars has not yet been established. To evaluate whether the combination of a non-ablative fractional laser (NAF) and fractional micro-needling radiofrequency (FMR) has clinical advantages for the treatment of atrophic acne scars compared with NAF alone, a 16-week prospective, randomized ...

Minimally-invasive Sampling of Interleukin-1α and Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist from the Skin: A Systematic Review of in Vivo Studies in Humans
Denise Falcone, Pieter Spee, Peter C.M. van de Kerkhof, Piet E.J. van Erp
Interleukin-1α (IL-1α) and its receptor antagonist IL-1RA play a pivotal role in skin homeostasis and disease. Although the use of biopsies to sample these cytokines from human skin is widely employed in dermatological practice, knowledge about less invasive, in vivo sampling methods is scarce. The aim of this study was to provide an overview of such methods by systematically reviewing studi ...

A Novel Actinic Keratosis Field Assessment Scale for Grading Actinic Keratosis Disease Severity
Brigitte Dréno, Rino Cerio, Thomas Dirschka, Ignasi Figueras Nart, John T. Lear, Ketty Peris, Andrés Ruiz de Casas, Shaniko Kaleci, Giovanni Pellacani; Progressing Evidence in AK (PEAK) Working Group
Actinic keratosis (AK) lesions are surrounded by field cancerization (areas of subclinical, non-visible sun damage). Existing AK grading tools rely on AK counts, which are not reproducible. An Actinic Keratosis Field Assessment Scale (AK-FAS) for grading the severity of AK/field was developed. Standardized photographs of patients representing the full range of AK severity were collected. Six inves ...

Folliculotropic Mycosis Fungoides with Skewed T-cell Receptor CDR3 Motif: Suggestive of Lipid-antigen Selection?
Panagiota Mantaka, Agnieszka Malecka, Gunhild Trøen, Per Helsing, Petter Gjersvik, Klaus Beiske, Jan Delabie
Folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF), a variant of mycosis fungoides (MF) with distinct clinical features, is characterized by infiltration of malignant T cells in hair follicles. This raises the hypothesis that antigens in the hair follicle may contribute to the pathogenesis of FMF. T-cell receptor β gene (TRB) sequences as well as dendritic cell subsets in patients with FMF (n = ...

Involvement of µ-opioid Receptors and κ-opioid Receptors in Itch-related Scratching Behaviour of Imiquimod-induced Psoriasis-like Dermatitis in Mice
Nobuaki Takahashi, Mitsutoshi Tominaga, Ryohei Kosaka, Yayoi Kamata, Yoshie Umehara, Hironori Matsuda, Azumi Sakaguchi, Hideoki Ogawa, Kenji Takamori
The pathogenesis of psoriatic itch is poorly understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the involvement of opioid receptors in scratching behaviour of imiquimod-induced psoriasis-like dermatitis model mice. Topical application of 5% imiquimod cream to the rostral back skin of mice induced antihistamine-resistant scratching behaviour. The expression of µ-opioid receptor (MOR) protein i ...

Involvement of Leukotriene B4 Released from Keratinocytes in Itch-associated Response to Intradermal Interleukin-31 in Mice
Tsugunobu Andoh, Ayako Harada, Yasushi Kuraishi
A recent study suggests that interleukin-31 (IL-31) exerts its effect via indirect mechanisms rather than through direct stimulation of cutaneous nerves. However, the underlying peripheral mechanisms of IL-31-induced itch in the skin remain unclear. Therefore, the present study investigated the peripheral mechanisms underlying IL-31-induced itch in mice. IL-31-induced itch-related response was inh ...

Alexithymia, Illness Perception and Self-management Competency in Psoriasis
Marie H. Larsen, Anne Lene Krogstad, Astrid K. Wahl
Alexithymia, defined as difficulty in describing or recognizing emotions, has been shown to be connected with psoriasis, but its relationship with self-management of psoriasis has not been explored. The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of alexithymia and its relationship with self-management and illness perception in the context of psoriasis. A total of 163 patients participating in 3 ...

Psoriasis and Pro-angiogenetic Factor CD93: Gene Expression and Association with Gene Polymorphism Suggests a Role in Disease Pathogenesis
Albert Duvetorp, Renate Slind Olsen, Marita Skarstedt, Jan Söderman, Oliver Seifert
CD93 is involved in angiogenesis and inflammation, both of which are key processes in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. CD93 was studied in serum, peripheral blood mononuclear cells and skin of patients with psoriasis and controls. Furthermore, allele frequencies for CD93 single-nucleotide polymorphisms rs2749812 and rs2749817 were assessed in patients with psoriasis compared with controls and the ef ...

Debunking the Myth of Wool Allergy: Reviewing the Evidence for Immune and Non-immune Cutaneous Reactions
Michaela Zallmann, Pete K. Smith, Mimi L.K. Tang, Lynda J. Spelman, Jennifer L. Cahill, Gabriele Wortmann, Constance H. Katelaris, Katrina J. Allen, John C. Su
Although wool is commonly believed to cause irritant (non-immune) and hypersensitivity (immune) cutaneous reactions, the evidence basis for this belief and its validity for modern garments have not been critically examined. Publications from the last 100 years, using MEDLINE and Google Scholar, were analysed for evidence that wool causes cutaneous reactions, both immune-mediated (atopic dermatitis ...
