Evaluation of a Rapid, Fully Automated Platform for Detection of BRAF and NRAS Mutations in Melanoma
Fanny Barel, Briac Guibourg, Laetitia Lambros, Glen Le Flahec, Pascale Marcorelles, Arnaud Uguen
BRAF and NRAS genetic analyses are time-consuming and can delay treatment choices in patients with metastatic melanomas presenting with acute deterioration. We compared the rapid, real-time, fully automated molecular diagnosis platform Idylla™ with next-generation sequencing (NGS) and immunohistochemistry for detection of BRAF and NRAS mutations in 36 patients with metastatic melanomas.

Agreeableness as Predictor of Induced Scratching in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis: A Replication Study
Christina Schut, Katharina Reinisch, Alexander Classen, Sarah Andres, Uwe Gieler, Jörg Kupfer
In patients with atopic dermatitis agreeableness and public self-consciousness have previously been shown to be significant predictors of induced scratching, while depression was significantly related to induced itch. This study aimed to replicate these findings. Itch and scratching were induced by videos of crawling insects or skin diseases. Induced itch was measured using a visual analogue scale ...

We investigate the epidemiology and outcomes of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB) from the Australasian EB registry cohort. Seventeen out of 49 (34.6%) RDEB patients developed at least one SCC. Data detailing SCC was obtainable from 16/17 RDEB-SCC patients. A total number of 161 primary SCCs occurred in 16 RDEB-SCC patients with a mean of 10 SCCs pe ...

Incidence and Regression of Actinic Keratoses in Organ Transplant Recipients
Zainab Jiyad, Louise Marquart, Peter O'Rourke, Adèle C. Green
Actinic keratoses (AKs) are highly dynamic lesions and AK activity has been shown to be associated with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We sought to explore risk factors which may affect the 12-month turnover of AKs in organ transplant recipients (OTRs). The number of incident AKs, regressed AKs and net change in AK counts were calculated. Negative binomial regression and Poisson regression models ...

Lethal Melanomas: A Population-based Registry Study in Western Sweden from 1990 to 2014
Magdalena Claeson, Martin Gillstedt, David C. Whiteman, John Paoli
The incidence rates of thin melanomas (≤1 mm Breslow thickness) have increased in many fair-skinned populations, prompting a need to better identify patients with thin melanomas who will eventually die from the disease. This study aimed to describe the clinicopathological characteristics of lethal melanomas in Western Sweden, with a focus on thin lesions. Population-based data on invasive me ...

This observational study examined the trend from the 1990s to 2016 of sunscreen use, sun protection factor (SPF) and quantity of sunscreen applied amongst beachgoers in Denmark. In 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2016, a total of 1,306 beachgoers were asked if they had used sunscreen on that day and, if so, which SPF. In 1992 and 2016 another 143 beachgoers had their sunscreen bottles weighed before and afte ...

Tomonori Oka, Makoto Sugaya, Naomi Takahashi, Rina Nakajima, Sayaka Otobe, Miyoko Kabasawa, Hiraku Suga, Tomomitsu Miyagaki, Yoshihide Asano, Shinichi Sato
Interleukin-19 (IL-19), a pro-inflammatory cytokine known to stimulate the production of T helper type 2 (Th2) cytokines, is induced by IL-17A and highly expressed in the lesional skin of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis (AD). This aim of this study was to investigate whether IL-19 is involved in cutaneous T-cell lym­phoma (CTCL) and AD. IL-19 levels were significantly higher in the sera of pati ...

This study investigated the risk of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in pre-dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and explored associated risk factors. A population-based cohort of 1,515,858 Taiwanese CKD patients was included. The standardized incidence ratio (SIR) for incident NMSC was determined. Compared with the general population, a 1.14-fold risk of NMSC was found in the CKD co ...

Seven Non-melanoma Features to Rule Out Facial Melanoma

Facial melanoma is difficult to diagnose and dermatoscopic features are often subtle. Dermatoscopic non-melanoma patterns may have a comparable diagnostic value. In this pilot study, facial lesions were collected retrospectively, resulting in a case set of 339 melanomas and 308 non-melanomas. Lesions were evaluated for the prevalence (> 50% of lesional surface) of 7 dermatoscopic non-melanom ...

The introduction of dermoscopy has improved the accuracy of diagnosis of melanoma. However, early stage melanoma can be difficult to diagnose. Eighty-nine cases of thin melanoma with a Breslow thickness ≤1 mm located on the lower limb and diagnosed between 2008 and 2016 were assessed using 4 dermoscopic algorithms: (i) modified pattern analysis; (ii) ABCD rule of dermoscopy; (iii) 7-point ch ...

Patients with photodermatoses or actinic keratosis benefit from very high ultraviolet B-ultraviolet A (UVB-UVA) photoprotection. However, poor compliance is an issue that jeopardizes adequate protection, leading to disease recurrence. This study evaluated the efficacy of a daily protective moisturizer with high UVB and UVA photoprotection applied 8 h before irradiation. A monocentric, open-label, ...

Circulating Tumour DNA for Monitoring Treatment Response to Anti-PD-1 Immunotherapy in Melanoma Patients

Anti-programmed cell death-1 (anti-PD-1) antibody shows high therapeutic efficacy in patients with advanced melanoma. However, assessment of its therapeutic activity can be challenging because of tumour enlargement associated with intratumoural inflammation. Because circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) correlates with tumour burden, we assessed the value of ctDNA levels as an indicator of tumour changes ...

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. ...

Minimally-invasive Sampling of Interleukin-1α and Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist from the Skin: A Systematic Review of In vivo Studies in Humans

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.
