Johanna Hidding, Konstantin Agelopoulos, Manuel P. Pereira, Heike Conrad, Hanns Hatt, Tobias Lotts, Nani Osada, Esther Pogatzki-Zahn, Martin Schmelz, Sonja Ständer
Chronic pruritus (CP) is often accompanied by paresthetic sensations like warmth, burning and stinging. The aim of this study was to analyze, whether divergent sensations are linked to structural and functional skin alterations in clinically diagnosed CP patients. Clinical responses to capsaicin, histamine, and to thermal and mechanical stimulation, intraepidermal nerve fiber density, and epiderma ...

Erythropoietic Protoporphyria in a Japanese Population
Megumi Mizawa, Teruhiko Makino, Hajime Nakano, Daisuke Sawamura, Tadamichi Shimizu
Erythropoietic protoporphyria is caused by a partial deficiency of ferrochelatase, which is the last enzyme in the heme biosynthesis pathway. In a typical erythropoietic protoporphyria, photosensitivity initially appears, following the first exposure to the sun in early infancy or childhood. Erythropoietic protoporphyria has been reported worldwide, but there is a regional variation in its epidemi ...

Emely Verweyen, Sonja Ständer, Kiana Kreitz, Inga Höben, Nani Osada, Marvin Gernart, Claudia Riepe, Manuel Pereira, Christine Blome, Matthias Augustin, Claudia Zeidler
Few studies have validated standard measurement instruments for evaluation of chronic pruritus. The Chronic Pruritus Tools Questionnaire PRURITOOLS assembles a set of instruments for the assessment of pruritus, such as the visual analogue scale (horizontal 100-mm line), numerical rating scale (0–10), verbal rating scale, and information on pruritus quality and improvement during therapy. This st ...

Constanze Jonak, Stefanie Porkert, Simone Oerlemans, Evangelia Papadavid, Kevin Molloy, Eva Lehner-Baumgartner, Antonio Cozzio, Fabio Efficace, Julia Scarisbrick
Previous studies have reported that primary cutaneous lymphomas profoundly influence patients’ health-related quality of life (HRQoL). However, assessment of this psycho-social concept is not common in routine patient care unless required within clinical trials. The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive overview of HRQoL measures and outcomes in cutaneous lym­phomas in order to infor ...

Gliptin-associated Bullous Pemphigoid and the Expression of Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4/CD26 in Bullous Pemphigoid
Outi Lindgren, Outi Varpuluoma, Jussi Tuusa, Jorma Ilonen, Laura Huilaja, Nina Kokkonen, Kaisa Tasanen
Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP-4i or gliptins) increase the risk of developing bullous pemphigoid (BP). To clarify, whether gliptin-associated BP has special features, we analyzed the clinical, histopathological and immunological features of 27 BP patients, 10 of which previously used gliptin medication. Compared to those who had not previously received gliptins, subjects who had, showed h ...

Nail Psoriasis: An Updated Review and Expert Opinion on Available Treatments, Including Biologics
Federico Bardazzi, Michela Starace, Francesca Bruni, Michela Magnano, Bianca Maria Piraccini, Aurora Alessandrini
Nail psoriasis affects 50–79% of patients with skin psoriasis and up to 80% of patients with psoriatic arthritis, and can also represent a negative prognostic factor in individuals with plaque psoriasis. Treatments for nail psoriasis are limited, as nails are often difficult to treat with topical therapies alone, and relapse is common. Among different systemic agents, secukinumab, a fully human ...

Low- vs. Middle-dose Total Skin Electron Beam Therapy for Mycosis Fungoides: An Efficiency-based Retrospective Survey of Skin Response
Annelies Taverniers, Aurélie Du-Thanh, Marie Charissoux, Christine Kerr, Olivier Dereure
Optimal doses of total skin electron beam therapy for mycosis fungoides remain to be established. Clinical efficiency and adverse effects of middle-dose (25 Gy) vs. low-dose (10–12 Gy) total skin electron beam therapy were retrospectively compared in a series of 14 and 12 mycosis fungoides, respectively. Overall skin response rate was 96.2% (92.9% middle-dose and 100% low-dose; not significant ( ...

Drug-induced Linear IgA Bullous Dermatosis: a Case Report and Review of the Literature
Judith Lammer, Rüdiger Hein, Sophie Roenneberg, Tilo Biedermann, Thomas Volz
Linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD) is a rare subepidermal autoimmune blistering disease characterized by linear deposition of IgA along the basement membrane zone. Although most reported cases are idiopathic, there is a subset of patients with drug-induced LABD. Various drugs have been associated with the drug-induced form of the disease. This paper reviews the literature on drugs reported to el ...

Inhibiting Sphingosine Kinase 2 Derived-sphingosine-1-phosphate Ameliorates Psoriasis-like Skin Disease via Blocking Th17 Differentiation of Naïve CD4 T Lymphocytes in Mice
Sun-Hye Shin, Kyung-Ah Cho, Soojung Hahn, Younghay Lee, Yu-He Kim, So-Youn Woo, Kyung-Ha Ryu, Woo-Jae Park, Joo-Won Park
Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a signalling sphingolipid metabolite that regulates important cell processes, including cell proliferation and apoptosis. Circulating S1P levels have been reported to be increased in patients with psoriasis relative to healthy patients. The aim of this study was to examine the potency of S1P inhibition using an imiquimod-induced psoriasis mouse model. Both topical ...

Neuromedin B Induces Acute Itch in Mice via the Activation of Peripheral Sensory Neurons
Sarah Ehling, Tomoki Fukuyama, Mei-Chuan Ko, Thierry Olivry, Wolfgang Bäumer
Neuromedin B is expressed in nociceptive and itch-sensitive dorsal root ganglia neurons, but its peripheral pruritogenic potential is not well described. The potential of neuromedin B as a pruritogen and pro-inflammatory peptide in the skin was tested in vivo in an acute model in mice and monkeys as well as an allergic dermatitis model in mice. To identify the underlying mechanisms in vitro real t ...

Strong Associations Between Inflammation, Pruritus and Mental Health in Dialysis Patients
Severin Schricker, Thorsten Heider, Moritz Schanz, Jürgen Dippon, Mark Dominik Alscher, Heinz Weiss, Thomas Mettang, Martin Kimmel
Pruritus, impaired mental health and inflammation contribute to morbidity in end-stage renal disease. There are no studies on all 3 conditions. We therefore obtained inflammatory parameter data (C-reactive protein and interleukin-6), pruritus data and psychological test data (36-Item Short-Form Health Survey, “Allgemeine Depressionsskala” and Toronto Alexithymia Scale-20) for 19 dialysis patie ...

Serum miR-125a-5p and CCL17 Upregulated in Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria and Correlated with Treatment Response
Liming Zhang, Ruiqun Qi, Yang Yang, Xinghua Gao, Hongduo Chen, Ting Xiao
Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is a common skin disorder associated with autoimmunity. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous noncoding RNA molecules reported to be potential biomarkers for some autoimmune diseases. In this study, we investigated the association of miRNAs with CSU. A quantitative PCR (qPCR)-based array was generated from sera as obtained from 20 active CSU patients and 20 healthy ...

Aberrant Expression of Histamine-independent Pruritogenic Mediators in Keratinocytes may be Involved in the Pathogenesis of Prurigo Nodularis
Weilong Zhong, Xia Wu, Wei Zhang, Jie Zhang, Xiaofan Chen, Shihong Chen, Haiyan Huang, Yong Yang, Bo Yu, Xia Dou
Prurigo nodularis is a highly pruritic and hyperplastic chronic dermatosis with unknown pathogenesis. Many pruritogenic mediators, including nerve growth factor, interleukin (IL)-31, thymic stromal lymphopoietin, and endothelin-1, are implicated in chronic itch and inflammation. This study investigated the mRNA levels and immunoreactivity of the nerve growth factor, IL-31, thymic stromal lymphopoi ...
