Classic scleritis, on the other hand, affects deeper tissue and is characterized by higher rates of visual acuity loss and even mortality, particularly in necrotizing form. Its characteristic symptom is severe and general head pain. Scleritis has also been associated with systemic collagen disease. Etiology is unknown but is thought to involve a local immune response. Treatment is difficult and includes administration of anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive agents such as corticosteroids. Inflammation of the sclera may also be secondary to inflammation of adjacent tissues, such as the conjunctiva.Dextrocardia: A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the THORAX instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position).

Contribution of interleukin 1beta and KM loci to alopecia areata. (1/140)

Alopecia areata is a common skin disease in which proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-1beta may play a pathogenic role. In this study, we examined the distribution of genotypes of an IL-1beta single base change polymorphism at position +3953 in patients with alopecia areata. The distribution of immunoglobulin kappa light chain (KM) genotypes was similarly examined. The data obtained showed that the IL-1beta and KM loci act cooperatively to significantly increase susceptibility to alopecia areata.  (+info)

Successful treatment of alopecia areata-like hair loss with the contact sensitizer squaric acid dibutylester (SADBE) in C3H/HeJ mice. (2/140)

A type of hair loss closely resembling human alopecia areata has been described in C3H/HeJ mice. In order to test the assumed analogy with human alopecia areata, we investigated the efficacy of treatment with the contact allergen squaric acid dibutylester. In 12 C3H/HeJ mice with alopecia areata an allergic contact dermatitis was induced and elicited weekly on one side of the back by topical applications of squaric acid dibutylester. Overt hair regrowth was observed only on the treated side of the back in nine of 12 mice. Histopathologic examination revealed a change in the distribution of the inflammatory infiltrate from a dense perifollicular lymphocytic infiltrate around the mid and lower regions of hair follicles in untreated skin to a uniform presence in the upper dermis in treated skin. Immunohistomorphometric studies revealed that treatment with squaric acid dibutylester increased the CD4+/CD8+ ratio from approximately 1:2 in untreated alopecia areata to 1:1 in treated alopecia areata. Additional immunohistochemical investigations showed an aberrant expression of major histocompatibility complex class I, major histocompatibility complex class II and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 on keratinocytes of the mid and lower parts of hair follicles in untreated alopecia areata. In successfully treated skin ectopic major histocompatibility complex class I and II expression was clearly reduced, whereas intercellular adhesion molecule 1 expression showed only minor changes. In conclusion, alopecia areata-like hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice responded to treatment with the contact sensitizer squaric acid dibutylester analogous to human alopecia areata. Moreover, successful treatment changes the aberrant expression of major histocompatibility complex class I and II in a way similar to that observed in human alopecia areata. These observations support the concept that alopecia areata-like hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice can be utilized as an appropriate model for the study of human alopecia areata.  (+info)

Role of cytotoxic T cells in chronic alopecia areata. (3/140)

Cytokines play a role in alopecia areata. We used immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization studies to demonstrate the persistence of pro-inflammatory as well as apoptotic mechanisms in skin biopsies from patients with chronic alopecia areata. In situ hybridization allows the visualization of the distribution of immunocompetent cells in vivo. We studied skin biopsies from 11 untreated alopecia areata patients and two normal controls. In situ hybridization was performed on frozen sections using 35S-radio-labeled riboprobes, specific for IL-1beta, IL-2, IL-6, INFgamma, and granzyme B mRNA. Immunohistochemistry was carried out using an anti-IL-1beta monoclonal antibody, and a monoclonal antibody directed against the human Fas protein. We demonstrated the presence of cells labeled with IL-1beta, IL-6, INFgamma, and granzyme B antisense probes. Similarly, cells labeled with anti-IL-1beta were found in 10 of 11 cases. The labeled cells were located in the mononuclear peri- and intrafollicular infiltrate. Cells expressing granzyme B were found in close contact with the follicle. Fas positivity was demonstrated in four of four cases at the level of the cytoplasmic membrane of the hair follicle keratinocytes. These results, based on visualizing the labeled cells, demonstrate that pro-inflammatory cytokines are produced by the mononuclear cell infiltrate in close contact with follicles in alopecia areata. Furthermore, they demonstrate for the first time that apoptotic mechanisms involving granzyme B and Fas-Fas ligand pathways may play a major role in the persistence of chronic alopecia areata.  (+info)

Practical management of hair loss. (5/140)

OBJECTIVE: To describe an organized diagnostic approach for both nonscarring and scarring alopecias to help family physicians establish an accurate in-office diagnosis. To explain when ancillary laboratory workup is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Current diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for hair loss are based on randomized controlled studies, uncontrolled studies, and case series. MEDLINE was searched from January 1966 to December 1998 with the MeSH words alopecia, hair, and alopecia areata. Articles were selected on the basis of experimental design, with priority given to the most current large multicentre controlled studies. Overall global evidence for therapeutic intervention for hair loss is quite strong. MAIN MESSAGE: The most common forms of nonscarring alopecias are androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium, and alopecia areata. Other disorders include trichotillomania, traction alopecia, tinea capitis, and hair shaft abnormalities. Scarring alopecia is caused by trauma, infections, discoid lupus erythematosus, or lichen planus. Key to establishing an accurate diagnosis is a detailed history, including medication use, systemic illnesses, endocrine dysfunction, hair-care practices, and family history. All hair-bearing sites should be examined. A 4-mm punch biopsy of the scalp is useful, particularly to diagnose scarring alopecias. Once a diagnosis has been established, specific therapy can be initiated. CONCLUSIONS: Diagnosis and management of hair loss is an interesting challenge for family physicians. An organized approach to recognizing characteristic differential features of hair loss disorders is key to diagnosis and management.  (+info)

Treatment with an anti-CD44v10-specific antibody inhibits the onset of alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice. (6/140)

A murine CD44v10-neutralizing antibody has been reported to impair delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions. Because alopecia areata is characterized by a delayed-type hypersensitivity-like T cell mediated immune response, we addressed the question whether an anti-CD44v10-antibody influences the onset of alopecia areata. Therefore, we used the C3H/HeJ mouse model with the induction of alopecia areata in unaffected mice by the grafting of lesional alopecia areata mouse skin. Six grafted mice were injected (intraperitoneally) with anti-CD44v10, six grafted mice with anti-CD44standard, and six with phosphate-buffered saline only. After 11 wk phosphate-buffered saline injected animals on average had developed alopecia areata on 36.8% of their body. The onset of hair loss was slightly delayed and its extent reduced to 17.2% of their body in anti-CD44standard-treated mice. By contrast, five of six anti-CD44v10-treated mice did not show any hair loss and one mouse developed alopecia areata on only 1% of the body. Immunohistochemical examination revealed a marked reduction of perifollicular CD8+ lymphocytes and, to a lesser degree, CD4+ cells as well as a decreased expression of major histocompatibility complex class I on hair follicle epithelium in anti-CD44v10-treated mice as compared with phosphate-buffered saline or anti-CD44 standard-treated mice. Our data show that anti-CD44v10 is able to inhibit the onset of alopecia areata in C3H/HeJ mice. This might be accomplished by an anti-CD44v10-triggered impairment of immune cell homing (e.g., CD8+ T cells), resulting in a decrease of their number in target tissues.  (+info)

Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist allele 2 and familial alopecia areata. (7/140)

Alopecia areata affects 1%-2% of the population and is hypothesized to be an autoimmune, organ specific T-cell mediated reaction directed against the human hair follicle. It is characterized by loss of hair in patches (alopecia areata) with progression in some individuals to total loss of scalp hair (alopecia totalis) or to loss of all scalp and body hair (alopecia universalis). The interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RN) gene was found to be associated with more severe clinical outcome in several chronic inflammatory diseases, including alopecia areata. The IL-1RN*2 allele was found to be associated with alopecia areata severity in a British case-control study. In this paper, we analyzed alopecia areata probands in a family-based sample (n = 131 parent-offspring trios) to study the association between alleles of the IL-1RN and various phenotypes of alopecia areata. In considering all patients with any form of alopecia areata, no association was found with IL-1RN. IL-1RN*2 allele was not associated with alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis. A borderline association was observed between IL-1RN and patchy alopecia areata but it was not statistically significant (p =0.06). We also observed an association between IL1-RN*1 allele and patchy alopecia areata (p =0.045).  (+info)

Melanocyte-associated T cell epitopes can function as autoantigens for transfer of alopecia areata to human scalp explants on Prkdc(scid) mice. (8/140)

Alopecia areata is a tissue restricted autoimmune condition affecting the hair follicle, resulting in hair loss. The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that the autoantigen of alopecia areata is melanocyte associated. Potential autoantigens were tested in the human scalp explant/Prkd(scid) CB-17 mouse transfer system. Scalp T cells from lesional (bald) alopecia areata scalp were cultured with antigen-presenting cells, and antigen, along with interleukin-2. The T cells were then injected into autologous lesional scalp grafts on SCID mice, and hair regrowth was measured. Hair follicle homogenate was used as an autoantigen control. T cells cultured with melanoma homogenate induced statistically significant reduction in hair growth (p <0.01 by ANOVA). HLA-A2-restricted melanocyte peptide epitopes were then tested with lesional scalp T cells from HLA-A2-positive alopecia areata patients. Melanocyte-peptide-activated T cells significantly reduced the number of hairs regrowing in two experiments with six patients (p <0.001 by ANOVA). Injected scalp grafts showed histologic and immunochemical changes of alopecia areata. The most consistent peptide autoantigens were the Gp100-derived G9-209 and G9-280 peptides, as well as MART-1 (27-35). Melanocyte peptide epitopes can function as autoantigens for alopecia areata. Multiple peptides were recognized, suggesting epitope spreading.  (+info)

Alopecia areata is the loss of hair in circular or oval patches from the scalp or elsewhere such as eyebrows, beard, etc. Thebald patches are usually of the size of a five-rupee coin or one-rupee coin. Complete loss of hair may also occur in some individuals although it is not very common. Having bald patches on ones head, beard and eyebrows can be very distressing. Alopecia areata is a fairly common skin disorder and about 1 percent of the population is affected at any given time. Unlike other kinds of hair loss, alopecia areata is a reversible hair loss as the follicles ( a structure that encloses the root of the hair) of hair are not damaged. Alopecia areata does not affect patient health in any other way.

Alopecia areata is a condition in which hair is lost either from part of the scalp, all of the scalp, or the entire body, and it affects 1% to 2% of the population. It is thought to be an autoimmune disease and in some cases the disease is hereditary. The Alopecia Areata Registry will collect information and blood samples from clinically well-characterized patients with these three forms of alopecia areata: alopecia partialis (patchy loss of the scalp hair), alopecia totalis (total loss of all scalp hair), and alopecia universalis (complete loss of all hair everywhere on the body). This will be a collection of patients in multi-generational families, twins, single patients with patchy, persistent transient alopecia areata or long-standing alopecia totalis/universalis and with controls (persons unaffected and not related to alopecia patients). Information from these patients will be used to search the human genome for disease-associated loci and/or genes. Researchers interested in doing ...
Background: Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune disease, where there are many topical and systemic therapies, during which hair growth appears in a uniform pattern. In certain cases, hair regrowth takes a polycyclic pattern simulating a target, so called targetoid phenomena. Objective: To screen all cases of treated alopecia areata for hair targetoid regrowth pattern. Methods: This is an observational study, was conducted in Dermatology Department of Baghdad Teaching Hospital in Iraq, during the period, August 2017 to October 2017. All cases treated for alopecia areata with IM triamcinolone 20 - 40 mg injection every 2 weeks with topical clobetasone ointment and zinc sulfate 2 mg/kg/day for 2 months, were examined for the targetoid concentric hair regrowth pattern. Result: Among all cases of alopecia areata, seven patients were recorded to have the targetoid concentric hair pattern, which seen 2 - 4 weeks after therapy, their ages ranged from 4 to 25 years old with a mean 14.5, all of them were
NEW YORK - A team of investigators led by Columbia University Medical Center has uncovered eight genes that underpin alopecia areata, one of the most common causes of hair loss, as reported in a paper in the July 1, 2010 issue of Nature. Since many of the genes are also implicated in other autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes - and treatments have already been developed that target these genes - this discovery may soon lead to new treatments for the 5.3 million Americans suffering from hair loss caused by alopecia areata.. According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, alopecia areata is a common autoimmune skin disease resulting in the loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere. It affects approximately two percent of the population overall. While it affects both men and women equally, it is diagnosed more often in women, since they are more likely to seek treatment.. Among the eight genes, one stands out for its potential role in the onset of alopecia ...
A:. This is a great question.. Base on the information in your query it appears that this child has Alopecia Areata (AA) or its more severe form "Alopecia Capitis". Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease that might progress to involve large areas of the scalp in some cases. This disorder can improve spontaneously and without any treatment. When this does not occur a physician must monitor it and consider various approaches. There is no perfect treatment that can guarantee full recovery in resistant cases of AA.. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) has been in the news in recent years. PRP has been suggested for treatment of several types of hair loss conditions. However at this time, there is not sufficient level of solid evidence to prove its effectiveness for hair loss conditions.. Since Alopecia Areata may resolve spontaneously with no treatment in most cases, The few reports of the recovery of alopecia areata after PRP treatment may simply be reflecting the spontaneous regression of the disease. ...

Published May 11 2015. Many people with Graves Disease and Hashimotos Thyroiditis experience hair loss. In most cases the imbalance of thyroid hormone is responsible for the hair loss. However, other causes of hair loss include sex hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and certain medications. However, another possibility is a condition called alopecia areata, which is commonly found in people with autoimmune thyroid conditions.. So what is alopecia areata? This is an autoimmune condition which involves damage of the hair follicles. This condition usually begins with one or two patches of hair loss on the scalp, although hair loss can also occur in the beard, eyebrows, arms, and legs (1). Some people will experience hair loss of the entire scalp, which is known as alopecia totalis (2). If it involves the whole body then this is known as alopecia universalis (2). For many people the hair will eventually grow back, although this isnt the case with everyone.. What Causes Alopecia Areata? ...
Alopecia areata is characterized by patchy scalp hair loss which occasionally affects every hair follicle on the scalp (alopecia totalis), or body (alopecia universalis).. The disease usually occurs between the the ages of adolescence and 30 years, but can appear at any age, affecting both sexes equally. Alopecia Areata has a rapid onset but tends to spontaneously reverse.. The cause of Alopecia Areata is unclear, however, genetic factors, auto-immune mechanisms, and the occurrence of stressful and/or emotional problems shortly before the hair loss are all thought to influence the condition.. Treatments for the disease include topical sensitizers, steroid shots, squaric acid dibutyl ester, diphencyprone, and hypnotherapy.. ...
Alopecia areata - hair loss which starts with a bald patch. Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease where the body turns against itself. In about a third of cases, the first bald patch clears up quickly and never returns. In those less lucky, the condition develops into alopecia totalis where all scalp hair is lost, sometimes along with the eyebrows and eyelashes. A fifth of all cases become alopecia universalis where all hair on the entire body falls out. Other people are plagued by alopecia areata all their lives, with patches occurring and reoccurring again and again.. ...

Alopecia areata is one of the most common cause of non-scarring alopecia. The pathogenesis is still unclear, however, it is believed to be an autoimmune disease. This disease is not a life-threatening condition but it has a significant psychological impact to patients quality of life.. Many triggers have been proposed such as viral infection, stress and neurologic factors. There are many studies show the correlation between disease activities and neurotransmitters level. Substance P and calcitonin gene-related peptide play major role in early stage of disease. These substances cause imbalance of CD4/CD8 lymphocyte in pathologic site and loss of immune privilege of hair follicles.. The conventional treatment of alopecia areata with intralesional corticosteroid injection might treat the end of pathogenesis process.. There is no therapeutic intervention for the origin of disease. Fortunately, botulinum toxin A could be a novel treatment of alopecia areata. The botulinum toxin A demonstrates ...
Ive shared my thoughts as well as previous data on these new so called JAK inhibitors (Ruxolitinib and Tofacitinib) in the treatment of alopecia areata. I was interested to read this morning a study showing benefit of ruxolitinib at a dose of 20 mg twice daily in a 35 year old man with two autoimmune diseases - vitiligo and alopecia areata. Hair growth started after 4 weeks and was quite significant by 3 months. Ruxolitinib is an oral medication that is FDA approved for treatment of bone marrow cancer known as myelofibrosis. The drug inhibits a pathway within cells known as the JANUS KINASE pathway and ruxolitinib specifically inhibits Jak 1 and Jak2. Tofacitinib, which is closely related compound and also benefits some patients with alopecia areata, is an inhibitor of Jak 1 and Jak 3. ...

This is really our first complete human study and the results really have been quite astounding compared to the previously available treatments Alopecia areata is an autoimmune form of hair loss where the body attacks the hair follicles and it begins to fall out We enrolled patients with at least thirty percent hair loss and we felt this was a good threshold because we wanted to capture those patients who really were very significantly affected by their hair loss And we found that 9 out of 12 patients had at least 50% regrowth So the genetic studies that weve been working on in the lab for the past five or so years were really critical in pointing for the first time at a potential pathway to target for alopecia areata So, unexpectedly, the JAK signaling pathway really emerged as a targetable pathway for this disease directly from our genetic studies In alopecia areata the hair follicle is quietened by the inflammatory response right around the hair follicle and so the JAK inhibitors block the ...
Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune skin resulting in hair loss on the scalp, face and sometimes in other hair bearing body parts. It is an autoimmune disorder in which the patients immune system starts attacking the patients hair follicles. It presents in majority of cases as localised patches of non scarring hair loss.. In most cases alopecia areata is inherited. It is sometimes associated with other autoimmune diseases such as thyroid disease, vitiligo, lupus , rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis. It can be triggered by viral infections, trauma, hormonal changes and emotional or physical stress.. All age groups, both sexes and all races can be affected. It starts in childhood in about 50% of affected cases. About 80% of the cases present before the age of 40. Severe disease is associated with young age, existing history of atopic dermatitis and chromosomal abnormalities like Down syndrome.. There are different types of alopecia areata.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Vitiligo and alopecia areata are common, disfiguring skin diseases. Treatment options are limited and include nontargeted approaches, such as corticosteroids, topical calcineurin inhibitors, narrow band ultraviolet B phototherapy, and other immune-modifying agents. The purpose of this article is to review shared, novel mechanisms between vitiligo and alopecia areata, as well as discuss how they inform the development of future targeted treatments. RECENT FINDINGS: Vitiligo and alopecia areata are both autoimmune diseases, and striking similarities in pathogenesis have been identified at the level of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Increased reactive oxygen species and high cellular stress level have been suggested as the initiating trigger of the innate immune system in both diseases, and genome-wide association studies have implicated risk alleles that influence both innate and adaptive immunity. Most importantly, mechanistic studies in mouse models of vitiligo and
Alopecia Areata is caused when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. The condition is not typically permanent and the reasons for this arent actually clear.

Finding Best Homeopathic Medicine For Alopecia Areata: Clinical Update and Review of Repertory Rubrics. Why Homeopathic Treatment is Best For Alopecia Areata? Best Homeopathic Medicine for Treating Alopecia Areata?
Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune non-scarring hair loss disorder. AA can be acute, recurrent, or chronic. Current therapeutic options for AA are limited, and there is no effective prevention for recurrent AA. We have previously shown a correlation between the expression of HSP70 (HSPA1A/B), a heat shock protein involved in the inflammatory response, and the onset of AA in the C3H/HeJ mouse model. In this study, we tested the effects of quercetin, a bioflavonoid with anti-inflammatory properties, on AA development and HSP70 expression in the C3H/HeJ model. Mice with spontaneous AA were treated with subcutaneous quercetin or sham injections. Hair regrowth was observed in lesional areas in all the quercetin-treated mice, but in none of the sham-treated mice. In addition, non-alopecic C3H/HeJ mice were heat-treated to induce alopecia, along with quercetin or sham injections. Whereas 24% of the heat-treated mice with sham injections developed alopecia, none of the mice receiving quercetin injections did
Alopecia has found its way back into the news again lately. Maybe that should be no surprise given that September is National Alopecia Areata Awareness Month - Certainly anything that can be done to raise awareness of this challenging condition can only be good and is worthy of our support.. So what exactly is Alopecia? The word translates literally into hair loss, so as you might imagine it is a broad church with a range of versions and causes. In fact, Androgenetic Alopecia is the technical name for male pattern hair loss - which means that at some point in their lives the majority of men will endure a personal relationship with Alopecia. But there is no doubt the condition is better known for the aggressive version with a sudden onset, Alopecia Areata. The sufferer will experience patches, usually circular, of scalp randomly appearing on their head - often associated with stress it is easy to imagine how this must exacerbate an already difficult situation, particularly for a child. Not least ...
I have never been fully educated about what I have. My parents dont understand it either. At first when I found out what I was suffering from my mother and I tried everything we could, at one point I was getting 60 shots of steroids in the scalp. Back about three years ago, I gave up going to all the different Doctor appointments. By doing that I was hoping that my Alopecia areata would run its course and my hair would just grow back and stay for good.. Now That I have been doing this research on it and finding out that I am not alone with this. Im going to do something about my disease and hopefully find something that will help. I already know that there is no cure but Im sure there are some kind of pills that may help. Its worth trying anything to get my hair back.

In about 50% of cases, hair will grow again within a year without any treatment. The longer the time period of hair loss, the less likelihood that the hair will grow again.. Patients with Alopecia areata are treated with either immune-modulating therapies, such as topical immunotherapy, glucocorticoids, or biologic-response modifiers like minoxidil, or anthralin, ,. Hair growth is triggered by these treatments but hair loss may not be prevented and probably the course of the disease is not influenced. Treatment may take months or years. The choice of therapy is dependent chiefly upon the patients age and the extent of the hair loss. Mild cases of hair loss respond excellently to treatment. However, in individuals with complete loss of hair, no treatment works. Hair follicles are not destroyed in patients with alopecia areata, and the potential for regrowth always remains.. Role of diet in preventing hair loss:. New hiar growth stimulation using natural remedies is only one part of treating and ...

N2 - Natural killer (NK) cells have become a recent focus of interest in alopecia areata (AA) research. To further investigate their role in an established mouse model of AA, lesional skin from older C3H/HeJ mice with AA was grafted to young C3H/HeJ female mice, and NK cells were depleted by continuous administration of rabbit anti-asialo GM1. As expected, this significantly reduced the number of pure NK cells in murine skin, as assessed by NKp46 quantitative immunohistochemistry. Quite unexpectedly, however, the onset of hair loss in C3H/HeJ mice was accelerated, rather than retarded. NK cell depletion was accompanied by a significant increase in the number of perifollicular ...
