All forms of dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa result from mutations in COLLAGEN TYPE VII, a major component fibrils of BASEMENT MEMBRANE and EPIDERMIS.
Antimicrobial cationic peptides with a highly conserved amino terminal cathelin-like domain and a more variable carboxy terminal domain. They are initially synthesized as preproproteins and then cleaved. They are expressed in many tissues of humans and localized to EPITHELIAL CELLS. They kill nonviral pathogens by forming pores in membranes.
Agents that suppress immune function by one of several mechanisms of action. Classical cytotoxic immunosuppressants act by inhibiting DNA synthesis. Others may act through activation of T-CELLS or by inhibiting the activation of HELPER CELLS. While immunosuppression has been brought about in the past primarily to prevent rejection of transplanted organs, new applications involving mediation of the effects of INTERLEUKINS and other CYTOKINES are emerging.
Small cationic peptides that are an important component, in most species, of early innate and induced defenses against invading microbes. In animals they are found on mucosal surfaces, within phagocytic granules, and on the surface of the body. They are also found in insects and plants. Among others, this group includes the DEFENSINS, protegrins, tachyplesins, and thionins. They displace DIVALENT CATIONS from phosphate groups of MEMBRANE LIPIDS leading to disruption of the membrane.
Inflammation of the OUTER EAR including the external EAR CANAL, cartilages of the auricle (EAR CARTILAGE), and the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.

A species of parasitic nematodes widely distributed throughout central Africa and also found in northern South America, southern Mexico, and Guatemala. Its intermediate host and vector is the blackfly or buffalo gnat.
Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.
Mammalian pigment cells that produce MELANINS, pigments found mainly in the EPIDERMIS, but also in the eyes and the hair, by a process called melanogenesis. Coloration can be altered by the number of melanocytes or the amount of pigment produced and stored in the organelles called MELANOSOMES. The large non-mammalian melanin-containing cells are called MELANOPHORES.
Treatment of disease by exposure to light, especially by variously concentrated light rays or specific wavelengths.
Peptides and proteins found in BODILY SECRETIONS and BODY FLUIDS that are PROTEASE INHIBITORS. They play a role in INFLAMMATION, tissue repair and innate immunity (IMMUNITY, INNATE) by inhibiting endogenous proteinases such as those produced by LEUKOCYTES and exogenous proteases such as those produced by invading microorganisms.

Mice bearing mutant genes which are phenotypically expressed in the animals.
Any of the processes by which nuclear, cytoplasmic, or intercellular factors influence the differential control (induction or repression) of gene action at the level of transcription or translation.
Linear furanocoumarins which are found in many PLANTS, especially UMBELLIFERAE and RUTACEAE, as well as PSORALEA from which they were originally discovered. They can intercalate DNA and, in an UV-initiated reaction of the furan portion, alkylate PYRIMIDINES, resulting in PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS.
A circumscribed benign epithelial tumor projecting from the surrounding surface; more precisely, a benign epithelial neoplasm consisting of villous or arborescent outgrowths of fibrovascular stroma covered by neoplastic cells. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Abnormal fluid accumulation in TISSUES or body cavities. Most cases of edema are present under the SKIN in SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

C5a receptor and interleukin-6 are expressed in tissue macrophages and stimulated keratinocytes but not in pulmonary and intestinal epithelial cells. (1/2324)

The anaphylatoxin derived from the fifth component of the human complement system (C5a) mediates its effects by binding to a single high-affinity receptor (C5aR/CD88), the expression of which has been traditionally thought to be restricted to granulocytes, monocytes, macrophages (Mphi), and cell lines of myeloid origin. Recent immunohistochemical data suggested that human bronchial and alveolar cells express C5aR as well. To reexamine the tissue distribution of human C5aR expression, transcription of the C5aR gene was investigated in normal and pathologically affected human lung (bronchopneumonia, tuberculosis), large intestine (acute appendicitis, Crohn's disease), and skin (pyogenic granuloma, lichen planus) using in situ hybridization. In contrast to previous evidence, C5aR mRNA could not be detected in pulmonary or intestinal epithelial cells, whereas keratinocytes in inflamed but not in normal skin revealed detectable levels of C5aR transcripts. Additionally, it could be documented that only migrating Mphi express C5aR mRNA, whereas sessile Mphi in normal tissues and epithelioid/multinucleated Mphi found in granulomatous lesions do not. Because C5a has been demonstrated to upregulate the expression of interleukin (IL)-6 in human monocytes, we also studied IL-6 gene transcription in parallel to the C5aR. IL-6 mRNA was detectable in many tissue Mphi. Surprisingly, a tight co-expression of C5aR and IL-6 mRNA was observed in keratinocytes from lesions of pyogenic granuloma and lichen planus. These results point to an as yet unknown role for C5a in the pathogenesis of skin disorders beyond its well-defined function as a chemoattractant and activator of leukocytes.  (+info)

Analysis of Chinese herbal creams prescribed for dermatological conditions. (2/2324)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Chinese herbal creams used for the treatment of dermatological conditions contain steroids. DESIGN: 11 herbal creams obtained from patients attending general and paediatric dermatology outpatient clinics were analysed with high resolution gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. SETTING: Departments of dermatology and clinical biochemistry. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Presence of steroid. RESULTS: Eight creams contained dexamethasone at a mean concentration of 456 micrograms/g (range 64 to 1500 micrograms/g). All were applied to areas of sensitive skin such as face and flexures. CONCLUSION: Greater regulation needs to be imposed on Chinese herbalists to prevent illegal and inappropriate prescribing of potent steroids.  (+info)

Hyper-IgE syndrome with recurrent infections--an autosomal dominant multisystem disorder. (3/2324)

BACKGROUND: The hyper-IgE syndrome with recurrent infections is a rare immunodeficiency characterized by recurrent skin and pulmonary abscesses and extremely elevated levels of IgE in serum. Associated facial and skeletal features have been recognized, but their frequency is unknown, and the genetic basis of the hyper-IgE syndrome is poorly understood. METHODS: We studied 30 patients with the hyper-IgE syndrome and 70 of their relatives. We took histories, reviewed records, performed physical and dental examinations, took anthropometric measurements, and conducted laboratory studies. RESULTS: Nonimmunologic features of the hyper-IgE syndrome were present in all patients older than eight years. Seventy-two percent had the previously unrecognized feature of failure or delay of shedding of the primary teeth owing to lack of root resorption. Common findings among patients were recurrent fractures (in 57 percent of patients), hyperextensible joints (in 68 percent), and scoliosis (in 76 percent of patients 16 years of age or older). The classic triad of abscesses, pneumonia, and an elevated IgE level was identified in 77 percent of all patients and in 85 percent of those older than eight. In 6 of 23 adults (26 percent), IgE levels declined over time and came closer to or fell within the normal range. Autosomal dominant transmission of the hyper-IgE syndrome was found, but with variable expressivity. Of the 27 relatives at risk for inheriting the hyper-IgE syndrome, 10 were fully affected, 11 were unaffected, and 6 had combinations of mild immunologic, dental, and skeletal features of the hyper-IgE syndrome. CONCLUSIONS: The hyper-IgE syndrome is a multisystem disorder that affects the dentition, the skeleton, connective tissue, and the immune system. It is inherited as a single-locus autosomal dominant trait with variable expressivity.  (+info)

Epidemiology and prevention of group A streptococcal infections: acute respiratory tract infections, skin infections, and their sequelae at the close of the twentieth century. (4/2324)

Infections of the upper respiratory tract and skin due to group A Streptococcus are common, and the organism is highly transmissible. In industrialized countries and to some extent in developing countries, control efforts continue to emphasize that group A streptococcal pharyngitis should be properly diagnosed and appropriately treated. In developing countries and in indigenous populations where the burden of group A streptococcal diseases appears greatest, the epidemiology is less completely defined and may differ from that in industrialized countries. There is a need for accurately collected epidemiological data from developing countries, which may also further clarify the pathogenesis of group A streptococcal infections and their sequelae. While proper treatment of group A streptococcal pharyngitis continues to be essential in all populations, it may be appropriate in developing countries to consider additional strategies to reduce rates of pyoderma.  (+info)

Delayed osteon formation in long-bone diaphysis of an 11-year-old giant cow with dermal dysplasia. (5/2324)

The transverse sections of radius diaphysis in an 11-year-old giant Holstein cow with dermal dysplasia of a collagen disorder-related skin fragility (Cow 1), probably based on increasing turnover of the dermal collagen as reported previously, were morphologically and physico-chemically investigated. Cow 1 had about one and a half times as much as the body weight of normal Holstein cows, aged 5 to 6.5 years with stabilized growth. The bone samples were compared with those of a 12-year-old Holstein cow as controls (Cow 2). It has been reported that the long-bone diaphysis of young calves and some herbivorous dinosaurs are occupied with laminar bone showing a concentric appositional formation, and that such a laminar bone is characteristically seen during the growing period of some farm animals and large dogs that show very rapid growth rates. Cow 1 had a smaller number of osteons than Cow 2 in the outer-half layer of the diaphysis, and showed an intermediate type between Cow 2 and a 1-year-old Holstein ox in the entire layers, although their bone volumes were similar among them. There were no significant differences in Ca and P concentrations and the Vickers microhardness values between the bone matrix of Cow 1 and Cow 2. The bone-collagen fibrils of Cow 1 showed uneven diameters and a disordered arrangement. Thus, there may be some relation in collagen formation between the bone matrix of Cow 1 and the dermis. From the remaining volume of laminar bone, Cow 1, aged 11 years, had probably shown growth until quite recently, so that we consider that Cow 1 became a giant animal, in the same way as some herbivorous dinosaurs.  (+info)

Depletion of cutaneous peptidergic innervation in HIV-associated xerosis. (6/2324)

Severe xerosis occurs in approximately 20% of human immunodeficiency virus seropositive patients. Changes in cutaneous innervation have been found in various inflammatory skin diseases and in xerotic skin in familial amyloid. We have therefore carried out a quantitative examination of the cutaneous peptidergic innervation in human immunodeficiency virus-associated xerosis. Immunohistochemistry and image analysis quantitation were used to compare total cutaneous innervation (protein gene product 9.5), calcitonin gene-related peptide, substance P, and vasoactive intestinal peptide peptidergic fibers, at two sites in the skin of human immunodeficiency virus-associated xerosis patients (upper arm, n = 12; upper leg, n = 11) and site-matched seronegative controls (upper arm, n = 10; upper leg, n = 10). Measurement of lengths of fibers of each type was carried out for each subject in the epidermis and papillary dermis, and around the sweat glands. Immunostained mast cells in these areas were counted. Epidermal integrity and maturation were assessed by immunostaining for involucrin. There were significant (Mann-Whitney U test; p < 0.02) decreases in total lengths of protein gene product 9.5 fibers in both epidermis/papillary dermis and sweat gland fields; of calcitonin gene-related peptide innervation in the epidermis/papillary dermis; and of substance P innervation of the sweat glands. There were no differences in the distribution of mast cells, or in the epidermal expression of involucrin. Depletion of the calcitonin gene-related peptide innervation may affect the nutrient blood supply of the upper dermis, and the integrity and function of basal epidermis and Langerhans cells. Diminished substance P innervation of the sweat glands may affect their secretory activity. Both of these changes may be implicated in the development of xerosis.  (+info)

Faecal composition after surgery for Hirschsprung's disease. (7/2324)

Diarrhoea and perianal excoriation occur frequently after the endorectal pull-through operation for Hirschsprung's disease. A new method of faecal analysis was performed on 3-day stool collections in 17 postoperative Hirschsprung patients and in 14 normal children, in order to define the faecal abnormality and to establish the cause of perianal excoriation in these patients. Loose stools in postoperative patients were deficient in dry solid content and contained an excess of extractable faecal water. This also had a raised electrolyte concentration, particularly with respect to sodium. Total daily output of faecal water was normal. Formed stools from postoperative patients were also deficient in drysolids but had a normal extractable water content. Excess extractable faecal water, the main abnormality of loose stools in these patients, is the result of abnormal water absorption from the distal colon. Perianal excoriation in these patients is most closely associated with the concentration of sodium in faecal water.  (+info)

Inflammatory pseudotumor in a cat with cutaneous mycobacteriosis. (8/2324)

A 5-year-old, castrated male, domestic Shorthair Cat had an ulcerated mass with fistulous tracts on the left hind paw. Homogeneous tan tissue diffusely infiltrated the dermis and subcutis of the paw and extended proximally so that, short of amputation, complete excision was not feasible. Biopsy specimens consisted of granulation tissue with marked proliferation of spindle cells. Neutrophils and histiocytic cells were scattered among the spindle cells. The histiocytic cells had abundant foamy or vacuolated cytoplasm, but features of granulomatous inflammation, such as epithelioid macrophages or granuloma formation, were not observed. The initial impression was inflammatory granulation tissue, but the degree of fibroplasia prompted inclusion of fibrosarcoma in the differential diagnosis. Cutaneous mycobacteriosis was diagnosed when numerous acid-fast bacteria were identified with Kinyoun's stain; Mycobacterium avium was subsequently cultured. The cat was euthanatized because of lack of response to enrofloxacin therapy. At necropsy, lesions were localized to the hind limb. Not only is mycobacteriosis an uncommon cause of cutaneous masses in cats, but this case was unusual because of the lack of granuloma formation and the similarity of the mass to a spindle cell tumor.  (+info)

Dermatologic disease, although seldom life threatening, can be extremely disfiguring and interfere with the quality of life. In addition, as opposed to other organs, just the aging of skin and its adnexal structure the hair follicle can result in cosmetic concerns that affect most of us. The articles in this dermatology Review Series demonstrate recent progress in understanding the cell biology and molecular pathophysiology of the epidermis and hair follicles, which harbor keratinocyte and melanocyte stem cells. They reveal a dynamic relationship between research and clinical care: knowledge of dermatologic disease has facilitated the understanding of the biology of the epidermis and, in turn, progress in basic science has informed our understanding of disease. This type of synergy is a profound strength of clinical research of the type that the JCI is dedicated to publishing. ...
Cordel N, Chosidow O, Frances C; Service de Medecine Interne, CHU Pitie-Salpetriere, Paris. Since the discovery of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in 1989, many cutaneous disorders have been observed in patients suffering from chronic HCV infection.. The relationship between HCV infection and cryoglobulinemia or porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is now clearly established, but the link between HCV and other dermatoses is still controversial.. This review of the main dermatologic disorders, directly or indirectly related to HCV infection, lead to conclude that HCV markers have to be investigated systematically in case of cryoglobulinemia, PCT or pruritus.. In other dermatologic disorders, HCV serology will be necessary only in case of risk factors for HCV infection, or presence of abnormal liver function tests.. PMID: 10761562, UI: 20224628. ...

For most common skin conditions, including eczema, athletes foot and verrucas, swimming is absolutely fine and not harmful to your skin.
The development of skin problems can have a genetic, microbial or environmental origin. Skin conditions may also result from an abnormal response to external irritants such as soaps or allergens.. It occurs due to an excessive reaction by the bodys immune system to specific stimuli (allergies, for example), if there is contact with toxins or irritating substances, and finally because of genetic inheritance from family members.. Other factors that encourage skin issues are lack of sleep, and occasional outbreaks from numbing creams and ointments used to relieve itching.. Its vital to take care of your skin by washing it daily with gentle soaps, moisturizing after you shower, and regularly using protective sunscreen on exposed areas when you go outside. It is also advisable to seek online doctor consultation if the condition worsens.. 5 Common Skin Problems And Their Treatments. Countless skin conditions affect us.

Colchicine is a uricosuric agent used in the treatment of several systemic and dermatologic conditions. Its medicinal value has been reported since the first century where it was extracted from the autumn crocus plant. The drug is rapidly absorbed, metabolized in the liver and excreted mainly in the feces. Initial effect can take anywhere between 12 to 24 hours with its peak anti-inflammatory effect occurring within 24 to 48 hours.. Mechanism: Since colchicine is used for both systemic and dermatologic disease, it has been shown to possess multiple different mechanisms. The medication is mostly used for its anti - inflammatory processes. Colchicine binds proteins in microtubules of neutrophils and prevents migration into areas of inflammation. It also prevents the release of inflammatory glycoprotein from phagocytes. Additionally, the medication inhibits leukocyte migration by interfering with inflammasome complex assembly in neutrophils and monocytes, preventing the activation of interleukin-1. ...

The skin produces its own antibiotics - a protective layer of skin microbes which maintain a slightly acidic pH or acid mantle. The natural fats the skin produces, called lipids, create this protective acid mantle. However, these lipids can be lost due to excess water exposure, soaps, detergents and antibacterial washes. Loss of pH may lead to loss of skin integrity, breaking down the tight junctions between the cells opening minute cracks for unwelcome bacteria to enter. Bacteria causing infection include Propionibacterium acnes, Demodex folliculorium and D. brevis, as well as Staphylococcus aureus. Skin health goes deeper than the surface. Healthy bowels = healthy skin. If the bowels are not eliminating wastes properly, then the body seeks to get rid of the toxins elsewhere. You guessed it - the skin. After all, it is a large organ. Our waste removal systems must be clear and functioning well in order to ensure clear, healthy skin.. As mentioned above, our skin also responds to stress - both ...

Herbal products have steadily gained popularity as alternatives to conventional, synthetic medications and are sought after by patients for the treatment of chronic dermatologic diseases and for cosmeceutical use. The production and distribution of botanical extracts is largely unregulated and therefore extensive research into their mechanism of action, safety, physiologic stability, and optimal dosing has been overlooked. One of the major pathways through which natural supplements, particularly polyphenols, act is via inhibition of oxidative stress and its downstream mediators. Endogenous defense mechanisms are inadequate to combat oxidative stress and therefore dietary and/or topical supplementation with polyphenols are an important complementary preventative and therapeutic strategy. This review focuses on the molecular targets of common polyphenols used in topical preparations, particularly soy, green tea, oats, curcumin, and silymarin. Continued research into bioavailability and function of these

Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis, also known as nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy, is a debilitating disorder affecting the skin. The condition affects both men and women of every age, from infants to the elderly, but typically occurs in individuals that are middle aged. The condition can affect individuals of every ethnicity and has been found mainly in Europe, Asia, and North America. The condition is considered rare, with less than 300 confirmed cases worldwide.. Currently, all cases of NSF/NFD occur in patients in an advanced stage of kidney disease. None of the cases has occurred prior to 1997 and no evidence exists to link the condition to a microorganism, to an ingested medication, or to dialysis. The length of time that the individual has been suffering from kidney disease also appears to not be a factor in the development of NSF/NFD as it can occur in the earlier stages of kidney disease as well as in individuals that have been suffering from kidney disease for years.. Recent reports have ...

Background In the Ganges Delta, chronic arsenic poisoning is a health concern affecting millions of people who rely on groundwater as their potable water source. The prevalence of anemia is also high in this region, particularly among women. Moreover, arsenic is known to affect heme synthesis and erythrocytes and the risk of arsenic-induced skin lesions appears to differ by sex. Methods We conducted a case-control study in 147 arsenic-exposed Bangladeshi women to assess the association between anemia and arsenic-induced skin lesions. Results We observed that the odds of arsenic-related skin lesions were approximately three times higher among women who were anemic (hemoglobin , 120 g/L) compared to women with normal hemoglobin levels [Odds Ratio (OR) = 3.32, 95 % Confidence Intervals (CI): 1.29, 8.52] after adjusting for arsenic levels in drinking water and other covariates. Furthermore, 75 % of the women with anemia had adequate iron stores (serum ferritin ≥12 μg/L), suggesting that the ...

Pemphigus is a group of five autoimmune skin diseases characterized by vesicles and bullae (large and small blisters) in the mouth and at mucocutaneous junctions (the junctions between skin and mucosal tissues). Commonly affected areas include the eyelids, lips, nostrils, and anus.. Pemphigus Foliaceus (PF) - The term means leaf-like pemphigus. This is the most common autoimmune skin disease of cats. With PM, the patient develops crusts (scabs) and ulcers around the eyes, ears, footpads, groin, and bridge of the nose. In cats, lesions also develop at the toenail beds creating crusty sore feet. PM is rarely found in the mouth or at mucocutaneous junctions. It usually appears suddenly without a recognized cause, but in some cases it may be drug induced or can be the result of years of chronic skin disease.. Pemphigus Vulgaris (PV) - The term means common pemphigus and it is the most frequent form of pemphigus in humans. Fluid filled blisters called vesicles form in and around the mouth, ...

Dermatological conditions are one of the most common types of disorders worldwide, and approximately one-third of the US population suffers from at least one active skin condition.For the past decades, the majority of the dermatology market has remained saturated with established products. However, the clinical and commercial success of biologics in the treatment of psoriasis, as well as advancements in the understanding of the disease pathways of many dermatological conditions, have led to a renewed interest from pharmaceutical companies in the dermatology market, and subsequently the emergence of an innovative pipeline.. This report covers all dermatological disorders, but there is a particular focus on three key diseases: atopic dermatitis, acne vulgaris and psoriasis, as these conditions have the highest prevalence and the largest pipeline. The global dermatology market was valued at $20.0 billion in 2015, and is projected to grow at a considerable Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of ...
Pressure ulcers, also known as pressure sores, bedsores, and decubitus ulcers, are localized injuries to the skin and/or underlying tissue that usually occur over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear and/or friction. The most common sites are the skin overlying the sacrum, coccyx, heels or the hips, but other sites such as the elbows, knees, ankles or the back of the cranium can be affected.. Pressure ulcers occur due to pressure (or shear) applied to soft tissue, resulting in completely or partially obstructed blood flow in the region, which causes inadequate blood supply (ischemia), followed by reperfusion injury when circulation is re-established in that tissue after mobilization. Like in other Ischemia/Reperfusion settings, Programmed Cell Death events are triggered in the involved cells, leading to skin lesions. Pressure ulcers most commonly develop in individuals with compromised mobility, such as those being bedridden or confined to a ...

Inflammatory skin disorders that cause serious deterioration of the quality of life have become one of the major public concerns. Despite their significance, there is no fundamental cure to date. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) possess unique immunomodulatory properties which make them a promising tool for the treatment of various inflammatory diseases. Our recent preclinical and clinical studies have shown that MSCs can be successfully used for the treatment of atopic dermatitis (AD), one of the major inflammatory skin diseases. This observation along with similar reports from other groups revealed the efficacy and underlying mechanisms of MSCs in inflammatory dermatosis. In addition, it has been proposed that cell priming or gene transduction can be novel strategies for the development of next-generation high-efficacy MSCs for treating inflammatory skin diseases. We discuss here existing evidence that demonstrates the regulatory properties of MSCs on immune responses under inflammatory conditions.
Although some symptoms of dermatologic diseases, such as pruritus and pain, can be subjectively assessed only by patients, the most commonly used endpoints in dermatology drug research traditionally have been clinician-reported outcomes. Research has found that patient-reported outcomes (PROs) were included in only one-quarter of 125 trials conducted between 1994 and 2001. Our objective was to characterize the impact of PROs in dermatology drug development from the patient, prescriber, regulator, payer, and manufacturer perspectives using a case study approach.
Research in recent years has shown that sphingolipids are essential signalling molecules for the proper biological and structural functioning of cells. Long-term studies on the metabolism of sphingolipids have provided evidence for their role in the pathogenesis of a number of diseases. As many inflammatory diseases, such as lysosomal storage disorders and some dermatologic diseases, including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and ichthyoses, are associated with the altered composition and metabolism of sphingolipids, more studies precisely determining the responsibilities of these compounds for disease states are required to develop novel pharmacological treatment opportunities. It is worth emphasizing that knowledge from the study of inflammatory metabolic diseases and especially the possibility of their treatment may lead to insight into related metabolic pathways, including those involved in the formation of the epidermal barrier and providing new approaches towards workable therapies.

However, for people with kidney problems, getting rid of that gadolinium is easier said than done, and the fallout is Nephrongenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) and a related condition, Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy (NFD). Those who have experienced the painful symptoms of NSF/NFD have likened it to a living hell. Skin begins to darken in color, takes on a shiny tone, and hardens and tightens in a fashion that brings on extreme pain. Joints become painful and results in restricted movement, and damage to the heart and lungs can result. Eyes take on a yellowed, jaundiced look ...

This hyperandrogenism causes skin problems.. Consuming fenugreek leaves or seeds helps in maintaining normal insulin levels as reported by scientific studies. Fenugreek improves glucose tolerance in the body, which helps in weight loss. This weight loss helps to maintain hormone levels to control skin problems such as acne and hair problems such as hirsutism.. Fenugreek seed extract (Furocyst) is a clinically evaluated and patented extract for management of PCOS. During the clinical study, it has been demonstrated by Swaroop A et al. that Furocyst significantly managed glucose levels in the body and also caused significant reduction in the cyst size. This fenugreek seed extract was efficient in maintaining regularity in menstrual cycle of enrolled females. This beneficial effect of fenugreek seed extract also led to pregnancy in some of the female patients. These benefits show that fenugreek might be able to manage skin problems in the PCOS suffering females.. In a clinical study conducted by ...
We found acanthosis nigricans to be associated with having multiple risk factors for type 2 diabetes mellitus in patients aged 7 to 39 years. As the number of these risk factors increased, so did the prevalence of acanthosis nigricans in both children and adults. The positive likelihood ratio of having this dermatologic condition in patients with more than 2 risk factors for type 2 diabetes was 8.3 for ages 7 to 19 years and 4.2 for ages 20 to 39 years.. Most studies have found acanthosis nigricans to be associated with insulin resistance or hyperinsulinemia, major factors in the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes, in a substantial proportion of patients.8,9,11-14,22,23 Although our study did not measure insulin levels, we found that acanthosis nigricans was independently associated with diagnosed type 2 diabetes. Patients with this dermatologic condition were 1.97 times more likely to have type 2 diabetes compared with their counterparts without it, after controlling for age, BMI, and the ...
Psoriasis is one of the most common dermatologic diseases, affecting about 2% of the world population. The rate of psoriasis varies according to age, gender, region and ethnicity. A combination of environmental and genetic factors is thought to be responsible for these differences. It usually occurs before the age of 40, most commonly between the ages of 15 and 25 years; affects equally in men and women. The aetiology of psoriasis is still poorly understood, but there is clearly a genetic predisposition. It has been found in large surveys that one third of patients have a positive family history. Evidence has accumulated and clearly indicating a role of T- cells in the patho- physiology of psoriasis ...
The number of biologicals for the therapy of immunologically mediated diseases is constantly growing. In contrast to other agents that were previously introduced in rheumatologic or dermatologic diseases and only later adopted for the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), the field of IBD was ground breaking for the concept of anti-adhesion blockade. Anti-adhesion antibodies selectively target integrins controlling cell homing to the intestine, which leads to reduction of inflammatory infiltration to the gut in chronic intestinal inflammation. Currently, the anti-α4β7-antibody vedolizumab is successfully used for both Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis worldwide. In this mini-review, we will summarize the fundamental basis of intestinal T cell homing and explain the molecular groundwork underlying current and potential future anti-adhesion therapies. Finally, we will comment on noteworthy clinical aspects of anti-adhesion therapy and give an outlook to the future of anti-integrin
INTRODUCTION. Vitamin A .is important in maintaining normal growth, regulating proliferation and differentiation of epithelial tissues, and maintaining visual and reproductive functions (Goodman, 84). Vitamin A analogs (retinoids) are used in the clinical management of dermatologic diseases such as acne, psoriasis, icthyosis and in oncology. More than 1,500 retinoids have been synthesized in an attempt to separate side effects from clinically desirable therapeutic efficacy (Bollag and Matter, 81; Bollag, 83). The use of vitamin A and retinoids in the United States and other developed countries is increasing. Ingestion of excess nutrients, including megadose supplements, is being encouraged by popular writers such as Linus Pauling (86), Adele Davis (70), and others. The purpose of this paper is to express concern that indiscriminate use of vitamin A during pregnancy could lead to an increased risk of congenital anomalies. A large volume of literature documents the experimental use of these ...

Most often we shrug off skin itches and rashes as an innocent itch which will go away on its own. Sometimes we get lucky as the rash heals itself and sometimes we end up making it worse.. Dermatologists these days encounter various types of skin diseases, with growing advancements in technology, we can treat almost all skin conditions. Some of the severe conditions if cannot be treated can at the least be curbed.. Here is a list of Common Skin conditions that is treated by dermatologists on a daily basis.. Acne: It is a condition of the skin where the sebaceous gland is on overdrive due to hormonal imbalance and stress. The pores of the skin are clogged. It causes pimples, redness, swelling and increased temperature of the skin. It usually affects teenagers and sometimes is also carried on into adulthood.. The medical condition is called Acne Vulgaris and it is mostly seen on the cheeks, forehead, chin , chest and back.. Athletes Foot: It is a fungal infection that affects the in-between of the ...
Atopy can be challenging to diagnose accurately and therefore to treat effectively. Pets with this condition typically present with pruritus, a signalment that can also be caused by other dermatologic conditions such as food allergy and sarcoptic mange; secondary skin infections (e.g., yeast or bacteria) also add to the confusing presentation. Although atopy is commonly associated with IgEantibodies to various environmental allergens (as demonstrated through diagnostic laboratory testing), it is not a universal finding, and this can make definitive diagnosis (and development of allergen-specific immunotherapy) difficult, if not impossible; the diagnosis is sometimes made by ruling out other dermatologic conditions (1-3). These factors, as well as the varying degrees of severity in clinical presentation, make estimating the prevalence of atopy in the pet population difficult. Previously reported prevalence of canine atopy ranges between 3-30%, depending on the study and the population represented ...
All skin diseases fall under the category of Dermatosis. These diseases can be further divided according to their root cause, such as fungal, atopic or allergic. The important factors when determining the cause of a skin disease is the location of the outbreak, the color, size and arrangement of the lesions and any other accompanying symptoms.

This chapter focuses on a group of unrelated bacterial diseases that are rarely encountered in a conventional urban or suburban setting but are acquired after a distinctive environmental exposure, such as saltwater immersion, animal bites, handling of an infected animal carcass, or travel to specific areas around the world. Several of these diseases present primarily as cutaneous disorders with rare systemic involvement (e.g., erysipeloid); others present primarily as systemic disorders with rare cutaneous involvement (e.g., brucellosis). Several of the pathogens can be aerosolized and disseminated for respiratory transmission, naturally or with human intervention. The ease of dissemination and the potential virulence of several organisms make them suitable for intentional spread as biologic weapons. The intentional spread of these diseases is discussed in greater detail in Chapter 213. ...
Acne is a common skin condition caused by inflammation of the hair follicles and oil-producing (sebaceous) glands of the skin. Back to top. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that affects the skin. In its various forms, it may be characterized by itching, swelling, redness, scaly patches, blisters and/or bumps. This most common lesion of the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) is caused by long-term exposure to sunlight (specifically to ultraviolet wavelengths). The skin is organized into two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis, each comprised of specialized cell types that contribute to the unique properties of the layer. The epidermis is composed of keratinocytes in varying states of differentiation and primarily serves a barrier function, preventing water loss and invasion by microbes and toxins. For this reason, supplementation with fish oil and GLA-rich oils has been investigated for treatment of inflammatory skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, and atopic ...

Skin disease usually takes one of two forms: loss of hair or itchiness. Living with an itchy dog is no fun - but being an itchy dog must be worse! Most itchy skin diseases are caused by allergies or parasite infections. As a general rule itchy skins do not resolve without treatment; so if your dog is scratching an early visit to your vet is advisable. Scratching is not normal nor is it a habit.. Hair loss is a less common skin complaint than itchiness. It may be caused by dogs pulling out their own hair when they are scratching or due to their hair simply falling out. Hair loss can be caused by some parasitic diseases but is most commonly caused by a hormonal imbalance. Animals with hormonal problems often have many other clinical problems as well as the hair loss.. Many dogs will develop lumps and bumps on their skin at some point. In most cases these may be nothing to worry about and may be a simple wart or a fatty lump underneath the skin. However, sometimes malignant tumours can develop in ...
The skin is the largest organ of the human body, and its dysfunction is related to many diseases. There is a need to find new potential effective therapies for some skin conditions such as inflammatory diseases, wound healing, or hair restoration. Mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC)-conditioned medium (CM) provides a potential opportunity in the treatment of skin disease. Thus, the objective of this review is to evaluate the uses of MSC-CM for treating skin diseases in both animal and human models. A systematic review was conducted regarding the use of MSC-CM for treating skin conditions. One hundred one studies were analyzed. MSC-CM was evaluated in wound healing (55), hypertrophic scars (9), flap reperfusion (4), hair restoration (15), skin rejuvenation (15), and inflammatory skin diseases (3). MSC-CM was obtained from different MSC sources, mainly adipose tissue, bone marrow, and umbilical cord blood. MSC-CM was tested intravenously, intraperitoneally, subcutaneously, intradermally or intralesionally
