Inhibitory effects of TGP on KGF‑induced hyperproliferation of HaCaT cells via suppression of the p38 MAPK/NF‑κB p65 pathway. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Jun 15;: Authors: Pang W, Qi X, Cao C, Zhang S Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease, primarily caused by overgrowth and abnormal differentiation of epidermal keratinocytes. Studies have suggested that keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) may be involved in the regulation of differentiation and development of keratinocytes.

Abstract: Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is the primary cause of morbidity and non–relapse-related mortality after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. GVHD is classically divided into acute and chronic forms; acute cutaneous GVHD presents as a morbilliform eruption, whereas chronic cutaneous GVHD presents with lichen planus–like or sclerodermoid morphology. Psoriasiform GVHD is a rarely described subtype that is challenging to distinguish clinically from psoriasis. In addition to classic psoriasiform histologic findings, demonstration of an often subtle vacuolar interface dermatitis and lymphocyte sate...

This systematic review presents evidence-based dietary recommendations for adults with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis from the Medical Board of the National Psoriasis Foundation.
Conclusions: There is no significant change in the serum or tissue levels of Th1 and Th2 cytokines with activity or severity of psoriasis.
Conclusions: Amongst the three drugs studied, intramatricial methotrexate injection yielded the most improvement with minimum side effects, results being comparable to intramatricial triamcinolone acetonide injection. Cyclosporine was the least effective drug, with the most side effects. Intramatricial injection therapy is a safe, economical, simple and effective therapeutic modality in the management of nail psoriasis.
