Many Moisturizers Aren't What They Claim to Be

WEDNESDAY, Sept. 6, 2017 -- Many skin moisturizers that claim to be fragrance-free or hypoallergenic are not, and may aggravate skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema, a new study says. Northwestern University researchers examined the top 100...

Phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) is overactive in patients with chronic relapsing inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis (PS) and atopic dermatitis (AD)/eczema. PDE4 regulates pro-inflammatory cytokines/chemokine production by degrading cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) that activates protein kinase A, which in turn represses NF κB-driven proinflammatory cytokine/chemokine expression. Here we report results from a single center clinical trial of pediatric patients suffering from mild to severe AD/eczema demonstrating that a topical East Indian Sandalwood oil (EISO) formulation is well-tolerated and significantly improved s ymptoms.

AbstractProteases and their inhibitors play an important role in epidermal homeostasis. Their imbalance contributes to severe skin diseases. SPINK7 is a member of the SPINK protease inhibitor family and has been described so far as a cancer-related gene in the esophagus. Herein, we describe for the first time its expression in healthy human skin. Moreover, SPINK7 is up-regulated in inflammatory skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema as demonstrated by immunohistochemistry, though real-time PCR analyses revealed no significant up-regulation. In cultured keratinocytes, SPINK7 mRNA expression was up-regulated by IL-17A toget...

A half‐space electromagnetic model of human skin over the band 30–300 GHz was constructed and used to model radiometric emissivity. The model showed that the radiometric emissivity rose from 0.4 to 0.8 over this band, with emission being localized to a layer approximately one millimeter deep in the skin. Simulations of skin with differing water contents associated with psoriasis, eczema, malignancy, and thermal burn wounds indicated radiometry could be used as a non‐contact technique to detect and monitor these conditions. The skin emissivity of a sample of 30 healthy volunteers, measured using a 95&thinsp...

AbstractSkin barrier structure and function is essential to human health. Hitherto unrecognized functions of epidermal keratinocytes show that the skin plays an important role in adapting whole-body physiology to changing environments, including the capacity to produce a wide variety of hormones, neurotransmitters and cytokine that can potentially influence whole-body states, and quite possibly, even emotions. Skin microbiota play an integral role in the maturation and homeostatic regulation of keratinocytes and host immune networks with systemic implications. As our primary interface with the external environment, the bio...

Activation of the HMGB1‑TLR4‑NF‑κB pathway may occur in patients with atopic eczema. Mol Med Rep. 2017 Jul 06;: Authors: Wang Y, Weng H, Song JF, Deng YH, Li S, Liu HB Abstract High mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) has been reported to serve important roles in various pathological conditions. Toll‑like receptor 4 (TLR4), as one of the HMGB1 receptors, has been reported to be involved in the development of certain inflammatory diseases by activating nuclear factor NF‑κ‑B (NF‑κB). However, there are few studies investigating the effects of HMGB1, TLR4 and NF‑κB on...
