Both atopic dermatitis (AD) and psoriasis are characterized by complex inflammatory circuits that may be regulated through “feed-forward” mechanisms in the epidermis that amplify cellular immune responses through production of keratinocyte-derived cytokines and inflammatory mediators. IL-17C is a unique cytokine that is produced by keratinocytes and that is involved in such synergistic loops that may be responsible for amplifying the inflammation in both diseases. This may ultimately lead to induction of S100As and other molecules that accompany epidermal hyperplasia.

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. Total glucosides of peony (TGP) have been widely used for the treatment of psoriasis. The present study aimed to ...

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...
