Itch is defined as an unpleasant sensation that evokes a desire to scratch. Recently, a surprising diversity of the sensory and spinal cord dorsal horn neurons that specifically process pruritic stimuli has been discovered. Despite this knowledge, our understandings of supraspinal mechanisms that are engaged in the itch processing are largely unknown. Here we took an unbiased approach using immediate early gene (cFos) mapping for precise dissection of brain circuits that mediate itch processing.

The treatment blocks some of the mechanisms involved in the disease. In a clinical trial conducted in Europe, researchers observed 109 patients with moderate‐to‐severe atopic dermatitis. The patients received dupilumab over 12 weeks...

The Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) ion channel is expressed in nociceptors where, when activated by chemical or thermal stimuli, it functions as an important transducer of painful and itch-related stimuli. Although the interaction of TRPV1 with proteins that regulate its function has been previously explored, their modulation by...
