Authors: Tan SP, Brown SB, Griffiths CE, Weller RB, Gibbs NK Abstract Atopic dermatitis (AD), also known as eczema, is one of the most common chronic skin conditions worldwide, affecting up to 16% of children and 10% of adults. It is incurable and has significant psychosocial and economic impacts on the affected individuals. AD etiology has been linked to deficiencies in the skin barrier protein, filaggrin. In mammalian skin, l-histidine is rapidly incorporated into filaggrin. Subsequent filaggrin proteolysis releases l-histidine as an important natural moisturizing factor (NMF). In vitro studies were conducted to ...

Summary A 20‐year‐old woman presented with a 2‐month history of an acute symmetrical eruption, manifesting as asymptomatic ill‐defined erythematous macules and hyperkeratotic papules on the palms. The patient was a renal transplant recipient, and the lesions had developed 2 months post‐transplantation. Histologically, the eruption shared features of a reactive inflammatory condition called papular eruption of atypical CD8+ lymphocytes as well as primary cutaneous acral CD8+ T‐cell lymphoma (a provisional indolent entity in the new World Health Organisation classification of lymphoid neoplasms, 2016). The l...

Abstract ObjectivesAccording to clinical and comissioning guidelines for chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), patients being referred to secondary care should have failed primary medical treatment with nasal douching (ND) and intranasal corticosteroids (INCS). The study objectives were to identify the rate of specific medical therapy in CRS patients and establish any differences in medication use, for both CRS and associated medical conditions, between CRS phenotypes. Design and settingCase‐control study in a secondary care setting. MethodsParticipant‐reported study‐specific questionnaire capturing free text data on current...

Corticosteroids possess cardioprotection in experimental cardiac ischemia/reperfusion. The authors hypothesized that if cardioprotection of corticosteroids occured during pediatric cardiac surgery, then methylprednisolone used in cardiopulmonary bypass prime would reduce postoperative concentrations of heart-type fatty-acid-binding protein, a cardiac biomarker.
