Granuloma Annulare and Morphea: Correlation with Borrelia burgdorferi Infections and Chlamydia-related Bacteria.

In conclusion, tick-mediated infections can trigger GA in some cases, while correlation of either Borrelia or Chlamydiales with morphea is unlikely. PMID: 29110020 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Devigili G, Cazzato D, Lauria G Abstract INTRODUCTION: Small fiber neuropathy (SFN) is a heterogeneous group of disorders affecting thinly myelinated Aδ and unmyelinated C-fibers. Common symptoms include neuropathic pain and autonomic disturbances, and the typical clinical presentation is that of a length-dependent polyneuropathy, although other distributions could be present. AREA COVERED: This review focuses on several aspects of SFN including etiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria and tests, management, and future perspectives. Diagnostic challenges are discussed, encompassing the ro...

Authors: Keurentjes AJ, Jakasa I, John SM, Ulrich C, Bekkenk MW, Rustemeyer T, Kezic S Abstract PURPOSE: Prevalence of skin cancer is rapidly increasing. There is a need for non-invasive biomarkers to assess efficacy of prevention strategies aiming at reduction of exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR). Recently, stratum corneum (SC) biomarkers were applied in various inflammatory skin diseases. Here, we explore their suitability as candidate biomarkers for UVR. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twelve volunteers were exposed to a UVB-dose of 0.72 SED, three times a week, during three weeks. As candidate biomarkers, cis-i...

Authors: Foschi C, Zagarrigo M, Belletti M, Marangoni A, Re MC, Gaspari V Abstract Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are the most common agents of bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) worldwide. Here, we evaluated genital and extra-genital C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae infection prevalence in a cohort of young women attending an STI Outpatients Clinic in Italy. From May 2019 to December 2019, 134 women aged 18-26 years were enrolled. A vaginal, a pharyngeal and a rectal swab for the molecular detection of C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae were collected from each patient. Chlamydia-pos...

Harms and colleagues advised a single dose of doxycycline to prevent Lyme disease from a Ixodes ricinus tick bite.1 Using a modified-intention-to-treat analysis, the authors that reported a single 200 mg dose of doxycycline resulted in a 67% relative risk reduction for the subjects in the treatment arm.

Dynamic interactions that govern the balance between host and pathogen determine the outcome of infection and are shaped by evolutionary pressures. Eukaryotic hosts have evolved elaborate and formidable defense mechanisms that provide the basis for innate and adaptive immunity. Proteins containing a membrane attack complex/Perforin (MACPF) domain represent an important class of immune effectors. These pore-forming proteins induce cell killing by targeting microbial or host membranes. Intracellular bacteria can be shielded from MACPF-mediated killing, and Chlamydia spp. represent a successful paradigm of obligate intracellu...
