Authors: Tedesco M Abstract Folliculitis decalvans is a rare clinical disorder classified as primary neutrophilic scarring alopecia with a slight preference for the male gender. Here, we report the use of autologous fat transplantation as a source of stem cell therapy for hair re-growth assisted by inflammatory action of the fat itself in a female patient. The patient underwent adipose transplantation in April and September 2017. After treatments, the patient had no new pustules and no longer had pain or burning sensation in the affected area. The hair has re-grown at the periphery area of alopecia appearing strong...

AbstractBackgroundSkin lesions are very common among organ transplant recipients (OTR), particularly infections and tumors, because of the immunosuppressive state these patients are put in.Methods177 OTR were examined. Skin lesions were categorized into neoplastic, infectious, and inflammatory diseases.ResultsThe mean age of OTR was 52  years, the mean age at transplantation was 42.7 years, and kidney was the most common organ transplanted (72%). Skin lesions were found in 147 patients (83%). Cutaneous infections were seen in 106 patients (60%). Warts (30%) had the larger incidence and were associated with azathi...

Conclusions: The CBT therapies Ipi and Nivo, in combination with BV, are overall both well tolerated over time, although BV/Ipi has a higher overall AE burden. Neither regimen has significant cumulative immune toxicity. Results of this analysis should be interpreted in the context of limited number of pts in both cohorts. A larger scale examination of this analysis is planned to incorporate both phase 1 and the ongoing phase 2 components of E4412. Compared with conventional tox analysis, ToxT delineated important additional and clinically relevant depictions of AEs over time and adds a more comprehensive assessment of the ...

Conclusions: Glasdegib 'on target' AEs of muscle spasms, alopecia, and dysgeusia were mainly of mild severity, had infrequent dose modifications or permanent discontinuations, and did not appear to impair tolerability of combination treatment. In comparison, muscle spasms and dysgeusia occurred in ≤5% for the LDAC alone arm, and no alopecia was reported. Although muscle spasms and dysgeusia occurred with similar frequency, dysgeusia occurred earlier, for a shorter duration, and was more persistent at the time of discontinuation compared with muscle spasms. Similar safety profiles were observed when combining glasdegib w...

Conclusion: Steroid-refractory scGVHD is an extremely difficult disease to manage with a high rate of morbidity. Our experience with hedgehog pathway inhibitor, Vismodegib, is very encouraging. Additional study to evaluate the optimal dosing, side effects and its efficacy is under way.DisclosuresNo relevant conflicts of interest to declare.

Authors: Almohanna HM, Perper M, Tosti A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Alopecia is often a cause of great concern to patients for cosmetic and psychologic reasons. The aim of treating non-scarring alopecias is to reduce hair loss and, to some extent, enhance hair regrowth. However, therapies for scarring alopecias are limited and aiming to halt disease progression. Nonetheless, available modalities of treatment come with numerous side effects. Areas covered: Many new treatments for non-scarring alopecias have been introduced in recent years. This review summarizes the safety concerns when using novel therapeutic modalitie...
