AbstractPurpose of ReviewMale pattern hair loss, mediated by dihydrotestosterone, is a common hair loss disorder, affecting over 50% of men over the age of 50. The 5- α reductase inhibitors, finasteride and dutasteride, are Food and Drug Administration-approved drugs for the treatment of this disorder. Several recent studies have reported adverse sexual and spermatogenic events among young men using 5-α reductase inhibitors, such as erectile dysfunction, decrea sed ejaculate volume, decreased libido, and infertility. In this review, we summarize and analyze the literature regarding the efficacy and safety of th...

Assessment of the effects of prostaglandins on myometrial and leiomyoma cells in vitro through microRNA profiling. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Jun 14;: Authors: Kim HG, Jung GY, Park SB, Cho YJ, Han M Abstract It is well known that prostaglandin (PG) E2 and PGF2α are secreted in copious amounts from the menstruating uterus. The aim of the present study was to determine whether PGs affect the growth of uterine leiomyomas (ULs) to the same extent as estrogen or progesterone (P4). The present study evaluated the expression of eight microRNAs (miRNAs) by reverse transcription‑quantitative poly...

To the Editor: Strazzulla et  al1,2 have written instructive reviews on the clinical presentation, pathogenesis, and current treatment options for alopecia areata. In these articles, they describe and show photographs of the more common patchy subtype of the scalp and beard, as well as the less common ophiasis, androgenic-lik e, and diffuse subtypes. They also explain how trichoscopy and scalp biopsy are important tools in diagnosing alopecia areata. The authors mention that nail changes may be present in 10% to 20% of patients with alopecia areata and that severity of nail changes may correlate with more extensi...

Authors: Yamamoto A, Usami T, Kondo E, Kato K, Umayahara K Abstract Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare condition that affects other organs out of the uterus. Recently, a few case reports in which 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) has been used to distinguish the malignancy have been published. Here, the authors present a case of BML with metabolic activity on PET, in which needle biopsy of the uterus was efficient to make diagnosis. PMID: 29894087 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractThe skin is the largest organ of the body, at the boundary with the outside environment. Primarily, it provides a physical and chemical barrier against external insults, but it can act also as immune organ because it contains a whole host of immune-competent cells of both the innate and the adaptive immune systems, which cooperate in eliminating invading pathogens following tissue injury. On the other hand, improper skin immune responses lead to autoimmune skin diseases (AISD), such as pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, vitiligo, and alopecia. Although the interplay among genetic, epigenetic, and environmental factors ...
