Assessment of Likelihood Ratio for Four Contact Dermatitis Symptoms of Vinca Minor.

CONCLUSION:  There was insufficient evidence to attribute any of the four assessed symptoms clearly to VM. Though non-significant, a high LR was observed for "itching amelioration in open air" (symptom 3). Symptoms in the homeopathic materia medica for VM are perhaps over-represented. More research of this nature is warranted. PMID: 29783275 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractAtopic dermatitis/eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, and emollients are the first-line treatment. Despite their widespread use, there is uncertainty about the frequency and type of adverse events associated with different emollients. We conducted a restricted review of published data on adverse events associated with emollient use in eczema. Medline (Ovid) was searched from inception (1946) to June 2018. All types of studies, with the exception of reviews, were included. Eligibility was assessed using a two-stage screening process against inclusion and exclusion criteria. References of all included pa...

Conclusion: CAM use is frequent in both children and adult AD patients. CAM users are characterized by long disease duration, a significant disease burden and by having a longer education. The high prevalence of CAM may indicate that patients ’ expectations regarding treatment of AD are not redeemed in the conventional health care system.Dermatology

ConclusionsScreening programs need to identify nurses who develop chlorhexidine sensitivity due to occupational exposure. Strategies to mitigate risk should provide alternatives for those with sensitization.

SGMA Abstract BACKGROUND: Alterations of the skin microbiome have been associated with atopic dermatitis (AD) and its severity. The nasal microbiome in relation to AD severity is less well studied. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to characterize the nasal and skin microbiome in children with AD in relation to disease severity. Additionally, we explored differences and correlations between the nasal and skin communities. METHODS: We cross-sectionally characterized the microbial composition of 90 nasal and 108 lesional skin samples from patients with AD, using 16S-rRNA sequencing. Additional quantitative (q)PCR for S...

AbstractThis experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of a benzylideneacetophenone derivative ((2E)-3-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)phenylpro-2-en-l-one (JC3)) on trimellitic anhydride (TMA) –induced atopic dermatitis (AD)–like symptoms in mice. To induce AD, the dorsal skins of mice were treated with 5% TMA on day 0 and both ears were treated with 5% TMA on day 5 and with 2% TMA from day 6 to day 14. JC3 (1, 5, 10 mg/kg, i.p.) was treated once daily from day 9 to day 14 before TMA treatment. Histological analysis was performed and auricular lymph node weights, ear thicknesses, skin water contents,...
