Medical News Today: What is the difference between nummular eczema and ringworm?

Nummular eczema and ringworm can both cause red, itchy patches on the skin. However, nummular eczema typically causes coin-shaped patches, while ringworm tends to result in ring-shaped areas. These two conditions have different causes and treatments, so it is important to be able to tell them apart. Learn more here.

We report on the discovery of the new clinical candidate BAY 1003803 as glucocorticoid receptor agonist for the topical treatment of psoriasis or severe atopic dermatitis. In the course of optimizing the amino alcohol series as a highly potent new non-steroidal lead structure, considerations were made as to how physicochemical properties and safety concerns relate to structural motifs. BAY 1003803 demonstrates strong anti-inflammatory activity in vitro paired with a pharmacokinetic profile suitable for topical application. PMID: 32631518 [PubMed - in process]

Nicola Mucci Allergic disorders in the agriculture sector are very common among farm workers, causing many injuries and occupational diseases every year. Agricultural employees are exposed to multiple conditions and various allergenic substances, which could be related to onset of anaphylactic reactions. This systematic review highlights the main clinical manifestation, the allergens that are mostly involved and the main activities that are usually involved. This research includes articles published on the major databases (PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus), using a combination of keywords. The online search yielded 48...

Eosinophils are major effector cells against parasites, fungi, bacteria, and viruses. However, these cells also take part in local and systemic inflammation, which are central to eczema, atopy, rhinitis, asthma, and autoimmune diseases. A role for eosinophils has been also shown in vascular thrombotic disorders and in cancer. Many, if not all, above-mentioned conditions involve the release of intracellular nucleotides (ATP, ADP, UTP, etc.) and nucleosides (adenosine) in the extracellular environment. Simultaneously, eosinophils further release ATP, which in autocrine and paracrine manners, stimulates P2 receptors. Purinerg...

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is commonly associated with colonization by Staphylococcus aureus in the affected skin. To understand the role of S. aureus in the development of AD, we performed whole-genome sequencing of S. aureus strains isolated from the cheek skin of 268 Japanese infants 1 and 6 months after birth. About 45% of infants were colonized with S. aureus at 1 month regardless of AD outcome. In contrast, skin colonization by S. aureus at 6 months of age increased the risk of developing AD. Acquisition of dysfunctional mutations in the S. aureus Agr quorum-sensing (QS) system was primarily observed in strains from 6-mo...

In this study, we investigated the anti-inflammatory effect and mechanism of CBT in the HaCaT human keratinocyte cell line and investigated the anti-atopic effect in mice models of atopic dermatitis-like skin lesions. In the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF)-α/interferon (IFN)-γ-stimulated HaCaT cells, CBT inhibited the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines and elevated the nuclear translocation of NF-E2 p45 related factors 2 (Nrf2) and subsequent production of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1). CBT improved the symptoms of atopic dermatitis-like lesions in 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB)-treated mice b...
