Kempe, Dr. Christine Lary, Ms. Julia H. Ginder, Dr. Neal JainAbstractBackgroundStudies evaluating bathing frequency in pediatric atopic dermatitis (AD) are limited. Parents of children with AD often receive conflicting information, leading to frustration and confusion.ObjectiveTo evaluate efficacy of twice-daily, soaking baths, followed by immediate application of an occlusive moisturizer (i.e. soak-and-seal [SS]), versus twice-weekly SS baths, in the acute manage...

AbstractDupilumab, a monoclonal antibody that inhibits both interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13 signaling, is an effective treatment option in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD). Patients with AD are already at increased risk of developing conjunctivitis, and clinical trials and case reports have shown a greater incidence of conjunctivitis in individuals with AD treated with dupilumab. As this is one of the more commonly reported side effects of this biologic agent, it is important that clinicians are aware of this association and advise patients receiving dupilumab to report signs of conjunctivitis. This review summarizes...

We present the case of a 77-year-old woman with a history of a Whipple procedure for pancreatic adenocarcinoma who presented to the emergency department after the start of gemcitabine therapy with increased erythema, swelling, and tenderness in her lower legs. Relevant past medical history included peripheral vascular disease, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. A diagnosis of gemcitabine-induced pseudocellulitis aggravated by venous stasis was confirmed after an extensive workup. This case report and the literature review describe this rare reaction, highlighting the need for increased recognition to avoid unnecessary therape...

Contributors : Madison R Mack ; Brian S KimSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensPurpose: To determine the transcriptional differences between lesional skin and nonlesional skin from patients with atopic dermatitisMethods: Skin biopsies of lesional and non-lesional sites on atopic dermatitis patients were obtained and stored in RNA Later. Ribosomal RNA was removed and cDNA was generated with the SMARTer kit (CloneTech) with 10 ng of total RNA per sample.Samples were sequenced to an average depth of 34 million 1x50 reads on a HiSeq3000 (Illumina). Reads were aligned to Ensemb...

AbstractCurcumin, extracted from the roots ofCurcuma longa, has been used as an anti-inflammatory agent since the time of Ayurveda. The present work was designed to evaluate the potential of curcumin in amelioration of ovalbumin (OVA) induced AD in mice. Female BALB/c mice were subjected to skin OVA-patch application for a period of 1 week followed by resting period of 2 weeks, and the same protocol was repeated thrice. Curcumin was administered daily at dose of 20 mg/kg (i.p.) for 7 consecutive days during last sensitization phase. The phytochemical ameliorated the OVA-induced skin pathology as evident by normalization of...

Abstract Probiotic supplementation may decrease the risk of allergic disease; however, there are differences between studies, such as the type of probiotic, the route or the duration of supplementation. Therefore, determining the most effective probiotic strain/s, route of administration and duration for clinical recommendation has been difficult. An electronic systematic literature search was undertaken between using Ovid MEDLINE, Embase, PubMed and Cochrane. Risk ratio (RR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) are presented for the studies. PEDro scale and Newcastle-Ottawa Scale were used to assess the quality of th...
