A potential association between psoriasin to rs4819554 of IL-17RA gene polymorphism in psoriasis Egyptian patients

AbstractInterleukin 17 (IL-17) is one of the pro-inflammatory cytokine. Psoriasin is a noticeably over-expressed protein found in the skin lesions of psoriatic patients. Our current study was planned to examine the association of ( − 947 A/G) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in IL-17RA promoter region (rs4819554) with psoriasis susceptibility in Egyptian psoriatic patients. Our study included 100 patients and 100, age as well as sex matched, control groups. IL-17RA SNP association was studied using allelic discrimination . RT-qPCR and ELISA were done to assess IL-17 expression. ELISA was performed to assess psoriasin expression. Our study showed a significant association between IL-17 rs4819554 SNP and psoriasis risk, evidenced by higher G allele and AG genotype frequencies in psoriatic patients when compared to con trols (allelic: OR 2.283, 95% CI 1.321–3.946,p = 0.003, and genotype: OR 3.026, 95% CI 1.356–6.752,p = 0.007). Additionally, serum psoriasin level was significantly increased when comparing psoriatic patients to controls (p = 0.0003). Moreover, significant increase in IL 17 gene and protein level in AA, AG psoriatic genotypes compared to the corresponding genotypes in normal control (p = 0.0004). IL-17 rs4819554 is significantly associated with psoriasis, and with psoriasin level, in the Egyptian population.

Biomed Res Int. 2019;2019:1030256 Authors: Coto-Segura P, Coto E, González-Lara L, Alonso B, Gómez J, Cuesta-Llavona E, Queiro R Abstract Background and Aims: The NF-κB pathway has been implicated in the genetic aetiology of psoriatic disease. However, since most patients with arthritis have psoriasis, discerning the genetic contributions to both aspects of psoriatic disease is not easy. Our aim was to study the association of common pol...

Authors: Sun L, Liu W, Zhang LJ Abstract As the key defense molecules originally identified in Drosophila, Toll-like receptor (TLR) superfamily members play a fundamental role in detecting invading pathogens or damage and initiating the innate immune system of mammalian cells. The skin, the largest organ of the human body, protects the human body by providing a critical physical and immunological active multilayered barrier against invading pathogens and environmental factors. At the first line of defense, the skin is constantly exposed to pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and damage-associated molecul...

AbstractThe aim of this study was to explore habitudes about the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in patients with psoriasis. We conducted a face-to-face interview with 374 psoriasis patients to collect information about CAM use. All treatments for psoriasis used in the last 12  months, demographic data of patients, Dermatology Quality of Life Index (DLQI), and Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) were recorded. Topical and systemic CAM, dietary supplements, and diet were investigated. Tendency to use CAM in patients using biological agents was statistically significant l ower than other groups. Pat...

Conclusion: Patients with overlapping AD and psoriasis have a high prevalence of hand involvement, poor response to topical therapy, and may require multiple systemic agents to treat. In a patient with known history of psoriasis with recalcitrant hand disease involvement, atopic dermatitis should be considered. PMID: 31801394 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Exp Ther Med. 2019 Dec;18(6):4987-4992 Authors: Mocanu M, Toader MP, Rezus E, Taranu T Abstract Non-adherence to psoriasis treatment has an important impact in controlling chronic disease evolution and the occurrence of systemic comorbidities. Biologic therapy represents a revolutionary treatment, many of the undesirable psychological and socio-economical consequences of conventional topical or systemic therapies being avoided. Nevertheless, the discontinuation of biological therapy may occur ...

Authors: Șomlea MC, Boca AN, Pop AD, Ilieș RF, Vesa SC, Buzoianu AD, Tătaru A Abstract Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory disorder which accelerates the life process of skin cells, based on a genetically induced deviant immune response. High-frequency ultrasonography (HF-USG) is a painless, non-invasive imaging technique that can be performed and repeated whenever the need arises. We evaluated lesional and non-lesional skin of psoriatic patients with the use of HF-USG, focusing on the immune-induced inflammation and skin thickness. Previous studies suggested that HF-USG, being a non-invasive techniqu...
