In this study, we investigated the expression of EDA2R in balding HFs and matched with non-balding HFs. The EDA2R level was upregulated in the balding dermal papilla (DP) cells compared with non-balding DP cells derived from patients with AGA. However, EDA2R was strongly expressed in both balding and non-balding outer root sheath (ORS) cells. We screened EDA-A2-regulated genes in balding DP cells and identified dickkopf 1 (DKK-1) as catagen inducer during the hair cycle. The mRNA and protein expression levels of DKK-1 were both upregulated by EDA-A2. In addition, DKK-1 expression was induced by EDA-A2 both in cultured huma...

In this study, we examined the effects of oxytocin on the Aβ-induced impairment of synaptic plasticity in mice. To investigate the effect of oxytocin on synaptic plasticity, we prepared acute hippocampal slices for extracellular recording and assessed long-term potentiation (LTP) with perfusion of the Aβ active fragment (Aβ25-35) in the absence and presence of oxytocin. We found that oxytocin reversed the impairment of LTP induced by Aβ25-35 perfusion in the mouse hippocampus. These effects were blocked by pretreatment with the selective oxytocin receptor antagonist L-368,899. Furthermore, the tr...

Authors: Searle T, Ali FR, Al-Niaimi F Abstract Azelaic acid has numerous pharmacological uses in dermatology. Its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties are thought to correlate with its efficacy in papulopustular rosacea and acne vulgaris, amongst other cutaneous conditions. We conducted a review of the literature on the use of azelaic acid in dermatology using key terms "acne," "azelaic acid," "dermatology," "melasma," "rosacea," searching databases such as MEDLINE, EMBASE and PubMed. Only articles in English were chosen. The level of evidence was evaluate...
