From the moment I met Naji Gehchan, I loved his positive energy. Later when I learned of his path that developed that energy, I appreciated it even more. Naji has never shared this story, until now. Read how a childhood avoiding bombs, the Red Cross and a chance internship created the man he is today. He is living a mission to improve as many lives as possible – both inside and outside his organization.   A few years ago, Naji was sitting in a workshop at Disney University in Orlando. As an icebreaker, the facilitator asked each participant for their first childhood memories. One after another, people talk...

Conclusions The clinical trials discussed here, which include several trials investigating novel therapeutic targets, demonstrate that translational research in pemphigus and pemphigoid is a fast-growing field. We thus expect that several novel treatments will be shortly available for the treatment of pemphigus and pemphigoid patients. Given the high, and thus far unmet, medical need in this field (110), this is highly encouraging and will hopefully improve the quality of life of the affected patients. In addition to the compounds and targets described here, several new targets have been recently identified in preclinical...

This study aims to investigate the influence of BAHS and associated skin reactions around the implant. A total of 45 patients were prospectively followed from implantation up to at least 1 year. Swabs were obtained at baseline, 12 weeks follow-up and during cases of inflammation (Holgers score ≥2). The microbiota was assessed using IS-proTM, a bacterial profiling method based on the interspace region between the 16S–23S rRNA genes. Detection of operational taxonomic units, the Shannon Diversity Index, sample similarity analyses and Partial Least Squares Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA) were employed. Staphylococcus ...

Discussion Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 is an essential molecule for maintaining immune homeostasis and subverting inflammation. Disorders arising from excess inflammation or SOCS1 deficiency can be potentially treated with SOCS1 mimetics (Ahmed et al., 2015). While SOCS1 has promising potential in many disorders, it should be noted that new targets and actions of SOCS1 are still being discovered and not all the effects of this protein are beneficial in autoimmune diseases and cancer. For instance, SOCS1 degrades IRS1 and IRS2, required for insulin signaling, via the SOCS Box domain, thus, limiting its potential in ...

Discussion Hypopigmentation can be worrisome for many families because of cosmesis and the worry that “something is wrong.” The normal natural changes in skin-tone over the year due to different light exposure and wide variations within individuals is not something that many people are aware of. Post-inflammatory hypopigmentation is a common cause of hypopigmentation. Vitiligo is the most common cause of depigmentation. Vitiligo is an acquired, depigmenting disorder with typical lesions appearing as milky white macules with distinct margins that are not scaly. Hair (including eyebrows and eyelashes) can be dep...

A 30-year-old woman, presented with erythematous scaling plaques on her trunk with severe pruritus and a burning sensation that began 3 months prior to her visit. She had a history of a thermal burn in that area, three years prior. Topical corticosteroid application for 3 months had no positive effects. Skin biopsy was done and scabies mites were found.

Phototherapy has been used for decades in the treatment of many common dermatologic conditions, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, vitiligo, and scleroderma, among others. Before the commencement of phototherapy, many factors must be considered. For dermatologists, the most important factors include the determination of a patient ’s skin phototype, concurrent use of photosensitizing agents, and calculation of minimal erythema dose (MED). Though infrequent, the side-effects to phototherapy commonly discussed with patients include burns, ocular toxicity, polymorphous light eruption, potent...
