Natural relief from psoriasis, thanks to TCM

(Natural News) Psoriasis is a common skin disease that affects more than 200 million people worldwide. Although it is non-contagious and has a tendency to come and go, psoriasis is chronic, painful, and most of all, disfiguring. Hence, the search for a definitive cure for this disease, as well as ways of improving the quality of life of psoriasis patients, is...

This study aimed to investigate the potential regulatory effect of tacrolimus on TNF- α/ IL-17A-costimulated human keratinocytes in the mimic psoriatic microenvironment. The cultured normal human keratinocytes (NHKs) were divided into the following groups: control, TNF-α/IL-17A, tacrolimus, and TNF-α/IL-17A + tacrolimus. Cultured cells and supernatant were collected after 24  h, and then real-time quantitative PCR, western blot, and ELISA analysis were performed. Foreskin tissues were treated by using TNF-α, IL-17A, and tacrolimus 0.03% ointment and then cultured for 24 h, an...

Authors: Dalmády S, Kemény L, Antal M, Gyulai R Abstract Introduction: Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin disease with strong genetic background and environmental triggers. Patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are at greater risk of developing other chronic and potentially severe comorbidities, such as psoriatic arthritis, hyperlipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases or depression. Recently, accumulating epidemiologic, genetic and pathogenetic evidence indicates that psoriasis is also associated with periodontitis, a chronic progressive ...

Publication date: Available online 10 December 2019Source: Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Lingling Zhang, Wei WeiAbstractAs a Traditional Chinese Medicine, Paeonia lactiflora Pallas has been used to treat pain, inflammation and immune disorders for more than 1000 years in China. Total glycoside of paeony (TGP) is extracted from the dried root of Paeonia lactiflora Pallas. Paeoniflorin (Pae) is the major active component of TGP. Our research group has done a lot of work in the pharmacological mechanisms of Pae and found that Pae possessed extensive anti-inflammatory and immune regulatory effects. Pae could inhib...

In the 1990s patients with psoriasis were suffering with few options. To complement their treatment, we started a psoriasis support group, engaging a psychologist, Dr Stephen Rapp, to support our efforts. Dr Rapp was intrigued by the enormous impact that he saw psoriasis having on our patients. Together, we embarked on a quantitative study of that impact. Dr Rapp brought to this project his expertise in formal quality of life assessment; at the time, such patient-reported outcomes were just beginning to be used in dermatology.

This study aimed at characterizing epidermal alterations in psoriasis at the level of keratinocyte populations. Epidermal cell populations were purified from skin biopsies of psoriasis patients and healthy donors using a novel cell type-specific approach. Molecular characterization of the transit-amplifying cells (TAC), the key players of epidermal renewal, was performed using immunocytofluorescence-technique and integrated multiscale-omics analyses. Already TAC from non-lesional psoriatic skin showed altered methylation and differential expression in 1.7% and 1.0% of all protein-coding genes, respectively. In psoriatic le...

Conclusion: Increased IFN-κ in psoriasis may be caused by injured cells-released nucleic acids, increased IFN-γ and self-activation. Its enhancement may contribute to the etiology of the disease by enhancing TNFA and IL17A gene expression. PMID: 31819584 [PubMed]

Authors: Grajdeanu IA, Statescu L, Vata D, Popescu IA, Porumb-Andrese E, Patrascu AI, Taranu T, Crisan M, Solovastru LG Abstract Plaque psoriasis is a chronic, immune-mediated disease, which has a multifactorial etiopathogenesis. Practical non-invasive techniques to monitor plaque psoriasis progression and treatment are necessary. Imaging techniques available for psoriasis assessment may vary in terms of resolution, depth of penetration and visual representation. This review summarizes the current developments in the field of psoriasis non-invasive imaging techniques, such as dermoscopy, conventional ultrasound and...
