Effects of zinc dosage and particle size on gut morphology, tight junctions and TNF ‐α expression in broiler breeder hens

This study was performed to evaluate the effects of different amounts and particle size of zinc oxide (ZnO) on villus height (VH), villus width (VW), crypt depth (CD) and VH to CD ratio (VH: CD), and expression of zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1), occludin (OC) and tumour necrosis factor- α (TNF-α) in broiler breeders. A total of 350 (Ross 308) broiler breeder hens of 54 weeks randomly assigned to seven treatments, included control basal diet (C) without added Zn, C+ 100, and 130 mg Zn per kg of diet from Large (L) (100–1000 nm) and Small (S) (

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Xerosis cutis is recognized as a burdensome and stressful condition of the skin, resulting in impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Therefore, it should be treated as a relevant skin disease with detailed care and treatment recommendations.METHODS: This cross-sectional, exploratory study aimed to examine xerosis cutis-related burden from patient's perspective and compare it with individuals without xerosis cutis. Within-group comparisons were also performed among patients with xerosis cutis associat...

ConclusionsWith this study, we showed that DosiKit provides a useful way for mapping the actually absorbed doses, allowing to identify patients overexposed in interventional radiology procedures, and thus for anticipating risk of developing dermatitis.Key Points• DosiKit is a new external irradiation biodosimetry device, based on the dose-dependent relationship between irradiation dose and radiation-induced H2AX protein phosphorylation in hair follicles.• DosiKit was tested over 95 patients treated with neuroradiological interventions.• The threshold sensitivity of the DosiKit immunoassay was estimated aroun...

Aberrant epidermal differentiation is a hallmark of inflammatory skin diseases, including psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. If and how differentiated epidermal cells contribute to inflammatory pathology is unclear. In their new article in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, Shao et  al. (2021) report that IRAK2 signaling downstream of IL-1 and IL-36 links epidermal differentiation and skin inflammation.

Surfactant-induced cumulative irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) is a common and clinically important skin disorder. CCL2 is known to mediate inflammation following tissue damage in various organs. Thus, we investigated whether and how CCL2 contributes to the development of murine cumulative ICD induced by a common surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). Wild-type mice treated topically with SDS for 6 consecutive days developed skin inflammation that recapitulated the features of human cumulative ICD, including barrier disruption, epidermal thickening, and neutrophil accumulation.

This study aims to evaluate whether topical use of Jaungo (Shiunko), a traditional herbal ointment mainly composed of Lithospermi radix and Angelica sinensis, could reduce RID compared to the water-in-oil type non-steroidal moisturizer in patients with breast cancer.Methods: This is a prospective, single-blinded, randomized controlled pilot trial that investigates the effect of topical application of Jaungo for the prevention of RID in postoperative breast cancer patients scheduled for RT, in comparison with the non-steroidal moisturizer, with a random distribution of 50 patients across the two groups. RT will be administe...

Hautarzt. 2021 Sep 20. doi: 10.1007/s00105-021-04885-3. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: With AtopicHealth1, the first national care study on atopic dermatitis (AD) was conducted in 2010. At that time, about one third of the patients undergoing treatment by dermatologists showed severe limitations in quality of life, which indicated an insufficient quality of care. The aim of the present study was to characterise the current care of patients with AD undergoing dermatological treatment in comparison between different severity grades, as well as in comparison to 2010 and to psoriasis.METHODS: The Germany-wide multic...
