ConclusionsOur study results showed the relationship between the DER and acne vulgaris. The ignorance of this relationship while evaluating patients with acne may result in anxiety and depression symptoms and impairment in the QoL in the future. Hence, psychopathologies should be considered in acne treatment and patients should gain the ability of regulating their emotions through appropriate therapeutic approaches.

AbstractAcne is a chronic skin disease of the pilosebaceous unit resulting fromPropionibacterium acnes(P. acnes), a commensal microorganism. Although numerous therapies are available for acne, there is still a need for the development of effective therapies. Erythroid differentiation regulator 1 (Erdr1) has been suggested to be beneficial during inflammatory skin diseases. In the current study, we first showed that Erdr1 expression level was lower in inflammatory acne skin compared to the normal skin, suggesting that Erdr1 was negatively regulated in acne skin. To evaluate the effect of Erdr1 further, Erdr1 was injected su...

KnudsenAbstractEndoderm gives rise to the gut tube in the early embryo. We differentiated human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) to embryonic endoderm to identify a tipping point at which the developing system did not recover from perturbations caused by exposure to all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA). Differentiating iPSC-derived endoderm exposed to five concentrations of ATRA between 0.001 and 10 µM at 6 h, 96 h, or...
