Strata Skin Sciences adds license for excimer laser vitiligo treatment  
Strata Skin Sciences (NSDQ:SSKN) said it has reached an agreement with an “internationally acclaimed health institution” giving Strata an exclusive license to treat vitiligo using its Xtrac excimer laser.

A disorder in which melanocytes — the skin cells that make pigment — are destroyed, vitiligo causes white patches to surface on the skin. The cause is unknown. “We are quite pleased to have secured the license and exclusi...

From the ashes of a failed pain drug, a new therapeutic path emerges
(Boston Children's Hospital) A surprising discovery about a failed pain drug -- and specifically, the pathway it targets, BH4 -- could have implications for autoimmunity and cancer. Neuroscientists at Boston Children's Hospital and immunologists from IMBA in Vienna report that BH4 also functions as a kind of immunological thermostat, raising and lowering the activity levels of T cells. Inhibiting BH4 could relieve atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, lupus, polyarthritis and inflammatory bowel disease; boosting it could help the immune system attack cancers. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
