Risk of Head and Neck Cancer in Patients with Psoriasis: A Nationwide Population-based Study
Acta Derm Venereol. 2024 May 17;104:adv18487. doi: 10.2340/actadv.v104.18487.ABSTRACTAn association between psoriasis and cancer risk has been suggested in prior studies, but few have focused on head and neck cancers. Using the Korean National Health Insurance Service database, the relevance between psoriasis and head and neck cancer risks was investigated in a cross-sectional study of 3,869,264 individuals over 20 years of age, who received general health examination in 2009 and were followed until 2020. Head and neck cancer incidence rates were compared between individuals with and without psoriasis, and contributing fac...

Clinical versus Histological Assessment of Basal Cell Carcinoma Subtype and Thickness of Tumours Selected for Photodynamic Therapy
Acta Derm Venereol. 2024 May 15;104:adv18308. doi: 10.2340/actadv.v104.18308.ABSTRACTPhotodynamic therapy is an approved treatment for primary, superficial, and small nodular basal cell carcinomas with a thickness of < 2 mm located on low-risk sites. Histologically verified basal cell carcinomas clinically assessed as suited for photodynamic therapy were included. The study aimed to investigate the agreement between clinical and histological assessments of basal cell carcinoma subtypes and thickness of tumours selected for photodynamic therapy with histopathological evaluation as a reference. A total of 343 tumours were...

Is Telemedicine Suitable for Patients with Chronic Inflammatory Skin Conditions? A Systematic Review
Acta Derm Venereol. 2024 May 15;104:adv23901. doi: 10.2340/actadv.v104.23901.ABSTRACTTelemedicine, the provision of remote healthcare, has gained prominence, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has the potential to replace routine in-person follow-up visits for patients with chronic inflammatory skin conditions. However, it remains unclear whether telemedicine can effectively substitute in-person consultations for this patient group. This systematic review assessed the effectiveness and safety of telemedicine compared with traditional in-person care for chronic inflammatory skin diseases. A comprehensive search in var...

A Randomized Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy of an Oral Probiotic in Acne Vulgaris
Acta Derm Venereol. 2024 May 15;104:adv33206. doi: 10.2340/actadv.v104.33206.ABSTRACTThe relevance of the gut microbiota in some skin inflammatory diseases, including acne vulgaris, has been emphasized. Probiotics could play a role in the modulation of the microbiota, improving the clinical course of this disease. A 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial with patients aged 12 to 30 years with acne vulgaris was conducted. The study product was a capsule composed of the probiotic Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus (CECT 30031) and the cyanobacterium Arthrospira platensis (BEA_IDA_0074B). Patients with...

Model of Chronic Itch in Aged Mice: Beneficial Effects of Drugs Affecting Descending Modulatory Systems
This study proposes an age-related alloknesis mouse model for an evaluation system for such cases, and aimed to investigate the effectiveness and mechanisms of action of several drugs commonly used as antipruritics in Japan, utilizing this model. Mice 69-80 weeks old were used as aged mice, and the level of mechanical alloknesis was counted as the number of scratching behaviours in response to innocuous stimuli. Bepotastine, neurotropin, pregabalin, baricitinib, and abrocitinib were used as antipruritics, and yohimbine and methysergide as inhibitors of the descending inhibitory pathway. The findings suggest that mechanical...

Impact of Atopic Dermatitis on Adult Women's Lives: A Survey of 1,009 French Women
Acta Derm Venereol. 2024 May 13;104:adv10321. doi: 10.2340/actadv.v104.10321.ABSTRACTAtopic dermatitis (AD) is one of the most common inflammatory diseases, and has a higher prevalence among females in adulthood. The aim of this observational, cross-sectional, survey-based study was to evaluate the impact of AD on the daily lives of adult women patients. A scientific committee composed exclusively of women constructed a specific questionnaire in partnership with the French Eczema Association. Severity of AD was evaluated with the Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM). A sample of 1,009 adult women (mean age ± standard de...
