Advanced Glycation End Products are Increased in the Skin and Blood of Patients with Severe Psoriasis.
Abstract Psoriasis is frequently associated with metabolic comorbidities. Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are highly oxidant, biologically active compounds that accumulate in tissues in association with hyperglycaemia, hyperlipidaemia and oxidative stress. This is a cross-sectional case-control study involving 80 patients with mild/severe psoriasis and 80 controls matched for age, sex and body mass index (40 with severe eczema, 40 healthy individuals). Patients and healthy individuals with a smoking habit, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, hypercholesterolaemia, hypertension or who were under systemic treatment were...

Contribution of Apoptosis Resistance to Epidermal Thickening in Psoriatic Epidermal Keratinocytes.
k C Abstract Psoriasis is a common autoimmune skin disease. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the apoptotic process is disturbed in psoriatic keratinocytes. In vitro culture of keratinocytes derived from both involved and uninvolved psoriatic skin, revealed higher viability and resistance to apoptosis following exposure to ultraviolet B, compared with cells from healthy controls. The position of apoptotic dysregulation was found to be upstream of cytochrome c release in the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway. Microarray transcriptome analysis revealed that 87 genes were differentially expressed in both...

Debunking the Myth of Wool Allergy: Reviewing the Evidence for Immune and Non-immune Cutaneous Reactions.
Abstract Although wool is commonly believed to cause irritant (non-immune) and hypersensitivity (immune) cutaneous reactions, the evidence basis for this belief and its validity for modern garments have not been critically examined. Publications from the last 100 years, using MEDLINE and Google Scholar, were analysed for evidence that wool causes cutaneous reactions, both immune-mediated (atopic dermatitis exacerbation, contact urticaria, allergic contact dermatitis) and non-immune-mediated (irritant contact dermatitis, itch). Secondary aims of this paper were to examine evidence that lanolin and textile-processin...

Basophil Fc εRI Expression in Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria: A Poten-tial Immunological Predictor of Response to Omalizumab Therapy.
This study investigated the effect of omalizumab on expression of the high-affinity IgE receptor (FcεRI) on blood basophils from patients with active CSU, and its association with the clinical response. Patients exhibiting significant clinical improvement showed a sharp reduction in the levels of basophil FcεRI after 4 weeks, which was maintained throughout the total duration of the treatment. Such evolution was not observed in non-responder patients. Furthermore, non-responders showed significantly lower baseline levels of FcεRI than responders. Baseline basophil FcεRI expression was found ...

Risk of Non-melanoma Skin Cancer in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis Treated with Oral Immunosuppressive Drugs.
Abstract There is uncertainty about the risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) treated with oral immunosuppressive drugs. A total of 557 patients with AD treated with these drugs in the University Medical Center Utrecht and Groningen, the Netherlands, were analysed. NMSC after oral immunosuppressive treatment was reported in 18 patients (3.2%). The standardized incidence ratio for developing SCC was 13.1 (95% confidence interval (95% CI) 6.5-19.7). Patients developing NMSC were older at the start ...

Peripheral NMDA Receptor/NO System Blockage Inhibits Itch Responses Induced by Chloroquine in Mice.
Abstract Intradermal administration of chloroquine (CQ) provokes scratching behavior in mice. Chloroquine-induced itch is histamine-independent and we have reported that the nitric oxide (NO)/cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) pathway is involved in CQ-induced scratching behavior in mice. Previous studies have demonstrated that activation of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) induces NO production. Here we show that NMDAR antagonists significantly decrease CQ-induced scratching in mice while a non-effective dose of an NMDAR agonist potentiates the scratching behavior provoked by sub-effective doses of CQ. ...

Mortality of patients with pemphigus was compared with age- and gender-matched control subjects in the general population. All-cause and cause-specific standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) were estimated. The study cohort included 245 patients newly-diagnosed with pemphigus between January 1990 and June 2016. Overall, 48 deaths were observed during a mean follow-up period of 10.9 ± 8.1 years, which was more than twice the number expected (SMR 2.4; 95% confi...

Diagnostic Value of Linear Fluorescence Along the Basement Membrane of Sweat Gland Ducts in Bullous Pemphigoid.
This study evaluated linear IgG fluorescence of the basement membrane of sweat gland ducts (SGD) and other adnexa in perilesional biopsies from patients with BP (n = 64) and controls (n = 82), using direct immunofluorescence microscopy. Fluorescence intensity was graded semi-quantitatively. Positive SGDs were found in 58 (90.6%) patients with BP and 44 (53.7%) controls, a statistically significant difference (p
