Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma and Pruritus: the Expression of IL-31 and its Receptors in the Skin.
This study investigated the role of IL-31 and its receptors (IL-31 receptor-alpha [IL-31RA] and OSMRβ) in the skin of CTCL patients with mild versus moderate/severe pruritus. Expression levels of IL-31, IL-31RA, and OSMRβ in the skin were measured using immunohistochemistry and correlated to pruritus severity and disease stage. In CTCL patients with moderate/severe pruritus, IL-31 was significantly elevated in the epidermis and dermal infiltrate, while IL-31RA and OSMRβ were significantly elevated only in the epidermis. Furthermore, epidermal IL-31 levels correlated to itch severity. These results show that ...

Drug Survival and Predictors of Drug Survival for Methotrexate Treatment in a Retrospective Cohort of Adult Patients with Localized Scleroderma.
This study gathered data from a retrospective cohort of adult patients with LoS (n = 107), treated with MTX (1993-2015). MTX drug survival and predictors thereof were analysed. After 1 and 2 years, 26% and 63% of patients stopped MTX due to disease remission, respectively. Patients with younger age at MTX initiation (hazard ratio (HR) 1.159 (95% confidence interval (CI) 1.052-1.277)) and those with no other autoimmune diseases (hazard ratio (HR) 3.268 (1.334-8.009)) more often stopped MTX due to disease remission. In addition, 24% of patients stopped MTX due to treatment failure within 1 year. Patients with c...

Intra-familial Variation in Clinical Phenotype of CARD14-related Psoriasis.
We describe here a family with CARD14-related psoriasis, exhibiting an extreme variability of clinical presentation (from mild plaque-type to generalized pustular psoriasis) and early disease onset. The affected family members harboured the c.349G>A [p.Gly117Ser] mutation in CARD14, which has not previously been linked to pustular psoriatic phenotype. Furthermore, most severely affected individuals carried 3 additional CARD14 coding region polymorphisms (rs2066964, rs34367357 and rs11652075), suggesting their possible effect on disease expression. Early-onset psoriasis co-segregated with the HLA-C*0602, indicating that ...

Clinical and Immunological Study of 332 Japanese Patients Tentatively Diagnosed with Anti-BP180-type Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid: A Novel BP180 C-terminal Domain Enzyme-linked Immunoassay.
Abstract Diagnosis of anti-BP180-type mucous membrane pemphigoid (BP180-MMP) is frustrated by the difficulty of detecting BP180 reactivity. A total of 721 patients with suspected MMP, selected from a cohort of 4698 patients with autoimmune bullous disease (AIBD), were included in this study. Of these, 332 patients were tentatively diagnosed with BP180-MMP if they showed IgG/IgA reactivity with the epidermal side of 1M NaCl-split-skin and/or positive reactivity with BP180 in at least one of our antigen detection methods. Clinically, a predominance of female patients was diagnosed. Oral mucosal and cutaneous lesions...

son B Abstract Streptococcal throat infections are known to trigger or exacerbate psoriasis, and several studies support the benefit of tonsillectomy. To evaluate the potential of tonsillectomy as a treatment, we used a retrospective study-specific questionnaire to assess the proportion of psoriasis patients with sore throat-associated psoriasis exacerbations. Our survey sampled 275 psoriasis patients. Of patients with plaque psoriasis, 42%reported sore throat-associated psoriasis exacerbations, and of patients with confirmed streptococcal infections, 72%reported aggravation. Notably, women and patients with early...

An in Vitro Model for the Human Cutaneous Microbial Ecosystem.
Abstract The diversity and dynamics of the skin microbiome in health and disease have been studied recently, but adequate model systems to study skin microbiotas in vitro are largely lacking. We developed an in vitro system that mimics human stratum corneum, using human callus as substrate and nutrient source for bacterial growth. The growth of several commensal and pathogenic bacterial strains was measured for up to one week by counting colony-forming units or by quantitative PCR with strain-specific primers. Human skin pathogens were found to survive amidst a minimal microbiome consisting of 2 major skin commens...

Definition of Sensitive Skin: an Expert Position Paper from the Special Interest Group on Sensitive Skin of the International Forum for the Study of Itch.
r E Abstract Sensitive skin is a frequent complaint in the general population, patients, and among subjects with itch. The International Forum for the Study of Itch (IFSI) decided to initiate a special interest group (SIG) on sensitive skin. Using the Delphi method, sensitive skin was defined as "A syndrome defined by the occurrence of unpleasant sensations (stinging, burning, pain, pruritus, and tingling sensations) in response to stimuli that normally should not provoke such sensations. These unpleasant sensations cannot be explained by lesions attributable to any skin disease. The skin can appear normal or...

Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis: Flip Sides of the Coin?
Abstract Presence (current or past) of psoriasis of the skin is a major criterion to establish the diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis. However, in individual patients, the course of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis do not seem to correlate. This raises the issue of whether psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are distinct entities, or parts of the spectrum of a "psoriatic disease". Arguments in favour of both concepts, derived from clinical observations, animal experiments, genetic approaches, and therapeutic studies are reviewed, and the implications for scientists and practicing dermatologists highlighted....

Verapamil is Less Effective than Triamcinolone for Prevention of Keloid Scar Recurrence After Excision in a Randomized Controlled Trial.
Abstract A double-blind randomized controlled trial with a paired split-scar design compared verapamil, an L-type Ca2+ channel antagonist, and triamcinolone for prevention of keloid recurrence after excision. Ca2+ channel blocking activity of verapamil in keloid cells was explored. One keloid was excised per subject and each wound half randomized to receive intralesional injections of triamcinolone (10 mg/ml) or verapamil (2.5 mg/ml) at monthly intervals (4 doses). Interim analysis was performed after 14 subjects were recruited. Survival analysis demonstrated significantly higher keloid recurrence with verapamil c...

Various serological tests detected no autoantibodies or autoantigens. Direct immunofluorescence for various complement components revealed deposition only of C3 and C5-C9, indicating that known complement pathways were involved. Studies of in situ hybridization and micro-dissection with quantitative RT-PCR revealed a slight reduction in expression of C3 in patient epidermis. These patients may represent a new disease entity, for which we propose the term "granular...

Barrier Function and Natural Moisturizing Factor Levels After Cumula-tive Exposure to Short-chain Aliphatic Alcohols and Detergents: Results of Occlusion-modified Tandem Repeated Irritation Test.
This study investigated the combined effects of occlusion with water and repeated exposure to n-propanol and/or sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) in an occlusion-modified tandem irritation test. The outcomes included visual scoring, measurement of erythema, transepidermal water loss, capacitance and natural moisturizing factor (NMF) levels. Occlusion abrogated the skin barrier function and significantly enhanced the irritant-induced barrier damaging effects. The NMF levels of all irritant-exposed fields decreased significantly compared with non-exposed fields; occlusion enhanced the decrease in NMF. Although SLS exerted more pr...
