Increased tumour cell PD ‐L1 expression, macrophage and dendritic cell infiltration characterise the tumour microenvironment of ulcerated primary melanomas
ConclusionsOur results confirm the adverse clinical outcome associated with primary melanoma ulceration, particularly concerning the risk of recurrence and subsequent development of brain metastases. The observed immunological differences suggest a conceivable role of increased intratumoural macrophage and dendritic cell counts associated with enhanced tumour cell PD ‐L1 expression potentially contributing to the immunosuppressive, growth‐promoting microenvironment of ulcerated primary melanomas.

Calcipotriol plus betamethasone dipropionate aerosol foam versus apremilast, methotrexate, acitretin, or fumaric acid esters for the treatment of plaque psoriasis: A matching ‐adjusted indirect comparison
AbstractBackgroundPlaque psoriasis has significant impact on patients ’ quality of life. Topical therapy is considered the treatment mainstay for mild‐to‐moderate disease according to guidelines. Calcipotriol/betamethasone dipropionate (Cal/BD) [0.005%/0.05%] aerosol foam is indicated for psoriasis vulgaris treatment in adults. Cal/BD foam trials demonstrated im proved efficacy and similar safety in this population. Psoriasis treatment is complicated by the broad range of disease presentation, variability, and therapeutic options; particularly decisions on transition from topical to non‐biologic systemic treatm...

The spectrum of cutaneous adverse events during Encorafenib and Binimetinib treatment in BRAF mutant advanced melanoma
ConclusionCompared to data published for established BRAFi, encorafenib monotherapy showed less hyperproliferative cutaneous adverse events. In contrast, palmoplantar hyperkeratosis and palmoplantar erythrodysesthesia seem to occur more often. The combination encorafenib with binimetinib is well tolerated and induces few cutaneous adverse events.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Rates of Antibiotic Resistance / Sensitivity in Bacterial Cultures of Hidradenitis Suppurativa Patients
ConclusionsBacterial growth in HS patients has shown a high level of resistance to ABs, including rifampicin, clindamycin and tetracyclines, cited as an empiric choice in HS therapeutic guidelines. A targeted and specific AB therapy, driven by microbiological evaluations with prolonged culture periods, seems more appropriate than empiric, generic, non ‐specific, therapeutic approaches.
