Report from the first European Dermato-Epidemiology Network forum.
in LM Abstract The first European Dermato-Epidemiology Network (EDEN) forum was held on 30-31 March 2017 in Madrid, Spain. Dermatoepidemiology describes the study of causes, prevention, health services research and evaluation of interventions of skin diseases. EDEN aims to promote high-quality research, share expertise and facilitate collaboration. These aims were achieved during the EDEN forum by including a preconference course on skin cancer epidemiology; having excellent world-leading guest speakers on causality, quality of care, pharmacoepidemiology and missing data analysis; and including delegates who prese...

Efficacy and safety of autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in systemic sclerosis: A systematic review of literature.
Abstract We aimed at assessing the efficacy of autologous haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for skin sclerosis and lung function in systemic sclerosis (SSc). We performed a systematic literature review in the Pubmed and Scopus databases from the earliest records to March 2016. We assessed quality using the Cochrane tool for randomized studies, Newcastle-Ottawa scale for controlled-cohort studies and an 18-item quality appraisal checklist for case series. The primary outcome was the improvement of skin thickening using the modified Rodnan Skin Score (mRSS). The secondary outcome was efficacy on lung f...

A comprehensive approach to evaluating and classifying sun-protective clothing.
Abstract BACKGROUND: National standards for clothing designed to protect the wearer from the harmful effects of solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) have been implemented in Australia/New Zealand, Europe, and the USA. Industry standards reflect the need to protect the skin by covering a considerable proportion of the potentially exposed body surface area (BSA) and by reducing UVR-transmission through fabric (the Ultraviolet Protection Factor; UPF). OBJECTIVES: This research aimed to develop a new index for rating sun-protective clothing that incorporates the BSA coverage of the garment in addition to the UPF of ...

Treatment of superficial basal cell carcinoma by topical photodynamic therapy with fractionated 5-aminolevulinic acid 20% versus two stage topical methylaminolevulinic acid: results of a randomized controlled trial.
CONCLUSIONS: The 2-fold ALA-PDT scheme resulted in fewer recurrences, although the difference between both treatment groups was not statistically significant. On the contrary, it resulted in higher pain scores and more post-treatment side-effects compared to MAL-PDT. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Severe disruption and disorganization of dermal collagen fibrils in early striae gravidarum.
CONCLUSIONS: Early SG display marked separation of collagen bundles and emergence of disorganized collagen fibrils that fail to form bundles. These alterations may reflect ineffective repair of collagen bundles disrupted by intense skin stretching.
