Aged human skin accumulates mast cells with altered functionality which localise to macrophage and VIP+ nerve fibres.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Skin health declines with age and this is partially attributed to immunosenescence. Mast cells (MCs) are innate immune cells which coordinate tissue immune responses integral to skin homeostasis and disease. OBJECTIVES: To understand how MCs contribute to human skin ageing, we investigated how intrinsic ageing impacts MC phenotype and MC relationships with other immune cells and skin structures. METHODS: In photoprotected skin biopsies from young (≤30yrs) and aged (≥75yrs) individuals immunostaining and spatial morphometry were performed to identify changes in MC phenotype, num...

Effects of psychosocial interventions on patient-reported outcomes in patients with psoriasis: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
CONCLUSION: Psychosocial interventions offer an effective mean to improve quality of life and anxiety in patients with psoriasis. Although the importance of such psychosocial aspects for psoriasis is unquestioned, there is a lack of high-quality evaluation studies. Non-transparent reporting of risks of bias, low power and a lack of replication studies make it difficult to reach confident conclusions from the evidence. This article is protected by copyright.

Fatigue in systemic lupus erythematosus and other autoimmune skin diseases.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Fatigue is a well-established symptom in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), but has not been well-characterized in other skin-limited autoimmune diseases such as cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE), amyopathic dermatomyositis (ADM), or autoimmune blistering diseases (AIBD). OBJECTIVES: In this retrospective study, we compared fatigue in controls (n=84) to patients enrolled in prospective longitudinal databases with SLE (n=165), CLE (n=226), ADM (n=136), and AIBD (n=79). METHODS: We used the Short-Form 36 (SF-36) vitality scale to analyze median scores and percentage of patients with...

METHODS: Self-administered questionnaires and skin-examination were performed in 340 adult...
