Acta Derm Venereol 2019 02 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Royal Randwick Medical Centre, 70/73-115 Belmore Road, Randwick NSW 203, Australia.

Concerns about topical steroid withdrawal are causing some patients to cease long-term topical corticosteroid therapy, however, little is known about the ensuing clinical outcomes. This qualitative case series studied 10 children whose parents stopped their chronic topical corticosteroid use and subsequently developed features typically reported in adults experiencing topical steroid withdrawal. Patients were seen in an Australian general practice between April 2014 and October 2018, with follow-up periods ranging from 18 months to 4 years. Read More

Neuromedin B Induces Acute Itch in Mice via the Activation of Peripheral Sensory Neurons.

Acta Derm Venereol 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University, 27606 Raleigh, USA.

Neuromedin B is expressed in nociceptive and itch-sensitive dorsal root ganglia neurons, but its peripheral pruritogenic potential is not well described. The potential of neuromedin B as a pruritogen and pro-inflammatory peptide in the skin was tested in vivo in an acute model in mice and monkeys as well as an allergic dermatitis model in mice. To identify the underlying mechanisms in vitro real time PCR analysis for neuromedin B and its receptor expression in murine mast cells and dorsal root ganglia as well as functional calcium imaging in the ganglia was applied.

Mortality of Haemodialysis Patients With and Without Chronic Itch: A Follow-up Study of the German Epidemiological Hemodialysis Itch Study (GEHIS).

Acta Derm Venereol 2019 01 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Clinical Social Medicine, Occupational and Environmental Dermatology, University Hospital Heidelberg, DE-69115 Heidelberg, Germany.

The GEHIS (German Epidemiological Hemodialysis Itch Study) is a representative cohort study started in 2013 with 860 haemodialysis (HD) patients in 25 German dialysis units. Chronic itch (CI) has been reported to be a poor prognostic marker for patients on HD; however, this has not been investigated in a representative patient cohort. In 2017, all HD patients were contacted again to investigate mortality in those with and without CI and to identify its determinants. Read More

Study Center of the Italian Group for Epidemiologic Research in Dermatology (GISED), Via Clara Maffei 4, IT-24121 Bergamo, Italy.

Data on the psoriasis incidence and prevalence in the Italian population are limited, and a timely and accurate understanding of the disease epidemiology is needed. This ad hoc study investigated psoriasis incidence and lifetime prevalence in a representative sample (n = 14,705) of the Italian population. Information on lifetime history of skin disorders with details about their onset, duration, and treatment was collected. Read More

Department of Internal medicine, division of general internal medicaine and nephrology, Robert-Bosch-Hosptial, DR-70376 Stuttgart, Germany.

Pruritus, impaired mental health and inflammation contribute to morbidity in end-stage renal disease. There are no studies on all three conditions. We therefore obtained inflammatory parameter data (C-reactive protein and interleukin-6), pruritus data and psychological test data (36-Item Short-Form Health Survey, "Allgemeine Depressionsskala" and Toronto Alexithymia Scale-20) for 19 dialysis patients with pruritus, 20 dialysis patients without pruritus and 15 healthy controls.

Out-of-pocket Costs for Individuals with Atopic Eczema: A Cross-sectional Study in Nine European Countries.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 12 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Technical University Munich, Biedersteinerstrasse 29, DE-80802 Munich, Germany.

Atopic eczema (AE) is one of the most common non-communicable inflammatory skin diseases, and has a huge socioeconomic impact. Studies on the everyday economic impact of AE on patients, however, are limited. To estimate the annual extra out-of-pocket spending due to AE among patients in Europe, a cross-sectional study using computer-assisted phone interviewing of patients with AE was performed in 9 European countries.
