Alopecia Areata is Associated with Increased Expression of Heart Disease Biomarker Cardiac Troponin I.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 May 8. Epub 2018 May 8.

Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, V5Z 4E8 Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The development of androgenetic alopecia is associated with a risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, but the association of alopecia areata with cardiovascular diseases in humans is largely unexplored. We measured the plasma level of two common cardiovascular disease markers, cardiac troponin I and C-reactive protein, in alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia affected subjects. Also, we investigated the possible presence of pro-apoptotic factors in the plasma of hair loss subjects. Read More

Toll-like Receptor 3 Agonist, Polyinosinic-polycytidylic Acid, Upregulates Carbonic Anhydrase II in Human Keratinocytes.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 May 8. Epub 2018 May 8.

Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore 636921, Singapore.

Carbonic anhydrases are ubiquitously expressed enzymes that reversibly hydrate carbon dioxide to bicarbonate and protons. While the main function of carbonic anhydrases is to regulate pH and osmotic balance, their involvement in other physiological processes remains to be explored. This study analysed changes in mRNA and protein levels of carbonic anhydrase II in human primary keratinocytes treated with various toll-like receptor agonists and cytokines. Read More

Tofacitinib Represses the Janus Kinase-Signal Transducer and Activators of Transcription Signalling Pathway in Keratinocytes.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 May 8. Epub 2018 May 8.

Department of Medicine, Dermatology and Venereology Unit, Karolinska Institutet, 171 76 Stockholm, Sweden.

Tofacitinib is a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, which has shown efficacy in treating psoriasis. The mode of action of tofacitinib is not completely understood but it has been thought to be mediated by the inhibition of CD4+ T-cell activation. Here, we investigated whether the molecular targets of tofacitinib are expressed in keratinocytes, and whether tofacitinib can modulate the activity of the JAK/Signal Transducer and Activators of Transcription (STAT)-pathway in keratinocytes.

Eosinophils are a Major Source of Interleukin-31 in Bullous Pemphigoid.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 Apr 24. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Hannover Medical School, DE-30625 Hannover, Germany.

Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is characterized by substantial skin and blood eosinophilia as well as intensive pruritus. Since the pruritogenic cytokine interleukin (IL)-31 is increased in inflammatory skin diseases the aim of this study was to determine whether IL-31 plays a role in BP. Using immunofluorescence, IL-31 expression was analysed in eosinophils derived from blister fluids and skin from patients with BP and IL-31 levels in blister fluids, serum and culture supernatants were determined by enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA).

Gene Expression Profiling of the Intact Dermal Sheath Cup of Human Hair Follicles.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 Apr 24. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Department of Dermatology, Toho University Ohashi Medical Center, 2-17-6 Ohashi, Meguro-ku, Tokyo, 153-8515, Japan.

Cells that constitute the dermal papillae of hair follicles might be derived from the dermal sheath, the peribulbar component of which is the dermal sheath cup. The dermal sheath cup is thought to include the progenitor cells of the dermal papillae and possesses hair inductive potential; however, it has not yet been well characterized. This study investigated the gene expression profile of the intact dermal sheath cup, and identified dermal sheath cup signature genes, including extracellular matrix components and bone morphogenetic protein-binding molecules, as well as transforming frowth factor beta 1 as an upstream regulator.

Oesophageal involvement in mucous membrane pemphigoid is considered rare, but it may be underdiagnosed. To assess the incidence of oesophageal involvement in a group of patients with newly diagnosed mucous membrane pemphigoid we retrospectively analysed the medical records of 30 consecutive patients with mucous membrane pemphigoid diagnosed between 2006 and 2016 at the Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Würzburg.

Effect of Age on Melanoma Risk, Prognosis and Treatment Response.

Acta Derm Venereol 2018 Apr 12. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Department of Medical Sciences, Section of Dermatology, University of Turin, IT-10126 Turin, Italy.

As for all types of cancer, the incidence of melanoma increases with age. However, naevus counts (the principal risk factor for melanoma) decrease with age; hence the relationship between ageing and melanoma is complex. Subjects who maintain a high naevus count after the age of 50 years are more likely to be affected by melanoma, as their lesions do not senesce. Read More
