The Role of Vitamins and Minerals in Hair Loss: A Review.

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2018 Dec 13. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, 1475 NW 12th Ave. Suite 2175, Miami, FL, 33136, USA.

People commonly inquire about vitamin and mineral supplementation and diet as a means to prevent or manage dermatological diseases and, in particular, hair loss. Answering these queries is frequently challenging, given the enormous and conflicting evidence that exists on this subject. There are several reasons to suspect a role for micronutrients in non-scarring alopecia. Read More

Trabectedin in combination with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin in patients with ovarian tumors.

Mol Clin Oncol 2018 Dec 1;9(6):635-639. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

Department of Oncology, University of Florence, I-50134 Florence, Italy.

The majority of patients with ovarian cancer will experience relapse and thus require second-line therapy. While platinum-based therapies are the primary treatments for refractory disease other options are required, particularly for those with partially platinum-sensitive disease as their response rates are lower. Agents that can resensitize relapsed ovarian cancers to platinum, including trabectedin, are therefore of increasing interest. Read More

Bone marrow-derived epithelial cells and hair follicle stem cells contribute to development of chronic cutaneous neoplasms.

Nat Commun 2018 Dec 13;9(1):5293. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, Columbia University, New York, 10032, NY, USA.

We used allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and a mouse multistage cutaneous carcinogenesis model to probe recruitment of bone marrow-derived epithelial cells (BMDECs) in skin tumors initiated with the carcinogen, dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA), and promoted with 12-O-tetradecanolyphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). BMDECs clustered in the lesional epithelium, expressed cytokeratins, proliferated, and stratified. We detected cytokeratin induction in plastic-adherent bone marrow cells (BMCs) cultured in the presence of filter-separated keratinocytes (KCs) and bone morphogenetic protein 5 (BMP5). Read More

Treatment of actinic keratosis through inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2: Potential mechanism of action of diclofenac sodium 3% in hyaluronic acid 2.5.

Dermatol Ther 2018 Dec 6:e12800. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

DISSAL Section of Dermatology, University of Genoa-IRCCS, AOU San Martino-IST, Genoa, Italy.

Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and its metabolic product prostaglandin E (PGE ) are induced in response to growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, tumour promoters, activated oncogenes and, in the skin, ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Accumulating evidence suggests a role for the COX-2/PGE pathway in tumourigenesis in various tissue types including cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. There is also strong evidence for a role in the development of actinic keratoses (AKs) - common dysplastic lesions of the skin associated with UV radiation overexposure - considered as part of a continuum with skin cancer.
