Wounding Therapies for Prevention of Photocarcinogenesis.

Front Oncol 2021 7;11:813132. Epub 2022 Jan 7.

Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology, Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University, Dayton, OH, United States.

The occurrence of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is closely linked with advanced age and ultraviolet-B (UVB) exposure. More specifically, the development of NMSC is linked to diminished insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) signaling from senescent dermal fibroblasts in geriatric skin. Consequently, keratinocyte IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) remains inactive, resulting in failure to induce appropriate protective responses including DNA repair and cell cycle checkpoint signaling.

J Clin Med 2021 Dec 27;11(1). Epub 2021 Dec 27.

Plastic Surgery Unit, University of Campania "Luigi Vanvitelli", 80120 Napoli, Italy.

Scars are a common disfiguring sequela of various events such as acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, surgery, trauma, and burns, which can lead to serious psychosocial problems with a negative effect on the quality of life. Many conventional approaches have been proposed for the treatment of scars, including surgical techniques, dermabrasion, chemical peels, topical silicone gel, 5-fluorouracile and dermal fillers injection or autologous fat transfer for atrophic scars, and corticosteroids injection for hypertrophic and keloid scars; however, they have sporadic effects. Ablative lasers, such as carbon dioxide laser or Erbium Yag laser, are associated with many collateral effects limiting their application. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Allergology, University Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany.

The autosomal-dominant genodermatoses Darier disease and Hailey-Hailey disease present special challenges to dermatologists. Despite their similar pathogenesis featuring impaired adhesion of suprabasal keratinocytes as a result of defective ATPases in epidermal calcium channels, the two diseases differ considerably in clinical presentation and therapeutic options. Darier disease is characterized by reddish brown, keratotic papules in seborrheic and intertriginous areas, which may coalesce into extensive lesions. Read More

The Pathogenesis and Management of Acne-Induced Post-inflammatory Hyperpigmentation.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2021 Nov 1;22(6):829-836. Epub 2021 Sep 1.

Department of Dermatology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Acne vulgaris is a common inflammatory disease. Among patients with darker skin phototypes (Fitzpatrick III-VI), the inflammatory processes of acne stimulate excess melanogenesis and abnormal melanin deposition, leading to pigmentary sequelae known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and post-inflammatory erythema in all skin tones, although post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is more common in darker skin and post-inflammatory erythema in lighter skin. These pigmentary alterations can be long lasting and are often more distressing to patients than the active acne lesions. Read More

Adv Wound Care (New Rochelle) 2022 06;11(6):311-329

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, USA.

An understanding of the physiology of wound healing and scarring is necessary to minimize surgical scar formation. By reducing tension across the healing wound, eliminating excess inflammation and infection, and encouraging perfusion to healing areas, surgeons can support healing and minimize scarring. Preoperatively, newer techniques focused on incision placement to minimize tension, skin sterilization to minimize infection and inflammation, and control of comorbid factors to promote a healing process with minimal scarring are constantly evolving.
