    Contact dermatitis considerations in atopic dermatitis.
    Clin Dermatol 2017 Jul - Aug;35(4):367-374. Epub 2017 Apr 22.
    Department of Dermatology, Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, CA. Electronic address:
    Complex immunologic pathways, influenced by both genetic and environment triggers, contribute to the development of atopic dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis. Suppressing mechanisms between the Th1-driven allergic contact dermatitis and the Th2-driven atopic dermatitis conditions were thought to reduce the simultaneous expression of both; however, recent evidence indicates that pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis are likely to develop clinically relevant positive patch tests and more likely to react to specific allergens, such as lanolin. We review the potential role of skin barrier defects, such as filaggrin mutations and impaired barrier function, including aberrancies in epidermal pH buffering capabilities, which may promote bacterial biofilms and create an environment favoring sensitization.

    Current insights into the role of human β-defensins in atopic dermatitis.
    Clin Exp Immunol 2017 Jul 14. Epub 2017 Jul 14.
    Atopy (Allergy) Research Center, Juntendo University Graduate School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.
    Antimicrobial peptides or host defense peptides are small molecules that display both antimicrobial activities and complex immunomodulatory functions to protect against various diseases. Among these peptides, the human β-defensins (hBDs) are primarily localized in epithelial surfaces, including those of the skin, where they contribute to protective barriers. In atopic dermatitis skin lesions, altered skin barrier and immune dysregulation are believed to be responsible for reduced hBD synthesis. Read More

    Inflammatory and Noninflammatory Itch: Implications in Pathophysiology-Directed Treatments.
    Int J Mol Sci 2017 Jul 10;18(7). Epub 2017 Jul 10.
    Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Chang Gung University, Kaohsiung 833, Taiwan.
    Itch is the main chief complaint in patients visiting dermatologic clinics and has the ability to deeply impair life quality. Itch results from activation of cutaneous nerve endings by noxious stimuli such as inflammatory mediators, neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, causing itch signal transduction from peripheral skin, through the spinal cord and thalamus, to the brain cortex. Primarily noninflammatory diseases, such as uremic pruritus, cause itch through certain pruritogens in the skin. Read More
