    Cross-Sectional Comparisons of Patient-Reported Disease Control, Disease Severity, and Symptom Frequency in Children with Atopic Dermatitis.
    Br J Dermatol 2017 Feb 24. Epub 2017 Feb 24.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia.
    Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin that commonly affects children. Research in AD has utilized an increasing variety of scoring measures to monitor disease, and this lack of standardization has been cited as an obstacle to evidence-based decision making. The Harmonizing Outcome Measures for Eczema (HOME) initiative aims to establish consensus on a core set of outcome measures for AD and currently recommends the Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM) for recording patient-reported outcomes.

    Current status in diagnosis of atopic dermatitis in China.
    Allergy 2017 Feb 24. Epub 2017 Feb 24.
    Department of Dermatology, Xinhua Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.
    In China, eczema and atopic dermatitis (AD) have been traditionally considered as 2 distinct entities. Eczema typically referred to the milder phenotypes or to phenotypes with atypical morphology and distribution of lesions and many dermatologists have ever recognized that the "eczema" diagnosed clinically by them is actually milder phenotypes or phenotypes with atypical morphology and distribution of lesions of AD. Moreover, AD, contact dermatitis, diaper dermatitis, perioral dermatitis, halo dermatitis, pompholyx, seborrheic dermatitis, etc. Read More

    Effects of 6-hydroxyceramides on the thermotropic phase behavior and permeability of model skin lipid membranes.
    Langmuir 2017 Feb 23. Epub 2017 Feb 23.
    Ceramides (Cer) based on 6-hydroxysphingosine are important components of the human skin barrier, the stratum corneum. Although diminished concentrations of 6-hydroxyCer have been detected in skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, our knowledge of these unusual sphingolipids, which have only been found in the skin, is limited. In this work, we investigate the biophysical behavior of N-lignoceroyl 6-hydroxysphingosine (Cer NH) in multilamellar lipid membranes composed of Cer/free fatty acids (C16-C24)/cholesterol/cholesteryl sulfate.

    The Role of Neurotrophins in Inflammation and Allergy.
    Vitam Horm 2017 29;104:313-341. Epub 2016 Nov 29.
    Center for Pediatric Research, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, United States; Pediatric Institute and Children's Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, United States. Electronic address:
    Allergic inflammation is the result of a specific pattern of cellular and humoral responses leading to the activation of the innate and adaptive immune system, which, in turn, results in physiological and structural changes affecting target tissues such as the airways and the skin. Eosinophil activation and the production of soluble mediators such as IgE antibodies are pivotal features in the pathophysiology of allergic diseases. In the past few years, however, convincing evidence has shown that neurons and other neurosensory structures are not only a target of the inflammatory process but also participate in the regulation of immune responses by actively releasing soluble mediators.

    Biomed Res Int 2017 22;2017:8701801. Epub 2017 Jan 22.
    Mechanobiology Laboratory, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, 65 Tsurumai, Nagoya 466-8550, Japan.
    Cutaneous wound healing is accelerated by mechanical stretching, and treatment with hyperforin, a major component of a traditional herbal medicine and a known TRPC6 activator, further enhances the acceleration. We recently revealed that this was due to the enhancement of ATP-Ca(2+) signaling in keratinocytes by hyperforin treatment. However, the low aqueous solubility and easy photodegradation impede the topical application of hyperforin for therapeutic purposes. Read More

    Non-topical management of recalcitrant paediatric atopic dermatitis.
    Arch Dis Child 2017 Feb 16. Epub 2017 Feb 16.
    Dermatology service, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, Singapore.
    Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic, pruritic skin disease in children. As the incidence of AD increases, especially in high-income countries, paediatricians may see an increasing number of recalcitrant AD cases in their practice. Although these cases are principally managed by paediatric dermatologists, it is important for paediatricians to be aware of the use and side effects of non-topical treatment like phototherapy and systemic agents as well as the evidence for alternative treatment, which caregivers may ask about.

    Glucosylsphingosine Activates Serotonin Receptor 2a and 2b: Implication of a Novel Itch Signaling Pathway.
    Biomol Ther (Seoul) 2017 Feb 17. Epub 2017 Feb 17.
    College of Pharmacy, Gachon University, Incheon 21936, Republic of Korea.
    Recent reports claimed that glucosylsphingosine (GS) is highly accumulated and specifically evoking itch-scratch responses in the skins of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients. However, it was unclear how GS can trigger itch-scratch responses, since there were no known molecular singling pathways revealed yet. In the present study, it was verified for the first time that GS can activate mouse serotonin receptor 2a (mHtr2a) and 2b (mHtr2b), but not 2c (mHtr2c) that are expressed in HEK293T cells. Read More
