    Inflammation, Chimiokines et Immunopathologie, INSERM, Fac. de pharmacie - Univ.Paris-Sud, Université Paris-Saclay, 92290, Châtenay-Malabry, France.
    Hypersensitivity reaction or allergy, initially perceived as a secondary disorder, is now believed to be a major public health. For instance, contact dermatitis is a type IV delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction to skin allergens. An estimated 15-20% of the general population has acquired contact allergy. Read More

    Contact allergy in children with atopic dermatitis: a systematic review.
    Br J Dermatol 2017 May 3. Epub 2017 May 3.
    Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Aarhus University Hospital.
    The importance of contact allergy in children with atopic dermatitis is frequently debated. Previously, patients with atopic dermatitis were believed to have a reduced ability to produce a type IV immunologic response. However, this belief has been challenged and authors have highlighted the risk of underestimating and overlooking allergic contact dermatitis in children with atopic dermatitis. Read More

    Allergic contact dermatitis following drug rash due to chlorpheniramine maleate.
    Clin Case Rep 2017 May 17;5(5):718-719. Epub 2017 Mar 17.
    Department of General MedicineChiba University HospitalChiba-cityJapan.
    Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is one of the common causes of facial swelling. Clinical clues for diagnosing ACD include a rash that spares the area behind the ears, nasolabial folds, and under the chin. Once clinicians suspect ACD, the substances that cause contact dermatitis should be avoided. Read More

    E-cadherin-mediated Cell Contact Controls the Epidermal Damage Response in Radiation Dermatitis.
    J Invest Dermatol 2017 Apr 26. Epub 2017 Apr 26.
    Institute of Life Sciences, Fuzhou University, Fuzhou, Fujian, China. Electronic address:
    Radiotherapy is a primary oncological treatment modality, which also damages normal tissue including the skin and causes radiation dermatitis (RD). Here, we explore the mechanism of acute epidermal damage in RD. Two distinctive phases in the damage response were identified: an early destructive phase where a burst of reactive oxygen species (ROS) induces loss of E-cadherin-mediated cell contact, followed by a regenerative phase where Wnt and Hippo signaling are activated.
