T lymphocyte phenotype of contact allergic patients: experience with nickel and p-phenylenediamine.

Contact Dermatitis 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, University of Manchester.

Background: There is considerable interest in understanding the immunological variables that have the greatest influence on the effectiveness of sensitization by contact allergens, particularly in the context of developing new paradigms for risk assessment of novel compounds OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between patch test score for 3 different contact allergens and the characteristics of T-cell responses.

Contact allergy in children with atopic dermatitis: a retrospective study.

Endocr Metab Immune Disord Drug Targets 2019 Feb 11. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Biomedical Science and Human Oncology, Dermatological Clinic, University of Bari, IT-70124 Bari. Italy.

Backgound: The relationship between atopic dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis is frequently debated, particularly in children. The impaired skin barrier of atopic subjects can facilitate the penetration of exogenous agents and its mutations in filaggrin gene might be implicated in an increased risk to develop contact dermatitis. Moreover, atopic children are protractedly exposed to chemical substances contained in skincare products from an early age. Read More

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc, Tarrytown, NY, USA.

Moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) can affect different parts of the body, and some adults have more localized AD, such as face and neck involvement. Compared with non-exposed areas, such as the trunk, exposed areas such as the face, neck, and hands could be more vulnerable to environmental allergens and irritants and can be more refractory to topical therapies. Local adverse effects of topical therapies are more likely to occur on the face and neck. Read More

Ghrelin protects against contact dermatitis and psoriasiform skin inflammation by antagonizing TNF-α/NF-κB signaling pathways.

Sci Rep 2019 Feb 4;9(1):1348. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Orthopedics, Qilu Hospital, Shandong University, Jinan, China.

Contact dermatitis and psoriasis are skin disorders caused by immune dysregulation, yet much remains unknown about their underlying mechanisms. Ghrelin, a recently discovered novel peptide and potential endogenous anti-inflammatory factor expressed in the epidermis, is involved in skin repair and disease. In this study, we investigated the expression pattern and therapeutic effect of ghrelin in both contact dermatitis and psoriasis mouse models induced by oxazolone (OXA) and imiquimod (IMQ), respectively, and in TNF-α-stimulated RAW264.

Cross-elicitation responses to 2-methoxymethyl-p-phenylenediamine in p-phenylenediamine highly allergic volunteers using allergy alert test: the Italian experience.

Eur Ann Allergy Clin Immunol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Summary: Allergic contact dermatitis after exposure to p-phenylenediamine (PPD)-containing hair dye products is a common and important clinical problem. Because there is a high rate of cross-elicitation of allergic contact dermatitis to other important hair dye products (such as p-toluene diamine [PTD] and other aminophenol hair dyes) in PPD allergic patients, safer alternative dyes with excellent hair coloring options are needed. We studied 2-methoxy methyl-PPD (Me-PPD), a chemical derivative of PPD for tolerance versus cross-elicitation in a cohort of eight PPD-allergic volunteers. Read More

Chronic inflammation's tumor-promoting potential is well-recognized; however, the mechanism underlying the development of this immune environment is unknown. Studying the transition from acute, tumor-suppressive to chronic, tumor-promoting allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) revealed how tumor-promoting chronic inflammation develops. Epidermis-derived interleukin (IL)-33 up-regulation and its induction of regulatory T cell (Treg) accumulation in the skin preceded the transition from acute to chronic ACD and triggered the tumor-promoting immune environment in chronic ACD.
