    Prediction of skin sensitization potency sub-categories using peptide reactivity data.
    Toxicol In Vitro 2017 Sep 4;45(Pt 1):134-145. Epub 2017 Sep 4.
    BASF SE, Experimental Toxicology and Ecology, Ludwigshafen, Germany. Electronic address:
    While the skin sensitization hazard of substances can already be identified using non-animal methods, the classification of potency sub-categories GHS-1A and 1B is still challenging. Potency can be measured by the dose at which an effect is observed; since the protein-adduct formation is determining the dose of the allergen in the skin, peptide reactivity was used to assess the potency. The Direct Peptide Reactivity Assay (DPRA; one concentration and reaction-time) did not sufficiently discriminate between sub-categories 1A and 1B (56% accuracy compared to LLNA data, n=124).

    Polymorphic light eruption and IL-1 family members: any difference with allergic contact dermatitis?
    Photochem Photobiol Sci 2017 Sep;16(9):1471-1479
    Department of Medicine, Surgery and Dentistry, "Scuola Medica Salernitana" University of Salerno, Italy.
    Polymorphic light eruption (PLE) is described as a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction (DTHR) toward a de novo light-induced antigen, yet to be identified. In effect, the inflammatory pathways of PLE and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) share common patterns in terms of the mediators involved from the innate and adaptive immune system participating in the DTHR. As we have previously highlighted the role of interleukin (IL)-1 family members in ACD, we hypothesised that the same mediators could have similar functions in PLE. Read More
