Extracorporeal Photopheresis: A Case of Immunotherapy Ahead of Its Time.

Transfus Med Hemother 2020 Jun 27;47(3):226-235. Epub 2020 May 27.

Department of Dermatology and Venerology, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria.

Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) is a cell-based immunotherapy that involves the reinfusion of autologous leukocytes after exposure to psoralen and UVA. The treatment has been used for over 30 years, at first on patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and later for the management of patients with graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), sclerosing disorders, atopic dermatitis, and other diseases that may share the common driving factor of a pathogenic T-cell clone or clones in blood circulation. Patients with clinical improvement mount an antigen-specific immune response that may have tolerance traits in the case of GvHD or anticlonal cytotoxic characteristics in the case of CTCL. Read More

Confirmation of the presence of zoonotic Trichobilharzia franki following a human cercarial dermatitis outbreak in recreational water in Slovakia.

Parasitol Res 2020 Jun 20. Epub 2020 Jun 20.

Institute of Parasitology, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Košice, Slovakia.

Human cercarial dermatitis is a parasitic disease that causes an allergic reaction in the skin (swimmer's itch) as a consequence of contact with cercariae of bird schistosomes present in water, mainly of the genus Trichobilharzia Skrjabin et Zakarow, 1920. The main objective of the study was to confirm the presence of the zoonotic disease agent following reports of human infections in recreational water in Slovakia. We identified two species of freshwater snails at Košice Lake, Radix auricularia (Linnaeus, 1758) and Physa acuta (Draparnaud, 1805). Read More

Delayed hypersensitivity reaction to metal ions is rare and has been mostly documented among patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty with metal-on-metal bearing surfaces. Nonetheless, to our knowledge, only a few cases associated with spinal arthrodesis have been reported in the literature. The aim of this case report was to describe the clinical features of a rare case of delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction to nickel that occurred after an extraordinarily long period of time (approximately 15 years) after spinal arthrodesis.

Atopic Dermatitis: A Review of Current Diagnostic Criteria and a Proposed Update to Management.

J Drugs Dermatol 2020 Mar;19(3):244-248

The diagnosis of atopic dermatitis (AD) remains primarily a clinical diagnosis, in which several clinical signs and symptoms including pruritus, the presence and location of skin lesions, and a personal or family history of atopic conditions are used to facilitate a diagnosis. In recent decades, several well-established sets of criteria have been developed to aid diagnosis. With increased awareness of AD and the recent development of systemic immunomodulators to treat the condition, there exists a need to further define and consolidate the current diagnostic criteria while refining our current understanding of the clinical features of AD.

Department of Surgery (Dermatology), Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, Hanover, New Hampshire.

Background: Metal hypersensitivity reactions (MHR) as a cause of implant-related complications are highly debated and recommendations regarding pre-procedural allergy evaluation vary dramatically.

Objective: To examine patients referred before or after device implantation and identify factors that can be useful to guide the value of patch testing.

Methods: Patients who underwent patch testing pre- or post-device implantation between July 2006 and September 2016 were analysed retrospectively. Read More

Topical antibiotics in the dermatological clinical practice: indications, efficacy and adverse effects.

Dermatol Ther 2020 Jun 12:e13824. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Biomedical Sciences and Human Oncology, Section of Dermatology, University of Bari, Bari, Italy.

Topical antibiotic therapy is a central component of patient management for several skin conditions, including acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, rosacea, impetigo or other superinfected dermatitis, prevention of wound infections. Moreover, particular situations, such as skin diseases of bacterial origin in pregnancy and infants often warrant topical therapy. However, the occurrence of local delayed hypersensitivity reactions and the rising rate of antibiotic resistance are becoming great challenges faced by many dermatologists today. Read More

Cross-Reactivity of Palladium in a Murine Model of Metal-Induced Allergic Contact Dermatitis.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Jun 5;21(11). Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of Clinical Immunology, Clinical Research Center for Rheumatology and Allergy, Sagamihara National Hospital, National Hospital Organization, 18-1 Sakuradai, Minami-ku, Sagamihara, Kanagawa 252-0392, Japan.

Metal allergy is usually diagnosed by patch testing, however, the results do not necessarily reflect the clinical symptoms because of cross-reactivity between different metals. In this study, we established the novel mouse model of cross-reactive metal allergy, and aimed to elucidate the immune response in terms of T-cell receptor repertoire. This model was classified into two groups: the sensitization to nickel and challenge with palladium group, and the sensitization to chromium and challenge with palladium group. Read More
