Pentavalent Antimonials Combined with Other Therapeutic Alternatives for the Treatment of Cutaneous and Mucocutaneous Leishmaniasis: A Systematic Review.

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 24;2018:9014726. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Department of Clinical Analysis and Biomedicine, State University Maringa, Avenida Colombo, 5790 Jardim Universitário, 87020-900 Maringá, PR, Brazil.

The first choice drugs for the treatment of cutaneous and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis are pentavalent antimonials, sodium stibogluconate, or meglumine antimoniate. However, the treatment with these drugs is expensive, can cause serious adverse effects, and is not always effective. The combination of two drugs by different routes or the combination of an alternative therapy with systemic therapy can increase the efficacy and decrease the collateral effects caused by the reference drugs.

Investigation of Interleukin-27 in the Sera of Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer Patients.

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 19;2018:8321302. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Shiraz Institute for Cancer Research, School of medicine, Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran.

IL-27 has been shown to have both tumor promoting and suppressing functions. IL-27, with its diverse influences on immune responses, has not been studied extensively in nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSC), including Squamous and Basal Cell Carcinomas (SCC and BCC), and its roles in tumor initiation, progression, and its probable use in NMSC treatment have yet to be unveiled. A cross-sectional analytical study was designed to investigate the serum levels of IL-27 in NMSC patients in comparison to normal individuals. Read More

Dirk Höfer

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 19;2018:7043438. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

Hohenstein Institute for Textile Innovation, Schlosssteige 1, 74357 Bönnigheim, Germany.

Background: Antibacterial clothes are classified as a complementary treatment in line with antisepsis, although meta-studies are unable to find significant improvements of eczemas.

Methods: The antibacterial effectiveness of conventional AD clothes was compared across each other by (i) standard suspension tests for the appraisal of antibacterial products and (ii) a real-life setup of affected AD skin using colonised artificial skin, to assess if functional clothes are effective under practical wear conditions. Additionally, the interaction of the fibre types with a moisturising cream was evaluated during a real wearing situation and after domestic laundry. Read More

Cutaneous Tuberculosis: Clinicopathologic Arrays and Diagnostic Challenges.

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 9;2018:7201973. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

M.Sc. Medical Microbiology, Tri-Chandra Multiple Campus, Tribhuvan University, Nepal.

The clinicopathological manifestations of cutaneous tuberculosis are diverse. The precise diagnosis is often overlooked, due to clinical presentations as those of cutaneous diseases with different etiology and the relative paucity of the pathogens in the lesions. Meanwhile, almost all of the diagnostic methods confer lower sensitivity and specificities which augments further diagnostic challenges. Read More

Experience with Treating Lentigo Maligna with Definitive Radiotherapy.

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 15;2018:7439807. Epub 2018 Jul 15.

Melanoma Institute Australia, Poche Centre, Crows Nest, Australia.

Lentigo maligna (LM) is a form of melanoma in situ that occurs on exposed, sun-damaged skin; LM can progress to invasive melanoma. Conventional surgical treatment is the preferred management option as it is usually a one-treatment episode and generates a histopathology report that records completion of excision. Some patients may not be surgical candidates due to comorbidities, patient preference, impact on function, and cosmesis or they have failed surgery with a positive margin. Read More

Department of Plastic Surgery and Breast Surgery, Zealand University Hospital, Roskilde, Denmark.

The mechanism behind the biologic actions of honey as a wound remedy has been intensively studied; however, there is no published data regarding any antibacterial effect of honey derived from Danish flora. We surveyed 11 honeys of various Danish floral sources for their antibacterial activity and compared them to a culinary processed commercial honey (Jakobsens) and a raw and a medical grade Manuka () honey using the agar-well diffusion method. We tested the effect on three gram-positive bacteria (two strains of and one strain of ) and two gram-negative bacteria ( and ). Read More

Good quality wound dressings should have exceptional properties for usage, such as being able to remove excess wound exudates, having rapid dehydration, and providing optimal water vapour permeability. This study evaluated and compared the morphological and physical properties of six different commercially absorbent wound dressings in Thailand: two hydrocolloids, two alginates, and two foams. These wound dressings are available in a variety of components and structures, some of which have a multilayer structure. Read More

Evaluation of Lipid Profile in Patients with Cherry Angioma: A Case-Control Study in Guilan, Iran.

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 13;2018:4639248. Epub 2018 May 13.

Department of Internal Medicine, Nassau University Medical Center, 2201 Hempstead Turnpike, East Meadow, NY 11554, USA.

Background: Cherry angioma is the most common type of acquired cutaneous vascular proliferation which would increase with aging due to some angiogenic factors but the exact pathogenesis is unknown. Usually angiogenic factors are synthesized in human body to compensate occlusive effects of atherogenic agents such as serum lipids. Our hypothesis was that increased levels of these angiogenic factors could be a trigger for development of cherry angioma. Read More

Determination of Spearman Correlation Coefficient () to Evaluate the Linear Association of Dermal Collagen and Elastic Fibers in the Perspectives of Skin Injury.

Dermatol Res Pract 2018 2;2018:4512840. Epub 2018 May 2.

Department of Anatomy, Melaka Manipal Medical College, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, Manipal Campus, Manipal 576104, India.

Background: Difference in scar formation at different sites, in different directions at the same site, but with changes in the elasticity of skin with age, sex, and race or in some pathological conditions, is well known to clinicians. The inappropriate collagen syntheses and delayed or lack of epithelialization are known to induce scar formation with negligible elasticity at the site of damage. Changes in the elasticity of scars may be due to an unequal distribution of dermal collagen (C) and elastic (E) fibers. Read More
