Remodeling of dermal adipose tissue alleviates cutaneous toxicity induced by anti-EGFR therapy.

Elife 2022 03 24;11. Epub 2022 Mar 24.

School of Biomedical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China.

Anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapy-associated cutaneous toxicity is a syndrome characterized by papulopustular rash, local inflammation, folliculitis, and microbial infection, resulting in a decrease in quality of life and dose interruption. However, no effective clinical intervention is available for this adverse effect. Here, we report the atrophy of dermal white adipose tissue (dWAT), a highly plastic adipose tissue with various skin-specific functions, correlates with rash occurrence and exacerbation in a murine model of EGFR inhibitor-induced rash.

J Infect Chemother 2022 Jul 9;28(7):987-990. Epub 2022 Mar 9.

Department of Infectious Diseases, Nagoya University Hospital, Aichi, Japan; Department of Infectious Diseases, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Aichi, Japan.

Malassezia furfur is a lipophilic, yeast-like fungus that forms part of the normal human skin microflora and is associated with a wide range of infections, such as pityriasis versicolor, folliculitis, and systemic infections in immunocompromised patients. Although matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry has enabled rapid identification of Malassezia species, it is still a challenge to diagnose systemic infections because Malassezia fungemia can often be missed by automated blood culture systems. We report a case in which M. Read More
