[Treatment strategies in psoriatic arthritis].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2020 Jun 3;145(11):773-780. Epub 2020 Jun 3.

Abteilung Rheumatologie, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt/Main.

Psoriatic arthritis is a heterogeneous immune-mediated disease that usually involves skin and joints but can also affect entheses and extraarticular structures in the disease course. In addition, associated diseases must be considered when choosing the appropriate therapeutic strategy. Different recommendations for treatment of psoriatic arthritis are available for clinical use.

IgE sensitivity to Malassezia pachydermatis and mite allergens in dogs with atopic dermatitis.

Vet Immunol Immunopathol 2020 May 21;226:110070. Epub 2020 May 21.

Department of Veterinary Microbiology, School of Veterinary Medicine, Azabu University, 1-17-71 Fuchinobe, Chuo-ku, Sagamihara, Kanagawa, 252-5201, Japan. Electronic address:

In this study, dogs with atopic dermatitis were separated into non-food-induced atopic dermatitis (NFIAD) group (n = 15) and food-induced atopic dermatitis (FIAD) group (n = 37) based on an elimination diet test. IgE reactivity for crude Malassezia pachydermatis (M. pachydermatis) and house dust mites (HDM) allergen extracts was investigated in the two groups using fluorometric enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and intradermal skin test (IDST).

Skin lesion segmentation via generative adversarial networks with dual discriminators.

Med Image Anal 2020 May 23;64:101716. Epub 2020 May 23.

Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 518000, Shenzhen, China. Electronic address:

Skin lesion segmentation from dermoscopy images is a fundamental yet challenging task in the computer-aided skin diagnosis system due to the large variations in terms of their views and scales of lesion areas. We propose a novel and effective generative adversarial network (GAN) to meet these challenges. Specifically, this network architecture integrates two modules: a skip connection and dense convolution U-Net (UNet-SCDC) based segmentation module and a dual discrimination (DD) module. Read More

Modified Full-Endoscopic Interlaminar Discectomy via an Inferior Endplate Approach for Lumbar Disc Herniation: Retrospective 3-Year Results from 321 Patients.

World Neurosurg 2020 May 31. Epub 2020 May 31.

Department of Spine surgery, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China. Electronic address:

Background: Percutaneous endoscopic interlaminar discectomy (PEID) is widely used as a minimally invasive procedure that shows satisfying outcomes for the treatment of L5/S1 and even L4/5 disc herniation. PEID can be divided into direct and indirect approaches according to the established method of the working channel. The direct approach mainly utilizes the puncture needle directly through the intervertebral space into the intervertebral disc under non-direct vision and insertion of the guidewire into the puncture needle to guide the dilator and working channel to retract the ligamentum flavum, dural sac and nerve roots.

Monitoring PDT effects in basal cell carcinoma treatment using thermal imaging.

Photodiagnosis Photodyn Ther 2020 May 31:101845. Epub 2020 May 31.

Faculty of Medical Sciences in Zabrze, Medical University of Silesia, Department of Internal Medicine, Angiology and Physical Medicine, Batorego 15 St., 41-902 Bytom, Poland. Electronic address:

Background: One of the most frequent type of malignant skin lesion (almost 95 percent of all skin tumours) is basal cell carcinoma (BCC). It is often treated by radiotherapy using ionizing radiation as well by photodynamic therapy (PDT) which is a selective method directed only on cancer cells and well tolerated by patients.

Materials And Methods: Eight male patients of the Department and Clinic of Internal Diseases, Angiology and Physical Medicine in Bytom, Medical University of Silesia, in Katowice, Poland suffering from basal cell carcinoma were monitored by thermovision during the photodynamic therapy. Read More

Mucosal immune responses in Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) juveniles after Tenacibaculum maritimum challenge: A comparative study between ocular and blind sides.

Fish Shellfish Immunol 2020 May 31. Epub 2020 May 31.

Centro Interdisciplinar de Investigação Marinha e Ambiental (CIIMAR), University of Porto, Terminal de Cruzeiros do Porto de Leixões, Av. General Norton de Matos s/n, 4450-208, Porto, Portugal; Department of Cell Biology and Histology. Faculty of Biology, Campus Regional de Excelencia Internacional "Campus Mare Nostrum", University of Murcia, 30100, Murcia, Spain. Electronic address:

Most pathogens start the process of infection at the mucosal surfaces and therefore the mucosal immune response plays an essential role in the course of the infection. Due to the Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis Kaup) condition of flatfish, the present comparative study aimed to analyse several immune-related enzymes as well as the bactericidal activity in the skin mucus from ocular and blind sides. For this purpose, Senegalese sole juveniles were bath challenged with a sub-lethal dose of Tenacibaculum maritimum for 24 h and sampled at 1, 2 and 3 weeks. Read More
