Cystine-thiamin-containing hair-growth formulation modulates the response to UV radiation in an in vitro model for growth-limiting conditions of human keratinocytes.

J Photochem Photobiol B 2018 Dec 17;189:318-325. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Merz Pharmaceuticals GmbH, Alfred-Wegener-Straße 2, 60438 Frankfurt, Germany. Electronic address:

Background: Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is known to be harmful to normal human epidermal keratinocytes (NHEKs) of the epidermal skin layer, as well as to hair-follicle-associated keratinocytes. An oral formulation containing l-cystine, thiamin, calcium d-pantothenate, medicinal yeast, keratin and p-aminobenzoic acid (Panto[vi]gar®) has demonstrated clinical efficacy for the treatment of diffuse telogen effluvium; however, its mode of action at the cellular level, and in particular whether protective mechanisms are involved, has yet to be elucidated.

Objectives: To assess the capacity of ingredients of this oral formulation, both separately and in combination, to modulate the effects of UVR in growth-limited NHEKs in vitro. Read More

Proprietary Herbal Extract Downregulates the Gene Expression of IL-1α in HaCaT Cells: Possible Implications Against Nonscarring Alopecia.

Med Arch 2018 Apr;72(2):136-140

Biota Laboratories, R&D Center, Sancaktepe, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Currently while, topical minoxidil and oral finasteride are the only medications approved in androgenetic alopecia (AGA), the cause oriented treatment and immunsupressive treatment are being performed in telogen effluvium (TE) and alopecia areata (AA) respectively. Considering the inflammatory factors in the pathogenesis of these three nonscarring alopecia forms, we have formulated a mixture for topical usage composed of six different herbal extracts (HE) which have already known antiinflammatory and antioxidant features.

Materials And Methods: In addition to performing the phytochemical analysis of HE, we detected the gene expression level of IL-1α, the crucial hair loss mediator, for the putative efficacy in nonscarring alopecia. Read More

Hair and Scalp Changes in Cutaneous and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2018 Oct;19(5):679-694

Division of Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, 270 Rama VI Road, Ratchathewi, Bangkok, 10400, Thailand.

Cutaneous and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) commonly involves the hair and scalp. Alopecia can result from direct activity of disease on the scalp or from the state of physical stress in the form of telogen effluvium. Discoid lupus erythematosus and lupus panniculitis/profundus are known to cause scarring alopecia, while accumulation of recent studies has shown that non-scarring alopecia in SLE may have different subtypes, comprising lupus erythematosus-specific and lupus erythematosus-nonspecific changes on histology.

Naked Hair Shafts as a Marker of Cicatricial Alopecia.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Jul;40(7):498-501

Departments of Dermatology, and.

Naked hair shafts (NHS) are free-floating hair shafts devoid of surrounding epithelium, supporting structures, and/or embedded in inflammation that may result from destruction of hair follicles by scarring processes such as inflammation and fibroplasia. Extensive examination of NHS has not been performed in scalp biopsies of alopecia. We retrospectively evaluated 622 scalp biopsies of alopecia [345 cicatricial alopecias (central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia, lichen planopilaris, discoid lupus erythematosus, acne keloidalis nuchae, and folliculitis decalvans] and 277 non-cicatricial alopecias [alopecia areata, androgenic alopecia, telogen effluvium, and psoriatic alopecia)] for the presence of NHS.

Elastic Staining in Differentiating Between Follicular Streamers and Follicular Scars in Horizontal Scalp Biopsy Sections.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Apr;40(4):254-258

Dermatology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL.

Background: Accurate identification of follicular streamers versus follicular scars on horizontal scalp biopsy sections is important to differentiate between cicatricial and noncicatricial alopecias. However, distinguishing between them can be difficult especially in nonoptimal specimens. The utility of elastic Verhoeff-Van Gieson (EVG) stain in cicatricial alopecias has been described on vertical sections, but its evaluation on horizontal sections has not been performed. Read More

Presence of Mast Cells and Mast Cell Degranulation in Scalp Biopsies of Telogen Effluvium.

Int J Trichology 2017 Jan-Mar;9(1):25-29

Department of Dermatology, Saint Louis University, St. Louis, MO, USA.

Background: Telogen effluvium (TE) is a type of acquired, diffuse alopecia that occurs due to an abnormal shift of scalp hair follicles from anagen to telogen, leading to premature shedding of hair. Previous studies have suggested the existence of a neuroimmunologic "brain-hair follicle" axis, in which mast cells have been implicated as an important link between the nervous system and immunologic system.

Objective: The current study sought to investigate the role of mast cell presence and mast cell degranulation in the pathogenesis of TE. Read More

Authors:
Alfredo Rebora

Skin Appendage Disord 2017 Mar 28;3(1):36-38. Epub 2017 Jan 28.

University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy.

Chronic telogen effluvium is most often intermittent, alternating periods of spontaneous remissions with episodes of unexplained relapses. This article reports the case of a male who was able to graphically depict the sequence of emotional events and the corresponding severity of his telogen effluvium during 31 months. The case is interesting as it documents for the first time the intermittency of chronic telogen effluvium and the pathogenetic role of emotional strains, and it stresses the importance of the modified wash test in evaluating the severity of hair shedding.

The Hair Shedding Visual Scale: A Quick Tool to Assess Hair Loss in Women.

Dermatol Ther (Heidelb) 2017 Mar 20;7(1):155-165. Epub 2017 Feb 20.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, 1475 NW 12th Avenue Suite 2175, Miami, FL, USA.

Introduction: Hair shedding is a common consequence of the normal hair cycle that changes with internal and external factors. Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is difficult to assess in terms of shedding severity as the conscious perception of hair shedding varies according to each individual, and most utilized methods are semi-invasive or very time consuming. In this study, we establish and validate a hair-shedding scale for women with thick hair of different lengths. Read More
