α-Sens: The improved ARE-Nrf2-based sensitization screening assay using normalized transcriptional activity.

Toxicology 2020 06 23;439:152476. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

The United Graduate School of Veterinary Science, Yamaguchi University, Japan.

Two non-animal test methods, KeratinoSens™ and LuSens, have been approved by the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) test guidelines for evaluating the sensitization potential of chemicals, and been positioned as a method for appraising key event (KE)-2, namely, the keratinocyte response component of the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) in sensitization process. However, these two methods require separate cytotoxicity tests to determine the concentrations to be tested in the main test. Therefore, we developed a simple and highly accurate KE-2 test method named α-Sens that uses the dual luciferase assay system and attempted a further application of luciferase-based determination of cell viability to calculate the normalized Antioxidant response element (ARE)-mediated transcriptional activity, named normalized ARE Activity (nAA), to evaluate the sensitizing potential of chemicals.

Idealization of correlations between optimal simplified molecular input-line entry system-based descriptors and skin sensitization.

SAR QSAR Environ Res 2019 Jun 24;30(6):447-455. Epub 2019 May 24.

a Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology, Department of Environmental Health Sciences , Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri IRCCS , Milano , Italy.

The Index of Ideality of Correlation (IIC) is a new criterion of the predictive potential for quantitative structure-property/activity relationships. The value of the IIC is a mathematical function sensitive to the value of the correlation coefficient and dispersion (expressed via mean absolute error). The IIC has been applied to develop QSAR models for skin sensitization achieving good predictive potential. Read More

Millepora species (Fire Coral) Sting: A Case Report and Review of Recommended Management.

Wilderness Environ Med 2018 Dec 17;29(4):521-526. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL.

Fire corals (Millepora spp) are the second most common reef-forming organisms and are frequently found in tropical and subtropical waters. Fire corals are not true corals but rather hydrozoans more closely related to jellyfish and sea nettles. Rigidly affixed to the reef and with a branching structure, each fire coral is a colony of numerous individual hydrozoans forming a collective symbiotic organism. Read More

Dermatological and environmental toxicological impact of the sunscreen ingredient oxybenzone/benzophenone-3.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2018 Feb 31;17(1):15-19. Epub 2017 Oct 31.

Haereticus Environmental Laboratory, Clifford, VA, USA.

Oxybenzone (Benzophenone-3) is an emerging human and environmental contaminant used in sunscreens and personal care products to help minimize the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. The Center for Disease Control fourth national report on human exposure to environmental chemicals demonstrated that approximately 97% of the people tested have oxybenzone present in their urine, and independent scientists have reported various concentrations in waterways and fish worldwide. Oxybenzone can also react with chlorine, producing hazardous by-products that can concentrate in swimming pools and wastewater treatment plants. Read More

Hybrid optimal descriptors as a tool to predict skin sensitization in accordance to OECD principles.

Toxicol Lett 2017 Jun 28;275:57-66. Epub 2017 Mar 28.

IRCCS, Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri, 20156, Via La Masa 19, Milano, Italy.

Skin sensitization (allergic contact dermatitis) is a widespread problem arising from the contact of chemicals with the skin. The detection of molecular features with undesired effect for skin is complex task owing to unclear biochemical mechanisms and unclearness of conditions of action of chemicals to skin. The development of computational methods for estimation of this endpoint in order to reduce animal testing is recommended (Cosmetics Directive EC regulation 1907/2006; EU Regulation, Regulation, 1223/2009).

Agricultural Biotechnology Research Center, Academia Sinica, Taiwan.

Background: Skin is the largest organ in the body, and is directly exposed to extrinsic assaults. As such, the skin plays a central role in host defense and the cutaneous immune system is able to elicit specific local inflammatory and systemic immune responses against harmful stimuli. 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) can stimulate acute and chronic inflammation and tumor promotion in skin.

Towards a synthetic osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis.

Acta Biomater 2009 Jan 24;5(1):438-52. Epub 2008 Jul 24.

Aston Biomaterials Research Unit, School of Engineering and Applied Science, Aston University, Birmingham B4 7ET, UK.

Osteo-odonto-keratoprostheses (OOKP) is a unique form of keratoprosthesis involving surgical removal of a tooth root and surrounding bone from the patient which are then used to construct an osteo-odonto lamina into which an optical cylinder is cemented. The OOKP procedure is successful and capable of withstanding the very hostile ocular environments found in severe Stevens-Johnson syndrome, pemphigoid, chemical burns, trachoma and multiple corneal graft failure. The existing procedure is complex and time consuming in terms of operative time, and additionally involves sacrifice of the oral structures. Read More
