A comparative study of colour and perfusion between two different post surgical scars. Do the laser Doppler imager and the colorimeter measure the same features of a scar?
ConclusionScars closed with higher mechanical force show higher perfusion and prolonged activity; and more redness is associated with more perfusion for both post surgical scars. Nevertheless, there was no consistent correlation found between these parameters making the laser Doppler imager and the Colorimeter still non‐replaceable instruments.

Old King Coal — molecular mechanisms underlying an ancient treatment for atopic eczema
Traditional remedies for common disorders have been known for centuries, but insight into their mechanism of action is often limited. In this issue of the JCI, Joost Schalkwijk’s research group at the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre in The Netherlands advances our understanding of why topical coal tar is an effective treatment for atopic dermatitis (AD), both rationalizing the use of this traditional medicine, and providing the scientific basis for new therapeutic approaches.

Coal tar induces AHR-dependent skin barrier repair in atopic dermatitis
Topical application of coal tar is one of the oldest therapies for atopic dermatitis (AD), a T helper 2 (Th2) lymphocyte–mediated skin disease associated with loss-of-function mutations in the skin barrier gene, filaggrin (FLG). Despite its longstanding clinical use and efficacy, the molecular mechanism of coal tar therapy is unknown. Using organotypic skin models with primary keratinocytes from AD patients and controls, we found that coal tar activated the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR), resulting in induction of epidermal differentiation. AHR knockdown by siRNA completely abrogated this effect. Coal tar restored ...

Nephronectin binds to heparan sulfate proteoglycans via its MAM domain.
Abstract Nephronectin is a basement membrane protein comprising five N-terminal epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like repeats, a central linker segment containing an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif and a C-terminal meprin-A5 protein-receptor protein tyrosine phosphatase μ (MAM) domain. Nephronectin has been shown to interact with α8β1 integrin through the central linker segment, but its interactions with other molecules remain to be elucidated. Here, we examined the binding of nephronectin to a panel of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chains. Nephronectin bound strongly to heparin and chondroitin sulfate (CS)-E and moderately to h...

Dermatan 4-O-sulfotransferase1 ablation accelerates peripheral nerve regeneration.
Abstract Chondroitin sulfate (CS) and dermatan sulfate (DS) proteoglycans are major components of the extracellular matrix implicated in neural development, plasticity and regeneration. While it is accepted that CS are major inhibitors of neural regeneration, the contributions of DS to regeneration have not been assessed. To enable a novel approach in studies on DS versus CS roles during development and regeneration, we generated a mouse deficient in the dermatan 4-O-sulfotransferase1 (Chst14(-/-)), a key enzyme in the synthesis of iduronic acid-containing modules found in DS but not CS. In wild-type mice, Chst14 i...

Immunohistochemical localization of two types of choline acetyltransferase in neurons and sensory cells of the octopus arm.
Abstract Cholinergic structures in the arm of the cephalopod Octopus vulgaris were studied by immunohistochemistry using specific antisera for two types (common and peripheral) of acetylcholine synthetic enzyme choline acetyltransferase (ChAT): antiserum raised against the rat common type ChAT (cChAT), which is cross-reactive with molluscan cChAT, and antiserum raised against the rat peripheral type ChAT (pChAT), which has been used to delineate peripheral cholinergic structures in vertebrates, but not previously in invertebrates. Western blot analysis of octopus extracts revealed a single pChAT-positive band, sugg...

[Seminar] Pemphigoid diseases
Pemphigoid diseases are a group of well defined autoimmune disorders that are characterised by autoantibodies against structural proteins of the dermal–epidermal junction and, clinically, by tense blisters and erosions on skin or mucous membranes close to the skin surface. The most common of these diseases is bullous pemphigoid, which mainly affects older people and the reported incidence of which in Europe has more than doubled in the past decade. Prognosis and treatments vary substantially between the different disorders and, since clinical criteria are usually not sufficient, direct immunofluorescence microscopy of a ...

Cutaneous noradrenaline measured by microdialysis in complex regional pain syndrome during whole-body cooling and heating.
Abstract Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is characterised by autonomic, sensory, and motor disturbances. The underlying mechanisms of the autonomic changes in CPRS are unknown. However, it has been postulated that sympathetic inhibition in the acute phase with locally reduced levels of noradrenaline is followed by an up-regulation of alpha-adrenoceptors in chronic CRPS leading to denervation supersensitivity to catecholamines. This exploratory study examined the effect of cutaneous sympathetic activation and inhibition on cutaneous noradrenaline release, vascular reactivity, and pain in CRPS patients and in h...

Pemphigus vulgaris in a Welsh pony stallion: case report and demonstration of antidesmoglein autoantibodies.
CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Pemphigus vulgaris is rarely diagnosed in equids. We describe a case that was substantiated by the demonstration of anti-Dsg3 IgG. Response to treatment was poor, with the best response to high doses of prednisolone. Equine pemphigus vulgaris is likely to carry a poor prognosis and if there is no response to treatment, humane euthanasia is warranted. PMID: 23347322 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Invited Commentary: Use of Arsenical Skin Lesions to Predict Risk of Internal Cancer--Implications for Prevention and Future Research
Arsenic exposure affects millions of people worldwide, causing substantial mortality and morbidity from cancers and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. An article in the current issue (Am J Epidemiol. 2013;177(3):202–212) reports that classic dermatological manifestations, typically associated with chronic arsenic exposure, are predictive of internal cancers among Taiwanese decades after the cessation of exposure. Specifically, the risk of lung and urothelial cancers was elevated, which was evident regardless of arsenic dose, smoking, and age. There was also an unexpected elevated risk of prostate cancer.

Adding Pancreatic Panniculitis to the Panel of Skin Lesions Associated with Triple Therapy of Chronic Hepatitis C
Dermatological side‐effects are a major concern in peginterferon (PegIFN)‐based treatments of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, with eczematous dermatitis, xerosis, generalized pruritus, and exacerbation of underlying skin disorders as prominent examples. The recent registration of the protease inhibitor telaprevir in combination with PegIFN and ribavirin (RBV) is expected to significantly increase the rate and severity of dermatological side‐effects by causing a rash in more than 50% of patients. Thus, early recognition of skin abnormalities will be crucial to assure their effective treatment, avoid premature cessa...

Impaired Notch‐MKP‐1 signalling in hidradenitis suppurativa:An approach to pathogenesis by evidence from translational biology
Abstract Recent findings in familial hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) demonstrated loss‐of‐function mutations of components of the γ‐secretase (GS) complex leading to decreased protease cleaving activity, which may compromise canonical Notch signalling. Appropriate Notch signalling is of pivotal importance for maintaining the inner and outer root sheath of the hair follicle and skin appendages. This viewpoint on the pathogenesis of HS is primarily supported by circumstantial evidence derived from translational biology. Impaired Notch signalling is proposed to be the major pathogenic mechanism of HS. Deficient Notch sig...

“9‐cis Retinoic Acid is the ALDH1A1 Product that Stimulates Melanogenesis”
In this study, a combination of RNAi and pharmacologic approaches were used to determine which ALDH1A1 substrates and products regulate melanogenesis. Initial studies revealed that neither the UV‐induced lipid aldehyde 4‐hydroxy‐2‐nonenal nor the ALDH1A1 product all‐trans retinoic acid appreciably induced melanogenesis. In contrast, both the ALDH1A1 substrate 9‐cis retinal and its corresponding product 9‐cis retinoic acid potently induced the accumulation of MITF mRNA, Tyrosinase mRNA, and melanin. ALDH1A1 depletion inhibited the ability of 9‐cis retinal but not 9‐cis retinoic acid to stimulate melanogene...

Functional melanocortin 1 receptor Mc1r is not necessary for an inflammatory response to UV radiation in adult mouse skin
Abstract The G‐protein coupled receptor, Mc1r, plays a major role in pigment production and has been reported to be important in the inflammatory response. We have investigated the effect of deficiency in Mc1r on UV inflammation. Mice on the same genetic background were used‐ C57BL/6‐c (albino), C57BL/6 (black), C57BL/6‐Mc1re/e deficient (yellow). FACS analysis of disaggregated skin showed a similar dose‐dependent increase in Ly6G+ and CD11b+ cells in response to UV radiation in all groups. No differences in UV‐induced edema or in DNA damage were detected between groups. The contact hypersensitivity response, n...

Why would a person have pink sweat (chromhidrosis)?
Pink sweat is typically due to chromhidrosis (colored sweat). What is chromhidrosis? Chromhidrosis is a rare condition characterized by the secretion of colored sweat. Approximately 10% of normal people have colored sweat (without chromhidrosis). Two glands produce sweat: - Eccrine glands secrete a clear, odorless fluid that regulates body temperature. - Apocrine glands secrete a thick, milky sweat that, once broken down by bacteria, is the main cause of body odor (smell). Which glands are responsible for chromhidrosis? - Chromhidrosis is caused mainly by the apocrine glands. They are located in the genital, axilla...
