The skin is constantly exposed to oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are generated both from endogenous neutrophils and external pro-oxidant stimuli. The present study was planned to investigate the possible involvement of free radical oxidation in psoriatic patients. Study was carried out in the Department of Dermatology and(More)
The aim of our study was to evaluate whether this polymorphism of CCR6 gene and oxidative stress are associated with psoriasis risk in Caucasian population. The association of the CCR6 polymorphism in the genetic susceptibility of psoriasis was performed at the Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Policlinico Umberto I of Rome (Italy). 516(More)
Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens (PCAS) is rare chronic, suppurative and inflammatory scalp disease. Its aetiology and pathogenesis is not completely understood. The treatment is usually difficult and often disappointing. We report a case of 25-year-old male who presented with tender, fluctuant nodules and abscesses, with draining pus and(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the possible role of nitrogen reactive species in pathogenesis of psoriasis. A total of 187 individuals were included in this study, out of these 84 were patients suffering from psoriasis and 103 were healthy subjects, served as a control. Patients with psoriasis were graded according to the Psoriasis Area Severity(More)
Rosacea is a chronic skin disease of unknown etiology, affecting the central areas of the face skin (cheeks, chin, nose, forehead) and is characterized by periods of remission and exacerbation. Currently, about 10% of the world's population suffered from rosacea. Significant role in the pathogenesis of Rosacea, most researchers reffered to vascular(More)
Nisoral and tinidasole effects on Trichophyton rubrum and Candida albicans ability to be destroyed by neutrophils were under study, as were the characteristics of neutrophil phagocytic activity in patients with various forms of trichophytosis and candidiasis over the course of nisoral or tinidasole therapy or combined therapy with both the drugs. Tinidasole(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the association between capillary fragility and some hemostatic parameters, lipid profile in patients with rosacea. 50 patients (30 women and 20 men) aged 35 to 65 years were under observation. Control group consisted of 50 healthy persons, adequate to comparison group by sex and age. To determine the resistance of(More)
Dissemination of mycocenosis induced by C. albicans and herpes simplex (type 2) virus and the role of this condition in the development of inflammatory diseases of the genitals were under study. Development of urogenital candidiasis in the presence of recurrent vesicular lichen simplex (RVLS) enhanced the intensity of RVLS recurrences and made them more(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the content of some proinflammatory cytokines (IL-2, IL-6) in the serum of patients with vitiligo and stress in anamnesis. Cytokine levels in serum were measured in 50 patients with vitiligo (20 men and 30 women aged from 18 to 65 years old.) All the patients were divided according to anamnesis (27 patients with(More)
Despite of numerous investigations, carried out practically in all countries of the world for the study of vitiligo and the search for its new effective therapies, pathogenic mechanisms of vitiligo are still poorly understood, and the proposed treatments are not perfect. One of the most accepted theories of the pathogenesis of vitiligo is an oxidative(More)
