IL-31: a new link between T cells and pruritus in atopic skin inflammation.
BACKGROUND IL-31 is a novel T-cell-derived cytokine that induces severe pruritus and dermatitis in transgenic mice, and signals through a heterodimeric receptor composed of IL-31 receptor A andExpand

Plasmacytoid dendritic cells sense skin injury and promote wound healing through type I interferons
Cutaneous injury in mice drives transient TLR7- and TLR9-mediated production of type I interferon by plasmacytoid dendritic cells, which is required for re-epithelialization of the skin.

CCL1-CCR8 Interactions: An Axis Mediating the Recruitment of T Cells and Langerhans-Type Dendritic Cells to Sites of Atopic Skin Inflammation1
Atopic dermatitis represents a chronically relapsing skin disease with a steadily increasing prevalence of 10–20% in children. Skin-infiltrating T cells, dendritic cells (DC), and mast cells areExpand

CC Chemokine Ligand 18, An Atopic Dermatitis-Associated and Dendritic Cell-Derived Chemokine, Is Regulated by Staphylococcal Products and Allergen Exposure1
Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with a steadily increasing prevalence. Exposure to allergens or bacterial superantigens triggers T and dendritic cell (DC) recruitment andExpand

Tacrolimus ointment does not affect collagen synthesis: results of a single-center randomized trial.
We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to assess the atrophogenicity of tacrolimus ointment. In a combined group of atopic dermatitis patients (n = 14) and healthyExpand

A multicenter study of patch test reactions with dental screening series.
BACKGROUND Dental products contain many allergens, and may cause problems both for patients undergoing dental treatment and for dental personnel because of occupational exposure. Individual patchExpand

Topical Superantigen Exposure Induces Epidermal Accumulation of CD8+ T Cells, a Mixed Th1/Th2-Type Dermatitis and Vigorous Production of IgE Antibodies in the Murine Model of Atopic Dermatitis1
Patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) have repeated cutaneous exposure to both environmental allergens and superantigen-producing strains of Staphylococcus aureus. We used a murine model of AD toExpand

The chemokine receptor CCR3 participates in tissue remodeling during atopic skin inflammation.
BACKGROUND Recent studies provided insights into the recruitment and activation pathways of leukocytes in atopic dermatitis, however, the underlying mechanisms of tissue remodeling in atopic skinExpand

Absorption of topical tacrolimus (FK506) in vitro through human skin: comparison with cyclosporin A.
Cyclosporin A (CsA) is efficacious in many dermatoses as an oral but not as a topical form, while tacrolimus (FK506) has been shown to be effective in both forms. As inadequate skin absorption hasExpand

Repeated epicutaneous exposures to ovalbumin progressively induce atopic dermatitis‐like skin lesions in mice
Background Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic skin disease in which environmental factors play a great role. A widely used murine model for AD has provided a useful tool to study the disease.
