The Beneficial Augmentative Effect of Micronised Purified Flavonoid Fraction (MPFF) on the Healing of Leg Ulcers: An Open, Multicentre, Controlled, Randomised Study
Objective: To determine the increase in healing rate of venous ulcer in patients receiving a micronised purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF) as supplementation to standard local care. Design: AExpand
Activity of serum lipase [EC] and the diversity of serum lipid profile in psoriasis.
BACKGROUND In the course of psoriasis the loss of scales from the skin surface is observed. This may be related to lipid disorders in epidermis and in blood serum. The aim of the study was to findExpand
The peripheral blood lymphocyte pattern in psoriasis preceded by an infection.
BACKGROUND There is a great deal of information to suggest that activated T cells play a major role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Less is known about the possible influence of a trigger bacterialExpand
Life‐threatening laryngeal involvement in systemic lupus erythematosus
A 46‐year‐old woman was admitted in 1998 for the evaluation of muscular pain, erythematous to violaceous, slightly atrophic patches on the dorsal interphalangeal joints, suggestive of Gottron's sign,Expand
Interleukin-18 levels in the plasma of psoriatic patients correlate with the extent of skin lesions and the PASI score.
Interleukin-18 is a cytokine with a possible role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. We examined subpopulations of peripheral blood lymphocytes and their expression of activation markers andExpand
Treatment of oesophageal lichen planus with small doses of prednisone
To the Editor: Mucosal involvement in lichen planus (LP) has been observed in about 30-70% of the cases [1,2], affecting in most cases the buccal and gingival mucosa, tongue, lips and genitalia.Expand
Generalized lichenoid drug eruption following Blaschko lines
A 16‐year‐old girl was referred for evaluation of a widespread rash of 1 month duration. Its onset was on the trunk, but it rapidly generalized to cover virtually the entire body. It was intenselyExpand
Unilateral Multiple Linear Lichen planus following the Blaschko Lines Recurring after Deliveries
Several clinical variants of lichen planus have been reported, but lichen planus following the Blaschko lines is extremely rare. We present a case of lichen planus with linear distribution followingExpand
Interleukin-18 serum concentration in patients with psoriasis triggered by infection.
The blood serum concentrations of IL-18 and the subpopulation of blood lymphocytes in peripheral blood were investigated in 14 patients with psoriasis preceded by a bacterial infection. The IL-18Expand
