Recently we demonstrated that a high percentage of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients displayed specific immunoglobulin E reactivity to human proteins. Here we show that IgE autoreactivity is found predominantly in AD patients with severe skin manifestations and reveal the molecular nature of four IgE autoantigens. An expression cDNA library constructed from a(More)
BACKGROUND In atopic eczema (AE), skin colonization with Staphylococcus aureus is known to play a major triggering and possibly pathophysiological role. METHODS In this open-labeled controlled side-to-side comparative trial, affected sites (flexures of both elbows) in 15 patients diagnosed as having generalized or localized AE were evaluated regarding S.(More)
Cutaneous human papillomavirus (HPV)-induced warts are common in the general population, especially among children. Prevalence rates among primary schoolchildren are between 22% and 33% (1). In childhood, in particular, the spontaneous resolution rate of HPV-induced warts is high. Half of primary schoolchildren will be free of warts within one year (2) and(More)
