Our aim was to assess whether the presence of highly active effector T cells in atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with changes in the number and/or function of regulatory T cells (Tregs). Flow cytometry was utilised to determine the percentage of CD4+ CD25bright CD127-/low FOXP3+ and skin-homing CLA+ CD4+ CD25bright FOXP3+ Tregs in healthy controls and(More)
Hyper-IgE syndrome (HIES) is a severe primary immunodeficiency, characterized by increased serum IgE levels as well as recurrent infections and atopic dermatitis (AD)-like skin lesions. AD is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with immunologic alterations (Th2-Th22 polarization) and characteristic skin barrier dysfunctions. Our aim was to investigate(More)
BACKGROUND Filaggrin (FLG) deficiency is a well-known predisposing factor for the development of atopic dermatitis (AD). Decreased FLG expression can be the result of haploinsufficiency or severe inflammation, which can cause acquired FLG alterations. FLG mutations are related to several clinical and laboratory parameters of AD; however, some recent data(More)
Because it is not known exactly when or where myeloid dendritic cells (mDCs) acquire their atopic dermatitis (AD)-specific T-cell-polarising ability in patients with this condition, we used laser scanning cytometry (LSC) to determine whether isolated peripheral blood mDCs from AD patients differed from cells from controls in their cytokine expression(More)
Inflammatory cytokines can impair the skin barrier, but the question as to whether barrier alterations affect keratinocyte immune responses remains unanswered. The aim of this study was to investigate whether immune-mediated skin inflammation differs between severe atopic dermatitis patients with or without filaggrin mutation. The levels of filaggrin,(More)
The microbial community exhibits remarkable diversity on topographically distinct skin regions, which may be accompanied by differences in skin immune characteristics. Our aim was to compare the immune milieu of healthy sebaceous gland-rich (SGR) and sebaceous gland-poor skin areas, and to analyze its changes in an inflammatory disease of SGR skin. For this(More)
