Predictive model for immunotherapy of alopecia areata with diphencyprone.
TLDR
Responsibility to diphencyprone treatment in AA is affected by baseline extent of AA and age at disease onset, which means a prolonged treatment course might be necessary. Expand
Rapid near-infrared Raman spectroscopy system for real-time in vivo skin measurements.
TLDR
Good quality in vivo cutaneous NIR Raman spectra free of interference from fiber fluorescence and silica Raman scattering can be acquired in less than 1 s, which greatly facilitates practical noninvasive tissue characterization and clinical diagnosis. Expand
Practical management of hair loss.
TLDR
An organized diagnostic approach for both nonscarring and scarring alopecias is described to help family physicians establish an accurate in-office diagnosis of hair loss. Expand
A global survey of the role of ultraviolet radiation and hormonal influences in the development of melasma
TLDR
The Pigmentary Disorders Academy designed and conducted a global survey of women to investigate the effect of these factors on onset and chronicity of melasma and the course of the disease, with a particular focus on hormonal factors and UV exposure in females. Expand
Restoration of hair growth in mice with an alopecia areata‐like disease using topical anthralin
TLDR
It appears that anthralin may be an effective therapy for C3H/HeJ mice with AA and certain cytokines may be involved in the therapeutic effects of Anthralin on restoring hair regrowth in AA‐affected C3h/ heJ mice. Expand
The treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis with a new anti-CD11a monoclonal antibody.
TLDR
Anti-CD11a antibody administered intravenously in 8 weekly doses of 0.3 mg/kg was well tolerated and induced clinical and histologic improvements in psoriasis. Expand
Topical photodynamic therapy with 5‐aminolaevulinic acid does not induce hair regrowth in patients with extensive alopecia areata
TLDR
This work has shown that 5‐Aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) is a photosensitizer precursor that is transformed by cells into protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), which can in turn be activated by red light. Expand
The Dynamics of Laser‐Induced Changes in Human Skin Autofluorescence—Experimental Measurements and Theoretical Modeling
TLDR
The measured aut ofluorescence photobleaching dynamics can be used to determine the fractional contributions of different skin layers to the total autofluorescence signal measured in vivo, and a biophysical explanation for the double‐exponential photOBleaching function was elucidated. Expand
Systemic cyclosporine and low-dose prednisone in the treatment of chronic severe alopecia areata: a clinical and immunopathologic evaluation.
TLDR
Erythema multiforme with mucous membrane involvement and StevensJohnson syndrome are clinically different disorders with distinct causes, and topical mechlorethamine chemotherapy: considerations on its use in mycosis fungoides is considered. Expand
Psoriatic plaques exhibit red autofluorescence that is due to protoporphyrin IX.
TLDR
It is concluded that native psoriatic plaques can exhibit red autofluorescence that is due to elevated levels of protoporphyrin IX within scales. Expand
