This study highlights the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus, as a source of infection for rosacea, which can be a precursor to the disease.
Quality of life and emotional state in vitiligo in an Estonian sample: comparison with psoriasis and healthy controls.
Lower quality of life in vitiligo was associated with active stage of the disease, extension of pigment loss, depigmentation on the hands, and earlier onset of disease.
Promoter polymorphism -119C/G in MYG1 (C12orf10) gene is related to vitiligo susceptibility and Arg4Gln affects mitochondrial entrance of Myg1
This study demonstrated that both MYG1 promoter polymorphism -119C/G and Arg4Gln polymorphism in the mitochondrial signal of Myg1 have a functional impact on the regulation of the MyG1 gene and promoter polymorphic is related with suspectibility for actively progressing vitiligo.

It is found that the HT3 CACCGGAA haplotype of the IL-19 and -20 genes was associated with an increased risk of Psoriasis, reflecting its role in determining susceptibility to plaque-type psoriasis.
Polymorphisms in the ATG16L1 gene are associated with psoriasis vulgaris.
The aim of the present study was to assess whether polymorphisms in ATG16L1 gene might also contribute to the risk of psoriasis.
Gene expression analysis of melanocortin system in vitiligo.
Copy number variations in IL22 gene are associated with Psoriasis vulgaris.
Transcriptional landscape of human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) and other repetitive elements in psoriatic skin
High levels of repetitive element expression in the skin of psoriasis patients as well as healthy controls are reported and a small subset of HERVs previously described in the context of autoimmune diseases, such as members of the HERV-K and W families, are reported with the potential to affect the immunopathogenesis of psoriatic skin.
Prevalence of rosacea in an Estonian working population using a standard classification.
Rosesacea is a more common skin condition over the age of 30 years than previously thought, according to the NRSEC, and no significant gender-related differences were found.
