European Society of Contact Dermatitis guideline for diagnostic patch testing – recommendations on best practice
The present guideline summarizes all aspects of patch testing for the diagnosis of contact allergy in patients suspected of suffering, or having been suffering, from allergic contact dermatitis or
The epidemiology of contact allergy in the general population – prevalence and main findings
TLDR
A median prevalence of nickel allergy was determined and demonstrates that nickel was an important cause of contact allergy in the general population and that it was widespread in both men and women.
The epidemiology of hand eczema in the general population – prevalence and main findings *
TLDR
The epidemiology of hand eczema in the general population is reviewed for the first time to help healthcare decision makers when they allocate resources.
Efficacy and Safety of Abrocitinib in Patients With Moderate-to-Severe Atopic Dermatitis: A Randomized Clinical Trial.
TLDR
Abrocitinib, an oral, once-daily Janus kinase 1 selective inhibitor, was effective and well tolerated in a phase 3 monotherapy trial of patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) and laboratory values indicating thrombocytopenia.
Hypersensitivity reactions to metallic implants – diagnostic algorithm and suggested patch test series for clinical use
TLDR
This review summarizes the evidence regarding evaluation tools, especially patch and lymphocyte transformation tests, for hypersensitivity reactions to implanted metal devices to provide a comprehensive reference for use by those evaluating suspected cutaneous and systemic metal hypers sensitivity reactions.
Cutaneous and Systemic Hypersensitivity Reactions to Metallic Implants
TLDR
The association between metal sensitivity and cutaneous allergic reactions remains to be fully understood, and the current knowledge in this field should be valuable to health care providers who manage patients with conditions related to this field.
Multi-ethnic genome-wide association study of 21,000 cases and 95,000 controls identifies new risk loci for atopic dermatitis
TLDR
Ten new risk loci are identified for atopic dermatitis, bringing the total number of known atopic skin disease susceptibility loci to 31 (with new secondary signals at four of these loci), underscoring the important contribution of (auto)immune mechanisms to atopy dermatitis pathogenesis.
Nickel allergy and allergic contact dermatitis: A clinical review of immunology, epidemiology, exposure, and treatment
TLDR
This clinical review provides an updated overview of the epidemiology, exposure sources, methods for exposure quantification, skin deposition and penetration, immunology, diagnosis, thresholds for sensitization and elicitation, clinical pictures, prevention, and treatment of nickel allergy.
