IL-31 Serum Protein and Tissue mRNA Levels in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis
Background Severe pruritus is the primary symptom in atopic dermatitis (AD). Recently, the novel cytokine IL-31 has been implicated in the itching associated with AD. Objective We performed thisExpand

Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Acute and Chronic Skin Lesions of Patients with Atopic Dermatitis
Background Staphylococcus aureus (SA) has peculiar abilities to colonize the skin in atopic dermatitis (AD) patients. Objective We sought to determine the colonization rates of SA in acute andExpand

Mutational profiling of acral melanomas in Korean populations
The proportion of acral melanoma (AM) is much higher in Asian populations than in Caucasian populations. Although mutational profiles associated with AM have been discovered in Caucasian populations,Expand

Expression of the homeobox gene, HOPX, is modulated by cell differentiation in human keratinocytes and is involved in the expression of differentiation markers.
Homeodomain only protein X (HOPX), an unusual homeodomain protein, was originally identified as a key regulator of cardiac development. We first demonstrated that the expression of HOPX was dependentExpand

Antibiotic Susceptibility of Staphylococcus aureus in Atopic Dermatitis: Current Prevalence of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Korea and Treatment Strategies
Background Staphylococcus aureus is a well-known microbe that colonizes or infects the skin in atopic dermatitis (AD). The prevalence of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) in AD has recently beenExpand
