Expression of IL-10, TGF-beta(1) and TNF-alpha in Cultured Keratinocytes (HaCaT Cells) after IPL Treatment or ALA-IPL Photodynamic Treatment.
TLDR
The induction of IL-10 may contribute to the anti-inflammatory effect, which explains the therapeutic benefit of PDT for inflammatory dermatoses, and that of TGF-beta(1) may be related to the therapeutic effect for psoriasis. Expand
Generalized Lichen Nitidus Successfully Treated with Narrow-band UVB Phototherapy : Two Cases Report
TLDR
NB-UVB phototherapy may be an effective alternative therapy for the treatment of generalized LN, even for patients in their childhood, where both cases improved with narrow-band ultraviolet B (NB- UVB) phototherapy plus topical steroid ointment. Expand
The Expressions of TGF-β(1) and IL-10 in Cultured Fibroblasts after ALA-IPL Photodynamic Treatment.
TLDR
The reduction of TGF-β(1) was prominent after PDT and so an antisclerotic effect can be expected after PDT, which explains the therapeutic benefit of PDT for inflammatory dermatoses. Expand
The expression of RAGE and EN‐RAGE in leprosy
TLDR
The ligation of EN‐RAGE with RAGE triggers cellular activation with the generation of the key proinflammatory mediators interleukin (IL)‐1β and tumour necrosis factor (TNF)‐α. Expand
Sphingosine 1-Phosphate Triggers Apoptotic Signal for B16 Melanoma Cells via ERK and Caspase Activation
TLDR
Results suggest that S1P induced apoptosis of B16 melanoma cells via an Edg receptor-independent, pertussis toxin-insensitive pathway, and appears to be associated with the ERK and caspase-3 activation. Expand
Localized Sweet's Syndrome in an Irradiated Field.
TLDR
A case of a 56-year-old female diagnosed with cervical cancer, who underwent surgery and concurrent chemoradiation therapy, presented with erythematous plaques, principally within the radiation field; the skin biopsy showed features consistent with Sweet's syndrome. Expand
Cutaneous metastatic adenocarcinoma of stomach--nodular and inflammatory carcinoma.
TLDR
Histopathologic examination of the stomach, along with the gastroscope, established that the cutaneous metastasis was of stomach origin and revealed groups of metastatic adenocarcinoma cells in the dermis, subcutaneous tissue, and lumina of the lymphatic vessels. Expand
A Case of Sjögren's Syndrome That Presented with Alcohol-induced Purpura.
TLDR
A case of 34-year-old woman who presented with purple non-blanching palpable purpura on both lower legs, and these lesions had developed soon after drinking alcohol 2 days previously, indicating that drinking alcohol had played a role as a possible aggravating factor for the cutaneous purpURA of this patient with SS. Expand
A Case of Dermatitis Neglecta.
TLDR
A 29-year-old man who presented with an asymptomatic hyperkeratotic scaly plaque on umbilicus could be the first report to provide the histologic characteristics of dermatitis neglecta with histologic confirmation. Expand
