Acne vulgaris is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease of multifactorial origin. The aim of this study was to clarify whether known polymorphisms of the interleukin-1A (IL1A) and IL1RN genes play a role in the pathogenesis of acne vulgaris. A positive association was found between the minor T allele of the IL1A +4845(G>T) single nucleotide polymorphism(More)
Topical immunosuppressant therapy is widely used in the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. Besides its beneficial therapeutic effects, application of topical anti-inflammatory drugs may render the epidermis more vulnerable to invading pathogens by suppressing innate immune responses in keratinocytes, such as(More)
PURPOSE Comparison between the results of measurements made using different types of automated-perimetry equipment is difficult, because of the lack of standardisation. The purpose of the study was to compare the two main indexes, mean deviation or mean defect (MD) and pattern standard deviation (PSD), as measured by two widely used instruments (Interzeag(More)
BACKGROUND N-palmitoylethanolamine (PEA) and organic osmolytes are endogenous components of the human epidermis and are generated from phospholipids in the stratum granulosum. PEA has been shown to exert potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. The endogenous organic osmolytes such as betaine and sarcosine control skin humidity, but have also(More)
