Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most prevalent invasive malignancy with metastatic potential. The epidermis is exposed to a variety of environmental DNA-damaging chemicals, principal among which are polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) ubiquitous in the environment, tobacco smoke, and broiled meats. Langerhans cells (LCs) comprise a network of(More)
BACKGROUND Computer-assisted diagnosis of dermoscopic images of skin lesions has the potential to improve melanoma early detection. OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the performance of a novel classifier that uses decision forest classification of dermoscopic images to generate a lesion severity score. METHODS Severity scores were calculated for 173(More)
Despite extensive investigation of the signals required for development of T helper type 1 (Th1) and type 2 (Th2) immune responses, the mechanisms involved are still not well-defined. A critical role for Epstein-Barr virus-induced gene 3 (EBI3) in these responses has been proposed. EBI3, initially discovered as a transcriptionally activated gene in(More)
The skin is at the forefront of environmental exposures, such as ultraviolet radiation and a myriad of chemicals, and is at risk for malignant transformation. The skin is a highly responsive immunological organ that contains a unique population of immature intraepidermal dendritic cells (DCs) called Langerhans cells (LCs). Although LCs show morphological(More)
UVB light is considered the major environmental inducer of human keratinocyte (KC) DNA mutations, including within the tumor-suppressor gene p53, and chronic exposure is associated with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma formation. Langerhans cells (LCs) comprise a dendritic network within the suprabasilar epidermis, yet the role of LCs in UVB-induced(More)
Yale University medical and PA students, classes of 2010 and 2008 respectively, express their gratitude in a compilation of reflections on learning human anatomy. In coordination with the Section of Anatomy and Experimental Surgery at the School of Medicine, the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine encourages you to hear the stories of the body as narrated(More)
