Revised classification/nomenclature of vitiligo and related issues: the Vitiligo Global Issues Consensus Conference
During the 2011 International Pigment Cell Conference (IPCC), the Vitiligo European Taskforce (VETF) convened a consensus conference on issues of global importance for vitiligo clinical research, agreeing that disease stability be best assessed based on the stability of individual lesions rather than the overall stability of the disease as the latter is difficult to define precisely and reliably.
Neuroprotective effect of vitamin E supplementation in patients treated with cisplatin chemotherapy.
Lipids of the sperm plasma membrane: from polyunsaturated fatty acids considered as markers of sperm function to possible scavenger therapy.
A specific composition of phospholipids and a significant concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been shown to be present in sperm membranes and Seminal plasma has a highly specialized scavenger system that defends the sperm membrane against lipoperoxidation.
New developments in our understanding of acne pathogenesis and treatment
A summarized update of the current knowledge of the pathobiology of acne vulgaris and new treatment concepts that have emerged in the last 3 years is provided.
Antioxidant activity, lipid peroxidation and skin diseases. What's new
The review summarises the possible correlations between antioxidant imbalance, lipid oxidative breakage and skin diseases, from both a pathological and therapeutic points of view.
Chemical and instrumental approaches to treat hyperpigmentation.
This review describes the different approaches to obtain depigmentation, suggests a classification of whitening molecules on the basis of the mechanism by which they interfere with melanogenesis, and confirms the necessity to apply standardized protocols to evaluate depigmenting treatments.

Hypopigmenting agents: an updated review on biological, chemical and clinical aspects.
An overview of agents causing hypopigmentation in human skin is presented and it is suggested that Mammalian skin or at least keratinocytes/melanocytes co-cultures should be preferred rather than pure melanocyte cultures or soluble tyrosinase.
The definition and assessment of vitiligo: a consensus report of the Vitiligo European Task Force.
A workshop which validated the clinical use of the assessment form performed at several European University clinics, and showed an overall good concordance among panelists using the proposed scoring system, which can be easily handled in clinical practice.
