Many of the histopathologic criteria used to diagnose melanoma overlap with atypical but otherwise benign naevi such as dysplastic or Spitz naevi. Galectin-3 is a member of the galectin gene family and is expressed at elevated levels in a variety of neoplastic cell types. The aim of the present study was to investigate the diagnostic value of galectin-3(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic urticaria is a persistent urticaria lasting longer than 6 weeks, affecting 20% of the general population. Various infectious agents have been reported as causes of urticaria, including Helicobacter pylori, which is a common worldwide bacterial infection. Its role in inducing allergic conditions, such as chronic urticaria, has been(More)
The Notch pathway plays a key role in differentiation, proliferation, and influencing cell fate decision in multiple organisms and tissues including the epidermis and its appendages. The role of Notch-1 in psoriasis has not been widely evaluated; therefore, the current study aimed to evaluate its role in etiopathogenesis of this common skin disease. The(More)
Allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (AFRS) is the most common form of fungal sinus disease. Its recurrence rate is high despite numerous strategies to prevent it. We conducted a study to assess the effect of systemic and topical antifungal agents-both separately and in combination-in preventing recurrence of AFRS following functional endoscopic sinus surgery(More)
Ezrin is a member of the ezrin-radixin-moesin family of proteins, which link the actin-containing cytoskeleton to the plasma membrane. Overexpression of ezrin protein is correlated with the metastatic potential in several cancers. Little is known about the distribution of ezrin in normal epidermis and nonmelanoma skin cancer; therefore, in the current(More)
OBJECTIVES There is an association between chronic inflammation and cancer, including colon cancer. Cryptosporidium parvum is a protozoan parasite that infects the gastrointestinal epithelial cells causing several parasitological and pathological changes. It is incriminated in the development of colorectal cancer in immunosuppressed individuals. Cyclin D1(More)
INTRODUCTION Obesity in adults is associated with numerous health disorders including some forms of cancer. Various epidemiological studies have found a link between excess adiposity and malignant melanoma; however, the association with non melanoma skin cancer is questionable. Leptin is a hormone produced mainly by the adipose tissue and its serum level(More)
The primary goal of HCV therapy is to achieve a sustained virological response (SVR). Many host and viral factors influence the treatment response. Cytokines play an important role in the defense against viral infections, where successful treatment of hepatitis C depends on a complex balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory responses. In the present(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the possible role of osteopontin (OPN) in chronic plaque psoriasis and understand the role of inflammation in psoriasis. STUDY DESIGN We investigated 36 patients with chronic plaque psoriasis using immunohistochemical technique for evaluation of OPN immunolocalization compared to normal skin biopsies of 10 normal subjects representing(More)
There are many theories explaining vitiligo such as genetic, autoimmune, neural, free radicals, biochemical, intrinsic defect, melanocytorrhagy, and convergent theories. Phenytoin is a widely used anticonvulsant, which is used in cutaneous medicine for treatment of ulcers and epidermolysis bullosa. The aim of this study is to assess the effectiveness of(More)
