In vivo confocal scanning laser microscopy of human skin II: advances in instrumentation and comparison with histology.
A small, portable, and robust confocal microscope that is capable of imaging normal and abnormal skin morphology and dynamic processes in vivo, in both laboratory and clinical settings is built.
The latest on skin photoprotection.
This review summarizes current topics in the development of sunscreens, with special emphasis on substances of natural origin bearing photoscreening, antioxidant, or repairing properties, and the characterization of different parameters to evaluate the effects of sunscreen protection factor.
Sensitivity and specificity of reflectance-mode confocal microscopy for in vivo diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma: a multicenter study.
RCM offers a sensitive and specific tool for the noninvasive diagnosis of BCC in vivo and the combination of RCM with photography-based predictions of clinical probability of BCC significantly improved the accuracy.
Oral Polypodium leucotomos extract decreases ultraviolet-induced damage of human skin.
Oral administration of PL is an effective systemic chemophotoprotective agent leading to significant protection of skin against UV radiation.
Noninvasive Imaging of Human Oral Mucosa in Vivo by Confocal Reflectance Microscopy
This novel and noninvasive imaging modality can define and characterize healthy oral mucosa and thus this work serves as the foundation for studying oral diseases in vivo.
Mechanisms of Photoaging and Cutaneous Photocarcinogenesis, and Photoprotective Strategies with Phytochemicals
The photoprotective strategies to prevent/treat photoaging and photocarcinogenesis include oral or topical agents that act as sunscreens or counteract the effects of UV radiation on DNA, cellular antioxidant balance, signal transduction pathways, immunology and the ECM.
Topographic variations in normal skin, as viewed by in vivo reflectance confocal microscopy.
The results demonstrate that near infra-red reflectance confocal microscopy is a feasible tool for microscopic analysis of skin morphometry in vivo, as observed at a specific depth below the stratum corneum.
Actinic keratoses: non‐invasive diagnosis for field cancerisation
In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy has been used for evaluation of the morphological features of non‐melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) and RCM evaluation parameters for the diagnosis of AKs have been reported.
Reflectance confocal microscopy of pigmented basal cell carcinoma.
RCM may permit in vivo diagnosis of pigmented BCC and a different set or additional criteria may be necessary for detection of infiltrative and metatypical BCCs.

Near-infrared confocal microscopy may facilitate diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma with the use of in vivo high-resolution confocal features and accuracy studies to evaluate these in vivo histologic criteria are warranted.
