Griffithsin, a potent HIV entry inhibitor, is an excellent candidate for anti‐HIV microbicide
Griffithsin (GRFT), a 12.7 kDa carbohydrate‐binding protein, both native and recombinant GRFT, potently inhibited both CXCR4‐and CCR5‐tropic HIV infection and transmission in vitro. Expand
Inhibition of T helper 2 chemokine production by narrowband ultraviolet B in cultured keratinocytes
Background  Narrowband ultraviolet B (NB‐UVB) has recently been used for the treatment of various skin disorders. Its effects on the production of cytokines and chemokines by keratinocytes areExpand
Comparison of skin barrier function and sensory nerve electric current perception threshold between IgE‐high extrinsic and IgE‐normal intrinsic types of atopic dermatitis
Background  Two types of atopic dermatitis (AD) have been proposed, with different pathophysiological mechanisms underlying this seemingly heterogeneous disorder. The extrinsic type shows high IgEExpand
Nonscarring inflammatory epidermolysis bullosa acquisita with esophageal involvement and linear IgG deposits.
This is the first report of EBA with esophageal involvement and deposition of IgG in the BMZ of the esophagus with nonscarring inflammatory feature, reported in a 24-year-old woman with autoimmune thrombocytopenia and hypothyroidism. Expand
Nestin expression in apocrine mixed tumours of the skin
The findings support the theory that AMT of the skin originates from the progenitor, multipotent stem cells in the bulge, as well as the hypothesis that sebaceoma is a benign neoplasm of sebaceous germinative Cells in the mantle. Expand
CD8+ Sézary syndrome with interleukin‐22 production modulated by bacterial sepsis
The detection of IgG and IgA autoantibodies to desmocollins 1–3 by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays using baculovirus-expressed proteins, in atypical pemphigus but not in typical pempligus, shows good consistency with previous studies. Expand
Nestin expression in stromal cells of trichoblastoma and basal cell carcinoma
A recent investigation revealed that the mesenchymal cells in the perifollicular sheath and evolving follicular papilla of embryonic hair germs and those cells in hair follicles in early anagen express nestin. Expand
Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting oedema syndrome with oedematous skin histopathologically characterized by granulomatous change
Tumour necrosis factor-a plays a significant role in the Aldara-induced skin inflammation in mice and dual inhibition of TNFR1 and IFNAR1 in imiquimod-induced psoriasiform skin inflammation is found. Expand
Mast cells in allergic responses (PP-020)
