Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis (EHK) is a rare dominantly inherited skin disorder with erythroderma and hyperkeratosis. Mutations have been found in keratin 1 (K1) or keratin 10 (K10) gene. In the present study, we reported three sporadic and one familial Chinese EHK patients with their mutation findings. All the mutations turned out to be single heterozygous(More)
The number of downloads can be considered as representing usage as well as social impact of scientific journals. In this context the download h (2) index – an adaptation of Kosmulski's h (2) index-is suggested as a new indicator. The download h (2) index of six thousand Chinese academic journals has been determined. We compare the download h (2) with other(More)
Pemphigus and bullous pemphigoid (BP) are severe autoimmune skin diseases. Whether innate immunity could be a trigger or a part of the pathogeneses is unknown. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are important components of the innate immune system, with no previous evaluation of TLRs in autoimmune bullous diseases. This work aims to investigate TLRs 2, 4, and 9(More)
OBJECTIVE Genetic factors are thought to be involved in the development of vitiligo. The aim of this study is to explore the possible genetic model of vitiligo by analyzing the genetic characteristics of 815 patients from Zhejiang province. METHODS Data for 815 patients with vitiligo together with their first- and second-degree relatives were obtained(More)
