Comparison of Nested PCR and RFLP for Identification and Classification of Malassezia Yeasts from Healthy Human Skin.
RFLP method was relatively more accurate and reliable for the detection of various Malassezia species compared to the nested PCR, but, in the aspect of simplicity and time saving, the latter method has its own advantages.
Distribution of malassezia species on the scalp in korean seborrheic dermatitis patients.
M. restricta is considered to be the most important Malassezia species in Korean seborrheic dermatitis patients, and M. globosa in the normal controls.
The Investigation on the Distribution of Malassezia Yeasts on the Normal Korean Skin by 26S rDNA PCR-RFLP.
The key is to recognize the existence of a difference in the type of Malassezia species in different ages as well as body areas, which reflects differing skin lipid levels in various ages and different body areas.
Analysis of the nasal vestibule mycobiome in patients with allergic rhinitis
The phylogenetic composition of the nasal vestibule mycobiome of patients with AR was analysed by culture‐independent pyrosequencing methods and compared with healthy individuals and some of the AR samples displayed significantly higher diversities than healthy controls at both the genus and species level.
Consensus Guidelines for the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis in Korea (Part II): Systemic Treatment
Background Since the treatment guidelines for atopic dermatitis (AD) were issued by the Korean Atopic Dermatitis Association (KADA) work group in 2006, there have been further advances in the
Consensus Guidelines for the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis in Korea (Part I): General Management and Topical Treatment
Up-to-date evidence- and experience-based treatment guidelines for AD regarding general management and topical treatment are provided.
Epidemiologic Study of Malassezia Yeasts in Patients with Malassezia Folliculitis by 26S rDNA PCR-RFLP Analysis.
BACKGROUND So far, studies on the inter-relationship between Malassezia and Malassezia folliculitis have been rather scarce. OBJECTIVE We sought to analyze the differences in body sites, gender and
Assessment of Skin Physiology Change and Safety After Intradermal Injections With Botulinum Toxin: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Split-Face Pilot Study in Rosacea Patients With
Intradermal BTX injections significantly reduced the erythema on both cheeks and improved skin elasticity and hydration, but not TEWL and sebum secretion.
The relation between the amount of sunscreen applied and the sun protection factor in Asian skin.
It is concluded that to get the expected SPF value, it is important to apply the UV protective sunscreen precisely in the amount of 2.0 mg/cm(2) on Asian skin as recommended by the Food and Drug Administration.
Clinical and Histopathological Investigation of Seborrheic Keratosis
The most frequent histopathological subtype was the acanthotic type, followed by mixed, hyperkeratotic, melanoacanthoma, clonal, irritated, and adenoid types; an unexpectedly high percentage (9.2%) of the melanoicanthoma variant was observed.
