Contact dermatitis

Contact dermatitis results from the exposure to exogenous allergens or irritants that stimulate immune responses leading to inflammation of the skin, which can negatively affect the quality of life of patients.

Preservative Contact Hypersensitivity among Adult Atopic Dermatitis Patients

The role of PCHS should be highlighted in the topical therapy and in the prevention of possible AD exacerbations, as preservatives are important contact allergens in adult AD, mostly among young women.

Innate Immune Mechanisms in Contact Dermatitis.

It is now recognized that the innate immune system in concert with tissue stress and damage responses orchestrates inflammation, which should enable the development of novel mechanism-based anti-inflammatory treatment strategies as well as of animal-free in vitro assays for the identification and potency classification of contact allergens.

Allergic rhinitis, allergic contact dermatitis and disease comorbidity belong to separate entities with distinct composition of T-cell subsets, cytokines, immunoglobulins and autoantibodies

The respective characteristics of immune responses in AR, ACD, and AR combined with ACD were illuminated and it was discovered that the PAR and SAR patients possessed different cytokine profiles and T-cell compartments, suggesting that these allergic conditions belong to different disease entities.

Patch Testing and Immunosuppression: a Comprehensive Review

There is a need for high-quality studies investigating the impact of immunosuppression on PT in order to standardize practice and allow clinicians and patients to make the best-informed decisions possible.

Systemic Contact Dermatitis

The p-I concept (pharmacologic interaction with immunoreceptors) hypothesized that drugs are able to bind directly to a T cell receptor without first being presented by MHC (major histocompatibility complex) molecules and without prior metabolism, which would help explain why SCD can be seen on first exposure to medications.

Common Contact Allergens Associated with Eyelid Dermatitis: Data from the North American Contact Dermatitis Group 2003‐2004 Study Period

The top 26 allergens identified in this study represent a potential eyelid dermatitis screening series and represent the contact allergens most frequently found to be both patch test positive and relevant when only the eyelids are involved.

Occupational and Hand Dermatitis: a Practical Approach

The differential diagnosis for occupational dermatitis is broad and should be considered when evaluating an employee with suspected OCD, and some other diagnoses to consider include atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and manifestations of internal disease, as well as an overlap syndrome of more than one diagnosis.

Facial dermatitis is the prototypical presentation of cosmetic contact dermatitis, and should trigger consideration of airborne contactants, facial cleansers, makeup foundation, and moisturizers and medications that are being applied confluently.

Occupational irritant contact dermatitis diagnosed by analysis of contact irritants and allergens in the work environment

Studies are lacking on the usefulness of material safety data sheets (MSDSs) in making the diagnosis of ICD.

American contact dermatitis society core allergen series.

This review suggests a core group of allergens similar to the TRUE Test with subsequent trays providing a greater breadth of coverage in a logical fashion, with more likely allergens being higher in the tray.
