Histological characterization of cutaneous nerve fibers containing gastrin-releasing peptide in NC/Nga mice: an atopic dermatitis model.

Abstract

TO THE EDITOR Histological observations have shown that unmyelinated nerve fibers originating from dorsal root ganglions are present at higher densities in the epidermis in several skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis (AD), suggesting that hyperinnervation is partly responsible for abnormal itch perception (Steinhoff et al., 2003b; Ikoma et al., 2006… (More)
