Background: Atopic eczema (AE) is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder with an increasing prevalence in industrialized countries. Methods: Genox Research Incorporation was founded in 1996 to identify new genes involved in allergic diseases in collaboration with the National Children’s Hospital in Tokyo. In the AE project, they have discovered several hundred new genes and partial DNA sequences by mainly using microarrays. Here, I review the results obtained using transcriptome analysis… Expand
Mechanisms of IFN-γ-induced apoptosis of human skin keratinocytes in patients with atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
The results demonstrate increased IFN-γ responses in skin of patients with AD and suggest involvement of multiple new apoptosis- and inflammation-related factors in the development of AD. Expand
Tralokinumab in atopic dermatitis
TLDR
Treatment with tralokinumab was found to be well-tolerated with an overall frequency and severity of adverse events comparable to placebo, and increased understanding of the immunological processes involved highlight a key role for interleukin-13 (IL-13). Expand
A Comprehensive Review of the Treatment of Atopic Eczema
TLDR
Among various measures of AE managment, cutaneous hydration, which improves barrier function and relieve itchiness, may be helpful to reduce the need for topical steroid use and therefore should be used as a basic treatment. Expand
Study of Aerobic Agents that Causes Secondary Infection Associated with Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema) in an Affected Patients Admitted to Ramadi Teaching Hospital and Private Clinics in Ramadi City-Western of Iraq
TLDR
Gram-positive bacteria including Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphyllococcus aureus appeared to be the most bacterial agent that caused secondary bacterial infection with Eczema. Expand
Atopic and non‐atopic allergic disorders: current insights into the possible involvement of free immunoglobulin light chains
TLDR
The role of IgE‐ and non‐IgE‐mediated mechanisms in allergic disorders are discussed and a possible role of free IG light chains in the pathogenesis of the non‐atopic types of these allergies is pointed out. Expand
Hypersensitivity to aeroallergens in children with atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
The presence of hypersensitivity to aeroallergens in children with AD is significant and by discovering and removing the aero allergens responsible, it is possible to achieve reduction in the intensity of skin lesions and frequency of exacerbations. Expand
Atopic Dermatitis and Chinese Medicine
TLDR
This chapter reviews the findings of clinical and laboratory studies of 4 CHM formulae: Zemaphyte, Pentaherbs Capsule, Hochu-ekki-to, and Xiao Feng San, finding potential pharmacological effects that may be beneficial in the management of AD. Expand
Microarrays: Molecular allergology and nanotechnology for personalised medicine (II).

  • Allergologia et immunopathologia
  • 2010
TLDR
The present article reviews the application of allergenic component microarrays to allergology for diagnosis, management in the form of specific immunotherapy, and epidemiological studies and the challenges faced in introducing such techniques to clinical practice. Expand
Optimizing outcomes for paediatric atopic dermatitis
TLDR
More work is required to identify which clinical signs, symptoms, long‐term control of flares, and quality of life measures are the best outcome domains for AD clinical trials in order to continue to improve control of AD in children. Expand
METEORIN-LIKE is a cytokine associated with barrier tissues and alternatively activated macrophages.
TLDR
Analysis of bioinformatics analyses of a comprehensive database of gene expression indicates that MetrNL represents a novel cytokine, which is likely involved in both innate and acquired immune responses. Expand

Identification of Highly Expressed Genes in Peripheral Blood T Cells from Patients with Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
The upregulated genes identified in this work may serve as useful markers for moderate to severe AD as opposed to normal or mild AD and also as markers indicating progression to more severe AD. Expand
Mouse Models of Atopic Eczema Critically Evaluated
TLDR
The currently available mouse models of AE are reviewed in light of the novel World Allergy Organization classification of eczematous skin diseases and evaluated according to their clinical, histopathological and immunological findings. Expand
Analysis of Highly Expressed Genes in Monocytes from Atopic Dermatitis Patients
TLDR
The upregulation of genes suggests that circulating monocytes in AD patients may be primed to differentiate into effector cells by conditions associated with AD, and may prove to be a useful marker for AD. Expand
The genetics of atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
A common theme of generalized epidermal dysfunction manifesting as a compromised skin barrier and failure to protect against, or aberrant responses to, microbial insults and antigens is suggested. Expand
T Cell Phenotype in Allergic Asthma and Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Gen expression of allergy-characteristic, IL-4-rich T cell cDNAs is investigated to monitor expression of genes that might participate in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases and reveals and confirms genes relevant for allergy and highlights an approach to applying a DNA array technique for diagnostic discrimination of allergic disease. Expand
High-Density Oligonucleotide Array Analysis of mRNA Transcripts in Peripheral Blood Cells of Severe Atopic Dermatitis Patients
TLDR
These 4 transcripts in PBMC are expected to be useful markers for evaluating AD, namely IFN-γ, TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand), ISGF-3 (STAT1) and defensin-1, which have previously been implicated in AD pathology. Expand
Distinct patterns of gene expression in the skin lesions of atopic dermatitis and psoriasis: a gene microarray analysis.
TLDR
A very distinctive gene expression pattern in AD as compared with psoriasis that may explain several features of AD and Psoriasis including the specific inflammatory cell infiltrates observed in these disorders. Expand
Cloning and characterization of the highly expressed ETEA gene from blood cells of atopic dermatitis patients.
TLDR
The enhanced expression of ETEA may play a role in the regulating the resistance to apoptosis that is observed in T cells and eosinophils of AD patients. Expand
Cytokine Milieu of Atopic Dermatitis, as Compared to Psoriasis, Skin Prevents Induction of Innate Immune Response Genes 1
TLDR
Skin biopsies from AD and psoriasis patients were analyzed and decreased expression of a constellation of antimicrobial genes occurs as the result of local up-regulation of Th2 cytokines and the lack of elevated amounts of TNF-α and IFN-γ under inflammatory conditions in AD skin. Expand
Impaired Interferon-γ Production in a Subset Population of Severe Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Results suggest that the decreased INF-γ production may account for the abnormal immunopathogenesis of severe, intractable AD. Expand
