- Common loss-of-function variants of the epidermal barrier protein filaggrin are a major predisposing factor for atopic dermatitis. Palmer, Colin N. A.; Irvine, Alan D.; Terron-Kwiatkowski, Ana; Yiwei Zhao; Haihui Liao; Lee, Simon P.; Goudie, David R.; Sandilands, Aileen; Campbell, Linda E.; Smith, Frances J.

Atopic disease, including atopic dermatitis (eczema), allergy and asthma, has increased in frequency in recent decades and now affects âˆ¼20% of the population in the developed world. Twin and family studies have shown that predisposition to atopic disease is highly heritable. Although most...
- Chickenpox may protect against AD, asthma later. // Dermatology Times;Sep2010, Vol. 31 Issue 9, p18
The article reports on the result of a study conducted by the researchers from the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York, which indicates that children who acquired chickenpox will less likely to develop atopic dermatitis (AD) and asthma.
- Association and Linkage of Atopic Dermatitis with Chromosome 13q12â€“14 and 5q31â€“33 Markers. Beyer, Kirsten; Nickel, Renate; Freidhoff, Linda; Björkstén, Bengt; Huang, Shau-Ku; Barnes, Kathleen C.; MacDonald, Susan; Forster, Johannes; Zepp, Fred; Wahn, Volker; Beaty, Terri H.; Marsh, David G.; Wahn, Ulrich // Journal of Investigative Dermatology;Nov2000, Vol. 115 Issue 5, p906
Summary Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects 10â€“20% of the population. Linkage of atopy, asthma, allergic rhinitis, and total serum IgE levels to several different chromosomal regions have been described extensively, but little is known about the genetic...
- CE series ANSWER/EVALUATION FORM. // Dermatology Nursing;Aug2003 Supplement, p19
Presents an evaluation questionnaire on the treatment of atopic dermatitis.
- Correlation Found Between Early-onset Eczema and Asthma. Williams, Samten // Dermatology Times;Jun2000, Vol. 21 Issue 6, p22
Presents the results of a study on the link between children with atopic dermatitis and their risk of developing asthma. Effect of the sensitivity to inhalant allergens; Risk factors related to the development of asthma.
- Gene polymorphism in Netherton and common atopic disease. Walley, Andrew J.; Chavanas, Stéphane; Moffatt, Miriam F.; Esnouf, Robert M.; Ubhi, Baljinder; Lawrence, Robert; Wong, Kenny; Abecasis, Gonçalo R; Jones, E. Yvonne; Harper, John I.; Hovnanian, Alain; Cookson, William O.C.M. // Nature Genetics;Oct2001, Vol. 29 Issue 2, p175
Atopic dermatitis (AD) and asthma are characterized by IgE-mediated atopic (allergic) responses to common proteins (allergens), many of which are proteinases. Loci influencing atopy have been localized to a number of chromosomal regions, including the chromosome 5q31 cytokine cluster. Netherton...
- Sanichlor-induced atopic dermatitis and asthma in ophthalmologists. Goverdhan, S; Gaston, H // Eye;Jan2003, Vol. 17 Issue 1, p108
Discusses cases of atopic dermatitis and severe asthma following chronic exposure to Sanichlor used for the disinfection of tonometer heads. Presenting signs and symptoms; Past medical history; Diagnostic procedures done; Treatment; Outcome.
- Cytokines as a Therapeutic Target for Allergic Diseases: A Complex Picture. Woodfolk, J. A. // Current Pharmaceutical Design;Jul2006, Vol. 12 Issue 19, p2349
Production of IgE antibodies promotes the development of allergic disorders such as asthma, rhinitis and atopic eczema. Though Th2 cytokines play a pivotal role in the allergic inflammatory cascade, therapeutic strategies which target these factors have not been curative in clinical trials. In...
