    Abstract : Hereditary ichthyosis is a collective name for many dry and scaly skin disorders ranging in frequency from common to very rare. The main groups are autosomal recessive lamellar ichthyosis, autosomal dominant epidermolytic hyperkeratosis and ichthyosis vulgaris, and x-linked recessive ichthyosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Skin Barrier Function and mRNA Expression Profiles in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis, Ichthyosis Vulgaris, and X-linked Recessive Ichthyosis : Aetiopathogenic Differences and the Impact of Moisturizing Treatment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Torborg Sturesdotter Hoppe; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atopic dermatitis; ichthyosis vulgaris; X-linked recessive ichthyosis; skin barrier function; moisturizers; transepidermal water loss; gene expression; Dermatologi och venereologi; Dermatology and Venerology;

    Abstract : Atopic dermatitis (AD), ichthyosis vulgaris (IV), and X-linked recessive ichthyosis (XLRI) are characterized by dry skin and impaired skin barrier. AD and IV are related to loss-of-function mutations in FLG (encoding filaggrin), whereas XLRI is caused by deletions or inactivating mutations in the steroid sulphatase gene (STS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies on the pH gradient in normal and ichthyotic human skin

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Hans Öhman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; keratinization; hyperkeratosis; desquamation; filaggrin; cholesterolsulfate; tape stripping; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : In search for pathogenetic mechanisms underlying hyperkeratosis, we examined the pH gradient across the stratum corneum in normal and ichthyotic skin. Twenty students and employees, (12 men and 8 womenaged 25-69 years) served as controls. Patients with ichthyoses were recruited from the outpatient clinic (13 men aged 12-71 years). READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic studies of skin barrier defects with focus on atopic dermatitis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Mårten Winge; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]

    Abstract : Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common, complex inflammatory skin disorder where a defect skin barrier is central in the pathogenesis. Mutations in the filaggrin gene cause ichthyosis vulgaris (IV). IV is one of several keratinization disorders named ichthyoses where mutations in skin barrier genes are a common underlying genetic factor. READ MORE
