  1. 1. Skin barrier responses to moisturizers

    Author : Izabela Buraczewska; Hans Törmä; Marie Lodén; Berit Berne; Magnus Lindberg; Ehrhardt Proksch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; skin barrier function; moisturizers; long-term treatment; transepidermal water loss; gene expression; skin pH; lipids; urea; Dermatology and venerology; Dermatologi och venerologi;

    Abstract : Moisturizers are used in various types of dry skin disorders, but also by people with healthy skin. It is not unusual that use of moisturizers is continued for weeks, months, or even years. READ MORE

  2. 2. Non-invasive monitoring of low molecular weight biomarkers relevant to skin inflammation and cancer

    Author : Skaidre Jankovskaja; Tautgirdas Ruzgas; Johan Engblom; György Marko-Varga; Melinda Rezeli; Pawel Lukasz Urban; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Tryptophan; Kynurenine; Phenylalanine; Tyrosine; Low molecular Weight Biomarkers; Non-Invasive; Skin Surface Sampling; Skin Permeability; Hydrogels; Prussian White; Health and society; Hälsa och samhälle;

    Abstract : Development of skin inflammation and cancer in viable epidermis and dermis involve slow molecular weight (LMW) metabolites. We hypothesize that these LMW compounds can be collected on the surface of the skin and used for non-invasive diagnostics of skin disorders. READ MORE

  3. 3. Laser Doppler perfusion imaging : methodology and skin applications

    Author : Karin Wårdell; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Over the last decade a number of emerging technologies have become available for the non-invasive study of skin anatomy and physiology. In this thesis, a method for mapping tissue perfusion based on the laser Doppler technique is presented together with some of the associated experimental and clinical applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation of hand skin temperature : Infrared thermography in combination with cold stress tests

    Author : Katarina Leijon Sundqvist; Niklas Lehto; James Mercer; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cold provocation; rewarming; thermoregulation; dynamic IR thermography; Health Science; Hälsovetenskap;

    Abstract : AbstractSince ancient times, warm or cold skin on the human body has been used as a parameter in evaluating health. Changes in body temperature are attributed to diseases or disorders. The assessment of body temperature is often performed to measure fever by detecting an elevated core temperature. READ MORE

  5. 5. Functional aspects of tactile directional sensibility

    Author : Helena Backlund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Human; directional sensibility; hairy skin; hemispherectomy; postural control; glabrous skin; fMRI; psychophysics;

    Abstract : Tactile directional sensibility, i.e. the ability to tell the movement direction of a moving tactile stimulus, depends on the parallel processing of spatiotemporal information and information about changes in the pattern of skin tension. READ MORE
