    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Malassezia; dermatoses; yeasts; pityriasis versicolor; atopic dermatitis; seborrheic dermatitis; psoriasis;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to investigate whether the new taxonomy of Malassezia may have important clinical implications. In particular, the studies look at pityriasis versicolor and other dermatological disorders associated with Malassezia yeasts to see whether there is a clear association between the yeast species and body site colonized and/or disease state.

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUPA) in relation to the appem11nce of anergic diseases in children and mothers in late pregnancy and during the lactation period and to the development of atopy in children, as well as the influence of maternal PUF A on their babies.The levels of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, C22:6n-3) and total n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCP) were lower (p = 0.

  5. 5. 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
