  1. 1. Characterization of a new amino acid transport system in human epidermal Langerhans cells

    Author : Niels Bendsöe; Lund Dermatologi och venereologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amino acid transport; energy charge; epidermis; glycolysis; lactate; Langerhans cells; L-dopa; mitochondria; omeprazole; Dermatology; venereology; Dermatologi; venereologi;

    Abstract : Based on the discovery of a new amino acid transport system in Langerhans cells (LC), various aspects concerning the L-dopa uptake mechanism into human epidermal LC and the energy metabolism of epidermis have been examined and subsequently characterised. The system lacks any characteristics of other described amino acid transport systems in other cell types. READ MORE

  2. 2. Clinical And Experimental Studies of Contact Allergy to Stent Metals - with focus on gold

    Author : Susanne Ekqvist; Yrkes- och miljödermatologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; B-Au; patch testing; restenosis; contact allergy; Dermatology; metals; gold; stent; B-Ni; nickel;

    Abstract : A large number of patients are treated with coronary stents, and restenosis (recurrent narrowing of the vessel) is a serious problem. Contact allergy to metal ions eluted from stainless steel stents has been suggested to contribute to in-stent restenosis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chemical and Clinical Studies of Isocyanate Contact Allergy with focus on diphenylmethane diisocyanate

    Author : Malin Engfeldt; Yrkes- och miljödermatologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; venereologi; Dermatologi; venereology; Dermatology; occupational; allergic contact dermatitis; polyurethane;

    Abstract : Isocyanates are highly reactive compounds used in the production of polyurethane. Exposure to isocyanates is mainly associated with respiratory disorders, but may also result in allergic contact dermatitis. Reports describing contact allergy to isocyanates are few in number and it has been considered a rare phenomenon. READ MORE

  4. 4. Methylisothiazolinones. Diagnosis and prevention of allergic contact dermatitis

    Author : Birgitta Gruvberger; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; venereology; Dermatologi; Dermatology; Prevention.; Chemical burns; Occupational dermatoses; Allergic contact dermatitis; Guinea pig maximization test; Isolation identification of contact sensitizers; Inactivation; Methylisothiazolinones; Kathon® CG; venereologi;

    Abstract : Preservatives are biologically active substances which are required in water-based products/systems to prevent growth of micro-organisms. Kathon® CG (K-CG), one of several preservatives based on 5-chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazolinon-3-one (MCI) and 2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (MI) has been shown to be a common sensitizer in dermatitis patients.

    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
