Psoriasis is a systemic disease
Prof. Gisondi discussed the common genetic background linking psoriasis and its comorbidities and reviewed specific overlapping genes between psoriasis and these comorbidities, including obesity, diabetes, and myocardial infarction. He also noted how inflammatory mediators released from psoriatic lesions can have systemic effects, including effects on the liver, adipose tissue, and skeletal muscle that contribute to endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis.
New non-allergenic, anti-inflammatory fragrance could be game changer for dry skin sufferers
Researchers have developed a novel allergen-depleted and anti-inflammatory fragrance that can be used in moisturisers for people with extremely dry, xerotic skin. Beiersdorf researchers in Germany report the results of two tests proving the fragrance is anti-inflammatory at today's 29th EADV Congress, EADV Virtual.
New evidence shows that systemic inflammation in psoriasis can be treated orally with a non-living strain of a commensal microbe
New data published shows the first clinical evidence of modulating systemic inflammation by oral delivery of a non-living single strain commensal microbe. This new therapeutic class brings hope for a completely new way of treating this debilitating skin condition.
New Research Reveals that Risky Sexual Behaviour and STIs are on the Rise Despite COVID-19 Pandemic
New research launched at the 29th EADV Congress, has found that despite the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, diagnosis of sexually transmitted infections, including gonorrhoea, secondary syphilis and mycoplasma genitalium, have increased.
New analysis reveals ‘long-hauler’ COVID-19 patients with prolonged skin symptoms - Lessons from the International COVID-19 Dermatology Registry
Some COVID-19 patients experience long-lasting skin symptoms that vary according to type of COVID-19 skin rash, a late-breaking abstract at the 29th EADV Congress, EADV Virtual.
Urban living decreases skin bacterial diversity and why is it a problem
Urbanisation is associated with reduced outdoor exposure, increased contact with housing materials, antimicrobials and cleaning products, and increased exposure to synthetic chemical diversity. Through urbanisation, the natural human and plant-based molecules on the hands and skin are largely replaced by synthetic and cosmetic ingredients with an increase in potentially pathogenic bacteria, stress-tolerant bacteria, potentially pathogenic fungi and fungal biomass. These can have a profound impact on skin health and can be associated with typical Western skin pathologies.
