Authors: Kasiraman V, Atwan AA, Durojaiye OC, Kalavala M, Piguet V Abstract Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) plays an important role in containing mycobacterial infections. With the rapidly increasing role of TNF inhibitors in dermatology, tuberculosis (TB) is becoming an important and worrisome concern to dermatologists.

Social impact of the burden of psoriasis: effects on patients and practice. (Fri, 29 Aug 2014)
Authors: Feldman SR, Malakouti M, Koo JY Abstract The raised, scaly, and erythematous plaques associated with psoriasis can be cosmetically disfiguring, which may provoke disgust, fear, and aversion in others. Consequently, the social stigma of psoriasis can be devastating for patients, evoking feelings of shame and anxiety about how they are perceived. In recent years, appreciation of psoriasis as a disease that can cause social distress and impairment has increased. This review discusses the manifold social burdens of psoriasis; different and emerging therapies that may mitigate these burdens by improving outcomes associated with the underlying disease; and psoriasis management in the context of healthcare reform changes focused on assessing the quality and value of patient care....

ConclusionHLA‐B*58 was associated with GT and HLA‐B*57 was possibly associated with psoriasis. This suggested that some GT cases may represent true oral psoriasis and some may represent only GT.

The role of neuropeptides in the control of regional immunity (Mon, 25 Aug 2014)
Abstract: Neuropeptides (NPs) and neurotransmitters are a heterogeneous group of soluble factors that make connections within the neuroendocrine and immune systems. NPs, including substance P (SP), vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), α melanocyte–stimulating hormone (α-MSH), and calcitonin gene–related peptide (CGRP), released by nerves that innervate the skin, can modulate the action of innate and adaptive skin immunity as well as the skin cells functions. Their role in several inflammatory skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and vitiligo, and in the isotopic response has been reported.Further progress in understanding the various processes that modulate the interactions of the nervous and the skin immune system is essential to develop effective treatment for infla...
