Reliability and agreement testing of a new automated measurement method to determine facial vitiligo extent using standardized ultraviolet images and a dedicated algorithm

, ,
Facial repigmentation is the primary outcome measure for most vitiligo trials. The Facial Vitiligo Area Scoring Index (F-VASI) score is often chosen as the primary outcome measure to assess the efficacy of treatments for facial vitiligo.

In Vitro Assays to Study The Hallmarks of Cancer

In this article, you will learn about some of the most utilized in vitro assays and techniques used to examine the hallmark features of cancer, i.e., the phenotypic traits that enable tumor growth and metastatic dissemination, in the context of anti-cancer drug discovery and development.

Comparative analysis of original face and skin-warped average face images for the scoring of skin attributes

, ,
In the cosmetic field, claim substantiations face several challenges.One that could seem trivial is illustrating the performance of a product. With the growing awareness of subjects’ image rights and the implementation of more regulations to protect personal data, presenting the effects of a product using the very image of a subject becomes increasingly complicated.

Autologous Th2-polarized lymphocytes induce atopic dermatitis lesions in non-atopic human skin xenotransplants

, , ,
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is one of the most common, as yet incurable chronic inflammatory skin diseases, which occurs in distinct endotypes and shows increasing prevalence.
Inflammation is a well-accepted hallmark of cancer and is associated with high proliferation rates and poor prognosis.

How Inflammation Can Spark and Fuel Cancer

A possible link between inflammation and cancer was suggested more than 150 years ago. Today, inflammation is a well-accepted hallmark of cancer and is associated with high proliferation rates and poor prognosis.

Neryl acetate, the major component of Corsican Helichrysum italicum essential oil, mediates its biological activities on skin barrier

Helichrysum italicum (Roth) G. Don subsp. italicum (H. italicum italicum) from the Asteraceae family grows on dry, rocky or sandy ground around the Mediterranean Basin and is commonly known as the everlasting plant.
In Vitro Pharmacology for Drug Discovery and Development

In Vitro Pharmacology for Drug Discovery and Development

The considerations of efficacy and safety must be taken into account throughout the entire drug development process. Thus, to generate high-quality data on the safety and efficacy of their drug candidates, researchers very often take advantage of in vitro pharmacology.

Malassezia restricta-mediated Lipoperoxidation: A Novel Trigger in Dandruff

, ,
Dandruff is a common scalp disorder with multiple microbial and host-related factors contributing to its aetiology, including alterations in scalp sebum.
Ceramides can be found in countless cosmetic formulations.

Ceramides: Why Are They So Important for Skin Health and Beauty?

First, we'll take a look at what ceramides are and the different types we can find. Next, we’ll discuss their role in the skin and precise their importance in the skin’s health and beauty.

Performance and Tolerance of a Protocol for Idiopathic Chronic Greasy Seborrhea in 18 Dogs Using a Shampoo and Mousse Containing Plant Extracts

The study aimed to evaluate the tolerance, performance and effect on hair lipids and skin hydration of a protocol combining applications of one shampoo and subsequent mousses containing plant extracts (Ophytrium and Seboliance) in dogs with an undiagnosed chronic greasy keratinisation disorder.

Evaluation of a new connected portable camera for the analysis of skin microrelief and the assessment of the effect of skin moisturisers

, ,
The skin surface roughness is an indicator of interest for dermatology and cosmetology. Increased in xerotic skin or irritation, it is one of the most common frequent dermatological disorders.

Dermal fibroblasts are the key sensors of aseptic skin inflammation through interleukin 1 release by lesioned keratinocytes

, ,
IL-1 plays a crucial role in triggering sterile inflammation following tissue injury. Although most studies associate IL-1 release by injured cells to the recruitment of neutrophils for tissue repair, the inflammatory cascade involves several molecular and cellular actors whose role remains to be specified.

Clinical and Microbiological Performances and Effects on Lipid and Cytokine Production of a Ceruminolytic Ear Cleaner in Canine Erythemato-Ceruminous Otitis Externa

Erythemato-ceruminous otitis externa (ECOE) is the most common type of otitis in dogs and is generally associated with bacterial and/or yeast infections.
