The International Dermatology Outcome Measures is a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing evidence-based, patient-centered outcome measures for dermatologic conditions. At the 2018 Alopecia Areata Research Summit, Dr Gottlieb, President of the International Dermatology Outcome Measures, presented an overview of their work in psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, acne, and eczema and discussed the potential areas of mutual interest with the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. Herein, we ...

Technology now exists for rapid screening of mutated laboratory mice to identify phenotypes associated with specific genetic mutations. Large repositories exist for spontaneous mutants and those induced by chemical mutagenesis, many of which have never been fully studied or comprehensively evaluated. To supplement these resources, a variety of techniques have been consolidated in an international effort to create mutations in all known protein coding genes in the mouse. With targeted embryonic s...

Diphenylcyclopropenone (DPCP) is widely considered the most effective topical immunotherapy for refractory or extensive alopecia areata (AA), but questions regarding how long to try DPCP therapy before terminating and what factors are prognostic of therapeutic success still remain unanswered. In this retrospective study of 50 AA patients, we evaluated DPCP efficacy and identified patient factors predictive of therapeutic success/failure. The median duration of DPCP treatment was 3 years, with 47...

Environmental signals from the extracellular matrix (ECM) are transmitted by cell surface receptors that connect to the actin cytoskeleton and to multiple intracellular signaling pathways. To dissect how the ECM regulates cell functions, we are using a three-dimensional (3D) fibrin–fibronectin matrix, resembling the wound provisional matrix. Fibroblasts adhere to fibronectin in this matrix via concomitant engagement of α 5 β 1 integrin receptors and syndecan-4, a transmembrane proteoglycan. An a...

Our data show that IFN-g / mice are resistant to the development of AA, pointing toward an important role of IFN-g in the pathogenesis of AA. The absence of a perifollicular lymphocytic infiltrate in the skin and the reduced expression of T cell activation markers and costimulatory molecules in skin-draining lymph nodes demonstrate that T cells are not activated in the lymph nodes of IFN-g / mice. Therefore, we conclude that IFN-g is involved in T cell activation in AA pathogenesis of C3H/ HeJ m...

Since the first description of the subpopulations of TH1 and TH2 cells, insights into the development and control of these cells as two polarized and physiologically balanced subsets have been generated. In particular, implications of the TH1-TH2 concept for TH cell –mediated skin disorders have been discovered. This article will review the basic factors that control the development of TH1 and TH2 cells, such as the cytokines IL-12 and IL-4 and transcription factors, the possible role of costimu...
TGF-β plays important roles in the induction of catagen during the hair cycle. We examined whether TGF-β2 could activate a caspase in human hair follicles. Using active caspase-9 and -3 specific antibodies, we found that TGF-β2 activated these caspases in two regions, the lower part of the hair bulb and the outer layer of the outer root sheath. In addition, we searched for a plant extract that can effectively suppress TGF-β action. We found that an extract of Hydrangea macrophylla reduced synthe...

Hair growth patterns of 101 Japanese female subjects with diffuse, chronic hair loss and 58 healthy Japanese female volunteers were categorized into subgroups using noninvasive quantitative methods after determining the key parameters of hair growth. Phototrichogram was performed at 0 and 48 h after clipping hairs in the parietal region of the scalp. Shaft diameters of the excised hairs were then measured. Multiple regression analysis indicated that hair densities, hair diameters, short hair rat...

We attempted to establish a coculture model of human dermal papilla cells (DPCs) from androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and keratinocytes (KCs) to study the pathomechanism of AGA. Since expression of mRNA for the androgen receptor (AR) decreased during subcultivation of DPCs in vitro , we transiently transfected the AR expression vector into the DPCs and cocultured them with KCs. In this coculture, androgen inhibited the growth of KCs by 50%, indicating that the DPCs produce diffusible growth suppress...
