Screening for wound infection relies on the expertise of the provider. Clinical diagnosis of infections based on wound swab/biopsy results often takes a few days and may not assess the full wound. There is a need for a non-invasive tool that can quickly and accurately diagnose wound infection. Leukocyte esterase strips are used to identify various infectious diseases. However, it is not clear whether infected wounds also have elevated leukocyte esterase activities as compared with non-infected w...

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has evolved to a global health problem with a dramatic morbidity and mortality rate impacting our daily life and those of many patients. While there is evidence that some diseases are associated with an increased risk for development of a more severe course of COVID-19, little is known on protective conditions. Importantly, clearance of viral infection and protection against disease manifestation crucially depends on functional innate and adaptive immunity and the interfe...

Melanin is synthesised within melanocytes and transferred to keratinocytes in human skin, thereby regulating skin colour and protecting skin cells against UVR-induced damage. We commonly divide human skin into six phototypes (SPT)-I to -VI (Fitzpatrick scale) according to the skin's tanning response to UVR. In this pilot study, we investigated the impact of UVR (maximum 311nm), blue (peak 450nm) and green visible light (peak 530nm) on melanin production and type in healthy human skin histocultur...

Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) more prevalent and disproportionally affects African American females. Although there are limited studies in HS skin of colour populations in the USA, there is more scarcity of HS skin of colour studies in other countries, which limits the overall understanding of the disease among these patients. Herein, our overview of the 10th European Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation (EHSF) e.V. Conference provided a crude example of the limited number of skin of...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) in South-East Asia and East Asia shows distinct clinical, environmental, physiological and likely genetic differences compared with the West. A male predominance is present, which may be due to differences in smoking habits. Involvement of the buttocks is common in East Asian patients, while the axillae are most commonly affected in South-East Asian patients. Metabolic comorbidities are prevalent in South-East Asian and East Asian HS patients. A family history of HS...
The reported incidence of COVID-19 among cohorts of patients with inflammatory bowel and skin diseases under treatment with biologicals is low. Treatment may further modify disease severity as some biological modifiers, such as anakinra, are also proposed for the management of COVID-19 patients potentially providing HS patients with an advantage. The above preliminary evidence suggests that hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) does probably not provide an increased susceptibility for COVID-19 and that ...

The registration of the tumour necrosis factor-α inhibitor adalimumab in 2015 was a major step forward in the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS). However, it soon became evident that the effectiveness of adalimumab in daily practice was highly variable. A significant unmet medical need of HS patients remained, and the search for novel therapeutic targets was intensified. During the 10th European Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation (EHSF) e.V. Conference, reknown internationa...

Pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) is a neutrophilic dermatose (ND) characterized by a dense neutrophilic infiltrate in the affected tissue. Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are web-like structures released by neutrophils and composed of cytosolic and granule proteins assembled on a scaffold of decondensed chromatin. Very little is known about the role of NETosis in PG. Here, we assessed the possible implication of NETosis in the pathogenesis of PG by investigating the NETosis in the ulcers of 26 PG...

Pretibial myxedema (PTM), characterized by the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans in dermis is an autoimmune skin disorder, which is almost always associated with Graves' disease (GD). Although fibroblast stimulated by thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor (TSHR) antibody, cytokines and growth factors has been postulated as target of the autoimmune process in the dermopathy, the pathogenesis of PTM remains unclear. We hypothesise that the local immune microenvironment of the skin including the an...
