Lesional and circulating levels of interleukin -17 and 25 - hydroxycholecalciferol in active acne vulgaris: correlation to disease severity
Objectives: The immunological aspects of inflammatory acne are still incompletely understood, so the current study aims to investigate the possible role of IL-17 and 25 hydroxycholecalciferol (25(OH)D3) in the disease pathogenesis and progression. Materials and Methods: Across-sectional study has been conducted on 135 patients with active acne vulgaris of various severities and 150 matched controls. ELISA assays of serum and ... Read more

Lesional levels of superoxide dismutase and malondialdehyde in paucibacillary and multibacillary leprosy patients
Leprosy or Hansen’s disease (HD) is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium leprae. The ratio of malondialdehyde (MDA)/superoxide dismutase (SOD) may be considered as an index of oxidative stress (OS). Objective To assess the OS by estimating the levels of antioxidant enzyme (SOD), lipid peroxidation products (MDA) and the ratio of MDA/SOD in the skin of paucibacillary (PB) and ... Read more

Survivin as a Novel Biomarker in the Pathogenesis of Acne Vulgaris and Its Correlation to Insulin-Like Growth Factor-I
Survivin, a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein family, has an important role in cell cycle regulation. Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is a polypeptide hormone with wide range of biologic effects including stimulation of lipogenesis in sebaceous glands. Their overexpression in some fibrotic disorders suggests a possible implication of both IGF-I and survivin in the pathogenesis of acne and/or ... Read more
