Quality of life in Vitligo patients from Upper Egypt: Relationship with clinical characteristics.
BACKGROUND: Recent studies have focused on the quality of life (QOL) in patients with dermatological diseases. Vitiligo is an acquired pigmentary disorder that affects at least I% of the general population, and may considerably affect QOL. The objective of this study was to assess QOL in a group of vitiligo patients from Sohag Governorate, Upper Egypt, and to determine its ... Read more

Tacrolimus versus Narrow Band-UVB in the treatment of Vitiligo: A clinical and laboratory evaluation.
INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES Vitiligo is a common disease with an immunological background. There is no standard treatment regimen for vitiligo. Interleukin 17 (IL-17) may play a role in pathogenesis of vitiligo. Evaluation of Tacrolimus and Narrow band UVB (NB-UVB) in treatment of vitiligo both clinically and by measurement of IL-17 before and after treatment. MATERIALS & METHODS 45 patients with ...

Tacrolimus versus narrowband ultraviolet b in the treatment of vitiligo: a clinical and laboratory evaluation.
Background Etiopathogenesis of vitiligo is unclear. Immunological background has a role.Interleukin 17 (IL-17) may play a role in its pathogenesis. There is no standard treatment regimen for vitiligo; however, calcineurin inhibitors may be an effective treatment option. Objective The aim was to evaluate tacrolimus versus narrowband ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) intreatment of vitiligo, both clinically and by measurement of IL-17 before ... Read more

Comparative study of the immunological profile in stable segmental and non-segmental Vitiligo patients undergoing melanocyte keratinocyte transplantation.
Vitiligo is an acquired autoimmune depigmentation of the skin, affecting 2%of the population with great impact on quality of life, which is more devastating in people with skin of color. The most important selection criterion in vitiligo for considering melanocyte keratinocyte transplantation procedure (MKTP) is stability. However, there is no consensus regarding the required period to define clinical stability. Moreover, ... Read more

Flow Cytometric Analysis of Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes in Patients with Vitiligo
Vitiligo is an acquired cutaneous disorder characterized by progressive and selective destruction of melanocytes. Although, the exact etiology of vitiligo is still obscure, autoimmunity is strongly implicated in its pathogenesis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the immunological alterations in the peripheral lymphocytes in patients with vitiligo and their possible immunomodulation by narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy. The study ... Read more
