Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) is a solution of human IgG, salt, sugars and solvents, which is used to treat a multitude of diseases. Although IVIg has been known to treat many diseases safely and successfully, there are relatively few supporting randomized controlled trials. In this article, we review the biological mechanisms of IVIg in dermatological disorders and the practicalities of its use, including its mechanism of action, dosing, availability, costs and adverse effects.

Proanthocyanidins (PCs) are naturally occurring polyphenolic compounds abundant in many vegetables, plant skins (rind/bark), seeds, flowers, fruits, and nuts. Numerous in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated myriad effects potentially beneficial to human health, such as antioxidation, anti-inflammation, immunomodulation, DNA repair, and antitumor activity. Accumulation of prooxidants such as reactive oxygen species (ROS) exceeding cellular antioxidant capacity results in oxidative stress (OS), which can damage macromolecules (DNA, lipids, and proteins), organelles (membranes and mitochondria), and whole tissues...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) influences patients' lives in many ways. The most troublesome symptom of HS is chronic pain, of mild-to-moderate intensity, which is reported by almost all patients. With reference to psychosocial evaluation, HS appears to be a highly debilitating disease. The major factors influencing patients' well-being are disease severity, the number of flares or affected skin areas, and the lesion location. The mean Dermatology Life Quality Index scores of 8·3-12·7 points obtained among patients with HS are typical for severe dermatoses, which have a large impact on patients' quality of life (QoL)...

INTRODUCTION: The interleukin (IL)-1 pathway has been identified as being involved in inflammatory and neoplastic skin diseases such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, neutrophilic dermatosis, melanoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. Drugs developed to target the IL-1 pathway are currently used to treat these pathologies, and although they are becoming more selective, they are not exempt from adverse events and high costs. Integrating the best research evidence with clinical experience and patient needs has been shown to improve care, health, and cost outcomes...

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory, lifelong disease with a high prevalence (afflicting approximately 1-5% of the population worldwide) and is associated with significant morbidity. The introduction of biologic therapies has improved the management of this disease. Multiple biologic medicines that block cytokine signaling, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF) antagonists (adalimumab, etanercept, and infliximab) and inhibitors of interleukin (IL)-17 (brodalumab, ixekizumab, and secukinumab), IL-23 (guselkumab), or IL-12/23 (ustekinumab), are approved for the treatment of psoriasis...

BACKGROUND: Current health care costs are unsustainable, with a large percentage of waste attributed to doctor practices. Medical educators are developing curricula to address value-based care (VBC) in education. There is, however, a paucity of curricula and assessments addressing levels higher than 'knows' at the base of Miller's pyramid of assessment. Our objective was to: (1) teach residents the principles of VBC using active learning strategies; and (2) develop and pilot a tool to assess residents' ability to apply principles of VBC at the higher level of 'knows how' on Miller's pyramid...

BACKGROUND: Hospital revenues generated by diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) are in part dependent on the coding of secondary diagnoses. Therefore, more and more hospitals trust specialized coders with this task, thereby relieving doctors from time-consuming administrative burdens and establishing a highly professionalized coding environment. However, it is vastly unknown if the revenues generated by the coders do indeed exceed their incurred costs. METHODS: Coding data from the departments of dermatology, ophthalmology, and infectious diseases from Rostock University Hospital from 2007-2016 were analyzed for the effects of secondary diagnoses on the resulting DRG, i...

Insulin-degrading enzyme (IDE) is an atypical zinc-metalloendopeptidase that hydrolyzes insulin and other intermediate-sized peptide hormones, many of which are implicated in skin health and wound healing. Pharmacological inhibitors of IDE administered internally have been shown to slow the breakdown of insulin and thereby potentiate insulin action. Given the importance of insulin and other IDE substrates for a variety of dermatological processes, pharmacological inhibitors of IDE suitable for topical applications would be expected to hold significant therapeutic and cosmetic potential...
