We thank Ricceri et al. for their comments (1) and interest in our study (2). Despite the recent advances in prevention and treatment of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, these two chronic infections still represent the most common cause of chronic liver disease. Dermatologists are frequently encountering patients with psoriatic disease who have concomitant HBV or HCV infection in daily clinical practice. Dr Ricceri provided in his letter further long-term follow-up data (60 months) on the use of etanercept or adalimumab in 17 psoriatic patients affected by past HBV infection or chronic HCV infection...

Vascular twin nevi (VTN) are characterized by the simultaneous dermatological manifestatiton of a telangiectatic naevus close to a nevus anemicus. Nevus anemicus (NA) is a vascular anomaly characterized by localized pale patches with normal melanine and melanocyte level. According to twin spotting phenomenon crossing-over in heterozygous somatic-cells during mitosis results in two different offspring homozygous cells. Consequent to this mechanism, two different vascular anomalies may occur at the same region...

Micronized copper azole (MCA) and micronized copper quaternary (MCQ) are the latest wood preservatives to replace the liquid alkaline copper and chromated copper arsenate preservatives due to concerns over the toxicity or lack of effectiveness of the earlier formulations. Today, the use of MCA has become abundant in the wood preservative industry with approximately 38millionlbs of copper carbonate being used to treat lumber each year. Despite this widespread usage, little information is available on the bioaccessibility of this preservative upon gastrointestinal exposure...

The creation of artificial liver tissue is an active area of research due to the shortage of donors for liver transplantation. Here we investigated whether a simple and efficient cell coating technique developed in our laboratory could be used to generate functional vascularized liver tissue. This technique creates three-dimensional tissue by loading cells sterically onto other cells that have been coated with layer-by-layer (LbL) nanofilms of fibronectin and gelatin, two extracellular matrix proteins. We used this technique to construct homogenous, dense, well-vascularized liver tissue from cryopreserved human primary hepatocytes, human umbilical vein endothelial cells, and normal human dermal fibroblasts...

This protocol describes a unique in vitro method for the generation of a 3D human lymphatic network within native connective tissue devoid of any exogenous material such as scaffolds or growth factors. In this five-stage protocol, human lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) cocultured with dermal fibroblasts spontaneously organize into a stable 3D lymphatic capillary network. Stage 1 involves the isolation of primary fibroblasts and LECs from human skin. Fibroblasts are then cultured to produce connective tissue rich in extracellular matrix (stage 2), onto which LECs are seeded to form a network (stage 3)...

Thymosin beta 4 (Tβ4) is a peptide that has been shown in dermal, corneal, and cardiac preclinical injury models to potentially affect tissue protection, regeneration, and repair. Sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease (SPSD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder associated with a high incidence of recurrence, chronic fistulation, and a challenging postoperative surgical wound healing process. Retrospectively, an immunohistochemical analysis was conducted to evaluate endogenous Tβ4 expression in excisional skin biopsies from patients with SPSD...
