Notes from BJD Jan 2006 154(1) Part – I
Today I got the last of three free issues of BJD with a hand written note from the publisher. There was no personal email ID. I wish to Thank Mr Phil Wright (Senior Marketing Manager, Blackwell Publishing Ltd) for sending me copies of BJD. Hope this page shows up on his name search sometime.
I was never interested in animal models in dermatology. Rabbit ear (comedones) and nude mice (Leprosy) were my professor’s favorites. Today I read about NC/Nga mouse model for Atopic Dermatitis. I never thought it will be possible to come out with an animal model for such a complex disorder like Atopic Dermatitis. I also read about Acquired bilateral naevus of Ota like macules or Hori naevus common in women. The name aptly describes the condition. A study of PUPPP (181 patients) documented its two phased presentation. Initial urticarial response and later vesicular – eczematous response.
I will post notes on the rest of the articles later. Now over to some bimatics blogging.
I was reading about the use of niacinamide in BP and CP. Local niacinamide is available here. Will it be useful for the above conditions?

“Children whose mothers are exposed to farm animals and cats are better protected against atopic dermatitis and are less likely to develop this painful inflammation of the skin in their first two years of life.” A group of researches from Zurich University says!
