Allergic contact dermatitis to slime: The epidemic of isothiazolinone allergy encompasses school glue.

kids sun exposure

The slime craze is all the rage among tweens. Slime is a homemade stretchy play material created by mixing together household items such as school glue, borax, shaving cream, and contact lens solution. We present a case of allergic contact dermatitis secondary to methylchloroisothiazolinone/methylisothiazolinone (MCI/MI) in school glue used to make slime; mass spectroscopy confirmed …

Irritant Contact Dermatitis.

kids sun exposure

Contact dermatitis accounts for 95% of occupational skin disorders. Irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) is often caused by cumulative exposure to weak irritants, accounting for 80% of all cases of contact dermatitis. ICD can co-exist with atopic dermatitis (AD) and allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Patients with AD and ACD may have …

Isothiazolinone derivatives and allergic contact dermatitis: a review and update.

kids sun exposure

Allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) from isothiazolinones has frequently been described in the literature. Following an epidemic of sensitization to methylchloroisothiazolinone/ methylisothiazolinone (MCI/MI) in the 1980’s, and more recently to MI, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety of the European Commission banned their use in leave-on products, whilst restricting that in …

Regulatory control of DNA end resection by Sae2 phosphorylation.

kids sun exposure

T cells critically depend on reprogramming of metabolic signatures to meet the bioenergetic demands during activation and clonal expansion. Here we identify the transcription factor Nur77 as a cell-intrinsic modulator of T cell activation. Nur77-deficient T cells are highly proliferative, and lack of Nur77 is associated with enhanced T cell …

(E)‑phenethyl 3‑(3,5‑dihydroxy‑4‑isopropylphenyl) acrylate gel improves DNFB-induced allergic contact hypersensitivity via regulating the balance of Th1/Th2/Th17/Treg cell subsets.

kids sun exposure

(E)‑phenethyl 3‑(3,5‑dihydroxy‑4‑isopropylphenyl) acrylate gels (THCA354) is a novel polyphenols acrylic acid derivative. To investigate the immunoregulatory mechanisms of THCA354, we established a mouse model of 2,4‑dinitrofluorobenzene (DNFB)-induced allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). Responses of Th1, Th2, Th17 and regulatory T cells (Tregs) were determined by flow cytometry, reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction …
