- Decreased expression levels of L-selectin on subsets of leucocytes and increased serum L-selectin in severe psoriasisM Inaoki
Department of Dermatology, Kanazawa University School of Medicine, Kanazawa, Japan
Clin Exp Immunol 122:484-92. 2000..These results suggest that subsets of leucocytes may be activated in psoriasis, and that L-selectin expression levels on some leucocyte subsets, especially CD4+ T cells, tend to correlate with disease severity of psoriasis...
- Elevated serum levels of soluble L-selectin in patients with systemic sclerosis declined after intravenous injection of lipo-prostaglandin E1M Inaoki

J Dermatol Sci 25:78-82. 2001..05), 7 days (P<0.05) and 14 days (P<0.05) after starting the treatment with lipo-PGE1. These results suggest that L-selectin may be involved in the disease process in SSc, and lipo-PGE1 may alter some inflammatory events in SSc...
- Paraneoplastic pemphigus without antidesmoglein 3 or antidesmoglein 1 autoantibodiesM Inaoki
Department of Dermatology, Kanazawa University School of Medicine, 13 1 Takara machi, Kanazawa, Ishikawa 920 8641, Japan
Br J Dermatol 144:610-3. 2001..This finding is unusual, and it suggests that the target antigen, which is involved in acantholysis, may be other than Dsg 3 in this case...

Department of Dermatology, Kanazawa University School of Medicine, 13 1, Takaramachi, Kanazawa, Ishikawa 920 8641, Japan
J Am Acad Dermatol 45:767-70. 2001..Immunologic analysis revealed that production of anti-desmoglein 1 autoantibodies started when SCC metastasized, and the SCC expressed desmoglein 1, suggesting a pathogenic role of metastasized SCC in developing pemphigus foliaceus...
