- Stretching the point: an association between the occurrence of striae and pelvic relaxation?Rachel E B Watson
Dermatological Sciences Research Group, Faculty of Medicine and Human Sciences, The University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom

- Topical photodynamic therapy significantly reduces epidermal Langerhans cells during clinical treatment of basal cell carcinomaG Evangelou
University of Manchester, Manchester M6 6HD, UK
Br J Dermatol 166:1112-5. 2012..Topical photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a widely applied treatment for basal cell carcinoma (BCC). PDT-induced immunosuppression leading to reduced antitumour immune responses may be a factor in treatment failure...
- Low-dose ultraviolet radiation selectively degrades chromophore-rich extracellular matrix componentsMichael J Sherratt
Regenerative Biomedicine, University of Manchester, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Manchester, UK
J Pathol 222:32-40. 2010..As a consequence, this selective acellular photochemical pathway may play an important role in initiating and/or exacerbating cell-mediated ECM remodelling in UVR-exposed skin...
- Topical aminolaevulinic acid-photodynamic therapy produces an inflammatory infiltrate but reduces Langerhans cells in healthy human skin in vivoG Evangelou
Dermatological Sciences, Inflammation Sciences Research Group, School of Translational Medicine, University of Manchester, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Hospital, Manchester, UK
Br J Dermatol 165:513-9. 2011..While PDT induces direct cell death, host inflammatory and immune responses to PDT may contribute to the therapeutic effects...
- Retinoic acid receptor alpha expression and cutaneous ageingRachel E B Watson
Dermatopharmacology Unit, Dermatology Centre, University of Manchester, Irving Building, Hope Hospital, Salford, Manchester M6 8HD, UK
Mech Ageing Dev 125:465-73. 2004..These results demonstrate that intrinsic ageing of human skin is accompanied by significant elevation in the content of RAR alpha and that over-expression of RAR alpha influences expression of MMP-1, an important mediator of skin ageing...
- Oral mucosal keratinocytes express RANTES and ICAM-1, but not interleukin-8, in oral lichen planus and oral lichenoid reactions induced by amalgam fillingsM C Little
Dermatology Centre, University of Manchester, Hope Hospital, Salford, Manchester, UK
Clin Exp Dermatol 28:64-9. 2003..Interleukin-8 was not detected in any of the samples. The expression of ICAM-1 and RANTES by epithelial keratinocytes in the oral mucosa in OLP and OLR could be a key inflammatory mechanism in these diseases...

- Influence of eicosapentaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid, on ultraviolet-B generation of prostaglandin-E2 and proinflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 beta, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interleukin-6 and interleukin-8 in human skin in vivoHassan Shahbakhti
Photobiology Unit, Dermatology Centre, University of Manchester, Manchester M6 8HD, UK
Photochem Photobiol 80:231-5. 2004..Hence, in healthy skin in vivo, there was no evidence that reduction of the sunburn response by EPA is mediated by the proinflammatory cytokines examined; abrogation of UV-B-generated PGE(2) may play a role...
- Severely photosensitive psoriasis: a phenotypically defined patient subsetKirsty J Rutter
Department of Dermatological Sciences, School of Translational Medicine, University of Manchester, Manchester M6 8HD, UK
J Invest Dermatol 129:2861-7. 2009..Thus, a phenotypically distinct subset of psoriasis has been characterized. In contrast with earlier assumptions, UV can provoke psoriasiform features rapidly de novo; a role for memory effector T cells is supported in the early phase...
