Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a common yet poorly understood condition. In particular, the significance of inflammatory cells close to the infrainfundibulum of transitional hairs remains obscure. This study was conducted in 20 men who used a lotion containing the antimicrobials, piroctone olamine and triclosan, regularly for 18 months. At entry, mild pruritus and abnormal hair loss were reported by the volunteers. During treatments, pruritus resolved rapidly. Comparison of clinical photographs and trichograms taken at 3-month intervals suggested signs of hair regrowth with moderate increase in density of transitional hairs. Biopsies taken at 6-month intervals were processed for immunohistochemistry. There was a decrease in the density of activated T cells in the region of the follicular infrainfundibulum and isthmus over time. UgG deposits found within the epithelial sheaths at entry to the study were absent in the subsequent biopsies. The volume of the sebaceous glands, as assessed by computerized morphometry, was not modified by the treatment. It was concluded that inflammation associated with AGA transitional hairs may be driven by the presence of microorganisms harboured in the infrainfundibulum. They may modulate the severity of AGA and may potentially be controllable. This offers a new possibility of prevention and partial reversal of hair loss in AGA. [less ▲]

The neuropeptides act as mediators in the transmission of nervous influx and as messengers between the nervous system and other cell populations. The skin contains numerous neuropeptides which are involved in the regulation of inflammation, immunomodulation, and thermoregulation. Cutaneous trophicity, pigmentation, and to a lesser extent sebaccous secretions are also influenced by neuropeptides. This review describes the functions of the most important neuropeptides encountered at the level of the skin. [less ▲]

A number of dermatological diseases are associated with distinct HLA types. These associations vary in different populations and ethnic groups. HLA determination can be related to different diseases courses, various anatomical predilection sites and can be used as a diagnostic tool. However, the pathogenic role of HLA in susceptibility to specific dermatological diseases often remains unclear. [less ▲]

La connaissance du système immunitaire cutané a beaucoup progressé durant les dernières années. Considérée auparavant comme un organe passif de protection, on sait aujourd'hui que la peau est un organe immunocompétent. Le vieillissement cutané et l'exposition à la lumière ultraviolette ont une influence importante sur le système immunitaire cutané. Après une brève actualisation et description des cellules immunocompétentes de l'épiderme et du derme, nous considérerons la modulation du système immunitaire cutané liée au photovieillissement.
