Atopic Dermatitis: The new frontier
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, pruritic, inflammatory skin disease characterised primarily by a cutaneous barrier deficiency and mediated by cutaneous inflammation. The disease has a significant negative impact on patients’ mental and physical functioning, especially due to its chronic, unremitting time course and associated sleep deprivation from pruritus.
This module highlights recent progress in the understanding of the inflammatory pathways involved in AD impacting on treatment of the severe presentations of this condition.
