Special Issue "Molecular Genetics and Pathogenesis of Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
Interests: Keratinizing and bullous disorders (including psoriasis); Hair disorders; Medical mycology; Atopic dermatitis; molecular genetics; regenerative medicine
Psoriasis (PSO) and atopic dermatitis (AD) are common skin diseases by which patients’ QOL has been severely affected. Despite recent progress in the development of novel therapeutics, there have not been perfect therapeutic guidelines to cover all patients. This has is due to the variability and diversity of both diseases, as PSO and AD are multifactorial diseases. In this Special Issue, I would like to summarize genetics, immunology, environmental factors, and co-morbidities on both diseases. I hope that this Special Issue will bring insight into diversity in pathophysiology, and the innovation of novel therapeutic modalities of PSO and AD.
