A retrospective cohort study of genetic referral and diagnosis of lynch syndrome in patients with cutaneous sebaceous lesions by Meera Kattapuram

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) of cutaneous sebaceous lesions (SL) can be used to screen patients for Lynch syndrome (LS). There is little data on rates of genetic referral and outcomes of genetic testing for patients with SL. This single-center retrospective study characterizes 400 + patients with SL, including IHC results, genetics referrals, and outcomes of genetic testing.…

The integration of large-scale public data and network analysis uncovers molecular characteristics of psoriasis by Antonio Federico

In recent years, a growing interest in the characterization of the molecular basis of psoriasis has been observed. However, despite the availability of a large amount of molecular data, many pathogenic mechanisms of psoriasis are still poorly understood. In this study, we performed an integrated analysis of 23 public transcriptomic datasets encompassing both lesional and…

Association of sarcoidosis with psoriasis: a cross-sectional study in the All of Us research program by Michael J Murphy

Psoriasis and sarcoidosis are inflammatory skin and systemic diseases that may share a similar immunopathogenesis involving a Th1 and/or Th17 polarized immune response. Although the coexistence of sarcoidosis and psoriasis in the same individuals has been reported, the potential association between these diseases at a population-level in the United States has not been evaluated. To…

Decoding molecular programs in melanoma brain metastases by Josefine Radke

Melanoma brain metastases (MBM) variably respond to therapeutic interventions; thus determining patient’s prognosis. However, the mechanisms that govern therapy response are poorly understood. Here, we use a multi-OMICS approach and targeted sequencing (TargetSeq) to unravel the programs that potentially control the development of progressive intracranial disease. Molecularly, the expression of E-cadherin (Ecad) or NGFR, the…
