  1. 1. Neonatal water and heat exchange : The influence of environmental factors and infant maturity

    Författare :Gunnar Sjörs; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; Neonatal; transepidermal water loss; respiratory water loss; radiant heat; heat exchange; water loss; incubators; Pediatrik; Paediatric medicine; Pediatrisk medicin; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : The environment provided by commonly used infant incubators, the effect of radiantheat and exposure to cold air on the exchange of water and heat between newborninfants and their environment, and the water loss through the skin of infants born at24-25 weeks of gestation were investigated. The evaporation of water from the skinwas measured by the gradient method. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Water transport through perinatal skin : Barrier function and aquaporin water channels

    Författare :Johan Ågren; Gunnar Sedin; Gunnar Flemström; Steven B Hoath; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; Preterm infant; Transepidermal water loss; Aquaporin; Skin biology; Hyperosmolarity; Pediatrik; Paediatric medicine; Pediatrisk medicin; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Sammanfattning : While constituting a well functioning interface with the aqueous environment in utero, the skin offers a poor barrier after very preterm birth. As a result, transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is high, a fact which has important clinical consequences in these infants. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On the measurement of evaporative water loss : methods and clinical applications

    Författare :Gert Nilsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The new method for measurement of water loss by evaporation from the skin described in paper I, offers a high degree of accuracy and improved sensitivity in comparison with devices reported previously. Rapid recordings can be made by technically untrained persons both in clinical departments and in the laboratory. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Skin Barrier Function and mRNA Expression Profiles in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis, Ichthyosis Vulgaris, and X-linked Recessive Ichthyosis : Aetiopathogenic Differences and the Impact of Moisturizing Treatment

    Författare :Torborg Sturesdotter Hoppe; Berit Berne; Hans Törmä; Anders Vahlquist; Charlotta Enerbäck; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atopic dermatitis; ichthyosis vulgaris; X-linked recessive ichthyosis; skin barrier function; moisturizers; transepidermal water loss; gene expression; Dermatologi och venereologi; Dermatology and Venerology;

    Sammanfattning : Atopic dermatitis (AD), ichthyosis vulgaris (IV), and X-linked recessive ichthyosis (XLRI) are characterized by dry skin and impaired skin barrier. AD and IV are related to loss-of-function mutations in FLG (encoding filaggrin), whereas XLRI is caused by deletions or inactivating mutations in the steroid sulphatase gene (STS). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Skin barrier responses to moisturizers

    Författare :Izabela Buraczewska; Hans Törmä; Marie Lodén; Berit Berne; Magnus Lindberg; Ehrhardt Proksch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; skin barrier function; moisturizers; long-term treatment; transepidermal water loss; gene expression; skin pH; lipids; urea; Dermatology and venerology; Dermatologi och venerologi;

    Sammanfattning : Moisturizers are used in various types of dry skin disorders, but also by people with healthy skin. It is not unusual that use of moisturizers is continued for weeks, months, or even years. LÄS MER
