The Inherited Barrier Defect of Atopic dermatitis

The Inherited Barrier DefectCauses of Atopic dermatitis Overview The Immune System’s Role The Inherited Barrier Defect The Microbiome’s Role Role of Infections Allergens and Eczema Stress and Climate Studies indicate that inflammation in atopic dermatitis stems from inherited abnormalities in the skin barrier, particularly in filaggrin expression. Abnormalities in filaggrin, a protein crucial for skin integrity, are associated with severe and persistent eczema. In atopic dermatitis, there’s often an imbalance in T Helper lymphocytes, with an excess of Th-2 cells. These cells, along with associated chemical messengers like cytokines, contribute …
