1. New biochip immunofluorescence test for the serological diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris and foliaceus: A review of the literature (PubMed)

New biochip immunofluorescence test for the serological diagnosis of pemphigus vulgaris and foliaceus: A review of the literature The immunoassays that are available for the serological diagnosis of the more common subtypes of autoimmune blistering diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris (PV) and pemphigus foliaceus (PF) include enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) testing to specific antigens desmoglein (Dsg)1 and Dsg3, direct immunofluorescence (DIF), indirect immunofluorescence (IIF (...) ), and immunoblotting. A review of the literature on the biochip assay was conducted. Six studies investigated the validity of a new biochip, mosaic-based, IIF test in patients with pemphigus and demonstrated its relatively high sensitivity and specificity (Dsg3: 97.62-100%, 99.6-100%; Dsg1: 90%, 100%) in comparison with ELISA (Dsg3: 81-100%, 94-100%; Dsg1: 69-100%, 61.1-100%), and/or IIF (PV: 75-100%, 91.8-100%; PF: 67-100%) using suitable substrates. So far, validation studies of the biochip have been conducted

2. New onset pemphigus foliaceus during pregnancy: A rare case (PubMed)

New onset pemphigus foliaceus during pregnancy: A rare case Pemphigus is a rare autoimmune disease during pregnancy. Among the different pemphigus types, pemphigus foliaceus (PF) is even rarer than pemphigus vulgaris. We present a case of PF in a 36-year-old female patient who presented with PF onset during pregnancy in the form of a disseminated, erythematosquamous rash. A diagnosis was made on the basis of histologic, immunofluorescence, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay results (...) . A complete remission was recorded a month after steroid treatment initiation. The patient delivered a premature (33 weeks) but otherwise healthy baby girl. Only three cases of PF have been reported in two retrospective studies found in the English-language bibliography. Although pemphigus during pregnancy is a rare disease and treatment guidelines have not yet been elucidated, the management of these cases is individually evaluated. In all cases, the primary goal should be the control of the maternal

3. Interventions for pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus. (PubMed)

Interventions for pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus. A range of interventions have been described for treatment of pemphigus, however the optimal therapeutic strategy has not been established.To assess the efficacy and safety of all interventions used in the management of pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus.We searched the Cochrane Skin Group Specialised Register (October 2008), The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (The Cochrane Library Issue 4, 2008), MEDLINE (...) included studies.Eleven studies with a total of 404 participants (337 pemphigus vulgaris, 27 pemphigus foliaceus and 40 not specified ) were identified. The quality of included studies was not high, the majority of studies did not report allocation concealment, and power was limited by very small sample sizes. Interventions assessed included prednisolone dose regimen, pulsed dexamethasone, azathioprine, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, dapsone, mycophenolate, plasma exchange, topical epidermal growth
