  1. A simple tool with which to study the course of chronic hand eczema in clinical practice: a reduced-item score.

    Contact Dermatitis 69(2):112 (2013) PMID 23869731

    We evaluated two tools, the Hand Eczema Severity Index (HECSI) and the Hand Eczema Area and Severity score, to determine their ability to predict the Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) of disease severity in patients with moderate to severe hand eczema. We used a stepwise reduction analysis to d...
  2. Undisclosed methyldibromo glutaronitrile causing allergic contact dermatitis in a NSAID cream.

    Contact Dermatitis 67(3):173 (2012) PMID 22897782

  3. Patch testing with the textile dyes Disperse Orange 1 and Disperse Yellow 3 and some of their potential metabolites, and simultaneous reacti...

    Contact Dermatitis 67(3):130 (2012) PMID 22624827

    We hypothesize that the molecules of disperse dyes migrate onto the skin while garments are worn, and are metabolized and degraded by commensal skin bacteria. These molecules penetrate the skin and induce sensitization. Objectives. To evaluate the elicitation capacities of the possible azo-degradati...
  4. Quantifying skin sensitization potency.

    Contact Dermatitis 66(6):356 (2012) PMID 22568851

  5. Late reactions to patch test preparations with reduced concentrations of p-phenylenediamine: a multicentre investigation of the German Conta...

    Contact Dermatitis 64(4):196 (2011) PMID 21392027

    I (0.49%) and 5 in group II (0.63%). In 7 of 8 of the patients with late reactions, patch tests were applied for 48 hr. On retesting, 4 of 5 patients became positive at D2 or D3. Conclusions. The occurrence of late reactions to PPD may be influenced by patch test concentration and duration. PPD 0.4-...
  6. Exposures and reactions to allergens among hairdressing apprentices and matched controls.

    Contact Dermatitis 64(2):85 (2011) PMID 21210822

    Early and extensive exposures to chemical substances such as are found in hair dyes, perfumes and nickel are known risk factors for allergic reactions. Hairdressing apprentices belong to a high-risk group, as they are exposed both occupationally and personally. To estimate the degree of exposure and...
  7. Nickel reactivity and filaggrin null mutations--evaluation of the filaggrin bypass theory in a general population.

    Contact Dermatitis 64(1):24 (2011) PMID 21166815

    Background. It was recently shown that filaggrin null mutation carrier status was associated with nickel allergy and self-reported intolerance to costume jewellery. Because of the biochemical characteristics of filaggrin, it may show nickel barrier properties in the stratum corneum. Objectives. To i...
  8. Fragrance mix II in the baseline series contributes significantly to detection of fragrance allergy.

    Contact Dermatitis 63(5):270 (2010) PMID 20946455

    I (FM I), Myroxylon pereirae and hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde (HICC). Retrospective study of 12 302 patients consecutively patch tested with FM II by members of the Danish Contact Dermatitis Group 2005-2008. FM II gave a positive patch test in 553 patients (4.5%), and in 72.2% of the...
  9. Characteristics of patch test reactions to common preservatives incorporated in petrolatum and water, respectively.

    Contact Dermatitis 64(1):43 (2011) PMID 21039595

    Background. The irritant properties of some preservatives and the use of water as the patch test vehicle for some of them call for a critical evaluation of patch test reactions to preservatives. Objectives. To examine the association between test vehicle (petrolatum versus water) or...
  10. Evidence-based guidelines for the prevention, identification and management of occupational contact dermatitis and urticaria.

    Contact Dermatitis 63(4):177 (2010) PMID 20831687

    Occupational contact dermatitis is the most frequently reported work-related skin disease in many countries. A systematic review was commissioned by the British Occupational Health Research Foundation in response to a House of Lords Science and Technology Committee recommendation....
