From Bench to Bedside : Novel Therapeutic Approaches to Atopic Dermatitis

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Learn how boron can block the inflammatory cytokines produced in atopic dermatitis
  • Enhance understanding of itch mechanisms as these relate to skin receptors in atopic dermatitis
  • Gain insights into emerging therapies for atopic dermatitis

ABSTRACT

Atopic dermatitis remains a common yet challenging cutaneous disorder.  Recent breakthroughs in the understanding of the basic science of this disorder have allowed new therapies to be introduced. Many of the newest therapies are not steroid based and offer options for patients in both topical and systemic formulations.  This discussion will focus on new and emerging therapies as well as arenas in atopic dermatitis that help understand the impact of the disorder on our patients and their families.
