Liver X receptor: therapeutic targeting of common pathways in Psoriasis and Cardiovascular co-morbidities
Both psoriasis and atheroslcerosis are diseases characterized by a chronic and systemic inflammatory profile with local lipid disturbances that alter the barrier function of the skin (psoriasis) and cause the development of atherosclerotic plaques (atherosclerosis).
The important role of stratum corneum lipids for the cutaneous barrier function
The skin protects the body from unwanted influences from the environment as well as excessive water loss. The barrier function of the skin is located in the stratum corneum (SC).
Sylvia van Beugen wins award for publication on psychodermatology

The role of lipids in the barrier function of the skin
The outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum (SC), is responsible for the skin barrier function, protecting the body from pathogens, chemicals and other unwanted substances from the external environment. The SC lipid matrix provides the only continuous pathway through the SC and is considered…
