Asporin inhibits collagen matrix-mediated intercellular mechanocommunications between fibroblasts during keloid progression.

Longwei Liu, Hongsheng Yu, Yi Long, Zhifeng You, Rei Ogawa, Yanan Du, Chenyu Huang,

Keloids are fibrotic lesions that grow unceasingly and invasively and are driven by local mechanical stimuli. Unlike other fibrotic diseases and normal wound healing, keloids exhibit little transformation of dermal fibroblasts into α-SMA<sup>+</sup> myofibroblasts. This study showed that asporin is the most strongly expressed gene in keloids and its gene-ontology ... Read more >>

Updated Treatment for Acne: Targeted Therapy Based on Pathogenesis.

Ichiro Kurokawa, Alison M Layton, Rei Ogawa,

Previous approaches to acne management have focused on the four main factors implicated in acne, namely, androgen-mediated sebogenesis (considered integral to acne), hyperkeratinization, colonization with Cutibacterium acnes, and inflammation related to both innate and adaptive mechanisms. Recent advances have facilitated potential novel approaches to acne management, as the pathophysiology and ... Read more >>

Mohamed Abdelhakim, Teruyuki Dohi, Mizuho Yamato, Hiroya Takada, Atsushi Sakai, Hidenori Suzuki, Masatsugo Ema, Shigetomo Fukuhara, Rei Ogawa,

<h4>Background</h4>Neovascularization plays a critical role in skin graft survival. Up to date, the lack of specificity to solely track the newly sprouting blood vessels has remained a limiting factor in skin graft transplantation models. Therefore, the authors developed a new model by using Flt1-tdsRed BAC transgenic mice. Flt1 is a ... Read more >>

Imaging in Propeller Flap Surgery.

Shimpei Ono, Hiroyuki Ohi, Rei Ogawa,

Since propeller flaps are elevated as island flaps and most often nourished by a single perforator nearby the defect, it is challenging to change the flap design intraoperatively when a reliable perforator cannot be found where expected to exist. Thus, accurate preoperative mapping of perforators is essential in the safe ... Read more >>
