Immuno dermatology

Immuno dermatology studies skin as an organ of immunity in health and diseases. Several areas have specific attention, such as photo-immunology (effects of UV light on skin defense), inflammatory diseases such as Hidradenitis suppurativa, allergic contact dermatitis and atopic eczema, presumably autoimmune diseases such as vtiligo and psoriasis and finally the immunology of microbial skin diseases such as retrovirus infection and leprosy. New therapies in the development for the immunomodulation of common immunological skin diseases includes biological aimed at neutralizing TNF-Alfa and chemokine receptor inhibitor.
