Cutaneous Immunology of Acral Skin
Enrollment status: Open
When inflammatory skin diseases like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis occur on the soles of the feet or the palms of the hand, it greatly impacts the patient’s quality of life more so than when they occur on other body sites. Inflammation on the hands and feet tend to be much more difficult to control than inflammation at other body sites. This suggests that the inflammatory skin disease process behaves differently in the hands and feet versus other areas of the skin. The purpose of this study is to characterize the nature of the skins immune system in both healthy and diseased skin collected from the hands (palms) and feet (soles).
