It has been said that every disease and medical problem is due, at least in part, to inflammation. Certainly, skin problems are no exception to this paradigm and, in fact, inflammatory skin diseases represent the number one problem in dermatology. These disorders include contact dermatitis, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, inflammation from medical procedures such as radiation treatments, and even sunburn. In addition, inflammation plays a key role in the skin aging process. This Special Issue, "The Role of Inflammation in Skin Aging", will cover a range of topics related to the cause, prevention and treatment of inflammation induced skin aging. Articles within this Special Issue will include:
- Reviews on the key inflammatory mediators and cellular events in skin that contribute to skin aging.
- Articles on changes to skin structure and gene expression caused by inflammation.
- Reviews on the mechanism of action of UV radiation in triggering an inflammatory response in skin cells.
- Overviews regarding the role of the immune system in skin inflammation and aging
- Research reports on the role of antioxidants in blocking free radical induced inflammation and aging in skin.
- The search for natural ingredients that can block the inflammatory response in skin and prevent skin damage and aging.
