Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Outstanding progresses have been done in the last few decades in dermatology, especially regarding chronic inflammatory skin diseases. Indeed, major advances in understanding the pathogenesis of the most common inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and hidradenitis suppurativa have led to the development of selective and targeted innovative therapies. The latter include biologic drugs (chimeric, humanized and fully human monoclonal antibodies), biosimilars and small molecules which have completely revolutionized chronic inflammatory skin diseases treatment.

However, significant research efforts are still needed. Precision medicine should guide genetic and pharmacogenomic studies in order to highlight biomarkers which could aid the clinician in predicting disease course, prompt diagnosing comorbidities, predicting treatment response and, therefore, performing an evidence-based treatment selection in order to have the highest possibility to guarantee the right treatment for the right patient at the right time.

The Special Issue entitled “"Chronic Inflammatory Skin Diseases: an Update for the Clinician” is now open for submissions, welcoming papers which aims to bring together the most relevant scientific research on chronic inflammatory skin diseases, focusing on epidemiology, burden, pathophysiology, and recent or emerging advancements in therapy.
