Korean researchers develop therapy for atopic dermatitis   국내 연구진… 혈액으로 난치성 아토


There′s a common skin disease known as atopic
dermatitis… that makes your skin very dry and itchy all the time… and often leads
to infections. Fortunately, a Korean research team has
developed an effective solution for this very unpleasant problem.
Won Ji-hyun reports. Atopic dermatitis, or AD, is one of the
most common chronic skin diseases out there… for both children and adults.
People who have it… may have a history of allergic diseases… and they get dry, itchy
skin that′s also often red and swollen. It can be extremely unpleasant,… so much
so for one patient that he hasn′t been able to sleep comfortably for 16 years.
″Not being able to sleep is the most painful part. There′s also pus that oozes out of
the rash on my skin. And it sticks to my clothes after I get dressed, which is very inconvenient.″
But relief is on the way. Korean researchers have found a way to treat
AD using a patient′s own blood… through what′s called autologous immunoglobulin
therapy. The team… led by Dr. Nahm Dong-ho of Ajou
University Hospital… conducted a clinical trial on patients with severe cases of AD.
The team gave the patients repeated intramuscular injections of a purified solution of their
own plasma. In just eight weeks, the protein concentration
in the plasma had stimulated the patients′ immune systems, resulting in a clinical
improvement of more than 30 percent. ″Immunoglobulin treatments are common in
the scientific world. But the key part of our research is how we purify the plasma.
We prepare the immunoglobulin solution in a completely sterile environment.″
The treatment has attracted attention for its efficacy, and scientists say there are
almost no side effects, as the method uses the patients′ own blood.

    This eczema guide “Jαmzοzο Kuz” (Google it) is perfectly wonderful, it cleared my eczema on my hands in two days. It`s been a few months since I got this ailments, and I could say that this guide is far better than the medicated steroid creams which I have tried.
