Linking Epidermal Barrier Function with Anti-Oxidant Defense Mechanisms in Atopic Dermatitis
The purpose of this study is to perform skin barrier measurements, and skin and serum histochemical studies in order to understand the correlation between oxidative stress, inflammatory markers, and skin barrier function in atopic dermatitis (eczema). Skin biopsy and blood specimens will be collected from patients with atopic dermatitis (eczema) for this study.
