  3. Tissue and circulating microRNA co-expression analysis reveals potential involvement of miRNAs in the pathobiology of frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA). Tziotzios C, Ainali C, Holmes S et al. JID (2017), doi: 10. 1016/j.jid.2017.06.030 MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non coding RNAs that may impact protean biologic functions. This study sought to characterise miRNAs in FFA and probe disease relevance by undertaking tissue and circulating miRNA co-expression analysis in FFA cases and matched controls. They recruited seven newly diagnosed, treatment-naive FFA cases and 7 matched controls. Temporal scalp skin biopsies were obtained from all cases and controls for microarray analysis. Venous blood samples were also obtained from a separate cohort of 10 biopsy-proven, treatment naive FFA cases and 10 matched controls for circulating miRNA analysis. They constructed a co-expression network of tissue miRNAs by assessing pairwise similarity of miRNAs expressed in each group of cases and controls, calculated using the Pearson correlation coefficient (PCC). The resulting FFA network displayed 2,089 co-expressed miRNAs (nodes) with 3,009 non-duplicate interactions (edges), while for controls there were 2,100 co-expressed miRNAs (nodes) with 2,934 non-duplicate interactions (edges). For the circulating miRNA dataset, 55 miRNAs were upregulated in FFA while 11 miRNAs were downregulated compared to controls. To further evaluate differentially expressed circulating miRNAs, they were mapped within tissue-specific co-expression networks. There were 17 miRNAs common in both networks (cases and controls): 3 of these were specific to controls while 9 were representative of FFA. Of those 9 circulating miRNAs, 4 were found to be highly predictive of disease status: hsa-let-7d-5p, hsa-miR-18a-5p, has-miR-20a-5p, and hsa-miR-19a-3p. Finally, they applied GAGE analysis and found MAPK signalling, endocytosis and focal adhesion pathways to be down regulated and enriched in the networks of co-targeting genes across these 4 miRNAs. The authors concluded that these 4 circulating miRNAs were highly predictive of disease status in FFA but that further studies are required to determine mechanistic relevance. By Nicola Cooke

  5. Alopecia UK's Big Weekend!!

    [Ticket Sales close: Sunday 17th September 2017]Come along to Alopecia UK's fourth 'Big Weekend' where we will have a series of events for those affected by alopecia. This year's host city is Birmingham. We have four individual events that make up the weekend and you can choose to attend either one, two, three or all four. Below you can find a brief overview of the weekend... Weekend overview: Friday EVENING: Our Exhibition Hall will be open with reception drinks and canapes. A great opportunity to meet others with alopecia in a relaxed setting (7pm - 9:30pm). Suitable for adults and older teens. We advise children to save themselves for the Saturday! Although we will do our best to put families in touch for the Friday night in case they want to go bowling or something similar. Saturday DAYTIME: A adult conference filled with talks, workshops, exhibitors and demonstrations. The focus here is very much on information sharing (9:30am - 5:30pm). We will also facilitate a Children and Teens specific event within the conference with games, a crafty area, a chill out area, and some fun workshops and speakers as well (10:30am - 4:30pm). More details will be announced over the coming months. Saturday NIGHT TIME: A great opportunity to chat with others over a buffet dinner followed by some fun and dancing! As always we will have a blue theme in honour of it being Alopecia Awareness Month so do dig out your blue dresses, suits, shirts, tops, fancy dress (?!) – anything goes! (7pm - midnight). Sunday DAYTIME: Our Sunday event is typically about doing something awareness related. This year we will be facilitating a photoshoot and video making in order to create lots of content that Alopecia UK can use for awareness both online and in Charity Resources. So we're after some models* please! This is new for 2017 and still needs developed but we would appreciate those who are comfortable being photographed getting involved. It will be a nice relaxed day and I'm sure we'll incorporate a bit of fun, with perhaps a walk through Birmingham to the infamous 'Bullring' for some extra photos (10:30am - 3pm). http://www.alopeciaonline.org.uk/big_weekend_conference_line_up.asp

    The organizing committee from The Society for Hair Science Research (SHSR) and The Japan Society of Clinical Hair Restoration (JSCHR) is pleased to invite you to the 10th World Congress for Hair Research (WCHR), which will take place from October 31 to November 3, 2017 at the Kyoto International Conference Center. It is our great honor once again to host an international hair meeting following our hosting of the very first international hair meeting in Japan as well as The 3rd Intercontinental Meeting of Hair Research Societies in Tokyo. The number and membership of hair societies is ever increasing. The 10th WCHR will bring together hair biologists, tissue engineers, dermatologists, aesthetic scientists, and hair transplantation surgeons worldwide to the historical city of Kyoto with the aim of “visiting the old, finding the new,” as a Japanese proverb says—in other words, to present new knowledge, techniques and approaches for the advancement of hair-related science, while also reviewing the past activities of hair research societies, educational lectures, and clinical case reports for new insights. The congress program will include keynote lectures, plenary and concurrent sessions, scientific posters, clinical workshops, sponsored seminars, and more. Kyoto during the Autumn is especially noteworthy for its beauty; we do hope that you will all be able to attend, not only so that you may enjoy the exciting program we have planned for you, but also so that you may have a chance to enjoy the lovely environs of this ancient city in the Fall.
