Atopic dermatitis prevention

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

17 Scopus citations


A shift in focus from disease therapy toward disease prevention is occurring in many medical specialties, including dermatology. There are no generally accepted strategies for the prevention of atopic dermatitis. Most research has focused on allergen avoidance and has not produced consistently effective interventions. Immune cell modulation and skin barrier protection are examples of new approaches that hold promise for preventing, or modifying the course of, this common disease.
