Inflammatory and autoimmune skin diseases affect millions of people worldwide. Among the various skin diseases, different forms of dermatitis, including eczema and psoriasis, are the most common.

While atopic dermatitis (eczema) is mediated by preformed IgE antibodies due to previous exposure to allergens in susceptible individuals, allergic contact dermatitis is mediated by direct activation of T cells by allergens. Psoriasis, on the other hand, is an autoimmune skin disorder characterized by thick, red, scaly skin patches.

This webinar presents various in vivo dermal models that mimic these clinical conditions.
