This article focuses on developments in pigmentary disorders that extend dermatologists' understanding of the field. Areas that are reviewed include the basic biochemistry, pharmacology, and physiology of the melanocortin system; melanosome development; genetic diseases associated with pigmentary disorders; pigmentary disorders secondary to systemic disease; drug-induced hyperpigmentation; environmental exposure to chemicals; and primary disorders of hyperpigmentation such as melasma and lentigines.

Repigmentation of vitiligo with punch grafting and narrow-band UV-B (311 nm)–a prospective study.

* Lahiri K,* Malakar S,* Sarma N,* Banerjee U.

Pigmentary Disorder Unit, Rita Skin Foundation, Calcutta, India. koushik66@vsnl.com

BACKGROUND:

Phototherapy is already established as an effective mode of therapy in vitiligo. An evidence-based study was carried out of the effect of narrow-band (311 nm) ultraviolet-B (NB-UV-B) radiation in 66 surgically treated patients with recalcitrant vitiligo in whom autologous mini-punch grafting was deployed.

Induction of melanocytes from embryonic stem cells and their therapeutic potential.

* Motohashi T, * Aoki H, * Yoshimura N,* Kunisada T.

Department of Tissue and Organ Development, Regeneration and Advanced Medical Science, Gifu University Graduate School of Medicine, Gifu, Japan.

Embryonic stem (ES) cells from many organisms have the capacity to generate in vitro a wide variety of cell types depending on their environment. Understanding precisely how such toti- or pluripotent cells may be driven towards a specific lineage represents a major challenge if our ambition of using ES cells to generate a ready supply of healthy cells for cell-based therapies for a range of diseases is to be realized.

Autologous melanocyte transfer via epidermal grafts for lip vitiligo.

* Gupta S, * Goel A, * Kanwar AJ, * Kumar B.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India. someshgupta@hotmail.com

BACKGROUND:

Vitiligo of the lips is a common concern of great psychologic consequence. Medical therapies are often ineffective due mainly to the absence of hair follicles. The transfer of melanocytes or melanocyte-bearing skin by a surgical procedure may repigment this condition.
