Title : A Single Reaction-Diffusion Equation for the Multifarious Eruptions of Urticaria

*The talk will be given in Japanese

 

Abstract

Skin develops various eruptions unique to disease entities or individuals in shape, size, color and/or texture of the skin surface. However, most of such visible characteristics cannot be explained by characteristics of individual molecules or cells which are diffusely distributed in the skin in microscopic level. Here we revealed that a simple mathematical structure may explain multifarious eruptions of urticaria, a common skin disorder characterized by rapid appearance and disappearance of local skin edema and flare with itching. Using this model, we succeeded in regenerating many multifarious urticaria eruptions observed on real patients with urticaria. This study may help not only understanding the pathogenesis of urticaria, but also opening an entirely new trail of a mathematical approach to analyze various skin diseases with geometric eruptions and predict the effectiveness of treatments in dry labs.
