In the special section on itch in the January 2022 issue, 4 invited Reviews and a Commentary provide a complementary introduction into the exciting and rapidly advancing field of itch research. Stemming from cutting-edge research in neuroscience, immunology, and skin biology, these advancements, which are concisely described in these articles, are already impacting patient care.

Zhu et al. report that histone deacetylases 1/2 are essential for maintaining proliferation and survival of epidermal and basal cell carcinoma precursors via inhibition of p53 and p16. These findings suggest that the potential efficacy of inhibitors of these enzymes for treatment of skin cancers may depend on the status of p53 and p16 in the tumors. See the accompanying commentary.

Gharaee-Kermani et al. utilized the murine imiquimod model of human psoriasis to demonstrate that expression of IFN-κ regulates the initiation of psoriasiform inflammation, disease severity, neutrophil recruitment, and cytokine production. Targeting this type of interferon early in disease may control inflammation in psoriasis. See the accompanying commentary.
