Scientific summary

The skin constitutes a major barrier to the outside, which is constantly confronted to environmental aggressions of physical, chemical or microbial origin. The skin includes an immune system, able to develop an innate and adaptive immune response. In certain circumstances these responses can be exacerbated and then lead to immune-mediated skin disorders, such as skin adverse drug reactions and autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus and autoimmune bullous diseases. The objective of our group was to understand the immunological mechanisms which sustain these immune dermatological diseases. A first project was aimed to understand the role of the T cells in drug- induced eruptions and to assess, the respective roles of drugs and viral reactivations on the T cell activation. A second project was focused on the role of TLRs on the development of the autoimmune B cell response in lupus erythematosus, which is characterized by the diversity of the autoantibody response. Thirdly we performed a biological and clinical study on the innovative treatment of pemphigus patients with anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody. These studies  were based not only on murine experimental models, but also on an original cognitive biological research in humans during therapeutic trials evaluating innovative treatments.
