Abstract

Studies of the prevalence of atopic dermatitis (AD) have provided insights into associated environmental risk factors, demonstrating the complex interactions between the presence of filaggrin (FLG) gene defects and environment. Among other important findings is that elevated transepidermal water loss (TEWL) in newborns is a strong predictor of AD, regardless of FLG status. Recently recognized predictors of disease course and severity include onset of AD signs and symptoms before 12 months of age and the presence of an FLG mutation and concomitant immunoglobulin E sensitization early in life.
