Expression of Fas Protein in Skin Biopsies of Participants With Scarring Alopecia
This is a single-center study, designed to evaluate the expression of Fas protein in skin
biopsies of patients with scarring alopecia including fourteen patients with central
centrifugal scarring alopecia (CCSA), three patients with lichen planopilaris (LP) and three
patients with discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE). Skin biopsies of five healthy participants
will be used as controls.
Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Prospective
To evaluate the expression of Fas protein in skin biopsies of participants with central centrifugal scarring alopecia (CCSA), lichen planopilaris (LP) and discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) and in healthy controls.
