Studies on systemic inflammatory disorders

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder that affects skin areas rich in apocrine glands. HS starts at early adolescence and it is affecting almost 1% of the general population. HS is characterized by exacerbations of heavy inflammation associated with extreme pain and limb and social disability. The Executive Board of the Hellenic Institute for the Study of Sepsis decided to support research activity in HS when data generated from the Out-Patients Department of Immunology of Infections of ATTIKON University General Hospital showed that circulating white blood cells of patients with HS share common functional characteristics with sepsis patients thus making HS a study prototype of systemic inflammation.
