    Severity measurement scales for atopic dermatitis are important in clinical trials as objective outcome measures and they are often required for government and private insurance plans. These scales are sometimes underused by clinicians for a number of reasons, including time constraints and lack familiarity. Dr Patrick Fleming joins Dr Kirk Barber, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery, to talk about his article in the July/August edition of the Journal, reviewing the most commonly used atopic dermatitis measurement scales and gives his take on user guides and scoring explanations and inter-scale comparisons.

    Treating PRP with Biologics - With Dr Patrick Fleming

    "A lot of us have had patients with PRP who went on a biologic and they cleared quite rapidly and were very happy afterwards."
    Dr Patrick Fleming joins Kirk Barber, JCMS editor-in-chief, to discuss his article in the Jan/Feb 2020 issue of the journal, titled: “Use of Biologics in Pityriasis Rubra Pilaris Refractory to First-Line Systemic Therapy: A Systematic Review.“
    Dr Patrick Fleming talks about how there has been an increasing number of studies reporting the successful use of biologictherapy in patients with PRP, a relatively rare skin disease, however the data on the efficacy and safety is limited. His objective, along with his colleagues, was to evaluate the existing evidence for utilizing biologics, whether alone or in combination with established systemic therapies, in patients with treatment-resistant pityriasis rubra pilaris.
