2013: The year in review
Dermatology Times
As 2013 came to a close, Dermatology Times asked some of its editorial advisory board members what they considered to be some of the most clinically relevant advances in the past year. Not surprisingly, their answers encompassed recently approved treatment modalities and promising agents that are at various stages in the investigational pipeline. The developments capturing their attention, however, also included some that fall under the category of "what's old is new again."

Gene therapy for skin disease produces long-term benefits
Bioscience Technology
Stem cell-based gene therapy holds promise for the treatment of devastating genetic skin diseases, but the long-term clinical outcomes of this approach have been unclear. In a study online in the ISSCR's journal Stem Cell Reports, researchers evaluated a patient with a genetic skin disorder known as epidermolysis bullosa nearly seven years after he had undergone a gene therapy procedure as part of a clinical trial. The study revealed that a small number of skin stem cells transplanted into the patient's legs were sufficient to restore normal skin function, without causing any adverse side effects.

Study: Florida has more tanning salons than McDonald's restaurants
Miami Herald
Florida, despite its Sunshine State nickname, boasts more indoor tanning facilities than CVS pharmacies or even McDonald's restaurants, according to a new report by University of Miami doctors studying whether skin cancer can be traced to geographic areas. "We were shocked," said Dr. Robert Kirsner, a University of Miami Miller School of Medicine dermatology professor. "Even in the Sunshine State, where we get plenty of exposure, the beds are proliferating."

If my patient signed a consent form, why can he sue me?
Dermatology Times
Physicians often do not understand why having a valid signed consent from the patient fails to knock the lawsuit right out of the box. This bewilderment is not surprising because assumption of risk superficially does look like the informed consent doctrine. As with informed consent, a patient must be informed of specific risks and agree to proceed anyway. And, like informed consent, assumption of risk does not cover reckless or intentional conduct by the defendant. However, a closer look at assumption of risk explains why it is rarely applicable in the medical malpractice setting.
