  • Abstract Title

    Multimodal Analyses of Stable Vitiligo Skin Identify Tissue Interactions That Control Disease Persistence

  • Abstract Take Home Message

    Stress keratinocytes exhibit a unique signature – metabolic preferences for oxidative phosphorylation, expression of stress keratins, alarmins and CXCL9/10 and diminished WNT signaling – and likely drive the persistence of white patches in vitiligo. They may be targeted for therapy in the future.
