Periostin is a Novel Itch Mediator
Chronic allergic itch is a common symptom affecting millions of people, but its pathogenesis is not fully understood. Periostin is an extracellular matrix protein that is highly expressed in the skin. Researchers have identified that Periostin can directly activate itch-associated neurons in the skin. Blocking the Periostin receptors on these neurons reduced the itch response in a mouse model.
