This book contains the proceedings from the First International Symposium on the Biological Role of Proteinases and Their Inhibitors in Skin that was held in Tokyo in late 1984. The book is edited by three internationally accomplished investigators in cutaneous proteinases, Dr Gerald S. Lazarus, Dr HopsuHavu, and Dr Hideoki Ogawa. This symposium was organized because of the expansion of research interest concerned with defining the involvement of proteinases and proteinase inhibitors in a variety of biological systems. It is noted that this is a broad field to be covered, and this book is an overview of individual areas of investigation that are relevant to cutaneous physiology and pathophysiology. The topics covered include basic items such as fundamental studies on localization of proteinases and inhibitors in normal skin, the physiological role of plasma proteinase inhibitors, and articles on low-molecularweight proteinase inhibitors present in microorganisms and skin.
