Filaggrins are filament-associated proteins which bind to keratin fibers in epithelial cells. which is normally found in large quantities in the outermost layers of the skin. This protein is essential for skin barrier function, helping to form a protective layer at the surface of the skin that keeps water in and keeps foreign organisms out.
Drugs or other treatments aimed at the filaggrin gene are still some years away but researches in this direction give hope to those with these distressing conditions. Hope this study will contribute for the right direction.
