The topic of my dissertation is "Assessment of the influence of normobaric hyperoxia on the psoriasis course and patients well-being".

My research focuses on broadening the knowledge about the influence of normobaric hyperoxia (HBOT) on the skin condition and well-being of patients with different dermatological conditions e.g. psoriasis. I assess the effect of therapy on the change of disease severity indices, patient well-being indicators, as well as change in the concentration of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Historically, the use of hyperoxia has been associated with the occurrence of local and general side effects, including lung damage, resorptive atelectasis, increased production of free oxygen radicals, vasoconstriction, or altered cellular metabolism. However, recent scientific reports indicate the potential therapeutic role of increased oxygen concentrations in normobaric conditions. Several studies have shown that hyperoxia improves neurological outcomes in ischemic strokes and reduces the inflammatory response in sepsis or ischemia-reperfusion conditions. It has been proven that normobaric hyperoxia may decrease the concentration of interleukin-6, interleukin-1B, and tumor necrosis factor, which are involved in the processes of keratinocyte hyperstimulation. By reduction of pro-inflammatory cytokines that influence keratinocyte hyperstimulation, HBOT may contribute to the improvement of psoriasis. So far, however, no studies have been conducted under the conditions of normobaric hyperoxia among patients with dermatological diseases.
