Abstract

University of Barcelona physicians studied the effect of low dose naltrexone (LDN) on 14 patients with Hailey-Hailey disease (HDD), also known as benign chronic pemphigus. The authors suggest that future studies be done to determine if certain genetic profiles are associated with favorable responses to LDN.
