Report Summarizes Enzyme Inhibitors Study Findings from Keio University (Nagashima-Type Palmoplantar Keratosis: A Common Asian Type Caused by SERPINB7 Protease Inhibitor Deficiency)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at China Weekly News -- A new study on Biotechnology is now available. According to news reporting out of Tokyo, Japan, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "Nagashima-type palmoplantar keratosis (NPPK) is an autosomal recessive diffuse non-epidermolytic palmoplantar keratosis caused by mutations in SERPINB7, a member of the serine protease inhibitor superfamily."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Keio University, "Genetic studies suggest that NPPK is the most common palmoplantar keratosis in Japan, and probably Asia, but one that is extremely rare in Western countries."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In this issue, Yin et al. report a founder effect of a SERPINB7 mutation in Chinese populations."
