  • Trichodysplasia spinulosa (also known by many other names, including viral-associated trichodysplasia spinulosa, viral-associated trichodysplasia, pilomatrix dysplasia and ciclosporin-induced folliculodystrophy, although the last is a misnomer) is a rare cutaneous condition that has been described almost exclusively in immunocompromised patients, usually organ transplant recipients, on regimens of immunosuppressive drugs.

  • psoriasis
  • You should not be treated with PUVA, UVB, or medications that suppress the immune system while you are taking cyclosporine (modified) to treat psoriasis. (empowher.com)
  • Cyclosporine (modified) is also used to treat psoriasis (a skin disease in which red, scaly patches form on some areas of the body) in certain patients who have not been helped by other treatments. (empowher.com)
  • In 2009, Dr. Debeeka Hazarika, president of the North East States branch of the Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists (IADVL), published an article titled "Generalized pustular psoriasis of pregnancy successfully treated with cyclosporine" in Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol.

  • Clinical
  • Unfortunately, the apparent success of aerosolized ciclosporin in animal studies and these early clinical studies was not duplicated in a subsequent randomized, placebo-controlled trial of aerosolized ciclosporin that was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • Ciclosporin has also been used in people with acute severe ulcerative colitis and hives that do not respond to treatment with steroids . (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Ciclosporin has also been used to help treat people with acute severe ulcerative colitis and autoimmune urticaria that do not respond to treatment with steroids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ciclosporin has been touted as a therapeutic option in moderate to severe asthmatic patients as a corticosteroid sparing agent. (wikipedia.org)
  • dose
  • Subsequent trials using lower doses of cyclosporine showed that these problems were dose related, although there was considerable variability in the incidence of AKI in various centers. (uptodate.com)
  • Experimental support for this hypothesis is derived from a study examining the effect of raising the cyclosporine dose in eight pairs of stable, unrelated renal transplant recipients who had received a cadaver kidney from the same donor [ 12 ]. (uptodate.com)
  • However, elderly patients are more likely to have high blood pressure or age-related kidney, liver, or heart problems, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose for patients receiving cyclosporine. (mayoclinic.org)
  • 10 If you are taking cyclosporine and wish to use peppermint oil as well, notify your physician in advance, so that your blood levels of cyclosporine can be monitored and your dose adjusted if necessary. (portsmouthhospital.com)
  • injection
  • Cyclosporine injection is given together with a steroid medicine to prevent the body from rejecting a transplanted organ (e.g., kidney, liver, or heart). (drugs.com)
  • Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of cyclosporine injection in the elderly. (drugs.com)
  • renal
  • Studies have demonstrated that cyclosporine causes vasoconstriction of the afferent and efferent glomerular arterioles [ 7 ] and reductions in renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). (uptodate.com)
  • There may also be an intrinsic renal susceptibility to cyclosporine-induced renal vasoconstriction. (uptodate.com)
  • Use of ciclosporin in post renal transplantation is associated with hyperuricemia and, in some cases, gout. (wikipedia.org)
  • organ
  • Cyclosporine is used together with other medicines to prevent the body from rejecting a transplanted organ (eg, kidney, liver, or heart). (mayoclinic.org)
  • Cyclosporine works by suppressing the immune system to prevent the white blood cells from trying to get rid of the transplanted organ. (mayoclinic.org)
  • Appropriate studies on the relationship of age to the effects of cyclosporine have not been performed in children receiving organ transplants. (mayoclinic.org)
  • doses
  • Cyclosporine should be given in two separate doses each day. (peacehealth.org)
  • In addition to biomarkers inhaled ciclosporin has been shown to inhibit airway hyperresponsiveness in rodent models and appears to have been well tolerated in volunteers and mild asthmatic patients receiving the drug in single and multiple doses via pMDI. (wikipedia.org)
  • prevent
  • The surprising finding that aerosolized ciclosporin may prevent or delay development of this insidious condition has led to renewed interest with aerosolized ciclosporin formulations and one early stage trial involving a dry powder inhaler is recruiting while another phase III trial involving nebulized ciclosporin in propylene glycol is underway. (wikipedia.org)
  • medicines
  • Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to cyclosporine or any other medicines. (drugs.com)
  • When you are receiving cyclosporine, it is especially important that your healthcare professional know if you are taking any of the medicines listed below. (drugs.com)
  • Using cyclosporine with any of the following medicines is not recommended. (drugs.com)
  • Using cyclosporine with any of the following medicines is usually not recommended, but may be required in some cases. (drugs.com)
  • lower
  • Cyclosporine can lower blood cells that help your body fight infections, or cause your body to produce too much of a certain type of white blood cells. (peacehealth.org)
