Update on psoriasis therapy: a perspective from the USA. (1/54)

Because physicians from different nations frequently acquire the use of a new medication at different times, the international exchange of experiences with the new medication is valuable in maximizing its efficacy worldwide. In recent years, many new therapeutic agents have been approved for treating psoriasis in the United States. These include the topical agent calcipotriol and the systemic agents acitretin and cyclosporine. In addition to new agents, a new therapeutic paradigm, sequential therapy, has been introduced recently. It is the hope of the authors that by sharing this paradigm and experiences with these agents in the United States, dermatologists in Japan may gain further insight into optimizing the use of these agents in the treatment of psoriasis.  (+info)

Lichen planus. (2/54)

Lichen planus is an inflammatory mucocutaneous condition with characteristic violaceous polygonal flat-topped papules and plaques. Pruritus is often severe. Skin lesions may be disfiguring, and involvement of the oral mucosa or genital mucosa in severe cases may be debilitating. Oral lichen planus may predispose to the development of squamous cell carcinoma within lesions. Involvement of the scalp and the nails may also occur. While most cases of lichen planus are idiopathic, some may be caused by the ingestion of certain medications (e.g., gold, antimalarial agents, penicillamine, thiazide diuretics, beta blockers, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, quinidine and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors) or linked to hepatitis C virus infection. Patients with localized lichen planus are usually treated with potent topical steroids, while systemic steroids are used to treat patients with generalized lichen planus.  (+info)

Efficacy of acitretin in severe psoriasis. (3/54)

Acitretin (Soriatane, Roche Pharmaceuticals) is an aromatic retinoid, effective in the treatment of severe psoriasis. This study highlights data from two existing clinical trials to capture PASI 50 and PASI 75 responder rates which represent a common metric used in current psoriasis clinical trials. A review of pharmacokinetics, safety and a discussion of relapse rate establish acitretin as an efficacious, convenient, oral treatment for initial and maintenance therapy of severe psoriasis.  (+info)

The distribution of cis- and trans-acitretin in human epidermis. (5/54)

The concentrations of trans-acitretin and its principal metabolite, cis-acitretin, were measured by h.p.l.c. after single and multiple dosing (50 mg orally for 13 days) in plasma, blister fluid and epidermal samples from four healthy male volunteers. Within-day epidermal concentrations of trans-acitretin exceeded those of the cis-form which were at the limit of assay sensitivity. No accumulation of trans-acitretin was observed in plasma or blister fluid but AUC values for the drug in blister roof cells tended to be higher after multiple dosing.  (+info)

Increasing the intracellular availability of all-trans retinoic acid in neuroblastoma cells. (6/54)

Recent data indicate that isomerisation to all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) is the key mechanism underlying the favourable clinical properties of 13-cis retinoic acid (13cisRA) in the treatment of neuroblastoma. Retinoic acid (RA) metabolism is thought to contribute to resistance, and strategies to modulate this may increase the clinical efficacy of 13cisRA. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that retinoids, such as acitretin, which bind preferentially to cellular retinoic acid binding proteins (CRABPs), or specific inhibitors of the RA hydroxylase CYP26, such as R116010, can increase the intracellular availability of ATRA. Incubation of SH-SY5Y cells with acitretin (50 microM) or R116010 (1 or 10 microM) in combination with either 10 microM ATRA or 13cisRA induced a selective increase in intracellular levels of ATRA, while 13cisRA levels were unaffected. CRABP was induced in SH-SY5Y cells in response to RA. In contrast, acitretin had no significant effect on intracellular retinoid concentrations in those neuroblastoma cell lines that showed little or no induction of CRABP after RA treatment. Both ATRA and 13cisRA dramatically induced the expression of CYP26A1 in SH-SY5Y cells, and treatment with R116010, but not acitretin, potentiated the RA-induced expression of a reporter gene and CYP26A1. The response of neuroblastoma cells to R116010 was consistent with inhibition of CYP26, indicating that inhibition of RA metabolism may further optimise retinoid treatment in neuroblastoma.  (+info)

Effects of retinoid therapy on insulin sensitivity, lipid profile and circulating adipocytokines. (7/54)

OBJECTIVE: In vitro and in vivo models indicate that all-trans retinoic acids influence glucose and lipid metabolism. We aimed to evaluate the effects of chronic treatment with acitretin, an all-trans retinoic acid, on glucose metabolism, lipid profile and adiponectin and resistin levels. DESIGN: Ten normoglycemic, normolipemic patients affected with psoriasis vulgaris were studied before and after 1 and 3 months of oral treatment with 35 microg of acitretin. METHODS: Glucose metabolism, lipid profile, and adiponectin and resistin levels were evaluated in basal conditions and after acitretin treatment. Ten healthy subjects matched for age, body mass index (BMI) and insulin sensitivity were studied as controls. RESULTS: One-month acitretin treatment reduced psoriasis activity, insulin sensitivity, evaluated as QUICKI values (0.364 +/- 0.034 versus 0.329 +/- 0.051; P < 0.05) and HOMA-IR index (1.53 +/- 0.73 versus 2.59 +/- 1.41; P < 0.05), and high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol levels (45.2 +/- 11.7 versus 39.4 +/- 10.4 mg/dl; P = 0.01). The impairment in glucose and lipid homeostasis was transient and not associated to BMI variations. Adiponectin levels did not change during the treatment, while resistin levels, which were higher in untreated patients than in controls (9.4 +/- 4.4 versus 6.2 +/- 2.1 ng/ml; P = 0.05), fell within the normal range after 1 and 3 months of therapy. The normalization of resistin levels occurred without significant changes in circulating tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) levels, which persisted elevated throughout the treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with a low dose of acitretin induced a mild, transient reduction of insulin sensitivity and HDL-cholesterol levels that was not related to modifications of adiponectin, resistin and TNFalpha levels. Although the role of resistin in humans remains elusive, the levels of this adipocytokine seem to be affected, at least in part, by retinoids.  (+info)

Interaction between genetic control of vascular endothelial growth factor production and retinoid responsiveness in psoriasis. (8/54)

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) promotes angiogenesis, and elevated levels are found in plaques of psoriasis. Two VEGF polymorphisms, +405 and -460, are associated with early-onset psoriasis and are close to the functional activator protein-1 site (+419) through which retinoids, an established systemic therapy for psoriasis, can block production of VEGF. We report that peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and epidermal keratinocytes (KC) from patients with psoriasis demonstrate differential, genotype-dependent, regulation of VEGF. For PBMCs, VEGF genotype distinguishes two groups of patients with psoriasis - "high and low VEGF producers" (P < 0.001). In contrast, KC production of VEGF is not genotype dependent. However, the effects of all-trans retinoic acid (RA) on cellular expression of VEGF are determined by both cell type and genotype. RA inhibits KC production of VEGF in a genotype-dependent manner (P < 0.005) whereas RA stimulates PBMCs production irrespective of VEGF genotype (P < 0.001). We also report that the -460 VEGF polymorphism appears to have a clinical pharmacogenetic role in predicting response or non-response of psoriasis to acitretin (P = 0.01). In future, determination of VEGF gene polymorphisms and thus individual patient VEGF "signatures" may be used as a prognostic factor for psoriasis susceptibility/severity and as a means for optimizing treatment response.  (+info)

Angioedema may be caused by nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, angiotensin- converting enzyme inhibitors, radiocontrast media, antibiotics, sea food etc. It can involve an allergic (IgE-mediated) or non-allergic hypersensitivity reaction, both with a similar clinical presentation. While angioedema due to isotretionin has been described previously, this is the first description of angiodema due to acitretin. We report two uncommon cases of palpebral and labial angiodema due to retinoids, by acitretin and oral isotretinoin respectively: a 48-year-old man with psoriasis and a 24-year-old woman with severe acne resistant to antibiotics and topical drugs. In both cases the reaction persisted through-out treatment with these drugs, but resolved quickly after discontinuation. Reintroduction of the drugs brought on angioedema again.
This topic reviews the treatment of psoriatic skin disease. Pregnancy is contraindicated for three years following acitretin therapy. For patients in whom lesions recur quickly, topical corticosteroids can be applied intermittently (such as on weekends only) to maintain improvement. Soriatane is an oral retinoid, which is a synthetic form of vitamin A. Acitretin is the only oral retinoid approved by the FDA specifically for treating psoriasis. After eight to 16 weeks of treatment, the skin lesions usually will improve. Soriatane is indicated for use in adults with severe plaque, guttate, pustular, erythrodermic, or palmoplantar psoriasis. They must use two effective forms of birth control at least one month before beginning treatment, while on the drug and for three years after stopping treatment. These are known as geographic plaques because the skin lesions resemble maps. Guttate psoriasis can also develop in patients who have already had other forms of psoriasis, most often in people treated ...
BACKGROUND: Etanercept, a soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor, and acitretin have been shown to be effective in treating psoriasis. Acitretin is widely used in Korea. However, the combination of etanercept plus acitretin has not been evaluated among Korean patients with psoriasis. The objective of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of combination therapy with etanercept and acitretin in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. METHODS: Sixty patients with psoriasis were randomized to receive etanercept 50 mg twice weekly (BIW) for 12 weeks followed by etanercept 25 mg BIW for 12 weeks (ETN-ETN); etanercept 25 mg BIW plus acitretin 10 mg twice daily (BID) for 24 weeks (ETN-ACT); or acitretin 10 mg BID for 24 weeks (ACT ...

Etretinate (trade name Tegison) is a medication developed by Hoffmann-La Roche that was approved by the FDA in 1986 to treat severe psoriasis. It is a second-generation retinoid. It was subsequently removed from the Canadian market in 1996 and the United States market in 1998 due to the high risk of birth defects. It remains on the market in Japan as Tigason. Etretinate is a highly lipophilic, aromatic retinoid. It is stored and released from adipose tissue, so its effects can continue long after dosage stops. It is detectable in the plasma for up to three years following therapy. Etretinate has a low therapeutic index and a long elimination half-life (t1/2) of 120 days, which make dosing difficult. Etretinate has been replaced by acitretin, the free acid (without the ethyl ester). While acitretin is less lipophilic and has a half-life of only 50 hours, it is partly metabolized to etretinate in the body, so that it is still a long-acting teratogen and pregnancy is prohibited for two years after ...
Many of the traditional drugs used to treat psoriasis impact the entire immune system. A variety of drugs, including biologics, are available for treatment of moderate to severe psoriasis. When biologic agents are stopped, psoriasis can return (relapse) and often requires the biologic to be restarted and continued. Some of the medicines mentioned here might not be available in all countries. Topical treatments are usually the first kind of medicine that doctors use to treat psoriasis. Topical Steroid Cream, Lotion or Gel refer to cortisone-type drugs, not the body-building steroids. Biologics are a new class of systemic treatments for moderate to severe psoriasis. Systemic treatments for psoriasis may be taken by mouth or injection. Oral retinoids used for psoriasis include acitretin (Soriatane) and isotretinoin (Accutane). These are discussed in a separate leaflet (Topical treatments for psoriasis). Acitretin (trade name Neotigason) is one of a group of drugs known as retinoids, which are ...

Interferon-alpha combined with retinoid or PUVA is used for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Anti-IFN-alpha antibodies (IFN ab) occur regularly during IFN-alpha treatment. We investigated the incidence of neutralizing and binding IFN ab and analysed their relationship with clinical and immunological parameters. A group of 17 CTCL patients were treated with IFN alpha-2a three times weekly subcutaneously at a dose of 3 Mill. I.U. combined either with retinoid (acitretin, Neotigason; 0.5 mg/kg bodyweight) daily or with 5-methoxypsoralen (1.2 mg/kg bodyweight) plus UVA radiation three times weekly. Prior to and during treatment we monitored stage, skin involvement by a tumour burden index, serum levels of beta 2-microglobulin, neopterin, binding and neutralizing IFN ab, Interleukin-6 (IL-6), soluble IL-2 receptors (sIL-2r) and the CD4/CD8 ratio of peripheral blood mononuclear cells. We observed two complete, two partial and six minor responses, four patients with stable disease and three ...
In treating psoriasis, many factors must be taken into account, including the extent of involvement, areas of involvement, the patients lifestyle, and other health problems and concomitant medications.. In sunny climates, sun exposure can be added to the therapeutic regimen.. It is essential to identify alternative treatment methods for patients receiving medications such as lithium, which are known to exacerbate psoriasis. In patients who have had multiple skin cancers, PUVA and cyclosporine should be avoided. These treatments increase the tendency to develop skin cancers. The possibility of using acitretin, which suppresses the development of skin cancers, should be considered for these patients.. One particularly important factor when selecting patients treatment is the affected body surface area. In individuals with less than 5% body surface area involvement, initially topical therapy is usually applied, unless the patient has previously failed topical therapy or the psoriasis is ...
Psoriasis is a common disease, which has a considerable impact on patients and the health care system. Treatment approaches to the disease may be various because some issues are not definitely addressed. Moreover, the therapeutic paradigms are continuously changing because of the recent approval of new treatments for psoriasis such as interleukin (IL)-17 inhibitors and apremilast. In this review, the factors influencing psoriasis severity, the indications for systemic treatments, the overall parameters to be considered in the treatment choice, life style interventions, and the recommendations for the use, screening, and monitoring of systemic therapies available including acitretin, cyclosporine, methotrexate, apremilast, adalimumab, etanercept, infliximab, secukinumab, ixekizumab, and ustekinumab are discussed ...
In severe, recalcitrant scalp psoriasis, it may be necessary to consider systemic therapy with acitretin or methotrexate8 combined with topical corticosteroids or vitamin D3 preparations.7 Unfortunately, hair acts as an ultraviolet shield; hence for scalp psoriasis, PUVA therapy is only useful in patients who are significantly bald.8 Grenz ray (soft x-rays) therapy has been found to be effective,13 but this form of therapy is considered to have unacceptable risks and is no longer used in most countries.. Treatment Regimes. When scaling is thick and adherent, it must be removed by overnight application of a keratolytic. Dr. Kenneth Arndt uses a phenol/saline lotion (P&S liquid).11 Professor Gollnick uses salicylic acid (up to 15%) oil formulations, applied for 12-24 hours under occlusion.7 Professor Kragballe prescribes a daily application of 5% tar and 5% salicylic acid in petrolatum.14 The scalp should be shampooed daily. Once the crust/scale is removed, the keratolytic can be used as necessary ...
History: Please help with an opinion on our eight year-old daughter who has had an acral dermatitis for the past 5 years. The swelling started at the cuticle and slowly moved back towards the first knuckle over the years and was associated with itching. Initially it was diagnosed as insect bites. About a year ago her fingers became more swollen and a doctor made a clinical diagnosis of fungus (no tests were done). She was treated first with vinegar soaks, then triamcinalone cream then Grifulvin 125mg/tsp. None was effective and we then saw a new dermatologist who referred us to a pediatric dermatologist who she made a diagnosis: Acrodermatitis Continua of Hallopeau. She did a fungal culture which grew out a soil contaminant that was not felt to be significant. Our daughter is presently on clobetasol ointment. The nail looks a bit better but not the skin. Treatment discussions so far have included Thalidomide, Psoralen plus UVA or UVB, Acitretin, Methotrexate and others. We know that these ...

Adaptor protein complex 1 (AP-1) is an evolutionary conserved heterotetramer that promotes vesicular trafficking between the trans-Golgi network and the endosomes. The knockout of most murine AP-1 complex subunits is embryonically lethal, so the identification of human disease-associated alleles has the unique potential to deliver insights into gene function. Here, we report two founder mutations (c.11T,G [p.Phe4Cys] and c.97C,T [p.Arg33Trp]) in AP1S3, the gene encoding AP-1 complex subunit σ1C, in 15 unrelated individuals with a severe autoinflammatory skin disorder known as pustular psoriasis. Because the variants are predicted to destabilize the 3D structure of the AP-1 complex, we generated AP1S3-knockdown cell lines to investigate the consequences of AP-1 deficiency in skin keratinocytes. We found that AP1S3 silencing disrupted the endosomal translocation of the innate pattern-recognition receptor TLR-3 (Toll-like receptor 3) and resulted in a marked inhibition of downstream signaling. ...
Over a period of time, lymphocytes may lose their predilection for the epidermis, and may target the dermis, lymph nodes and other organs, converting MF into a more aggressive and resistant leukemia. At times, MF can undergo large cell transformation (anaplastic cells or immunoblasts) associated with a worse prognosis.. Romedepsis and vorinostat are potent inhibitors of the CYP enzyme system and can lead to serious toxicities of medications which are metabolized by similar CYP enzymes..

Erythrodermic psoriasis (EP) is the most severe form of psoriasis. Although it may develop de novo, it is most commonly associated with long-standing, active disease. EP develops acutely or following a subacute or chronic course. The erythrodermic phase is dominated by generalized erythema and scaling that can be accompanied by an inability to maintain homeostatic functions, a potentially life-threatening complication. Management of EP is difficult and medication should be administered not only to treat psoriasis but also to treat the erythrodermic syndrome and extracutaneous complications. The therapies that are available to treat EP include traditional systemic drugs (such as methotrexate, acitretin, and cyclosporine) and the biological agents (such as etanercept, infliximab, adalimumab, and ustekinumab), which can be used as monotherapy or as part of combined therapy. Clinical experience of treating these disorders with biological agents is limited. As there is a lack of high-quality ...

Having dealt with what is pustular psoriasis? There are different types of pustular psoriasis and accompanying psoriasis cure but first the different types include:. Palmer-Plantar Pustulosis (PPP). This is sometimes called palmoplantar psoriasis. This is usually a localised form of pustular psoriasis that acts on the palms of the hands hence the name. But they are also found on the soles of the feet. This type of pustular psoriasis is more common with people between the ages of 20 and 60 years old and a lot more in people that smoke.. In PPP, when the pustules do show up, they are very large and about 5mm in diameter on the hands and feet such as the thumbs and the sides of the heels. Gradually, the pustules dry up, turn brown and then gradually fade away or peel off. This type is usually cyclical, when they old fade; new ones come up to replace them. Sometimes the skin do crack open in these areas and they are very painful leading to some form of loss of functionality especially in the ...

Photophobia is a symptom of abnormal intolerance to visual perception of light. As a medical symptom, photophobia is not a morbid fear or phobia, but an experience of discomfort or pain to the eyes due to light exposure or by presence of actual physical sensitivity of the eyes, though the term is sometimes additionally applied to abnormal or irrational fear of light such as heliophobia. The term photophobia comes from the Greek φῶς (phōs), meaning "light", and φόβος (phóbos), meaning "fear". Photophobia is a common symptom of visual snow. Patients may develop photophobia as a result of several different medical conditions, related to the eye or the nervous system. Photophobia can be caused by an increased response to light starting at any step in the visual system, such as: Too much light entering the eye. Too much light can enter the eye if it is damaged, such as with corneal abrasion and retinal damage, or if its pupil(s) is unable to normally constrict (seen with damage to the ...

Many therapies are available to manage AK, including destructive therapies (e.g., cryotherapy, surgical curettage), resurfacing techniques (e.g., dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, chemical peels), topical therapies (e.g., 5-fluorouracil, imiquimod, diclofenac gel, retinoids), and photodynamic therapy (PDT).[21] The efficacy of these treatments in reducing AK is well established and beyond the scope of this article; however, their prophylactic nature in preventing NMSC is less widely studied. The following review of clinical studies examines less common approaches to AK treatment and their effects on preventing NMSC over time.. Oral retinoids. Data on potential chemopreventive effects of oral retinoids (e.g., isotretinoin, etretinate, acitretin) are available.

Rarely, a skin biopsy or scraping may be needed to exclude other disorders and to confirm the diagnosis. 15. Currently there is no cure for psoriasis and treatment is directed at decreasing signs and symptoms and modifying the natural progression of the disease. A repertoire of topical and systemic therapies is available for the treatment of psoriasis, such as vitamin D3 analogues, corticosteroids, coal tar, dithranol, phototherapy, methotrexate, cyclosporine, systemic retinoids and biologics. Typically, topical agents are used for mild disease, phototherapy for moderate disease and systemic agents for severe disease. 16.

Thresholds for photophobia (light-induced discomfort) were determined at wavelengths from 440 to 640 nm for three subjects. Photophobia was assessed by means of electromyography, which was used to measure subjects level of squinting. After correction for absorption by macular pigment and the ocular media, subjects functions displayed a trend of increasing sensitivity with decreasing wavelength. We propose that the corrected function is indicative of increased sensitivity to potential retinal damage by short-wavelength light. It is therefore suggested that photophobia serves a function of biological protection. Results also suggest that photophobia is significantly mitigated by macular pigment in the short wavelengths.. © 2003 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...
When we asked Swedish patients in qualitative interviews what AHC meant to them, both female and male patients expressed feelings of being disempowered and devalued. The core category in the female sample was a feeling of being nullified and in the male sample mentally pinioned.15 ,16 However, when staff was asked the same question (in the preintervention study), the answers were quite different. They explained theoretically what AHC could be, for example, transgression of ethical principles, but they were also occupied with explanations and justifications as to why AHC occurred, and the core category was ethical lapses. In accordance with their ambiguity and inability to handle AHC, it was treated with silence and as a taboo.17 Moreover, staffs awareness of AHC was dependent on their possibilities to act; low awareness was seen when there were few possibilities to act.18. High prevalence of AHC, creating long-lasting suffering among patients and little awareness about the problem among ...
In this large, nationwide study of contemporary Swedish patients with RA, we found evidence of substantial differences in baseline characteristics among patients assigned to different bDMARDs. Many predictors of treatment assignment were also predictors of adverse treatment outcomes, and in quantifying the magnitude of this, we showed that a direct comparison across therapies would not give accurate estimates of the treatments relative effect, but would be biased in favour of TNFi.. Those not starting standard TNFi therapy were older, had lower socioeconomic status and had a higher burden of other diseases. There was similar, although slighter, channelling at switch from a first ever TNFi, where a higher RA disease activity was also predictive of receiving a non-TNFi. While there were limited differences between those starting individual TNFi, channelling to and between non-TNFi bDMARD was substantial. Rituximab initiators were oldest, dominantly RF-positive and had the highest burden of ...
rs283413, also known as c.232G,T, p.Gly78Ter, G78stop and Gly78X, encodes a rare variant of the ADH1C gene that leads to a truncated alcohol dehydrogenase protein. These types of proteins are involved in detoxification and may be linked to neurodegenerative diseases. The rs283413(G) allele is the more common, encoding the amino acid glycine (Gly); the quite rare rs283413(T) allele encodes the variant stop codon (X). Originally identified in three Swedish patients with Parkinsons disease (PD), a study of ~1000 PD patients vs. ~1000 controls indicated an odds ratio for the risk allele of 3.25 (CI:1.31-8.05). [This risk is effectively for heterozygotes, since the risk allele is so rare that no homozygotes for it were observed.] In a study of 40 index cases, 10% were found to harbor the rs283413(T) risk allele.

DISCUSSION Generalized pustulous psoriasis (GPP) is rare in children. It can occur in infancy, at any age, but it is more common in the first year of life. 4 Different from psoriasis in adult GPP, in children, it has a higher prevalence in the male sex in a proportion of 3:2 5. Epidemiological and immunogenetic data have shown hereditary predisposition for psoriasis. Participation of HLA genes has been studied being greater the co-relation found with the HLA-Cw6. 6 As for this report the patient presented family history of similar lesions, which reinforces the important role of heredity in psosriasis 4 . Possible differential diagnoses include staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome, Reters syndrome, generalized candidiasis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, pustular miliaria and acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis. 3,7 Clinical data presented associated with typical PPG histopathology confirmed the diagnosis.

THURSDAY, April 6, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Severe psoriasis is much more common in men than women, a new study from Sweden reports.. Researchers reviewed data from more than 5,400 people in Sweden with the common skin disease. The study found that women had a significantly lower rate of severe psoriasis than men. This was true for all age groups and for all parts of the body except the head, where severity scores were about the same for both sexes.. The discovery that mens psoriasis is often more serious helps explain a gender gap, with more men than women seeking psoriasis treatment, said study senior author Marcus Schmitt-Egenolf. He is a researcher at Umea Universitys Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine.. "These findings should motivate a gender perspective in the management of severe psoriasis and its comorbidities, such as cardiovascular and metabolic disease," Schmitt-Egenolf said in a university news release..

For data collection we used the NorVold Abuse Questionnaire, which has been validated in a female sample and in the present study. The lifetime prevalences were EA = 12.8%, PA = 45.7%, SA = 3.8%, and AHC = 8.1%. Current suffering from abuse among participants was 1% to 9%. The women reported higher rates than men of current suffering from all kinds of abuse and more severe forms of abuse, such as life-threatening PA. Health care staff should be aware of the ...
For example, some of the scientific omissions by the guest experts regarding Iodine-131 include:. 1. They dont mention the massive use of I-131 in medical applications involving the thyroid, nor of the many epidemiology studies done on tens of thousands of such patients showing no harm to the patients.. 2. In fact according to Zbigniew Jaworowski (http://tinyurl.com/3bvmn8x) and (http://tinyurl.com/3dhmojw) and Lars Erik Holm, these thousands of thyroid patients medically exposed to I-131, showed exactly the opposite: Real reductions in the rates of thyroid cancers. There was a 38% reduction among the thousands of Swedish patients, and a 17% reduction in the English study. This shows that there were fewer thyroid cancers among the I-131 patients than among the unirradiated control groups. Given the current public alarm over trace amounts of I-131 from Japan, Educated guests should be providing this valuable context from their own profession.. 3. They dont mention the UN findings of the health ...

An 8-year-old girl with a 4-year history of chronic intermittent eruption of a pustular rash on her torso presented for evaluation in the dermatology clinic with an ongoing flare. The current rash had persisted despite the application of topical fluocinonide, topical clobetasol, a selenium sulfide wash, and oral cephalexin.. Physical Examination. Laboratory test findings were significant for a neutrophilic leukocytosis (14,200 white blood cells/µL). Histologic review of a punch biopsy specimen demonstrated an epidermal and superficial perivascular neutrophilic infiltrate with overlying serum crust. Results of Grocott methenamine silver and periodic acid-Schiff stains were unremarkable. The results of further evaluation with a basic metabolic panel, serologic testing for hepatitis B, and purified protein derivative skin testing for tuberculosis were normal or negative. Based on her presentation and laboratory test results, the patient received a diagnosis of pustular psoriasis (Figures 1 and ...
BACKGROUND: An association between HCV infection and lichen planus is uncertain because the prevalence of HCV infection in patients with lichen planus varies considerably from one geographic area to another. The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of anti-HCV antibodies and its association with various clinical types of lichen planus in Mekkah, Saudi Arabia. METHODS: A total of 114 cases of lichen planus were selected for the study. These were divided into four categories, including patients with skin lesions, skin and oral lesions, and oral or genital lesions alone. The sera of these patients were tested for HCV antibodies by means of a third-generation ELISA and serum levels of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) were simultaneously determined. A group of 65 volunteers served as a control group. RESULTS: Of the 114 patients with lichen planus, 30 had HCV antibodies (26.3%). In the 65 control group subjects anti-HCV antibodies were observed in 3
A 44-year-old man who was previously diagnosed with actinic cheilitis was prescribed imiquimod cream 5%, which resulted in thick hemorrhagic crusting of the lower lip after 4 applications. He subsequently noted the development of lichen planus lesions on his arms and legs for the first time in 15 years following imiquimod use. On follow-up he also was noted to have characteristic Wickham striae on his lower lip. Lichen planus is an autoimmune inflammatory condition in which autoreactive T lymphocytes attack keratinocytes. The mechanism of action for imiquimod is upregulation of IFN-alpha and IFN-beta. Treatment with clobetasol cream 0.05% led to resolution of his lichen planus lesions.
