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.
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 ...
You will need to take pregnancy tests regularly during your treatment with acitretin and for at least 3 years after taking acitretin. Acitretin is used to treat severe psoriasis (abnormal growth of skin cells that causes red, thickened, or scaly skin). This does not mean that acitretin will not work for you, but tell your doctor if this happens. Tell your doctor if you drink large amounts of alcohol; if you have diabetes or high blood sugar, spinal problems, depression, or stroke or mini-stroke; or if you have or have ever had joint, bone, or heart disease. Your doctor will monitor you more carefully and may need to give you a lower dose of methotrexate or stop your treatment with methotrexate. Tell your doctor if you drink or have ever drunk large amounts of alcohol or if you have or have ever had liver disease. If you are taking methotrexate to treat cancer, you may develop certain complications that may be serious or life-threatening as methotrexate works to destroy the cancer cells. ...

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 ...

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..

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 ...

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 ...

  • If you plan to use oral contraceptives (birth control pills) while taking acitretin, tell your doctor the name of the pill you will use. (medlineplus.gov)
  • Acitretin interferes with the action of microdosed progestin ('minipill') oral contraceptives. (medlineplus.gov)
  • The trials investigates the changes of cerebral spinal fluid APPSα levels under oral therapy with acitretin 30mg daily in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.The present study aims to demonstrate an enhancement of the α-secretase activity by acitretin as measured by increased CSF APPSα levels in human AD. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Thus acitretin may enhance the oral pharmacokinetics of cyclosporine. (ejmed.org)
  • Serum levels of IL-17 and IL-22 are reduced by etanercept, but not by acitretin, in patients with psoriasis: a randomized-controlled trial. (druglib.com)
  • Increased lipid levels are also seen in patients with psoriasis treated with acitretin. (cdc.gov)
  • DNA was genotyped for ApoE polymorphisms using a radioactive hybridization technique in cohorts of patients with psoriasis, including patients with chronic plaque psoriasis (CPP, n = 212), guttate psoriasis (GP, n = 94), palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP, n = 101), controls (n = 137), acitretin responders (n =106) and acitretin nonresponders (n = 84). (cdc.gov)
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that etanercept is more effective than acitretin in the treatment of psoriasis and that it is able to affect Th17 system. (druglib.com)
  • Do not consume foods, drinks, or prescription or nonprescription medications that contain alcohol while taking acitretin and for 2 months after treatment. (medlineplus.gov)
