Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).

Is prior authorization of topical tretinoin for acne cost effective? (1/415)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether prior authorization of topical tretinoin for acne is in the best interest of health insurers and, if so, to determine the optimal prior authorization age for topical tretinoin. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective, cross-sectional study of data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was performed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a sensitivity analysis using published data on the age distribution for topical tretinoin prescriptions for acne and nonacne indications to estimate the cost of topical tretinoin and the cost of performing prior authorizations as a function of the prior authorization age. RESULTS: A prior authorization age of 25 for topical tretinoin is not cost effective for health insurers. If prior authorization is required, an age threshold of 35 or older is most cost effective. The total cost of topical tretinoin (the sum of the drug costs plus the prior authorization costs) changes little with changes in the prior authorization age; if the prior authorization age is set too low, total costs increase (because the number of prior authorizations increase). CONCLUSIONS: Prior authorization for topical tretinoin is of no great benefit to insurers. As the prior authorization age decreases, the cost of requiring prior authorization increases. Eliminating prior authorization altogether would result in at most a small increase in costs and would be balanced by the benefits to both patients and physicians.  (+info)

Acne: a review of immunologic and microbiologic factors. (2/415)

Acne vulgaris is a self-limiting skin disorder seen primarily in adolescents, whose aetiology appears to be multifactorial. The four main aetiological factors are hypercornification of the pilosebaceous duct, increased sebum production, colonization with Propionibacterium acnes, and subsequently the production of inflammation. Considerable investigation has addressed the immunologic reaction to extracellular products produced by the acne-causing organism, P acnes. The immunologic response involves both humoral and cell-mediated pathways. Further research should clarify the role of complement, cytotoxins, and neutrophils in this acne-forming response.  (+info)

Chloracne, goiter, arthritis, and anemia after polychlorinated biphenyl poisoning: 14-year follow-Up of the Taiwan Yucheng cohort. (3/415)

In 1979, a mass poisoning involving 2,000 people occurred in central Taiwan from ingestion of cooking oil contaminated by polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs). We studied the prevalence of medical conditions in the exposed individuals and in a neighborhood control group. Starting with a registry of the exposed individuals from 1983, we updated the addresses of exposed individuals and identified a control group matched for age, sex, and neighborhood in 1979. In 1993, individuals 30 years of age or older were interviewed by telephone. We obtained usable information from 795 exposed subjects and 693 control subjects. Lifetime prevalence of chloracne, abnormal nails, hyperkeratosis, skin allergy, goiter, headache, gum pigmentation, and broken teeth were observed more frequently in the PCB/PCDF-exposed men and women. The exposed women reported anemia 2. 3 times more frequently than controls. The exposed men reported arthritis and herniated intervertebral disks 4.1 and 2.9 times, respectively, more frequently than controls. There was no difference in reported prevalences of other medical conditions. We conclude that Taiwanese people exposed to high levels of PCBs and PCDFs reported more frequent medical problems, including skin diseases, goiter, anemia, and joint and spine diseases.  (+info)

Topical therapy for acne. (4/415)

Acne is a common problem in adolescents and young adults. The disorder is caused by abnormal desquamation of follicular epithelium that results in obstruction of the pilosebaceous canal. This obstruction leads to the formation of comedones, which can become inflamed because of overgrowth of Propionibacterium acnes. Topical retinoids such as tretinoin or adapalene are effective in many patients with comedonal acne. Patients with inflammatory lesions benefit from treatment with benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid or topical antibiotics. Frequently, the use of comedonal and antibacterial agents is required.  (+info)

Accutane-exposed pregnancies--California, 1999. (5/415)

Accutane (Roche Laboratories, Nutley, New Jersey), known by the generic name "isotretinoin," is a prescription oral medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat severe, recalcitrant nodular acne. It is also a known human teratogen that can cause multiple major malformations. Embryopathy associated with the mother's exposure to isotretinoin during the first trimester of pregnancy includes craniofacial, cardiac, thymic, and central nervous system malformations . In response to FDA recommendations, the manufacturer began a pregnancy-prevention program (PPP) in 1988 that included educational materials for physicians and patients and offered women reimbursement for contraceptive counseling by a physician. The PPP coordinators asked reproductive-aged women being treated with isotretinoin to enroll voluntarily in the Boston University Accutane Survey (BUAS). The total number of reproductive-aged women taking isotretinoin in the United States is unknown; however, 454,273 women enrolled in the BUAS from 1989 to October 1999. BUAS has estimated that 38%-40% of reproductive-aged women taking isotretinoin chose to enroll in the survey (BUAS, unpublished data, 1999). Although isotretinoin is contraindicated in pregnancy and has a package label warning users to avoid pregnancy while taking it, exposed pregnancies occur. Approximately 900 pregnancies occurred among BUAS enrollees during 1989-1998 (BUAS, unpublished data, 1999). Roche Laboratories began direct-to-consumer print advertisements in 1996, added television and radio advertisements to selected cities in 1997, and expanded the campaign to the entire United States in 1998.  (+info)

Pyogenic arthritis, pyoderma gangrenosum, and acne syndrome maps to chromosome 15q. (6/415)

Pyoderma gangrenosum, cystic acne, and aseptic arthritis are clinically distinct disorders within the broad class of inflammatory diseases. Although this triad of symptoms is rarely observed in a single patient, a three-generation kindred with autosomal-dominant transmission of these three disorders has been reported as "PAPA syndrome" (MIM 604416). We report mapping of a disease locus for familial pyoderma gangrenosum-acne-arthritis to the long arm of chromosome 15 (maximum two-point LOD score, 5.83; recombination fraction [straight theta] 0 at locus D15S206). Under the assumption of complete penetrance, haplotype analysis of recombination events defined a disease interval of 10 cM, between D15S1023 and D15S979. Successful identification of a single disease locus for this syndrome suggests that these clinically distinct disorders may share a genetic etiology. These data further indicate the role of genes outside the major histocompatibility locus in inflammatory disease.  (+info)

Comedogenicity of squalene monohydroperoxide in the skin after topical application. (7/415)

The comedogenicity of squalene peroxides was examined on the rabbit ear skin after topical application of squalene-monohydroperoxide (Sq-OOH), the initial product when squalene was irradiated with UV-A. Since comedogenic products from UV-irradiated squalene were extracted with methanol solution, we isolated Sq-OOH by reverse-phased HPLC with a methanol mobile phase solvent. The degree of comedogenic reaction induced by Sq-OOH was higher than that of well-known comedogenic cosmetic ingredients. Unlike two other mono-peroxides, tert-butyl hydroperoxide and cumene-mono-hydroperoxide, Sq-OOH induced comedo-formation in the rabbit ear skin. However, the comedogenicity of reduced Sq-OOH, squalene-hydroxide (Sq-OH) and squalene itself was lower than that of Sq-OOH. These results indicate that Sq-OOH is a potent comedogenic mono-hydroperoxide chemical to rabbit skin.  (+info)

A case report of synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis syndrome presenting with spondylodiscitis. (8/415)

SAPHO syndrome stands for synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis. The common site of skeletal lesions in this syndrome is the sternocostoclavicular area. Spondylodiscitis is rarely described in published studies. In general, skin lesions develop before the onset of skeletal lesions. We report a case of SAPHO syndrome in which spondylodiscitis developed more than 1 year before the onset of pustulosis.  (+info)

Acne vulgaris may be improved by dietary factors that increase insulin sensitivity. We hypothesized that a low-glycemic index diet would improve facial acne severity and insulin sensitivity. Fifty-eight adolescent males (mean age ± standard deviation 16.5 ± 1.0 y and body mass index 23.1 ± 3.5 kg/m2) were alternately allocated to high or low glycemic index diets. Severity of inflammatory lesions on the face, insulin sensitivity (homeostasis modeling assessment of insulin resistance), androgens and insulin-like growth factor-1 and its binding proteins were assessed at baseline and at eight weeks, a period corresponding to the school term. Forty-three subjects (n = 23 low glycemic index and n = 20 high glycemic index) completed the study. Diets differed significantly in glycemic index (mean ± standard error of the mean, low glycemic index 51 ± 1 vs. high glycemic index 61 ± 2, p = 0.0002), but not in macronutrient distribution or fiber content. Facial acne improved on both diets (low glycemic index
Commonly known as acne, this is a kind of skin condition that happens when dead skin cells and skin oil clog the hair follicles. This is a very common condition affecting almost everyone during puberty. This is associated with formation of blackheads and pimples and may lead to formation of scars. It is, therefore, vital to know how these develop and the treatments for a permanent remedy.. How these develop?. Acne vulgaris is closely associated with adolescence. When a teenager reaches puberty, the body goes through a major hormonal change. Secretion of some hormones increase during this period as the body tends to mature. The rise in the hormone levels make the sebaceous glands excessively stimulated and skin pores are clogged forming acne vulgaris. These generally form on upper body areas like face, cheek, and back. Based on the condition, the acne vulgaris are termed as mild, moderate and severe. While the mild and moderate types usually do not cause scars, these are very common with severe ...
CLINICAL QUESTION: What are the most effective treatment(s) for mild, moderate, severe, and hormonally driven acne? RESULTS: Mild acne responds favorably to topical treatments such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and a low-dose retinoid. Moderate acne responds well to combination therapy comprising-topical benzoyl peroxide, antibiotics, and/or retinoids, as well as oral antibiotics in refractory cases and oral contraceptive pills for female acne patients. Severe nodulocystic acne vulgaris responds best to oral isotretinoin therapy. In female patients with moderate to severe acne, facial hair, loss of scalp hair and irregular periods, polycystic ovarian syndrome should be considered and appropriate treatment with hormonal modulation given. Adjunctive procedures can also be considered for all acne patients. IMPLEMENTATION: PITFALLS TO AVOID WHEN TREATING ACNE: treatment of acne in women of child-bearing age; familiarization of all acne treatments in order to individualize management for patients;
OBJECTIVE To use 2% tea lotion as natural plant remedy in the treatment of acne vulgaris. METHODS We conducted this study in the Department of Dermatology and Venereology in Baghdad Teaching Hospital, Iraq during the period between October 2002 and October 2004. In this single blind randomly controlled therapeutic study, we enrolled 60 patients, their ages ranged from 14-22 years. There were 35 females and 25 males. We divided the patients equally into 2 groups; we instructed group A to use freshly prepared 2% tea lotion twice daily for 2 months, while group B used a control solution. We graded the acne vulgaris as mild and moderate acne by counting the number of papules and pustules. We carried out statistical analysis by computer using t-test, f-test, and chi-square when needed. RESULTS Forty-nine patients completed the study. In group A (25 patients), we noted a significantly reduced mean lesion count of papules and pustules after 2 months of therapy. The response of patients to treatment was

Acne may present in neonates, infants, and small children. Neonatal and infantile acne vulgaris are not considered to be rare. The presentation of acne in this patient population sometimes represents virilization and may portend later development of severe adolescent acne. Neonatal and infantile acne vulgaris must be distinguished from other cutaneous disorders seen in newborns and infants. Infantile acne tends to be more pleomorphic and inflammatory, thus requiring more vigorous therapy than neonatal acne.
Scientific, peer-reviewed Dermatology article, indexed with MEDLINE/PubMed: A Status Report on Topical Tazarotene in the Management of Acne Vulgaris : Tazarotene is a synthetic retinoid that, depending on the concentration and vehicle, is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris (AV) and plaque psoriasis. Tazarotene is also used as adjunctive treatment for specified clinical manifestations of chronically photodamaged skin (facial fine wrinkling, mottled facial hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation, and benign facial lentigines), along with comprehensive skin care and photoprotection from sunlight. The gel formulation was released in the United States in 1997, with the cream formulation made available in 2000. Multiple studies are available supporting the effective and safe use of topical tazarotene for each of its indications. This article provides an overview of the pharmacology of topically applied tazarotene, discussing in particular up-to-date
The areas of skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles can be affected by acne vulgaris. The areas can be face, the upper chest and the back. The state is in youth mostly. Considering an abnormal response to the normal levels of the male hormone testosterone, it fades away over time or decreases reaching at his or her early twenties. It is difficult to predict regarding the time of disappearance of acne. There are people suffering from it in their thirties, forties or more.. There are 85 to 100% people suffering from acne vulgaris. It can be available in the first few weeks and months of life as the newborns are influenced with the maternal hormones. The oil and the dead skin clog the holes of the skin. If the germs get into the holes or pores of the skin, it creates inflammation, ruddiness and emission. The adolescent acne usually starts before the inception of teen years as the adrenal gland starts to make and release androgen hormone. Genetic factors influence acne ...
Summary Background Acne vulgaris is a disorder of the sebaceous follicles. Propionibacterium acnes can be involved in inflammatory acne. Objectives This case-control study aimed at investigating the occurrence and localization of P. acnes in facial biopsies in acne and to characterize the P. acnes phylotype in skin compartments. Methods Specific monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies were applied to skin biopsies of 38 patients with acne and matching controls to localize and characterize P. acnes and to determine expression of co-haemolysin CAMP factor, a putative virulence determinant. Results Follicular P. acnes was demonstrated in 18 (47%) samples from patients with acne and eight (21%) control samples [odds ratio (OR) 3·37, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1·23-9·23; P = 0·017]. In 14 (37%) samples from patients with acne, P. acnes was visualized in large macrocolonies/biofilms in sebaceous follicles compared with only five (13%) control samples (OR 3·85, 95% CI 1·22-12·14; P = 0·021). ...

Almost half a century ago, two small studies on diet and acne that would turn out to greatly influence the evolution of the field of dermatology, in particular the parts of the field that deal with acne vulgaris, a skin disorder that is today highly prevalent in westernized nations, were published (1, 2). Those studies, which found no clear association between the consumption of certain "modern foods" such as chocolate and the development of acne, contributed to imprinting the widely held notion that there is no relationship between diet and acne into the minds of countless dermatologists and other health professionals.. Still, to this day, many, if not most, doctors and dermatologists operate under the belief that the food we eat dont noticeably impact our sebum production, the growth of the acnegenic skin bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, or the development of acne lesions. This is very concerning, because as anyone whos kept up with the research in this area will tell you, there is ...

Acne or acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease in which there is involvement of the pilosebaceous unit. It is evidenced by the presence of open/closed comedones, inflammatory lesions, and papules, pustules, or nodules. Acne results from the interaction of several factors such as: increased sebum production by sebaceous glands, sebaceous gland hyperplasia, and hyperkeratinization of the follicle that impedes normal desquamation of follicular keratinocytes and obstructs the follicle.. Lipids and debris accumulate in the plugged follicle, creating an appropriate environment for Propionibacterium acnes to proliferate. This anaerobic bacterium causes a local immune reaction in which inflammatory cells play a role by producing chemical mediators. Such process extends to the dermis ...

Acne, or acne vulgaris, an inflammatory disorder of hair follicles, is present, to some degree, in more than 90% of humans at some point in their lives. Only 3% of men will have acne into their 40s, but 12% of females will. Females who have never experienced acne in their teens can get breakouts in their twenties. Skin oil called sebum is overproduced under the influence of hormones. This can plug hair follicles leading to overgrowth of normal skin bacteria that is trapped in the plugged follicle. Certain medications such as lithium, cortisone, hormones, iodides, some seizure medications, or isoniazid can also cause or worsen acne lesions.. ...

No, its not a coincidence that every acne treatment youve tried did NOT cure your acne. Most acne sufferers either rationalize thinking its not the treatment that failed to give them lasting freedom from acne, its about them, their genetic weaknesses, their lack of ambition, persistence or dedication to the acne treatment that caused the failure in curing their acne, or some acne sufferers believe their acne is a temporary condition that will vanish in time. None of the above is true. 99% of all acne treatments sold today cannot and will not cure your acne, no mater how much effort youll put in. Also acne is not a temporary disease, it is a resistant condition that if not addressed properly will not cease to exist..
