Topical psoriasis therapy. (1/36)

Psoriasis is a common dermatosis, affecting from 1 to 3 percent of the population. Until recently, the mainstays of topical therapy have been corticosteroids, tars, anthralins and keratolytics. Recently, however, vitamin D analogs, a new anthralin preparation and topical retinoids have expanded physicians' therapeutic armamentarium. These new topical therapies offer increased hope and convenience to the large patient population with psoriasis.  (+info)

Anti-psoriatic drug anthralin activates JNK via lipid peroxidation: mononuclear cells are more sensitive than keratinocytes. (2/36)

Anthralin is a widely used, topical therapy for psoriasis. Anti-proliferative and anti-inflammatory properties of anthralin have been identified. Little is known, however, about differential sensitivities of targeted cell types and specific mechanisms of signaling pathway activation. We demonstrate that anthralin exerts potent effects on keratinocytes and mononuclear cells through strong induction of lipid peroxidation and JNK activation, a stress-induced signal transduction pathway. Lipid peroxidation was observed rapidly and half-maximal levels of lipid peroxidation were reached at a 10-fold lower concentration of anthralin for peripheral blood mononuclear cells vs normal keratinocytes. JNK activation was detected in peripheral blood mononuclear cells at a 40-fold lower anthralin dose compared with keratinocytes. For both cell types, selected inhibitors of lipid peroxidation prevented JNK activation. This study demonstrates that mononuclear leukocytes are markedly more sensitive than keratinocytes to anthralin-induced lipid peroxidation and JNK activation. We identify anthralin as a novel and potent inducer of JNK activation and demonstrate that this process is mediated, at least in part, by lipid peroxidation which is among the earliest and most proximate, membrane-related responses to anthralin yet described.  (+info)

Nonspecific inhibition of DNA repair synthesis by tumor promoters in human diploid fibroblasts damaged with N-acetoxy-2-acetylaminofluorene. (3/36)

The effects of selected tumor-promoting agents and their nonpromoting analogs on DNA repair synthesis were examined in human diploid fibroblasts (WI-38) damaged with N-acetoxy-2-acetylaminofluorene. Over a range of doses, three promoters (croton oil, 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate, and anthralin) were found to inhibit DNA repair synthesis while their nonpromoting analogs (phorbol and 1,8-dihydroxyanthraquinone) had little effect. Another tumor promoter, phenol, inhibited DNA repair synthesis only at very high concentrations while an analog, 4-nitrophenol, produced inhibition of DNA repair synthesis at molar concentrations at which phenol had no effect. To investigate the specificity of this phenomenon, the effects of these agents on DNA-replicative synthesis, RNA synthesis, protein synthesis, and cell morphology were evaluated. At equimolar concentrations, tumor promoters were found to inhibit DNA-replicative synthesis as effectively as repair synthesis. RNA and protein synthesis were similarly inhibited over the same range of concentrations. Extensive morphological changes, interpreted as evidence of toxicity, were seen at concentrations of promoters that inhibited the macromolecular syntheses studied. The nonpromoting analogs, with the exception of nitrophenol, had little effect on these processes and showed only slight morphological damage. Thus tumor-promoting agents appeared to inhibit a number of macromolecular synthetic events, including DNA repair synthesis. It is suggested that the effect of tumor promoters on DNA repair synthesis is part of a general response to cellular injury rather than a selective response involving a single metabolic pathway. Furthermore, it is unlikely that the inhibition of repair synthesis represents the major mode of action of promoting agents in the carcinogenic process.  (+info)

A highly decreased binding of cyclic adenosine monophosphate to protein kinase A in erythrocyte membranes is specific for active psoriasis. (4/36)

A cyclic adenosine monophosphate binding abnormality in psoriatic erythrocytes that could be corrected by retinoid treatment has been reported. It was tested whether this binding abnormality is specific for psoriasis and the effects of treatment were compared with etretinate, cyclosporine A, or anthralin on 2-(3)H-8-N(3)-cyclic adenosine monophosphate binding to the regulatory subunit of protein kinase A in erythrocyte membranes. One hundred and fifteen individuals were evaluated, including: (i) 34 healthy persons; (ii) 15 patients with nonatopic inflammatory skin diseases (eczema, erythroderma, tinea, Grover's disease, erysipelas, urticaria); (iii) eight with other dermatoses mediated by immune mechanisms (systemic lupus erythematosus, lichen planus, necrotizing vasculitis, erythema nodosum, systemic sclerosis); (iv) 14 with generalized atopic dermatitis; and (v) 44 with psoriasis vulgaris clinically assessed by Psoriasis Area and Severity Index. In psoriasis, the course of the binding of 2-(3)H-8-N(3)-cyclic adenosine monophosphate to erythrocytes was measured in nine patients during a 10 wk treatment with etretinate, in 21 patients during a 10 wk treatment with cyclosporine A, and one patient under topical treatment with anthralin for 4 wk. We found the following femtomolar binding per mg protein: (i) healthy persons (1064 +/- 124, mean +/- SD); (ii) nonatopic inflammatory skin diseases (995 +/- 103); (iii) immune dermatoses (961 +/- 92); (iv) atopic dermatitis (960 +/- 110); and (v) psoriasis (645 +/- 159; p < 0.0001 compared with nonpsoriatics, Mann-Whitney U test). Treatment of psoriasis with etretinate, cyclosporine A, or anthralin normalized the binding of cyclic adenosine monophosphate, which was inversely correlated to the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index score. It was concluded that the decreased binding of cyclic adenosine monophosphate to protein kinase A in erythrocytes is specific for psoriasis and normalizes after successful treatment.  (+info)

A systematic review of adverse effects associated with topical treatments for psoriasis. (5/36)

Mild to moderate psoriasis is a disease that can often be treated with topical medications. The diversity of topical therapies and their disparate side effects complicates treatment planning. Our purpose is to compare the rates of adverse events associated with different topical psoriasis treatments. A review of medical literature from 1996 to March, 2002 was conducted using guidelines set by QUORUM statement criteria. In monotherapy studies, corticosteriods caused fewer adverse reactions compared to vitamin D analogues and tazarotene. In combination studies adverse event rates were higher than in monotherapy studies, except for the combination of topical steroid and calcipotriene which decreased irritation. Irritant contact dermatitis was the main side effect with vitamin D analogues, tazarotene, dithranol or coal tar, while side effects of topical corticosteriods included headache, viral infection and skin atrophy. Topical agents for psoriasis are usually well-tolerated without severe side effects. Formulating a patient's medication regimen should take into account the needs for short-term management and long-term control of psoriasis. Since clearance is not a realistic expectation, reasonable goals should be set as excessive use of topical treatments may increase the risk of both cutaneous and systemic side effects.  (+info)

Cytokines and signal transduction pathways mediated by anthralin in alopecia areata-affected Dundee experimental balding rats. (6/36)

Although many therapeutic modalities have been tested on alopecia areata, patient outcomes have been disappointing. Use of animal models would help to develop more efficient therapies as well as understanding therapeutic mechanisms. We have demonstrated that 0.1% topical anthralin ointment is 100% effective in restoring follicular activity in Dundee experimental balding rats. This is the most promising topical treatment for Dundee experimental balding rats among the therapeutic agents tested on this model. Various cytokines have been shown to be associated with the pathogenesis of alopecia areata. To test whether any of these cytokines might be modulated by anthralin, an RNase protection assay and the real-time polymerase chain reaction were performed to compare their expression between anthralin-treated and control skins. These experiments showed that expression of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and interferon-gamma was inhibited by anthralin, whereas expression of interleukin-1alpha/beta and their receptor antagonist, interleukin-1Ra, and interleukin-10 was stimulated by anthralin. In addition, using an antibody-based multi-immunoblotting technique, we found that certain signaling regulatory proteins were modulated by anthralin. Their potential roles in reversing the autoimmune-arrested follicular activity in Dundee experimental balding rats are discussed.  (+info)

Old wine in new bottles: reviving old therapies for alopecia areata using rodent models. (7/36)

Alopecia areata is regarded as a tissue-restricted autoimmune disease of hair follicles in which follicular activity is arrested because of the continued activity of lymphocytic infiltrates. Actual loss of hair follicles does not occur, even in hairless lesions. A variety of immunomodulating therapies, including contact sensitizers and immunomodulators, are part of the usual armamentarium for this disorder. None of these treatments have been consistent in their efficacy, and many have untoward side effects. Nevertheless, their uses in valid animal models provide a tool to dissect out molecular mechanisms of therapeutic effects. For several decades, both mechlorethamine (for the treatment of cutaneous T cell lymphoma) and anthralin (for the treatment of psoriasis) have been used successfully. When these therapies were tested in rat and mouse alopecia areata models, we found anthralin and mechlorethamine to be the most effective topical modalities, respectively. The underlying cellular mechanisms may act through targeting infiltrative lymphocytes, and the molecular mechanisms may involve specific cytokine expression changes. These visible, accessible, and unilaterally treated animal model systems are ideal for studying novel alopecia areata therapies, particularly in terms of their in vivo molecular mechanisms of action.  (+info)

Anthralin, a non-TPA type tumor promoter, synergistically enhances phorbol ester-caused prostaglandin E2 release from primary cultured mouse epidermal cells. (8/36)

Primary cultures of mouse epidermal cells (i.e., target cells of skin tumor promotion) stimulated by 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) release prostaglandin E2 within 30 min. Anthralin, a non-TPA type tumor promoter, also stimulated PGE2 release; however, no release was detectable at least up to 4 hr after the addition of anthralin. When the cells were incubated with TPA plus anthralin, both PGE2 and arachidonic acid release were synergistically enhanced. Other non-TPA type tumor promoters, i.e., chrysarobin, 7-bromomethylbenz[a]anthracene, benzoylperoxide, okadaic acid and palytoxin, did not potentiate the TPA-caused PGE2 release. In protein kinase C-down regulated cells, the synergistic stimulation of PGE2 and arachidonic acid release by TPA plus anthralin were not detected. Anthralin plus TPA did not alter the incorporation of arachidonic acid into cellular phospholipids. Cellular cyclooxygenase activity was increased 2 hr after TPA stimulation. Anthralin-caused increase in cyclooxygenase activity was detected at 6 hr after the addition of anthralin. Cyclooxygenase activity was synergistically increased by treating the cells with TPA plus anthralin. Cycloheximide and actinomycin D inhibited the increase in cyclooxygenase activity caused by anthralin or TPA plus anthralin. These results indicate that anthralin synergistically stimulates TPA-caused PGE2 release by synergistically increasing arachidonic acid release and cellular cyclooxygenase activity.  (+info)

Topical therapy is the mainstay of treatment for patients with localized disease. Adherence to topical regimens can be poor, however. Regular use of emollient agents can help to hydrate and soften the skin. Tar products and anthralin are no longer favored because of their noxious odor and their tendency to cause staining of clothing and skin. Topical corticosteroids have antiinflammatory and antiproliferative effects and are available in many forms and strengths. Corticosteroids have demonstrated rapid effectiveness and are the most commonly prescribed treatment, despite side effects of cutaneous atrophy, formation of telangiectasia, and hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression.8 Agent selection is based on both the location and the thickness of the plaques. Unfortunately, many patients will experience disease reactivation once corticosteroid treatment is discontinued.

Covering topical therapy with bandages, body suits, wet-wraps and dressings can be very helpful in the management of chronic eczema (see Chapter 25). Prior to occlusion, the practitioner should ensure the eczema is not infected. Patients and their carers should be taught how to apply these occlusive aids which are generally worn overnight. Occlusive therapy helps relieve symptoms of itch, keep emollient creams on the skin and drive topical therapy through the epidermis. The potency of topical steroids is enhanced 100-fold by occlusion; therefore, only very low potency steroids should be used under occlusion. Patients are able to purchase these over the counter, and personal preference and acceptability usually guide their choice.

Sadly, no. However, alopecia can be treated. Many alopecia areata sufferers opt for corticosteroids injections, which are anti-inflammatory and work by toning down the inflammatory cells mistakenly attacking your hair follicles. The shots are administered in the bald areas every three to six weeks, with regrowth often appearing four weeks after the last shot. If injections arent for you, topical corticosteroids can also be applied to the affected sites. Your doctor may suggest minoxidil (Rogaine) as a complement to topical corticosteroids to help speed up healthy regrowth. Speaking of regrowth: Anthralin, a tar-like ointment that you apply for 20 to 60 minutes and then wash away, may help stimulate hair growth.. Of course, you could opt out of treatment because, as we mentioned earlier, in many cases, hair will grow back over time. If you choose this route, it could take a year to regrow your hair back to its former glory.. As always, its best to see your dermatologist for more treatment ...

Specific glutamates in the methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins (MCPs) of Escherichia coli are modified during sensory adaptation. Attractants that bind to MCPs are known to increase the rate of receptor modification, as with serine and the serine receptor (Tsr), which contributes to an increase in the steady-state (adapted) methylation level. However, MCPs form ternary complexes with two cytoplasmic signaling proteins, the kinase (CheA) and an adaptor protein (CheW), but their influences on receptor methylation are unknown. Here, the influence of CheW on the rate of Tsr methylation has been studied to identify contributions to the process of adaptation. Methyl group incorporation was measured in a series of membrane samples in which the Tsr molecules were engineered to have one available methyl-accepting glutamate residue (297, 304, 311 or 493). The relative rates at these sites (0.14, 0.05, 0.05 and 1, respectively) differed from those found previously for the aspartate receptor (Tar), which was in
Biologically active cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) are an emerging class of therapeutic agent. The wasp venom peptide mastoparan is an established CPP that modulates mitochondrial activity and triggers caspase-dependent apoptosis in cancer cells, as does the mastoparan analogue mitoparan (mitP). Mitochondrial depolarisation and activation of the caspase cascade also underpins the action of dithranol, a topical agent for treatment of psoriasis. The effects of a potent mitP analogue on mitochondrial activity were therefore examined to assess its potential as a novel approach for targeting mitochondria for the treatment of psoriasis. In HaCaT keratinocytes treated with the mitP analogue Z-Gly-RGD(DPhe)-mitP for 24 h, a dose-dependent loss of mitochondrial activity was observed using the methyl-thiazolyl-tetrazolium (MTT) assay. At 10 μmol L−1, MTT activity was less than 30% that observed in untreated cells. Staining with the cationic dye JC-1 suggested that Z-Gly-RGD(DPhe)-mitP also dissipated the

The objective assessment of treatment efficacy is very difficult and spontaneous remission is unpredictable, but if the affected area is patched, the hair may regrow spontaneously in many cases.[18] None of the existing therapeutic options are curative or preventive.[18]. In cases of severe hair loss, limited success has been achieved by using the corticosteroids clobetasol or fluocinonide, corticosteroid injections, or cream. The cream is not as effective and it takes longer in order to see results. Steroid injections are commonly used in sites where the areas of hair loss on the head are small or especially where eyebrow hair has been lost. Whether they are effective is uncertain. Some other medications that have been used are minoxidil, Elocon (mometasone) ointment (steroid cream), irritants (anthralin or topical coal tar), and topical immunotherapy ciclosporin, sometimes in different combinations. Topical corticosteroids frequently fail to enter the skin deeply enough to affect the hair ...
If your hair loss is mild, you may not need treatment. Sometimes alopecia areata gets better or goes away on its own.. If you need treatment, your doctor might inject your bald spot with a medicine called a steroid. Your doctor might also have you apply minoxidil solution, a steroid cream or lotion, or anthralin cream (brand name: Psoriatec). If your hair loss is spreading quickly, you might need to take a steroid pill.. If you have lost more than half of your scalp hair, your doctor might have you see a dermatologist. A dermatologist is a doctor with special training in the treatment of skin diseases. The dermatologist might have you use medicines that could get your hair to grow again.. Sometimes treatment does not improve alopecia areata. Even when the scalp responds to treatment, it may take a few months for new hair to grow. ...

NADPH oxidases are major sources of reactive oxygen species (ROS) involved in the pathophysiology of many cardiovascular diseases, acting through the modulation of redox-sensitive signalling pathways as well as the inactivation of nitric oxide and generation of endothelial dysfunction. There are five oxidase isoforms (Nox1 - Nox5), which have different tissue distributions, are subject to stimulus-specific activation and may exert distinct downstream effects. Endothelial cells co-express two of these isoforms, the classical Nox isoform, Nox2, and a novel isoform, Nox4. Recent studies indicate that Nox4 generates predominantly hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) but its role in vivo remains unclear. To address this question, transgenic mice with endothelial-specific overexpression of Nox4 were studied as an approach to investigate the in vivo functional significance of Nox4 in the endothelium. Unexpectedly, Nox4 overexpression was found to significantly enhance acetylcholine-induced vasodilatation compared ...
In about 50% of cases, hair will grow again within a year without any treatment. The longer the time period of hair loss, the less likelihood that the hair will grow again.. Patients with Alopecia areata are treated with either immune-modulating therapies, such as topical immunotherapy, glucocorticoids, or biologic-response modifiers like minoxidil, or anthralin, ,. Hair growth is triggered by these treatments but hair loss may not be prevented and probably the course of the disease is not influenced. Treatment may take months or years. The choice of therapy is dependent chiefly upon the patients age and the extent of the hair loss. Mild cases of hair loss respond excellently to treatment. However, in individuals with complete loss of hair, no treatment works. Hair follicles are not destroyed in patients with alopecia areata, and the potential for regrowth always remains.. Role of diet in preventing hair loss:. New hiar growth stimulation using natural remedies is only one part of treating and ...

14. The diagnosis of psoriasis is usually based on the presence of typical skin lesions. There are no special blood tests or diagnostic procedures. 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. The management of psoriasis is not restricted to the treatment of the skin lesions, but also aims to deal with the different comorbidities. Health professionals need to be aware of the likelihood of comorbid conditions in order to ...

Evidence summary. A 2013 meta-analysis of 26 RCTs with 8020 patients evaluated topical treatments for scalp psoriasis as part of a subanalysis of a larger Cochrane review of psoriasis therapy.1 Only 20 studies reported the severity of disease: 13 studies looked at moderate to severe scalp psoriasis and the others examined mild to severe disease.. Results were reported as standardized mean differences (SMD) and also converted to a 6-point global improvement scale created by the authors to provide a combined endpoint of provider- or patient-assessed improvement in symptoms such as redness, thickness, and scaling. Higher scores indicate more improvement.. Compared with placebo, the very potent corticosteroid clobetasol propionate improved psoriasis by 1.9 points on the 6-point scale (4 trials, 788 patients; SMD= −1.6; 95% confidence interval [CI], −1.8 to −1.3). The potent steroid betamethasone diproprionate improved symptoms by 1.3 points compared with placebo (2 trials, 712 patients; SMD= ...

Results: Of the 201 hospitalized UC patients, 82 (40.8%) were treated with topical 5-acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and/or topical rectal steroids. The main factors significantly and positively associated with receiving topical treatment were the use of topical treatment in the year prior to the hospitalization, receiving oral 5-ASA, and living in an urban area. The mode of administration was further related to the language area. Patients with topical therapy significantly more often received other UC-related medications, such as combinations with systemic steroids. They significantly more often underwent colonoscopies and calprotectin measurements, and more often consulted a gastroenterologist in the follow-up, while there was no significant difference regarding rehospitalizations ...
