It refers almost exclusively to skin photosensitivity, including sunburn, reactions due to repeated prolonged exposure in the absence of photosensitizing factors, and reactions requiring photosensitizing factors such as photosensitizing agents and certain diseases. With restricted reference to skin tissue, it does not include photosensitivity of the eye to light, as in photophobia or photosensitive epilepsy.
Drugs used to treat or prevent skin disorders or for the routine care of skin.
Visible accumulations of fluid within or beneath the epidermis.
Nervous system infections caused by tick-borne spirochetes of the BORRELIA BURGDORFERI GROUP. The disease may affect elements of the central or peripheral nervous system in isolation or in combination. Common clinical manifestations include a lymphocytic meningitis, cranial neuropathy (most often a facial neuropathy), POLYRADICULOPATHY, and a mild loss of memory and other cognitive functions. Less often more extensive inflammation involving the central nervous system (encephalomyelitis) may occur. In the peripheral nervous system, B. burgdorferi infection is associated with mononeuritis multiplex and polyradiculoneuritis. (From J Neurol Sci 1998 Jan 8;153(2):182-91)

Characteristics of spontaneous erythema appeared in hairless rats. (1/527)

The hairless rat (WBN/Kob-Ht), a dominant mutant rat derived from the Wistar strain, rarely develops spontaneous erythema of a progressive nature on its skin. Erythema was first observed at 8 weeks of age and the incidence at 20 weeks of age was about 4% in both males and females. Histopathologically, erythema was characterised by dermatitis induced by an immunological reaction. Areas of erythema in the skin were decreased by treatment with dexamethasone (1 mg/kg) or ciclosporin (25 or 50 mg/kg). These results suggested that erythema on the hairless rat could be used as an animal model of spontaneous dermatitis.  (+info)

Correction of bone marrow failure in dyskeratosis congenita by bone marrow transplantation. (2/527)

Dyskeratosis congenita is recognized by its dermal lesions and constitutional aplastic anemia in some cases. We report successful allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in two siblings with this disease from their sister, and their long term follow-up. We used reduced doses of cyclophosphamide and busulfan for conditioning instead of total body irradiation. Also, we report late adverse effects of transplantation which are not distinguishable from the natural course of disease.  (+info)

The UV waveband dependencies in mice differ for the suppression of contact hypersensitivity, delayed-type hypersensitivity and cis-urocanic acid formation. (3/527)

Solar radiation contains ultraviolet B (280-315 nm) and ultraviolet A (ultraviolet AII, 315-340 nm; ultraviolet AI, 340-400 nm) wavebands. Ultraviolet B is known to suppress certain aspects of cell mediated immunity. Using three ultraviolet lamps (the broad-band ultraviolet B TL-12, the narrow-band ultraviolet B TL-01 and an ultraviolet AI source), we investigated the dose and waveband dependencies for the suppression of contact hypersensitivity to oxazolone and delayed-type hypersensitivity to herpes simplex virus, plus the formation of cis-urocanic acid in C3H/HeN mice. A single exposure of 1500 J/m2 TL-12 or 10,000 J/m2 TL-01 or 500,000 J/m2 ultraviolet AI corresponded to 1 minimum erythema dose in this mouse strain. The percentage of cis-urocanic acid of the total urocanic acid rose from a background level of 1.7% to 40% with 1000 J/m2 TL-12 or 10,000 J/m2 TL-01, but only 17% cis-urocanic acid was obtained with 500,000 J/m2 ultraviolet AI. The contact hypersensitivity response was significantly suppressed after a minimum dose of 5000 J/m2 TL-12 or 50,000 J/m2 TL-01 or 500,000 J/m2 ultraviolet AI. The delayed-type hypersensitivity response was suppressed by a minimum dose of 100 J/m2 TL-12 or 10,000 J/m2 TL-01 or 1000 J/m2 ultraviolet AI. So, whereas a low dose of ultraviolet AI reduced the delayed-type hypersensitivity response, a 500-fold higher dose was required to suppress contact hypersensitivity. There was no correlation between the suppression of these responses and the concentration of cis-urocanic acid in the skin. Thus different mediators may modulate the various immune responses affected by ultraviolet exposure, depending on the wavelength of the radiation.  (+info)

Comparison of in vitro and in vivo human skin responses to consumer products and ingredients with a range of irritancy potential. (4/527)

Human skin equivalent cultures were investigated as possible pre-clinical skin irritation screens to aid safety assessments for chemicals and product formulations, and to facilitate design of safe and efficient human studies. In vitro responses in human skin equivalent cultures were compared directly to in vivo human skin responses from historic or concurrent skin tests for representative chemicals and products, including surfactants, cosmetics, antiperspirants, and deodorants. The in vivo data consisted of visual scores (i.e., erythema and edema) from skin-patch tests and diary accounts of skin irritation from product-use studies. In the in vitro studies, cornified, air-interfaced human skin cultures (EpiDerm) were evaluated using methods designed to parallel human clinical protocols with topical dosing of neat or diluted test substances to the stratum corneum surface of the skin cultures. The in vitro endpoints have previously been shown to be relevant to human skin irritation in vivo, including the MTT metabolism assay of cell viability, enzyme release (lactate dehydrogenase and aspartate aminotransferase), and inflammatory cytokine expression (Interleukin-1alpha). For surfactants, dose-response curves of MTT cell-viability data clearly distinguished strongly-irritating from milder surfactants and rank-ordered irritancy potential in a manner similar to repeat-application (3x), patch-test results. For the antiperspirant and deodorant products, all the in vitro endpoints correlated well with consumer-reported irritation (r, 0.75-0.94), with Interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha) release, showing the greatest capacity to distinguish irritancy over a broad range. IL-1alpha release also showed the best prediction of human skin scores from 14-day cumulative irritancy tests of cosmetic products. These results confirm the potential value of cornified human skin cultures as in vitro pre-clinical screens for prediction of human skin irritation responses. A preliminary report of these results has been published.  (+info)

Low-dose UVA and UVB have different time courses for suppression of contact hypersensitivity to a recall antigen in humans. (5/527)

This study investigates the relative effects of low-dose solar-simulated ultraviolet, ultraviolet A, and ultraviolet B radiation on the elicitation of contact hypersensitivity to nickel in nickel-allergic volunteers. A xenon arc lamp with changeable filters was used to irradiate groups of volunteers daily, on separate areas of their lower backs, with both solar-simulated ultraviolet (ultraviolet B, ultraviolet AII + ultraviolet AI) and ultraviolet A (same ultraviolet AII content but twice the ultraviolet AI as the solar-simulated ultraviolet spectrum) for 1 and 2 d; 3, 4, and 5 d; and from 1 to 4 wk. A fourth group was irradiated for 1-5 d with the ultraviolet B component of solar-simulated ultraviolet. Following the final irradiation in each group, nickel-containing patches were applied to both ultraviolet-treated sites and adjacent, unirradiated control sites. Erythema caused by nickel contact hypersensitivity at each site was quantitated 72 h later with a reflectance erythema meter. By comparing the nickel reactions of irradiated and unirradiated skin, ultraviolet immunosuppression was assessed with the different spectra and durations of ultraviolet exposure. We found significant immunosuppression with daily doses of ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A equivalent to approximately 6 min of summer sun exposure, and that ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B exerted their maximal immunosuppressive effects at different times. Solar-simulated ultraviolet-induced immunosuppression was significant after one exposure, near-maximal after two exposures and remained elevated thereafter. Ultraviolet B-induced immunosuppression was lower than that induced by solar-simulated ultraviolet, but followed a similar time-course. In contrast, ultraviolet A-induced immunosuppression was transient, peaking after three exposures. Immune responses returned towards normal with subsequent ultraviolet A exposure, suggesting that an adaptive mechanism may prevent immunosuppression by continued ultraviolet A irradiation.  (+info)

Interferon-gamma is involved in photoimmunoprotection by UVA (320-400 nm) radiation in mice. (6/527)

Ultraviolet B radiation not only inflicts tumor-initiating DNA damage, but also impairs T cell-mediated immunity relevant to survival of the initiated cells. We have reported, however, that ultraviolet A radiation, in contrast, is immunologically innocuous in hairless mice and opossums, but renders the animals resistant to the immunosuppression by ultraviolet B, or its mediator cis-urocanic acid. Ultraviolet B irradiation of skin causes abundant release of numerous cytokines (interleukin-1, interleukin-6, interleukin-10, tumor necrosis factor-alpha); notably interleukin-12 and interferon-gamma do not appear to be upregulated. A recent report has indicated that interleukin-12 protects from photoimmunosuppression in mice, but it remains unclear whether interleukin-12 acts directly or via interferon-gamma, which it is known to stimulate. Here we investigate the possible role of interferon-gamma in UVA photoimmunoprotection, using interferon-gamma gene knockout mice in comparison with control C57/BL6 mice, and the systemic contact hypersensitivity reaction (induced by sensitization through a nonirradiated skin site) to measure immunity. interferon-gamma-/- mice raised normal contact hypersensitivity responses, and were unaffected, as were C57BL control mice, by ultraviolet A exposure. In response to ultraviolet B irradiation or topical cis-urocanic acid treatment, control mice became immunosuppressed by 69% and 27%, respectively, and interferon-gamma-/- mice by 79% and 27%. When ultraviolet B exposure or cis-urocanic acid was followed by ultraviolet A irradiation, however, contact hypersensitivity was totally restored in control mice, but remained suppressed by 55% and 25%, respectively, in interferon-gamma-/- mice. Injection of recombinant interferon-gamma in the interferon-gamma-/- mice restored the ultraviolet A protective effect against cis-urocanic acid-induced immunosuppression. These observations suggest that interferon-gamma plays a part in ultraviolet A immunoprotection from the suppressive effect of ultraviolet B radiation and, and that the mechanism appears to be via antagonism by this cytokine of the cis-urocanic acid immunosuppressive action.  (+info)

Acute systemic reaction and lung alterations induced by an antiplatelet integrin gpIIb/IIIa antibody in mice. (7/527)

Shock is frequently accompanied by thrombocytopenia. To investigate the pathogenic role of platelets in shock, we examined the in vivo effects of monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) against mouse platelet membrane proteins. Injection of the platelet-specific MoAb MWReg30 to the fibrinogen receptor (gpIIb/IIIa) rendered mice severely hypothermic within minutes. Isotype-matched control antibodies, even if they also recognized platelet surface antigens, did not induce comparable signs. MWReg30 induced early signs of acute lung injury with increased cellularity in the lung interstitium and rapid engorgement of alveolar septal vessels. Despite this in vivo activity, MWReg30 inhibited rather than stimulated platelet aggregation in vitro. MWReg30-binding to platelets led to phosphorylation of gpIIIa, but did not induce morphological signs of platelet activation. The MWReg30-induced reaction was abolished after treatment with MoAbs 2.4G2 to FcgammaRII/III and was absent in FcgammaRIII-deficient mice, clearly demonstrating the requirement for FcgammaRIII on involved leukocytes. Simultaneous administration of tumor necrosis factor exacerbated, whereas a tolerizing regimen of tumor necrosis factor or bacterial lipopolysaccharide completely prevented the reaction. These data suggest that platelet surface-deposited MWReg30-immune complexes lead to an acute Fc-mediated reaction with pulmonary congestion and life-threatening potential that could serve as an in vivo model of acute lung injury.  (+info)

Comparison study of combined DTPw-HB vaccines and separate administration of DTPw and HB vaccines in Thai children. (8/527)

The safety, immunogenicity and tolerability of two different DTPw-HBV combination vaccines, containing 5 and 10 microg of HBsAg; were investigated in comparison with separate administration of DTPw and HBV (10 microg of HBsAg). A three dose primary vaccination course at 2, 4 and 6 months of age was followed by a booster dose at 18 months. All vaccines were safe and well tolerated. The DTPw-HBV combination vaccine containing 10 microg of HBsAg elicited significantly higher anti-HBs titres than the other two vaccines after the primary and booster vaccination course. All vaccines elicited a high response against the other components. Based on these results, DTPw-HBV (10 microg HBsAg) was the most effective vaccine at this schedule.  (+info)

Erythema annulare centrifugum (EAC) is one of the figurate or annular erythemas. It is uncommon inflammatory condition characterized by persistent annular or a...
Erythema anulare centrifugum (EAC), also known as deep gyrate erythema, erythema perstans, palpable migrating erythema and superficial gyrate erythema, is a descriptive term for a class of skin lesion presenting redness (erythema) in a ring form (anulare) that spreads from a center (centrifugum). It was first described by Darier in 1916. Many different terms have been used to classify these types of lesions and it is still controversial on what exactly defines EAC. Some of the types include annular erythema (deep and superficial), erythema perstans, erythema gyratum perstans, erythema gyratum repens, darier erythema (deep gyrate erythema) and erythema figuratum perstans. Occurring at any age these lesions appear as raised pink-red ring or bulls-eye marks. They range in size from 0.5-8 cm (0.20-3.15 in). The lesions sometimes increase size and spread over time and may not be complete rings but irregular shapes. Distribution is usually on the thighs and legs but can also appear on the upper ...
When redness appears in ring shapes on the body, it is referred to as erythema annulare, shown here on the forearm. There are generally no symptoms, with the exception of mild itching (pruritus). It may be associated with serious diseases, but in the majority of cases, an underlying illness is never discovered ...
Gyrate erythemas are reactive processes. The therapeutic strategy is to determine and treat the underlying cause, and the cutaneous reaction is then cured.
When I first arrived in Philadelphia in 1984 for my dermatopathology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, the most exciting hours of the week were Thursday mornings at the Duhring Conference. Throngs of Delaware Valley dermatologists would attend, listening to the entertaining (and often iconoclastic) pontifications of dermatologic luminaries such as Al Kligman, Jim Leyden, Paul Gross, Margaret Gray Wood, and the new chairman, Jerry Lazarus. Even though he had left just a couple of years before, the influence of Walter Shelley loomed large over the discussions.
Sensitivity of human skin to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) varies dramatically depending on its colour and also varies within each colour band. Yet, public health policies regarding UVR exposure of human skin are mostly based on our knowledge of the UVR effects in only one skin type class: fair-skinned White Caucasians. This report gives a review of the different approaches to predicting and measuring UVR sensitivity using the Minimal Erythema Dose (MED). The MED is defined as the smallest amount of radiation that causes a noticeable reddening of the skin in an individual after a single exposure (evaluated 1 day post-exposure). Ultraviolet radiation is used to diagnose and treat skin conditions in patients with a broad range of complexions (skin colour) from very fair to very dark. Occupational UVR exposures also concern workers representing all types of skin. A sizable proportion of the population in Western countries uses UVR-emitting indoor tanning equipment. Environmental UVR can induce damage ...
Introduction DRESS (drug reaction and eosinophilia with systemic symptoms) syndrome is a severe drug-induced reaction most typically characterized by fevers, lymphadenopathy, transaminitis, kidney injury, and/or rash. We present a case of DRESS syndrome after vancomycin administration masquerading as Red Man syndrome. Case Description A 63-year old woman with history of Rheumatoid arthritis, hyperlipidemia, and recent right foot osteomyelitis presented to our hospital with fever, malaise, and a diffuse macular, erythematous, blanching rash which started after receiving vancomycin. She had been receiving vancomycin for 4 weeks at the time of presentation for her osteomyelitis. Her symptoms were initially attributed to Red Man Syndrome secondary to rapid infusion of vancomycin, and she was treated with antihistamines with immediate resolution of her rash. The next day, she was noted to have recurrent fevers, worsening rash, transaminitis, and significant eosinophilia. The RegiSCAR (European Registry of
Introduction. Methotrexate-induced acral erythema (AE) is an uncommon manifestation of a commonly used drug in medical practice. Other chemotherapeutic agents such as cytarabine, doxorubicin and fluorouracil have been implicated more frequently.[1],[2],[3] The bullous variant is even more uncommon, with sporadic cases having been reported in the literature. The present case is the first report from India.. Case report. A 40-year-old male patient, a biopsy proven case of squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth, was advised therapy with intravenous methotrexate followed by radiation therapy. He was treated with a single dose of 100mg of intravenous methotrexate. No other chemotherapeutic agents were administered. The patient developed fever within 24h of receiving the injection and burning pain over both soles three days later.. On examination, the patient was found to have severe mucositis involving the lips and oral mucosa [Figure - 1]. There were symmetrical, well-defined erythematous ...
Discussion. The answer is erythema ab igne (EAI; literally redness from fire,) which results from chronic exposure to moderate-intensity heat. EAI presents as a reticulated erythematous patch over the area of exposed skin. Possible secondary changes include epidermal atrophy and scaling.1,2 With repeated exposure, brown hyperpigmentation may develop.1 Most patients are asymptomatic, although some note a mild burning sensation. A history of repeated exposure to heat is key to the diagnosis. While cases were historically noted on skin exposed to fire, such as the arms of bakers and coal shovellers, EAI can result from our many, modern heat-sources, such as laptop computers, car seat heaters, heating pads, and, in this case, the portable space heater under the patients woodworking bench.2-4 With removal of the heat source, hyperpigmentation typically regresses but may take years.1,3 The diagnosis is clinical. A biopsy is not required to make the diagnosis, but is indicated if malignant ...

Medical diagnosis is the way toward figuring out which illness or condition clarifies a mans side effects and signs. It is frequently alluded to as analysis with the medicinal setting being verifiable. The data required for conclusion is normally gathered from a history and physical examination of the individual looking for therapeutic care. Frequently, at least one indicative methodology, for example, analytic tests, are additionally done amid the procedure. In some cases, Posthumous finding is viewed as a sort of medicinal analysis. Finding is frequently testing, because many signs and side effects are nonspecific. For instance, redness of the skin (erythema), without anyone elses input, is an indication of many issue and in this manner, doesnt tell the human services proficient what isnt right. In this manner differential analysis, in which a few conceivable clarifications are considered, must be performed.. ...

An AE is defined as any unfavorable and unintended change in the structure, function, or chemistry of the body temporally associated with the use of the study vaccine, whether or not considered related to the use of the vaccine. Any worsening of a preexisting condition which is temporally associated with the use of the study vaccine is also an AE. Participants were instructed to estimate the severity of AEs such as pain at injection site as mild (awareness of symptom, but easily tolerated), moderate (discomfort enough to cause interference with usual activities), or severe (incapacitating with inability to work or do usual activity). Additionally, participants were instructed to measure any swelling and/or erythema at its greatest width. Swelling or erythema with diameter ,2 inches (,5 cm) was recorded as severe. All AEs associated with the injection site and reported as severe were summarized ...

Skin lesions of erythema multiforme show time-dependent changes from early papular erythema to the late target lesion which consists of a peripheral elevated erythematous area and a central depressed area. We investigated the pathomechanism of erythema multiforme, by examining the papular erythema and target lesion separately. In the early papular erythema, a small number of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and nuclear debris were seen intermingled with mononuclear cells around the slightly swollen blood vessels, on which immunoglobulin and complement components were deposited. Circulating immune complex levels were occasionally elevated. Sera from the patients generated high levels of reactive oxygen species and nitroblue tetrazolium test revealed positive reaction on the infiltrating cells around the blood vessels. These findings suggest that the papular erythema develops via incomplete type III allergic reaction, followed by damage through reactive oxygen species. In the target lesion, the activity of
Dermatologists have long recognized that rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory facial disorder that exhibits a variety of potential clinical manifestations.

The severity of pruritus and the extent and severity of erythema were quantified in 107 dogs presenting with various dermatoses. Pruritus was assessed using a previously validated scale, and erythema was quantified by assessing severity at 72 different body sites. Pruritus scores were either 0, or followed a normal type of distribution, with most dogs having a score in the middle of the range and a few dogs having low or high scores. The median pruritus score was 6.3 ⁄ 10. Erythema scores were heavily skewed towards lower values, with only a few dogs having high scores. The median diffuse erythema score was 6.0 ⁄ 216 and the median score for maculo-papular ⁄ pustular erythema was 0 ⁄ 1080. Pruritus and erythema scores were significantly correlated with a Spearman rank correlation coefficient of 0.4062 (P , 0.001). However, visual assessment of the data representing the two variables revealed that this was not a consistent biological or clinically relevant correlation. Individual dogs ...

Background: Traditionally, classification of skin reactivity to ultraviolet (UV) light is based on self-estimation of tendency to burn and tan (Fitzpatricks classification). Although widely accepted, the model has shown to correlate poorly with actual UV sensitivity, measured by phototest. The aim of the present study was to investigate how self-estimated skin type, according to Fitzpatrick, and actual UV sensitivity measured by phototest correlate with sun exposure and protection. Methods: One hundred and sixty-six voluntary patients visiting their general practitioner for investigation of suspicious skin tumours were recruited for the study, and filled out a questionnaire, mapping sun habits and sun protection behaviour, based on five-point Likert responses. The patients reported their skin type (I-VI) according to Fitzpatrick, and a phototest was performed to determine the minimal erythema dose. Results: For most of the questions, high self-estimated UV sensitivity, according to Fitzpatrick, ...
Erythema toxicum appears as small (1-3 mm), firm, yellow or white raised bumps filled with pus on top of a red area of skin. There may be a few to many lesions, and they may be found on any area of the body, with the exception of palms and soles. Erythema toxicum often begins on the face and spreads, and it may be clustered in areas where there is pressure on the skin. Although it most frequently appears during the first 3-4 days of life, erythema toxicum can be seen at birth and may not be present until 10 days of life. New lesions may appear as older ones resolve. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Associations between disability prevalence and local-area characteristics in a general community-living population. AU - Philibert, Mathieu. AU - Pampalon, Robert. AU - Hamel, Denis. AU - DANIEL, Mark. PY - 2013/10/17. Y1 - 2013/10/17. N2 - BACKGROUND: Disability is understood to arise from person-environment interactions. Hence, heterogeneity in local-area characteristics should be associated with local-area variation in disability prevalence. This study evaluated the associations of disability prevalence with local-area socioeconomic status and contextual features. METHODS: Disability prevalence was obtained from the Canada census of 2001 for the entire province of Québec at the level of dissemination areas (617 individuals on average) based on responses from 20% of the population. Data on local-area characteristics were urban-rural denomination, social and material deprivation, active and collective commuting, residential stability, and housing quality. Associations between ...

We found that CPDs were generated in the complete absence of UV when we incubated plasmid DNA and peroxynitrite with melanin, DHICA, or 5SCD (Fig. 4B). We were unable to test whether the triplet quencher ethyl sorbate blocked these reactions because it was insufficiently soluble in the aqueous buffer. However, we found that DBAS, which redirects triplet energy toward luminescence, reduced CPD production by 50 to 90% (Fig. 4C and fig. S4C). The CPDs created by oxidizing melanin or its monomers included the mutagenic cytosine-containing CPDs (fig. S4D). The level of CPDs induced in the absence of UV was approximately equal to that generated in pure DNA by 25 kJ/m2 of UVA-an exposure about one-quarter of that required to produce a barely perceptible sunburn (the minimal erythema dose). On the basis of our mass spectrometry data from albino murine melanocytes (Fig. 2), this value is approximately 1 CPD per 24 kb of DNA created solely by oxidized melanin.. We next explored whether UV exposure ...
The lesions of herpes simplex labialis often reach maximal severity and size within eight hours of the onset of symptoms. Given this narrow window of opportunity, successful treatment depends on patients being vigilant for the onset of prodromal symptoms and on the availability of effective therapy with a rapid onset of action. Spruance and colleagues evaluated three dosages of oral famciclovir against placebo in the treatment of herpes labialis induced by exposure to UV radiation.. A total of 243 healthy subjects with a history of herpes labialis induced by sunlight were recruited for the study, which was conducted at five academic medical centers. Most of the subjects were white women. They ranged from 18 to 68 years of age (mean age: 35 years), and the mean duration of herpes labialis was 20 years. The mean number of outbreaks in the previous year was 4.7.. For each patient, half of the lip area was exposed to four minimal erythema doses (MED) of UV radiation. The rest of the lip area and ...

In 2013 brimonidine tartrate gel 0.33% (Mirvaso Gel, Galderma Laboratories, LP, Fort Worth, TX) was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of facial erythema of rosacea. It is the first and only drug on the market to address the hallmark redness of this chronic, inflammatory disease. Commonly reported adverse events include erythema/flushing worse than at baseline, most often occurring with the first application. We report a unique case of facial erythema of rosacea that responded to brimonidine gel with effective blanching for two years until the patient developed a paradoxical erythema reaction. This is an adverse reaction physicians should be aware of with continued prescription of brimonidine gel for their rosacea patients. J Drugs Dermatol. 2016;15(6):763-765.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the main etiologic factor for skin cancer. The endogenous hormone melatonin has been proposed to have protective effects against sunlight and topically-applied melatonin has a protective effect against UV-induced erythema. Four human studies and 16 experimental studies evaluated melatonins protective effect against UVR-induced damage to cellular structures and pathways. Melatonin acts directly as an antioxidant, and indirectly by regulating gene expression and inducing a DNA stabilizing effect. The destructive effects of the UVR are significantly counteracted or modulated by melatonin in the context of a complex intracutaneous melatoninergic anti-oxidative system with UVR-enhanced or UVR-independent melatonin metabolites. Therefore, endogenous intracutaneous melatonin production, together with topically-applied exogenous melatonin or metabolites would be expected to represent one of the most potent anti-oxidative defense systems against the UV-induced damage to the ...

Traditional photoplethysmographic imaging (PPGI) systems use the red, green, and blue (RGB) broadband measurements of a consumer digital camera to remotely estimate a patients heart rate; however, these broadband RGB signals are often corrupted by ambient noise, making the extraction of subtle fluctuations indicative of heart rate difficult. Therefore, the use of narrow-band spectral measurements can significantly improve the accuracy. We propose a novel digital spectral demultiplexing (DSD) method to infer narrow-band spectral information from acquired broadband RGB measurements in order to estimate heart rate via the computation of motion- compensated skin erythema fluctuation. Using high-resolution video recordings of human participants, multiple measurement locations are automatically identified on the cheeks of an individual, and motion-compensated broadband reflectance measurements are acquired at each measurement location over time via measurement location tracking. The motion-compensated ...

There were no immediate symptoms. What I mean by that is, next day, no symptoms. It sort of develops over a week. By symptoms I mean RUQ pain and a blossoming of palmar erythema. Even my feet are hot! I suspect I also had my first little spider angioma. But it went away within a week? Could that be? Can they really appear and disappear so quickly? I think things are already slowly starting to get better, now that were in the 2nd week. The pain is mostly gone but I had a day or two of pale stools. My guess is that will also improve during the next week or so. The PE is still quite pronounced; and the anxiety that it causes doesnt help much. darn; one year recovery already and I still slip up because of a silly act that made me cross: just listen to this nonsense.

p=0.001), and the high percentage of maximum dose (p=0.043) remained associated with the increased rate of ≥ G2 acute skin toxicity. These results are consistent with the previous reports [13][14][15][16]. We suggest; that, patients with high BMI, large bra cup size, and large breast separation are at risk to occur moderate to severe acute skin toxicity, because this group of patients often had a large breast size, which had more skin folding, which in turn caused dose inhomogeneity and increased the percentage of maximum dose in their treatment plans. There were 17 patients (51.5%) in the NBW group and 20 patients (30.3%) in the BW group that received the maximum dose of more than 110%. We attempted to minimize the volume of tissue receiving greater than 110% of the prescription dose to as low as possible, but treatment planning in some patients was very difficult to plan, and to make a homogeneous dose, thus, causing a high percentage of maximum dose in the plan. However, we suggest that the ...
My daughter had a staph infection that turned out to be MRSA. The infection was in her blood stream as well as the infection in the skin. She received Vancomycin IV for 2+ weeks with no adverse reaction. She has been off Vancomycin for a week and has developed a rash over her body that appears to be hives. It is not a flushing of the skin but almost looks more like a heat rash but more spread out over her body. I talked to the Dr. on the phone and he told her to take Benadryl for the next 24 hours and if no improvement to come to the ER. There was no improvement so she went to the ER and was diagnosd with Red Man Syndrome. I am wondering whether this is possible as this usually occurs during administration and not a week later. Also it is not a flushing, or warmth to the skin. Is there another possibility ...
The first step is to immediately stop administering the antibiotic and start (lower dosage) only when the symptoms vanish or reduce. If the symptoms are too severe, the patient needs to be hospitalized and monitored regularly with the administration of antihistamines and antibiotics.
