The most common side effects of all fluoroquinolones are GI-related and include nausea, anorexia, and dyspepsia.4 Dermatologic adverse effects also may occur, either with initial (within a few hours) or previous exposure to these drugs.7 The degree of severity ranges from mild erythema to extensive bullous lesions. Phototoxicity Severe phototoxic reactions, consisting of second-degree burns that have required hospitalization, have occurred with sparfloxacin. Exposure to ultraviolet A rays from direct or indirect sunlight should be avoided during treatment and several days (5 days with sparfloxacin) after the use of the drug.8 The degree of phototoxic potential of fluoroquinolones is as follows: lomefloxacin , sparfloxacin , ciprofloxacin or grepafloxacin.4 Photosensitive reactions have been reported in 2.3% of patients receiving lomefloxacin, and recovery may take several weeks.9 The risk of phototoxicity with other fluoroquinolones, including the recently approved gemifloxacin, is limited.

Editorial Note: Skin disorders appear to represent a widespread but largely unrecognized problem among supermarket employees. Many of the rashes among these workers appear to be phytophotodermatitis, a well-circumscribed rash evoked by contact with linear furanocoumarins (psoralens), followed by exposure of the skin to long-wave ultraviolet light (350 nm). It is associated with exposure to a wide variety of fruits, flowers, and vegetables, including celery, dill, parsley, oil from lime peels, parsnip, oil of Bergamont, and chrysanthemums. Exposure to sunlight is sufficient to provoke phytophotodermatitis following contact with psoralens. However, the use of artificial ultraviolet light in tanning salons appears in the present instance to have enhanced this effect. In phytophotodermatitis, the reaction is typically confined to the initial site of contact and is characterized by redness and blistering in the absence of itching and by residual hyperpigmentation (1). This type of reaction differs ...
inbook{3bd623ff-8bf6-4c74-94a7-aa2055d1daba, abstract = {Phototoxicity occurs when a substance is toxic only under the action of light, and can, depending on the mechanism of toxic action, be divided into type I and type II phototoxicity. Other types are sometimes recongnized, and sometimes toxicity occurs through more than one mechanism. Plants often use phototoxins for their defense. They may be harmful to man, but also exploited for medical treatments. On the other hand, drugs selected for other properties may show unwanted phototoxicity. Some fungi produce phototoxins. Due to other kinds of poisoning or to disease even the human or animal body may produce phototoxins and be harmed by them. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), widespread environmental contaminants, have a potential to become toxic or acquire increased toxicity when they inter-act with natural or simulated sunlight. Because of their chemical structure numerous PAHs absorb energy in the UV waveband. Phototoxicity of PAHs ...
Melasma is blotchy areas of brown skin pigmentation on the face.Individual results may vary. Melasma, (also known as chloasma), appears as blotchy pale brownish pigmentation on the face, especially forehead, cheek and upper lip. It is more common on darker skin types. It is especially common in women aged 20-40 and is associated with pregnancy or taking the contraceptive pill or injection. It also happens in healthy, non pregnant woman taking no medications and men using aftershave.. Sun exposure following some cosmetics can cause a phototoxic reaction where the chemical substance absorbs UV light. The resulting pigmentation extends where sun and cosmetic use have coincided, for example down the neck, often more on the right side in countries that drive on the left.. Melasma is more stubborn and unpredictable to treat than freckles or age spots because the melanocytes have become sensitized and continue to produce extra pigment with even the slightest hint of sun. Sun protection is an essential ...
This summer, check your medications before you head out into the sun. Many common drugs, including some over-the-counter painkillers and allergy medicines, will increase your susceptibility to painful sunburns and other skin problems or up your risk of heatstroke.. "We see this a lot; its very common," emergency room physician Robert Glatter says of sun-related side effects. "People need to read the side effect profiles as regards the environment when they are taking certain medications.". Glatter, who practices at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, says several antibiotics are a frequent cause of summertime trips to the ER.. "People will take them and then go to the beach, and well see them come in beet red with a head-to-toe sunburn," Glatter says. "This is whats called a phototoxic reaction.". "The majority of these drugs give you an exaggerated sunburn, but others might give you immediate burning," says dermatologist Lorraine Young, cochief of dermatology clinical services and a clinical ...
Id always heard to avoid much sun exposure while on methotrexate and never paid much attention and sunbathed lots, for nearly 6 years I was fine and then last summer I had a horrific phototoxic reaction I had to see 11 skin specialists for. My skin looked burnt but wasnt and it turned purple then black then eventually deep brown but in bizarre patches and I had to have spray tans done every 2 weeks to fill in the marks. I was just very lucky it didnt affect my face and even now a year on I can still see the marks it has permanently damaged my pigment. I now have to take hydroxycholoquine (Plaquenil) during the months where UV is high or I could react again.. If your on medication that says avoid sun exposure PLEASE PLEASE avoid it!!! I dodged the bullet for 6 years but wham it got me, theyre not sure why it took so long it could have been a build up in my system but it just isnt worth the risk and if you do get a reaction the effects can last a LOOOOONG time let alone what it could do to ...

The yeast growth inhibition assay, which is based on photodynamic reactions of compounds with cells organelles or DNA, was validated as possible alternative to animal testing to predict phototoxicity of chemicals after optimization of various factors. The data for 24 chemicals (8 fragrances, 5 UV absorbers, 4 drugs, 4 antimicrobials and 3 dyes) were compared with in vivo phototoxicity test results in guinea pigs. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and equivalence of the in vitro test were 89%, 80%, 73%, 92% and 81%, respectively. Three chemicals were identified as false positive compounds, and one was identified as a false negative in the yeast growth inhibition assay. Although an excellent correlation was obtained between in vivo studies and yeast growth inhibition assay, a false negative result was still observed, so the combination of the photohemolysis test, which we have already reported, and the yeast test was used as a battery system. The ...
Non-immunological, photochemically evoked inflammatory skin reaction in an irradiated region which resembles sunburn and may present with erythema, oedema and bulla formation. Photosensitising substances increase the reactivity of the skin to UV radiation. They lead to acute sunburn-like skin reactions at radiation doses which, with normal sensitivity of the skin, would be tolerated without reaction. Photosensitising substances can arise endogenously (e.g. porphyrins) or can be supplied exogenously via the skin (e.g. tar, eosin), gastrointestinal tract or parenterally (e.g. drugs). Drugs causing phototoxic eruptions include tetracyclines, phenothiazines, griseofulvin and dacarbazine.. ...

November 19, 2016 GAITHERSBURG, MD - October 12, 2016 - Funded by a grant from the European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA), the Institute for In Vitro Sciences, Inc.(IIVS) has released a technical training video that describes a cell-based in vitro method for assessing phototoxicity - the potential for chemicals to cause damage after being exposed to light.. The 19-minute video is the second technical training video on non-animal methods that is produced by IIVS with EPAAs support. Both videos are designed to help scientists from industry and regulatory agencies perform these animal-saving methods in their own laboratories. Many industries around the world, including the cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors, need to assess phototoxicity to assure the safety of their products. The video is available in English, with subtitled versions in Chinese and Portuguese, filling a void in reaching a wide audience of scientists in countries where reliance on animal testing ...

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, called NSAIDs, include very common over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen (popularly sold as Advil and Motrin), ketoprofen (Orudis), naproxen (Aleve) and celecoxib (Celebrex). Despite the ubiquity of these medications, many users arent aware that they can potentially cause either or both photoallergic and phototoxic reactions in them.. Ibuprofen, ketoprofen and naproxen can all produce phototoxic reactions in people taking them [source: Zhang]. Bad sunburn or some other skin irregularity while taking one of these NSAIDs could be a sign of phototoxicity. Both ketoprofen and celecoxib can produce photoallergic reactions in patients [source: Zhang]. As with any photoallergic reaction, presentation of symptoms like hives and rashes will show up about 24 to 72 hours after exposure to sunlight, which is the amount of time it takes for the body to mount an allergic response.. ...
Drug-induced photosensitivity may present in a variety of ways. Most reactions are either phototoxic or photoallergic. Photoallergy is a rare, immunological response, which is not dose-related and occurs after continuous exposure. Photoallergy occurs when light causes a drug to act as a hapten, triggering a hypersensitivity response which often manifests as pruritic and eczematous rash.Phototoxic reactions are chemically-induced reactions which occur when the drug absorbs UVA light and causes cellular damage. This reaction can be seen with initial exposure to a drug, may be dose-related, and doesnt demonstrate cross-sensitivity. It usually has rapid onset and manifests as an exaggerated sunburn. This reaction will be seen only on skin areas exposed to the sun ...
The 3T3 Neutral Red Uptake Phototoxicity Assay (3T3 NRU PT) can be utilized to identify the phototoxic effect of a test substance induced by the combination of test substance and light and is based on the comparison of the cytotoxic effect of a test substance when tested after the exposure and in the absence of exposure to a non-cytotoxic dose of UVA/vis light. Cytotoxicity is expressed as a concentration-dependent reduction of the uptake of the vital dye - Neutral Red. Substances that are phototoxic in vivo after systemic application and distribution to the skin, as well as compounds that could act as phototoxicants after topical application to the skin can be identified by the test. The reliability and relevance of the 3T3 NRU PT have been evaluated and has been shown to be predictive when compared with acute phototoxicity effects in vivo in animals and humans."

Cerium dioxide (CeO2) engineered nanoparticles (NP) are used as fuel-borne catalysts in off-road diesel engines, which can lead to exhaust emissions of respirable CeO2 NP. Other metal oxides may act as photo-catalysts which induce the generation of free radicals upon exposure to UV radiation or visible light. The current study tested the hypothesis that CeO2 NP would cause a dose-dependent phototoxic reaction in human-derived retinal pigment epithelial cells (ARPE-19) after UV exposure. Two samples of CeO2 NP (Alfa Aesar, 36-99 nm; NanoAmor, 6-60 nm) were suspended in cell culture media with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS) at concentrations: 0, 3, 10, 20, 30, 55, 100ug/ml or 20ug/m1 TiO2 NP (Degussa P25; positive control) and administered to ARPE-19 cells grown in 24-well plates. Plates were either exposed to UV radiation (t=90min) or kept in the dark. After 24hrs, cell viability was determined with a calcein-AM/propidium iodide stain. Exposure to higher concentrations of CeO2 NP reduced cell ...

It is contraindicated in children, lactating women, pregnant women and those who have photosensitivity disorders. Oral 8-MOP is started at 0.3mg/kg, given 2 hours before shinning with UVA light therapy. The dose is slowly increased after each treatment. Side effects include nausea, vomiting and phototoxic reactions. ...
Citrus fruit whose volatile compounds are skin sensitizers and photosensitizers. Lime oil is a known fragrance sensitizer that contains the fragrance chemicals bergapten and limonene, both of which can cause whats known as a photosenstive reaction when applied to skin. A phototoxic reaction can result in a patchy, uneven appearance to skin. Although lime extract and oil may have some antioxidant activity, their sensitizer potential outweighs any benefit..

Despite the widespread use of quinolones to treat infections of the ears, nose, and throat, well-controlled studies are uncommon. Malignant (necrotizing) external otitis is an invasive infection of the external auditory canal and skull base, whose typical host is the elderly patient with diabetes mellitus. With the advent and widespread use of quinolones for all ear infections, patients with malignant external otitis are being diagnosed and treated earlier in the course of the disease, thus changing the clinical spectrum of this infection. Oral ciprofloxacin has been used successfully for individuals with auricular perichondritis. Potential limitations of oral quinolones for the treatment of soft-tissue infections of the auricle are suggested by reports of phototoxic lesions induced by quinolones in the auricular skin of mouse models. Cumulative evidence supports the utility of quinolones for treatment of chronic ear infections with multiresistant bacterial. Infections of the ear, nose, and throat are
To evaluate the benefits of lutein in preventing retinal phototoxicity generated by xenon light sources during vitreoretinal surgery. A prospective cross-sectional study in pigmented rabbit eyes exposed to different vitreoretinal surgery lighting simulations. Twenty Dutch-belted rabbits were divided into two groups exposed to two different xenon wavelength light sources filters (420 nm and 435 nm). In addition, two subgroups were administered with daily supplemental of 10 mg of Lutein systemically. Electroretinography (ERG), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescein angiography (FA) were performed before and after surgery to quantify the retinal damage. All animals submitted to the experiment presented some degree of phototoxicity independent of wavelength light filter used. Retinal damage was evident as the FA presented areas of hyperfluorescence, and the OCT depicted increased reflective areas of the inner and outer retinal layers, and RPE. ERG showed a diffuse reduction of the a and b waves

Measurements of the spectrum and energy output of commercially available light sources for endoillumination indicate that the ICNIRP safety guidelines for retinal damage by visible light are exceeded within 3 minutes. For nine out of 10 sources the safe exposure time is even less than 1 minute. Within this very short exposure time guideline thresholds are surpassed irrespective of the filters that are advocated by the manufacturer and even when the probe is kept at a distance of 10 mm from the retina. The safety limits for thermal damage were exceeded for all but one of the sources when the light probe is in contact with the retina for 1 second.. Since there are no retinal phototoxicity thresholds available in literature that are both weighted for wavelength as well as specific for endoillumination during vitreous surgery, we based our calculations for visible light on the guidelines for the intact aphakic eye as provided by the ICNIRP. Thus, the actual thresholds may even be lower since the ...

Human skin is a continual target for chemical toxicity, due to its constant exposure to xenobiotics. The skin possesses a number of protective antioxidant systems, including glutathione and enzymic pathways, which are capable of neutralising reactive oxygen species (ROS). In combination with certain chemicals, the presence of ROS might augment the levels of toxicity, due to photoactivation of the chemical or, alternatively, due to an oxidatively-stressed state in the skin which exisited prior to exposure to the chemical. Bithionol is a phototoxic anti-parasitic compound. The mechanism of its toxicity and the possible methods of protection from its damaging effects have been explored. The capacity of keratinocytes to protect themselves from bithionol and other phototoxic chemicals has been investigated. In addition, the potential of endogenous antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E, to afford protection to the cells, has been evaluated. The intracellular glutathione stores of HaCaT keratinocytes ...

Healthy Skin: Medications and your skin. Certain medications can cause your skin to react when you exposed it to sunlight. These reactions are called drug-induced photosensitivity reactions. They can arise from medications taken by mouth or applied to the skin. These reactions occur when ultraviolet radiation reacts with the drug molecule, inducing mainly 1 of 2 types of photosensitivity reactions: phototoxic and photoallergic reactions.
