PUVA is a form of repigmentation therapy where a type of medication called psoralen is given before exposure to ultraviolet light A (thus the name PUVA). It is generally used for people with more extensive Vitiligo (affecting greater than 20% of the body), and is the mainstay of treatment for Vitiligo patients. Psoralen makes the skin very sensitive to light. Combined with UVA, it stimulates the production of the pigment melanin in the skin. Basically, it serves to help the patient tan faster in a small amount of time. PUVA therapy has a 50-70% chance of returning color on the face, trunk, and upper arms and legs, whereas hands and feet respond poorly ...
Studies during Photochemotherapy of Psoriasis. This study also shows the importance of pharmacokinetics in the therapy management of poor responders to PUVA.

Vitiligo is a condition of the skin that causes patches of the skin to have all pigmentation removed. Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition commonly treated with two different forms of light therapy. Learn about one form of therapy, PUVA, and its effectiveness for vitiligo below.
Palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP) is a chronic recurrent skin condition characterized by the presence of pustules, erythema and hyperkeratosis on palms and soles. PPP can be a severe and disabling disease limiting the ability to walk or work. Although studies on the quality of life of patients with PPP are not available, a recent investigation showed that palmoplantar psoriasis (non pustular) has a more important impact on quality of life than plaque psoriasis. This important impact on quality of life is not surprising as palmoplantar psoriasis as well as palmoplantar pustulosis may limit the ability to work or conduct activities with hands or even impair walking. The disease is sometimes associated with psoriasis elsewhere on the body. Current treatments for PPP include topical corticosteroids, cyclosporine, PUVA therapy, methotrexate and acitretin. Response to topical corticosteroids and PUVA therapy is often disappointing presumably because the thickness of the stratum corneum on palms and soles ...
Extracorporeal photochemotherapy (ECP) is a therapeutic procedure which combines leukapheresis and PUVAtherapy (psoralen plus UVA radiation). This novel form of cell therapy consists of collection of mononuclear cells and their irradiation with UVA in the presence of a photoactivable molecule (8-methoxypsoralen), before being reinfused. ECP was developed to induce a modulation of immune response similar to that observed after in vivo phototherapy. The photophoresis procedure requires three steps including white blood cells collection, and the precise control of psoralen concentration and UVA dose. Advantages and inconvenients of the two ECP procedures available for human use are respectively discussed. Mechanisms of action of ECP are currently incompletely defined and different hypotheses are suggested. On the molecular level, DNA, cell membrane, and cytoplasm are involved in the biologic effects of EPC. The therapeutic effect of ECP is likely induced by the combination of different bi ological ...

Phototherapy with photochemotherapy (PUVA) is a well-known and well-studied modality for the treatment of psoriasis, which involves systemic or topical administration of chemicals known as psoralens and administration of ultraviolet light in increasing dosages after requisite time gap. PUVA is also used in the treatment of widespread vitiligo with moderately good results, though it is being surpassed by ultraviolet B (UVB), which is equally or slightly more efficacious with fewer side effects. PUVA induces repigmentation by varying mechanisms such as stimulation of melanogenesis, immunomodulation and activation of growth factors, though the exact mechanism is still speculative.

Dyshidrosis, is a type of dermatitis, that is characterized by itchy blisters on the palms of the hands and bottoms of the feet. Blisters are generally one to two millimeters in size and heal over three weeks. However, they often recur. Redness is not usually present. Repeated attacks may result in fissures and skin thickening. The cause is unknown. Triggers may include allergens, physical or mental stress, frequent hand washing, or metals. Diagnosis is typically based on what it looks like and the symptoms. Allergy testing and culture may be done to rule out other problems. Other conditions that produce similar symptoms include pustular psoriasis and scabies. Avoiding triggers may be useful as may a barrier cream. Treatment is generally with steroid cream. High strength steroid creams may be required for the first week or two. Antihistamines may be used to help with the itch. If this is not effective steroid pills, tacrolimus, or psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) may be tried. About 1 in 2,000 ...

The effect of arachidonic acid (AA) combined with UVA irradiation was studied in a model system mimicking phototherapy PUVA (psoralen+UVA) ex vivo in vitro. The contribution of damage to the plasma membrane by PUVA was tested on human lymphocytes derived from healthy donors. The effect of arachidonic acid (AA) combined with UVA irradiation was compared with that of a psoralen photoadduct to AA added to the culture. The adduct, obtained photochemically and purified, was characterized by NMR and MS spectrometry as a cycloadduct of psoralen to the vinylene bond of the acid (AA,,PSO). The reactions of cultured cells, manifested 20 h after treatment by changes in apoptosis and mitochondrial depolarization, were monitored by flow cytometry by tagging lymphocytes with appropriate fluorescent probes. Treatment of lymphocyte suspension within AA doses from 40 to 100 μM gradually induced a shift from Anx-V+ (single positive cells) to late apoptotic, Anx-V+PI+ (double positive cells) in a dose dependent ...
BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal photochemotherapy (EPC) has recently been proposed for the treatment of adults with either acute or chronic GVHD. However, data on children given this therapy are scarce. A Phase I-II study was carried out on EPC in children experiencing GVHD after allogeneic transplantation of HPCs.. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: Nine patients with steroid-resistant, grade II-IV acute GVHD and 14 with chronic GVHD, all of whom had been refractory to at least one line of treatment, were enrolled in this study and analyzed. The median age was 10.3 years (range, 5.4-18.1), and the median body weight was 35 kg (range, 17-89).. RESULTS: Seven of the nine patients with acute GVHD showed a response to EPC, whereas the disease progressed in the remaining two children (both with skin, gastrointestinal, and liver GVHD), and they died of grade IV acute GVHD. Among the seven children who responded to EPC, it was possible to completely discontinue immunosuppressive treatment in three. In the 14 ...
Large plaque parapsoriasis (also known as parapsoriasis en plaques) are skin lesions that may be included in the modern scheme of cutaneous conditions described as parapsoriasis. These lesions, called plaques, may be irregularly round-shaped to oval and are 10 cm (4 in) or larger in diameter. They can be very thin plaques that are asymptomatic or mildly pruritic. Large-plaque parapsoriasis is a common associate of retiform parapsoriasis, can be accompanied by poikiloderma vasculare atrophicans, and can in rare occasions be a precursor to cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Parapsoriasis treatment consists primarily of light therapy (more specifically PUVA therapy or UVB therapy) possibly in combination with topical steroids. Large plaque parapsoriasis is usually a chronic condition that needs long-term treatment.

1 Promotional literature can be a confusing mix of different numbers when trying to compare the effectiveness of psoriasis treatments. Some studies use the PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index ) system, while others use a physician assessment of clearance (sPGA) or disease resolution. In the studies that use both metrics, psoriasis clearance is considered to be at least a 75% decrease in PASI score. Since few practitioners use the PASI analysis clinically, clearance rate (sPGA) seems like a more useful comparison tool.. 2 Comparison of clinical efficacy and cost effectiveness of psoralen plus ultraviolet A light phototherapy (PUVA) versus PUVA plus sunlight (PUVASOL) therapy in chronic plaque psoriasis in Indian patients Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Volume 60, Issue 3, Pages AB153-AB153. 3 Palmer, et al.

Research has shown that NB-UVB eyelid phototherapy is a safe and effective treatment and does not penetrate the eyelid. For their patients old enough to understand the importance of keeping the eyes closed, many doctors permit removing the goggles for part of the time to expose depigmented areas around the eyes. Care must be taken however, not to over expose the eyelid, as the very thin skin will not tolerate a high exposure time. Eye protection is always required when using any type of psoralen and/or UVA light, such as with PUVA therapy.. Most topical treatments prescribed for vitiligo can be used on the face; however, care must be taken to prevent them from getting into the eye. Due to their many potential side effects, potent topical steroids are generally not prescribed for use on the face, except for very short periods of time while under careful supervision of the prescribing physician. Monobenzone for depigmentation is generally not used on the face due to the potential for a rash ...

Ultraviolet (UV)A wavelengths stimulate the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that may contribute to photoageing. To protect against oxidative stress, skin cells have developed several defence systems, including ROS and metal ion scavengers and a battery of detoxifying, haem-degrading and repair enzymes. Melatonins antioxidant activity is the result of three different but complementary actions: (i) a direct action due to its ability to act as a free radical scavenger; (ii) an indirect action that is a consequence of melatonins ability to reduce free radical generation (radical avoidance); and (iii) its ability ...

We hypothesized that activated platelets induce monocyte-to-dendritic cell (DC) differentiation. The aims of this study were to: (1) determine the role that platelets play, if any, in the signaling of monocyte to DC differentiation; (2) determine the mechanism of action by which platelets induce monocyte-to-DC differentiation. (3) Use this knowledge to advance cancer immunotherapy. To achieve these ends: (1) parallel-plate flow chambers were designed to deliver monocytes a controlled level of platelet exposure, with phenotype and genotype assessed following overnight incubation; (2) blocking antibodies and proteins were used to assess for the significance of particular monocyte-platelet interactions in the mechanism; (3) additional experiments and mathematical modeling was performed to extrapolate our new mechanistic knowledge to enhance extracorporeal photochemotherapy (ECP), an immunotherapy in clinical use. Results showed direct correlation between platelet exposure and level of DC differentiation
Mycosis fungoides is a distinct variant of cutaneous T cell lymphoma. We describe two male patients presenting with the third stage of the disease at the age of 56 and 67 years. The patients had large, patchy pigmented tumors all over the face and eyelids. Incisional biopsy from the lid skin revealed full-thickness involvement of the dermis by malignant lymphocytes, angiotropism, and rare figures of epidermotropism. Immunohistochemical studies showed that these malignant lympocytes expressed CD2, CD3, CD4, CD5, and CD8 antigens but were negative for CD7 antigen. Multiagent chemotherapy and PUVA treatment were administered with limited successful outcome on their cutaneous lesions. Both patients died from problems related to the progression of the systemic disease. These two cases demonstrate the poor prognosis of the tumor stage because of strong association with widespread systemic involvement and emphasize the need for early diagnosis. ...

My journey started when I was six years old. When I was six I had noticed some white patches on my skin. I then went to a dermatologist, who had found it was vitiligo, an autoimmune disease. I had been through several skin creams, and by the time I was ten I started puva! I started puva and had success. After using that for a while I had noticed some unexplained bruising. The dermatologist recommended that I stop using puva, and that I see a hematologist.. I then went to a hematologist who ran a series of tests. She gave us an idea of what it could be, she said it might be the early stages of lupus. The labs all came back fine. She said whatever it is, it now isnt showing in the lab work and it might come further down the road. By this time I was about 12, I started having some mild joint pains. My family and I had just assumed it was from competitive gymnastics that I had been doing for the last six years. So I just dealt with it.. As years went by, I had later became pregnant.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. and COLLEGEVILLE, Pa., Feb. 7 -- A global Phase 3 study of Enbrel(R) (etanercept) demonstrated that a significant number of psoriasis patients given initial loading doses of ENBREL for three months rapidly achieved psoriasis clearing and then maintained the response while receiving half the drug dose. These data were presented at the American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting in Washington, D.C.. In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 583 patients with moderate to severe psoriasis were randomized to receive placebo (n=193), 25 mg of ENBREL twice weekly (n=196), or a loading dose of 50 mg of ENBREL twice weekly (n=194), for 12 weeks. Following this initial period, patients then continued treatment for an additional 12 weeks. During the second 12 weeks, those taking the loading dose of ENBREL were stepped down to half the dose (25 mg twice weekly), while patients taking 25 mg twice weekly continued with the same dose. Patients initially taking placebo were ...

Results Twenty three patients (13 W/10 M;mean age of 37±12 years) with a mean evolution of psoriasis of 19,9±13.1 years were included. Six patients also had (26%) arthritis. Comparison of clinical and histological parameters at baseline and 6 months of treatment with ADA shown in TABLE. At the baseline visit the following values were significantly higher in skin biopsy with psoriasis than in healthy skin: a) levels of angiogenesis (endothelial area positive-CD31): 2274,2±833,1 vs 810,61±425,2 (p,0.001); b) positive expression of VEGF: 87% vs 8,7% (p,0.001) y c) positive expression of TNFα: 82,6 vs 4,3% (p,0.001). A significant clinical and histological improvement in the expression of TNF, VEGF and angiogenesis was observed after treatment with ADA. The clinical parameters of psoriasis and angiogenesis (VEGF, TNF and CD31) only showed a significant correlation between the improvement in PASI and basal CD31. Thus, patients with lower baseline PASI had a greater response to therapy (r=0,590; ...

Adalimumab (Humira) is a recombinant human monoclonal antibody against tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF- α), which works by blocking the interaction of TNF- α with its cell-surface receptors, thereby limiting the progression of inflammatory pathways. Its use is approved for several autoimmune conditions including chronic plaque psoriasis for which it has been prescribed as a first-line biologic treatment. Increased risks of malignancy, particularly non-melanoma skin cancer and non-CNS lymphomas have been reported with use of this drug, however, there have been no reports of CNS lymphomas.. Here, we report the case of a 43-year old male who presented for evaluation following recent speech difficulty and a generalized tonic-clonic seizure.

SKOKIE, Ill., April 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exicure, a pioneer in developing Spherical Nucleic Acid (SNA™) constructs as gene regulatory and immunotherapeutic agents, today announced the dosing of the first patient in a Phase 1 trial of its AST-005 gel for chronic plaque psoriasis, an inflammatory disease that results in red, scaly patches on the skin.. Current treatments for psoriasis are limited to biologics, which are generally administered systemically, orally administered drugs and a variety of non-drug solutions, including phototherapy, and non-targeted topical treatments. With AST-005, Exicure is taking advantage of the unique ability of SNA constructs to penetrate the skin when applied topically. As a consequence, AST-005 combines the targeted benefits of biologics with the ease of application of topical steroids.. AST-005 is a topically-applied SNA that targets tumor necrosis factor (TNF), a pro-inflammatory cytokine shown to be a key mediator of psoriasis. In preclinical ...

M Harms,. Alopecia areata is a frequent cause of hair loss. The origin of disease is not fully understood. However there are indications for a T-cell mediated autoimmune process. Genetic, immunologic and psychologic factors are important for the outbreak of disease. Most patients show localized patches of acute hair loss, where regrowth is observed spontaneously or with simple topical treatment within few months. In up to 15% of patients severe forms of disease can develop with total scalp (alopecia totalis) or scalp and body hair loss (alopecia universalis). There are only few known risk factors for development of a severe form. Although spontaneous remission is possible in these cases, it occurs rarely and treatment is difficult. Multifocal alopecia areata responds to intravenous high-dose corticosteroids. Topical immunotherapy with diphenylcyclopropenone (DPC) or PUVA therapy may be effective in longstanding and widespread disease. The unpredictable course of disease is a major handicap for ...
