Strata Skin Sciences (NSDQ:SSKN) said yesterday it won FDA 510(k) clearance for the Multi-Micro Dose tip designed for use with its Xtrac 308nm excimer laser. The newly cleared tip is indicated for use in conjunction with the Horsham, Penn.-based company’s Xtrac laser system to filter narrow band UVB light at delivery, intended to individualize non-blistering doses during procedures. The MMD tip is designed to apply multiple level doses of energy to the patient’s psoriatic plaque to identify maximum sub-blistering energy dose for treatment zones so that physicians can design an optimal dose for each patient...
The nail is a mirror of our health. Nail dystrophy is very common and associated with various diseases. The causes of nail dystrophies are related to infections (fungus, bacteria, and virus), congenital disorders, environmental inputs (such as trauma and drugs), various cutaneous diseases (psoriasis, lichen planus, eczema, etc), and systemic conditions. A 4-year-old boy visited our clinic with nail dystrophy which started 4 months ago. Nail changes were observed including onycholysis with oil-drop discoloration, superficial fragility and onychomadesis of the proximal nail plate, koilonychia, and onychorrhexis.
We describe 3 pediatric patients who developed paradoxic eczema following cardiac transplantation in infancy while on systemic antirejection therapy including tacrolimus, a drug widely used topically to treat eczema.
Introduction: Emollient therapy is the mainstay for treating dry skin conditions such as atopic eczema and psoriasis. Because there is generally a lack of comparative data on emollient effectiveness, health care professionals choose between them based instead primarily on patient preference and cost. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE, based in the U.K.) has therefore urged more research to be conducted in this area. For this purpose, ex vivo human skin offers an efficient and reliable means of comparing the hydration effects of multiple preparations.
Introduction: The impact of hyperhidrosis on quality of life is comparable to, or greater than, psoriasis or eczema. Glycopyrronium tosylate (GT; formerly DRM04) is a cholinergic receptor antagonist developed for topical application for the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis. ATMOS-1 (NCT02530281) and ATMOS-2 (NCT02530294) were designed to assess the efficacy and safety of GT in patients with primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
Introduction: Intraepidermal nerve fiber (IENF) count in skin biopsies has been used as a reflection of the innervation density of itch-transmitting C nerve fibers in the skin. Changes in IENF densities in pruritic conditions such as eczema and psoriasis has been studied previously, but conflicting results have been reported. In these studies, IENF count is defined as the number of PGP9.5-positive nerve fibers crossing the basement membrane per unit length in 50- μm-thick histologic sections. However, this 2-dimensional approach is limited by the thickness of the section examined.
Eczema, psoriasis, and lupuslike reactions can occur even months after starting or stopping these drugs, so patients need to be monitored on an ongoing basis.Medscape Medical News
