Laser-assisted drug delivery for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia: ablative laser fractional photothermolysis to enhance cutaneous topical delivery of platelet-rich plasma - with or without concurrent bimatoprost and/or minoxidil.

In conclusion, to potentially maximize the stimulation of hair growth, laser assisted drug delivery of platelet-rich plasma - with or without bimatoprost and/or minoxidil - should be considered in patients with androgenetic alopecia in order to effectively deliver the agents to the dermis where the bulge area of the hair follicles is located.

In the minutes after block 4 of the nuclear power plant in Chernobyl exploded, no one knew that they are experiencing a disaster that never happened anywhere before on planet Earth. The public health, environmental, and even the socio-political consequences were disastrous and we can still experience the negative impacts. That’s why we posed the question of what public health authorities, as well as individuals, can do to mitigate the consequences of radiation exposure, and what digital technologies are available for radiation detection. In this respect, after our investigations, it even turned out that it would be b...

Abstract Albendazole is used as a typical antiparasitic agent worldwide. The side effects of albendazole may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dizziness, headache, alopecia, and increased liver enzymes. Mild elevation of the liver enzyme has been reported in more than 10% of cases, but drug induced liver injury was reported to be very rare. A 30-year-old woman visited the Dong-A University Hospital with anorexia, nausea, jaundice, and elevated liver enzyme. For diagnosis, other acute hepatitis etiologies were excluded, but the prophylactic administration of albendazole was verified. This paper introduces a...

AbstractIncreases in cancer diagnosis have tremendous negative impacts on patients and their families, and major societal and economic costs. The beneficial effect of chemotherapeutic agents on tumor suppression comes with major unwanted side effects such as weight and hair loss, nausea and vomiting, and neuropathic pain. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN), which can include both painful and non-painful symptoms, can persist 6  months or longer after the patient’s last chemotherapeutic treatment. These peripheral sensory and motor deficits are poorly treated by our current analgesics with limited ...

Conclusion: 212Pb-octreotate therapy has shown a favorable safety profile at the current dose level. The full evaluation of the safety and clinical efficacy are still in progress. The high LET of decay products of 212Pb combined with the high SSTR-affinity of octreotate analog has the capacity to induce the irreversible damage of DNA in cancer cells and potentially improve the efficacy of this treatment over existing FDA approved options available for NETs patients.

CONCLUSION: HRQoL is significantly more impaired in newly diagnosed female patients with MF/SS and in those with alopecia. As Skindex-29 does not include existential questions on cancer which may cause additional worry and distress, a comprehensive validated CTCL specific questionnaire is urgently needed to more accurately assess disease-specific HRQoL among these patients.

Conclusions: This study demonstrated a rapid improvement of many symptoms in the subacute post-operative period in pituitary tumor patients. Disturbed sleep was identified as the only symptom to worsen post-operatively, encouraging potential prospective interventions to improve sleep, and subsequently improve the QOL in pituitary tumor patients following surgical intervention. Introduction Pituitary tumors are relatively rare primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adults (1) but make up 10% of all neurosurgical interventions in the United States (2). They are often an incidental finding in autopsies and brain...
