This study aims to provide a critical analysis of the available evidence to evaluate the effectiveness of the current risk management programs.
In this study, we assess safety, efficacy, and anti-aging endpoints of an OTC 3-step anti-acne skin regimen in a population of adult women with AV.
It's long been known that the highly effective acne medication isotretinoin is tied to the risk of severe birth defects. But even with a special program in place to prevent conception in women taking the drug, each year 200 to 300 women in the U.S. become pregnant while taking it, a new study shows.Reuters Health Information
MONDAY, July 22, 2019 -- Hundreds of pregnancies still occur every year among U.S. women taking an acne medication that carries a high risk of birth defects, a new study finds. " While the number of pregnancies among patients taking isotretinoin is...
Even with a special program in place to prevent conception in women taking Accutane , each year up to 300 women in the U.S. become pregnant while taking it, researchers find.
(Reuters Health) - It's long been known that the highly effective acne medication isotretinoin - marketed as Accutane and Roaccutane - is tied to the risk of severe birth defects. But even with a special program in place to prevent conception in women taking the drug, each year two to three hundred women in the U.S. become pregnant while taking it, a new study shows.
Νon-classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (NCCAH) is considered to be a common monogenic inherited disease, with an incidence range from 1:500 to 1:100 births worldwide. However, despite the high incidence, there is a low genotype-phenotype correlation, which explains why NCCAH diagnosis is usually delayed or even never carried out, since many patients remain asymptomatic or are misdiagnosed as suffering from other hyperandrogenic disorders. For affected adolescent and adult women, it is crucial to investigate any suspicion of NCCAH and determine a firm and accurate diagnosis. The Synacthen test is a prerequisite in ...
ConclusionThe existing studies do not allow a robust evidence-based recommendation for the use of antiandrogens in the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa. Further randomized controlled trials are needed to define the role of hormonal treatment as an alternative or concomitant therapy together with antibiotics or biologics.
In this study, vaginal microbiome was divided in five biotypes, being four of them dominated by lactobacilli and considered as healthy (pH 5.0) and higher diversity. In a healthy status, microbiota is balanced and forms a stable ecological unit dominated by Lactobacillus species, which fixes pH below 5.0 and controls non-desirable groups. In a pathogenic process, the microbiome shifts to a dysbiotic state, in which lactobacilli drop, pH is increased to values above 4.5 and other groups such as Gardnerella, Atopobium, Prevotella, and Streptococcus, among others, can overgrow (Srinivasan et al., 2012). Short chain fatty acid...
In conclusion, 46, XX virilised females should be examined in terms of aromatase deficiency once congenital adrenal hyperplasia has been excluded, even if no history of maternal virilisation during pregnancy is present. PMID: 30968679 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
