The COS developed by consensus will help reduce the heterogeneity of outcomes measured in interventional trials. This will allow future pooling of outcomes and data for meta-analyses. This project showed the effectiveness of a methodology that could be used for future COS development.
Here, we reported a successful case of dupilumab treatment in combination with ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation therapy, which is well known and effective for chronic itch. The patient had a significant decrease in visual analogue scale (VAS) score and eosinophil after only 1 week of treatment, which may be due to the combination effect
Positive results were reported across trials with 48% of patients treated with roflumilast achieving an Investigator Global Assessment score of clear or almost clear at 8 weeks in phase III studies. Most adverse events were mild or moderate in severity and few application-site reactions were reported among participants. Unique advantages of the cream are its success in treating intertriginous areas and its ability to reduce symptoms of itch, results of which may significantly improve quality of life for patients. In the future, real-world data and active comparator trials with existing non-steroidal agents are needed to better understand roflumilast's place in the current treatment landscape.
A common aetiopathological mechanism for psoriasis and anxiety/depression might be assumed with impact of dermatological treatment on both. The change in perceived stress seems to play an important role in the manifestation of anxiety/depression, substantiating the need for adequate stress management in patients with increased psychosocial stress during their dermatological treatment
Furthermore, the PT MN downregulated the mRNA expression levels of proinflammatory cytokines, including TNF-, IL-1, iNOS, JAK2, JAK3, and STAT3. The results show that the PT MN transdermal co-delivery of Lox and Tof is a new synergetic therapy with high compliance and good therapeutic efficacy for RA
Recently, a phase 3 "FLASH" randomized clinical trial demonstrated the efficacy of topical hypericin PDT for early-stage cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. An update on recent advances of photodynamic therapy in primary cutaneous lymphomas is provided
0001). Complete responses to treatment were associated with no impairments on the dermatology-QoL, no interferences with sleep and activity, and significantly improved capacities to work compared to patients who continued to have signs and symptoms, even for those with minimal disease activity
The final list of 5 main principles and 10 consensus statements identify key indications specific to the use of brodalumab in the treatment of moderate-to-severe psoriasis in Italy. These statements aid dermatologists in the management of patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis
Diagnosing AD is challenging due to broad clinical features, ethnoracial variations and lack of universal diagnostic criteria. Furthermore, lack of physician training, barriers to medication access, and socioeconomic inequalities hinder effective disease management in LA
preoperative values were reversely related to the preoperative concentrations of LTE4 and TXB2. This is the first study to confirm that changes in life quality in PAD patients undergoing endovascular treatment are highly dependent on eicosanoid-based vascular inflammation
The six best neoantigens were selected and formulated into two nanoparticles, with which the immune response ex vivo was evaluated, demonstrating a specific activation of the immune response. This study reinforces the use of bioinformatic tools in vaccine development, as their usefulness is proven both in silico and ex vivo
However, AD patients who carry the ApoE E4 allele and exhibit a high percentage of tortuous capillaries and capillary tortuous numbers have shown better treatment outcomes at six months. Therefore, we believe that physiologic skin testing is a rapid and effective way to screen, monitor progression, and ultimately guide the most appropriate treatment for AD patients
Vismodegib is a safe and effective treatment for locally advanced BCC, and its role in unresectable BCC seems to be an important option in these challenging cases.
This review outlines current and future directions for novel therapies of AD that are currently being investigated in clinical trials, focusing on their mechanisms of action and efficacy. This supports the accumulation of data on advanced treatments for AD in the new era of precision medicine
