Two patients in the symptomatic group reacted to corticosteroids in patch tests, one to betamethasone-17-valerate, Hc-17-B and budesonide, and the other to budesonide and Hc-17-B. The first patient suffered from widespread eczematous dermatitis when using beclomethasone. Fluticasone caused oropharyngeal irritation, hoarseness and shortness of breath. The second patient experienced a severe rash after the fourth budesonide inhalation. She had used various topical corticosteroids for her atopic dermatitis without any side-effects. None of the symptom-free patients showed positive results.

This study investigated endogenous mediators involved in mosquito allergy-associated itching in mice. An intradermal injection of an extract of mosquito salivary gland elicited marked scratching in sensitized mice. The 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor zileuton (100 mg/kg), the 5-lipoxygenase activating peptide inhibitor MK-886 (10 mg/kg), and the glucocorticoid betamethasone 17-valerate (3 mg/kg) inhibited the scratching. The scratching was not affected by the cyclooxygenase inhibitors indomethacin and ketoprofen, the TP prostanoid receptor antagonist SQ-29548, the leukotriene B(4) antagonist ONO-4057, the cysteinyl leukotriene antagonist pranlucast, the leukotriene D(4) antagonist MK-571, the platelet-activating factor antagonist CV-3988, the nitric oxide synthase inhibitor N(G)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester, the H(2) histamine-receptor antagonist cimetidine, the H(1) histamine-receptor antagonist terfenadine plus cimetidine, and cypoheptadine that blocks the 5-HT(1/2) serotonin receptors. Zileuton (100 mg/kg) inhibited the increased activity of the cutaneous nerve branch induced by an intradermal injection of the extract, suggesting the peripheral action. Zileuton and MK-886 (10 and 100 microM) did not affect high K(+)-induced increase in intracellular Ca(2+) concentration in cultured dorsal root ganglion neurons. The results suggest that 5-lipoxygenase metabolite(s) other than leukotriene B(4) and cysteinyl leukotrienes are involved in mosquito allergy-associated itching.

The theraprutic efficacy of inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate and inhaled betamethasone valerate in chronic asthma has been studied in 14 treatment centres in 158 patients who had previously been taking prednisone tablets regularly. Doses of 400 mug daily of beclomethasone dipropionate and a dose of 800 mug daily of betamethasone valerate allowed approximately 80% of patients to discontinue prednisone initially and 60% to remain off daily prednisone for 24 weeks. A mean reduction in daily prednisone dose of 8 mg was achieved by patients inhaling corticosteroids whilst placebo inhaler permitted a 5 mg reduction. The three inhaled corticosteroid preparations were equally effective in facilitating prednisone reduction and provided equally good control of asthma, alone or as an ancillary to prednisone. The higher dose of beclomethasone dipropionate was superior to the lower in permitting more patients to remain off daily prednisone for the period of the trial. Although 82% of patients recovered a normal adrenal response to tetracosactrin 24 weeks after prednisone was discontinued and inhaled corticosteroids subsituted, 18% still showed some suppression of adrenal function. There was no significant difference between the treatment groups in this.

39 patients with bilateral dermatoses, mainly psoriasis vulgaris and atopic dermatitis, were treated with 0.1% Ro 12-7024 ointment and 0.1% betamethasone valerate ointment according to a double-blind, right-left, randomized design. Treatment lasted up to 4 weeks. 5 patients did not complete the trial. Assessment of efficacy, expressed as degree of healing in percent of treated skin area and according to an overall assessment of efficacy made by both physician and patient only revealed marginal, mostly statistically insignificant differences, with a trend in favor of betamethasone. Patients' preferences for one of the two treatments favored betamethasone valerate in 17 cases and Ro 12-7024 in 5 cases; 13 cases were ties (p less than 0.001). With the exception of one case of bilateral erythema and itching no side effects were reported. The efficacy of the D-homosteroid Ro 12-7024 is evidently of the same order as that of the group III steroid betamethasone valerate, and the tolerance of the two ointments is good and equal.

In a randomised, double-blind clinical trial, the relative efficacy of Locoid scalp lotion and Betnovate scalp application was assessed in the treatment of 30 patients, 15 in each treatment group, suffering from seborrhoeic or atopic dermatitis of the scalp. Both therapies produced a statistically significant improvement and clearance of the lesions by the end of the four weeks of treatment. Slight differences were observed in favour of Betnovate with respect to global efficacy but this difference was not statistically significant. Side-effects were not spontaneously complained of by any of the 30 patients but six admitted experiencing a stinging or burning sensation (four with Locoid and two with Betnovate) when asked specifically as to the occurrence of these side-effects.

Poor adherence with therapy is a major cause of treatment failure in atopic dermatitis. Reasons given are multifactorial, and include fear of real or imaginary side-effects, under-prescribing, failure to renew prescriptions on time, lack of time, and child refusal of therapy. Most important, however, is lack of knowledge about treatment, in particular the use of topical corticosteroid (TCS) therapy. We conducted a questionnaire-based study to determine the level of use and knowledge of commonly prescribed TCS preparations amongst parents or carers of 100 children attending paediatric outpatient clinics. Weakly potent TCSs were the most commonly used (86%), but poorly understood. Only 35 (41%) who had used hydrocortisone were aware that it was weakly potent, and 44% graded it as moderately potent. Of 65 who had used the moderately potent TCS clobetasone butyrate 0.05% (Eumovate); Glaxo Wellcome, Uxbridge, UK), 19 (29%) graded it as potent and eight (12%) as weak. Of 50 who had used betamethasone valerate 0.1% (Betnovate); Glaxo Wellcome, Uxbridge, UK), 42% did not grade it as potent. Understanding of TCS/antimicrobial combinations was generally worse. The hydrocortisone 1%/fusidic acid 2% combination (Fucidin H(R); Leo, Risborough, Bucks, UK) was graded as moderate or strong by 88% of the 74 who had used it. Over half (53%) of the 34 using the combination of clobetasone butyrate 0.05%/nystatin 100000 i.u./g tetracycline 3% (Trimovate); Glaxo Wellcome, Uxbridge, UK) assumed that it was a potent TCS. Forty-nine had used Fucibet (betamethasone valerate 0.1%, fusidic acid 2%; Leo, Risborough, Bucks, UK) but 34.5% did not grade it as potent. There was poor knowledge of the strengths of some of the most commonly used TCSs, and all steroid/antimicrobial combinations were perceived as being of greater potency than the constituent steroid alone. Fusidic acid was thought to be a steroid by almost half (46.9%) of the respondents. The packaging of the different products by some pharmaceutical companies is remarkably similar and labelling contains information on the compound and percentage rather than potency of the TCS. This may be a source of confusion. We recommend that manufacturers clearly label TCS products by potency as mild, moderate, potent or very potent and that packaging is sufficiently different for each strength of TCS or emollient to avoid confusion. In order to achieve optimal topical treatment for atopic dermatitis, patients and their carers must receive adequate information and training in how and when to use topical therapies in conjunction with written care plans.

The rate of relapse after dithranol therapy is significantly less that when betamethasone valerate under occlusion is combined with ditrhanol in the treatment of psoriasis. It is also argued that local steroids are inferior to deithranol in the management of psoriasis.

betnovate s review

The effect of long-term topical application of corticosteroids on human cutaneous mast cells was examined. Two potent corticosteroids, clobetasol-17-propionate and fluocinonide, produced a greater than 85% decrease in histamine content over a 6-wk treatment period, whereas betamethasone valerate, a less potent corticosteroid, produced a 66% decrease. Electron microscopic examination of the biopsies taken from sites after 6 wk of treatment indicate that the reduced levels of histamine were caused by the depletion of mast cells, as evidenced by: the inability to identify any cells representative of mast cells by detailed electron microscopy of the biopsies; and the marked acellularity around the vasculature where mast cells are certain to be detected. Histamine levels did not begin to decline until after 3 wk of corticosteroid treatment, indicating that corticosteroids are not immediately harmful to mast cells. Electron microscopic examination of biopsies taken at the beginning of treatment and 1 wk later showed normal-appearing mast cells, whereas at 3 wk, a small population of mast cells was detected with features usually associated with degenerating or dying cells. These observations suggest that protracted application of corticosteroids to skin is toxic to mast cells. After discontinuation of treatment, the drug-related atrophy associated with chronic application of potent corticosteroids to skin is rapidly reversed, and skin structure returns to near normal by 14 days. Over this time period, however, histamine levels did not increase and mature mast cells could not be observed by electron microscopy. At 14 days post-steroid treatment, the first signs of cells containing sparse amounts of granules having the characteristics of mast cell granules were seen. We interpret this to represent new mast cells beginning to mature in the skin. By 3 mo, histamine levels returned to normal, demonstrating the reversibility of the steroid-induced mast cell depletion. The studies presented here establish the deleterious effects of long-term topical corticosteroid treatment on cutaneous mast cells, and begin to establish a system in which the development of mast cells in tissue can be investigated.

Twenty patients with seborrhoeic dermatitis were included in this study, 11 patients in the pimecrolimus 1% cream group and nine patients in the betamethasone 17-valerate 0.1% cream group. Patients were instructed to use a thin layer of the study products twice daily at the lesional area and to discontinue treatment as soon as symptoms were absent. Clinical measures assessed were erythema, scaling and pruritus which were evaluated using a four-point scale (0-3).

A clear dose-response relationship for SDZ ASM 981 was evident, with 0.2%, 0.6% and 1.0% SDZ ASM 981 creams all being significantly more effective than vehicle (P = 0.041, 0.001 and 0.008, respectively) in terms of baseline to end-point changes in the Eczema Area Severity Index (EASI) and pruritus score. The 1.0% cream was the most effective SDZ ASM 981 concentration. BMV was more effective than the SDZ ASM 981 creams tested in this study. It appears that the efficacy plateau was not reached with the SDZ ASM 981 creams within 3 weeks treatment. SDZ ASM 981 was well tolerated. Burning or a feeling of warmth were the only adverse events reported more frequently in the 0.6% and 1.0% SDZ ASM 981 treatment groups than in the vehicle treatment group (42.9%, 48.9% and 34.9%, respectively). Few systemic adverse events were reported during the study (headache was the most frequent systemic event reported by 15 of 252 patients) and none was considered to be related to treatment. The local tolerability profile of the 1.0% cream was similar to that of the lower concentrations.

Pimecrolimus (SDZ ASM 981), an ascomycin derivative, is one of the new classes of immunomodulating macrolactams and was specifically developed for the treatment of inflammatory skin diseases. The interest in pimecrolimus has been substantial because of its significant anti-inflammatory activity and immunomodulatory capabilities and its low systemic immunosuppressive potential. The mechanism of action of pimecrolimus is the blockage of T cell activation. Pimecrolimus (like all ascomycins) is an immunophilin ligand, which binds specifically to the cytosolic receptor, immunophilin macrophilin-12. This pimecrolimus-macrophilin complex effectively inhibits the protein phosphatase calcineurin, by preventing calcineurin from dephosphorylating the nuclear factor of activated T cells (NF-AT), a transcription factor. This results in the blockage of signal transduction pathways in T cells and the inhibition of the synthesis of inflammatory cytokines, specifically Th1- and Th2-type cytokines. Pimecrolimus has also been shown to prevent the release of cytokines and pro-inflammatory mediators from mast cells. Several studies have evaluated the effectiveness of pimecrolimus as a treatment for skin diseases. In animal models of allergic contact dermatitis, topical pimecrolimus was found to be effective. In human studies of allergic contact dermatitis pimecrolimus demonstrated significantly more efficacy than the control treatment. As well, the effectiveness of pimecrolimus 0.6% cream was comparable to 0.1% betamethasone-17-valerate; however, pimecrolimus was not associated with any of the side effects characteristic of a topical steroid. Topical application of pimecrolimus is not associated with skin atrophy. Pimecrolimus is effective and safe in both children and adults with atopic dermatitis. When pimecrolimus 1% cream has been applied to adult atopics, improvement has been observed as early as the first week, with a 72% reduction in severity after 3 weeks. Pharmacokinetic studies have shown very low blood levels of pimecrolimus following topical application, with no accumulation after repeated applications. Following application of pimecrolimus cream occasional transient irritation may be experienced at the application site. Similar results have also been found in children aged 3 months and older following application of pimecrolimus 1% cream. Topical pimecrolimus in psoriasis appears to exhibit a dose-dependent therapeutic effect under semi-occlusive conditions. Pimecrolimus has an enormous potential as a new treatment of inflammatory skin diseases. It has been shown to be effective in atopic and allergic contact dermatitis, with a favorable adverse-effects profile, which includes little effect on the systemic immune response.

Bi-Nerisone cream and a control preparation, also in the form of a cream, have been clinically tested on 343 patients by means of a double blind study. Equilvalent results were obtained without registering any significant statistical differences, a finding, however, proving to be of great importance as Bi-Nerisone only contains two active substances (Diflucortolone valerat + Chlorquinaldol), whereas the control preparation contains a total of four (Betamethasone valerate + Gentamycin + Tolnaftate + Clioquinol).

The tremendous advances in treatment brought about by corticotherapy applied to cutaneo-mucosal pathology should not be allowed to obscure the fact that its action is merely palliative, that it should only be proceeded with after careful diagnosis and that it may trigger undesirable side-effects. General corticotherapy is definitely indicated in certain serious dermatoses (e.g. pemphigus vulgaris) in large doses at the beginning of the course of treatment which often has to be kept up indefinitely; it is in these patients that the most serious accidents occur. It is also indicated buy betnovate online in other dermatoses (e.g. lichen planus) in smaller doses and in separate courses, generally triggering incidents and accidents of a less serious nature which to a certain extent seem to be attenuated by taking the drug on alternate days. It is counter-indicated in one particular condition: psoriasis. Corticotherapy by intra- and sub-lesional local injection is most useful in the treatment of certain localised skin lesions (e.g. cheloids) and of the oral mucosa (e.g. erosive lichen planus). Either a few drops are injected or a larger quantity in a suspension of microcrystals. Complications have sometimes been observed in the skin (leukoderma, dermoepidermatrophia and, particularly, amaurosis), but never so far after sub-mucosal injections. Local corticotherapy by external application, very widely used in the form of ointments, creams and lotions for numerous cutaneous conditions may cause various more or less serious local side-effects, the systemic effects with depression of the hypophyso-adrenal axis, only seem to occur to any extent with occlusive dressings. It can also be used in the treatment of some conditions of the oral mucosa (e.g. some forms of lichen planus, benign mucous membrane pemphigoid) by means of either a corticosteroid incorporated into a special excipient which adheres to the mucous membrane or in tablets of 17-betamethasone valerate which gradually break up in the saliva. With the usual posology of 10 tablets of 0.1 mg per day, even over several months, there are no systemic effects, 17-betamethasone valerate (unlike phosphate) having an action which is primarily topic and being practically unabsorbed as has been shown by assessment of plasmatic cortisol.

Aspects of the biotransformation and pharmacodynamics of the novel glucocorticoid resocortol butyrate (RCB) and its metabolites were assessed in vitro and in vivo in comparison buy betnovate online with selected reference compounds. The main route of biotransformation of ((3)H)-RCB in the skin and the liver was 5alpha-reduction of the A-ring followed by reduction of the 3-carbonyl group. In the liver, metabolism was much more rapid than in the skin and 5beta-reduction also occurred. RCB had a relative binding affinity for the glucocorticoid receptor similar to that of triamcinolone acetonide, about 1.5 times that of dexamethasone, three times that of betamethasone valerate (BMV) and 10-14 times that of cortisol. The metabolites of RCB displayed only low to very low affinities for the receptor. The suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis was investigated in placebo- and positive-controlled studies in dogs by measurement of basal and corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) stimulated plasma cortisol concentrations. The AUC of the plasma cortisol vs. time curve following CRH stimulation, a measure of adrenal suppression, was reduced significantly after topical application of BMV compared with the pretreatment values. The AUC in the RCB group was not reduced significantly. Adrenocorticotrophic hormone concentrations were not affected. Oral administration of RCB did not suppress adrenocortical function, whereas BMV induced almost complete suppression of basal and CRH-induced cortisol concentrations. The pharmacodynamics of RCB makes it a relatively safe glucocorticosteroid for topical application.

The dorsal resting hair of C3H mice at various ages was shaved, thus activating the hair into the anagen stage. New hair growth after shaving was not uniform in the various age groups. Furthermore, an increasing delay in hair regrowth was observed as the mice became older (20, 66, 188, and 312 days). In the biochemical analysis of hair regrowing and nongrowing skins after shaving, activities of ornithine decarboxylase, transglutaminase, and alkaline phosphatase had higher values in the extract of the hair regrowing area compared with that in the nongrowing area. In studying the effects of various physical and chemical treatments on hair growth after shaving, repeated shaving was in itself clearly shown to stimulate hair growth. Amongst all of the treatments that were applied, topical application of TPA was most able to accelerate hair regrowth, followed by UV irradiation buy betnovate online and retinoic acid treatment. Suppression of hair regrowth was observed in PUVA, DHT, and estradiol; and complete inhibition was seen in the animals treated with betamethasone valerate. In biochemical studies, a relatively good correlation was observed between the rate of hair regrowth and skin ODC activities after treatment.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) skin has a defective barrier function as indicated by increased transepidermal water loss (TEWL). In order to test potential new formulations for AD, it was our aim to develop a skin permeation model simulating AD skin by inducing Lipitor 8 Mg barrier impairment to otherwise healthy skin simulating the barrier properties of AD skin as evaluated by TEWL measurements. Pig ear skin was mounted to Franz-type diffusion cells. Skin barrier impairment was induced by tape strippings. As the number of strips increased, higher TEWL values were obtained. By performing 25 tape strippings, the TEWL value within the range reported for involved skin of AD patients was reached. The in vitro skin permeation of fusidic acid and betamethasone-17-valerate was found to correlate with the number of tape strippings used to remove stratum corneum cell layers. A comparison of the permeability of fusidic acid and betamethasone-17-valerate from Fucicort cream to a new Fucicort Lipid formulation was studied with intact (0 strippings) and barrier-impaired skin simulating involved AD skin (25 strippings). As opposed to intact skin, no statistically significant difference through barrier-impaired skin was found for fusidic acid and betamethasone-17-valerate for the two formulations. This is in accordance with the clinical results of an international multicentre study and thus confirms the predictability of the model.

In a double-blind controlled crossover trial of inhaled disodium cromoglycate and beclomethasone dipropionate in juvenile asthma, beclomethasone produced higher therapeutic scores but significantly so in only two indices--wheeze-free days and morning peak flow rates. Combined treatment offered no advantage over beclomethasone alone. No side-effects were noted. The findings confirm other studies of cromoglycate and a steroid aerosol (betamethasone 17-valerate) but Aricept Memory Drug disagree with the only other comparative trial of cromoglycate and beclomethasone, in which both were found equally effective.

Calcipotriol and corticosteroids, two therapy modalities frequently prescribed in the treatment of psoriasis, are often used in combination. The aim of the present study was to determine whether the cell biological response pattern of concurrent use of calcipotriol and corticosteroids is different from calcipotriol monotherapy. Forty patients with chronic plaque psoriasis were divided at random in four parallel groups and treated for 8 weeks with: (1) calcipotriol cream (50 micrograms/g once daily); (2) calcipotriol cream twice daily; (3) calcipotriol and clobetasone 17-butyrate (0.5 mg/g) creams; and (4) calcipotriol and betamethasone 17-valerate (1 mg/g) creams. Before and after treatment keratotome biopsies were taken and single cell suspensions prepared for flow cytometric analysis. Flow cytometric multiparameter quantification of markers for proliferation (TO-PRO-3), differentiation (antikeratin 10) and inflammation (antivimentin) was used to evaluate all four therapy modalities. A statistically significant decrease of the percentage of basal cells in S- and G2M-phase (proliferation) was obtained with all therapy modalities, except for calcipotriol monotherapy applied once daily. A significant reduction of the number of vimentin-positive cells (non-keratinocytes) was observed following combined treatment with calcipotriol and clobetasone butyrate. In contrast, monotherapy with calcipotriol had virtually no effect on the number of vimentin-positive cells. It can be concluded that: (i) calcipotriol monotherapy, applied once daily was less antiproliferative compared with twice daily applications of calcipotriol or the combined treatment with corticosteroids and that (ii) the combination of calcipotriol Risperdal Online and corticosteroids proved to have a marked effect on the percentage of non-keratinocytes, in contrast to the modest effect of calcipotriol.

The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities of two topical creams, one containing halcinonide, neomycin and nystatin (HNN), and the other betamethasone valerate, gentamicin, iodochlorhydroxyquin and tolnaftate (BGI), were compared in a randomized, parallel study of 154 patients (eighty-seven secondarily infected eczematous dermatoses; sixty-seven cutaneous candidiasis). Repeated clinical assessments showed that the two creams produced equivalent therapeutic responses both in patients with infected eczematous lesions and candidiasis. HNN and BGI creams eradicated the bacterial pathogens isolated prior to treatment in 80% and 76%, respectively, of the patients with eczematous dermatoses. The organism most frequently isolated in these patients was S. aureus. Local irritation prompting Cialis 60mg Online discontinuance of therapy occurred in just one patient receiving HNN, and two patients receiving BGI.

Topical vitamin D analogues offer a new, effective, more convenient and generally well-tolerated option for the treatment of psoriasis. Only psoriasis vulgaris has been intensively studied, but other forms of the disease may also respond. Both calcitriol and calcipotriol have been shown to be effective in numerous clinical trials, and the latter has compared well with betamethasone valerate and short-contact dithranol in controlled studies. Their mechanism of action is not yet fully understood and may prove complex. The most important effect may be a direct regulation of keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation. However, these compounds also have potent immunological properties, and may act by inhibition of cytokine production by keratinocytes or lymphocytes. Topical application of vitamin D analogues appears generally to be remarkably safe, but hypercalcaemia and hypercalciuria may develop if large quantities are used.

The effect of inhibitors on the inflammatory oedema elicited by medium-wave ultraviolet radiation (UVB) and long-wave ultraviolet radiation (UVA) in combination with chlorpromazine has been studied in the mouse, by means of a quantitative technique. Inhibition of the UVB reaction was observed with indomethacin, acetylsalicylic acid and betamethasone valerate, whereas the latter compound only was effective in the phototoxic state. No inhibition was obtained with hydrocortisone, phenylbutazone, epsilon-aminocaproic acid, polyphloretin phosphate, clemastin, alpha-tocopherol or ascorbic acid. With indomethacin and betamethasone valerate there was no inhibition at high doses when the compound was administered before UVB irradiation. These results are in accordance with a proposed central role for the prostaglandins in UVB inflammation. It is suggested that the phototoxic reaction to chlorpromazine may not be due to mediator action but rather to the effect of toxic photoproducts.

Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin disease, characterized by epidermal hyperplasia, immune cell infiltration, increased dermal angiogenesis and local up-regulation of a variety of inflammatory mediators. Psoriasis is thought to be driven primarily by CD4(+) T cells with a T(h)1 and/or T(h)17 phenotype. Transgenic keratin 14 (K14)/vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mice have previously been reported to develop a psoriasis-like phenotype. The aim of this study was to further characterize the model for validation as an in vivo screening model of psoriasis. Inflammation was induced in the ear skin with five topical applications of 12-O-tetradecanoyl phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and a significantly increased inflammation was found in TPA-induced K14/VEGF transgenic animals compared with wild-type mice. The amount of VEGF in the ear tissue was significantly elevated resulting in increased dermal angiogenesis. Furthermore, intense epidermal hyperplasia, CD3(+) infiltration and significantly increased amounts of (TNF) tumor necrosis factor alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6, IL-12/23p40, IL-12p70, IL-22 and IL-17 were detected in the inflamed ear skin. This cytokine profile strongly suggests a T(h)17-mediated inflammation. All findings were a result of induced over-expression of VEGF. Topical treatment with betamethasone-17-valerate (BMS) significantly reduced ear skin inflammation and epidermal hyperplasia and also decreased the CD3(+) infiltration. In conclusion, the TPA-induced phenotype in K14/VEGF animals displayed several features of psoriasis, including a T(h)17 cytokine profile and a chronic-like progression, and can be used as an in vivo screening model of psoriasis.
