2.Is Oral Chinese Herbal Medicine Beneficial for Psoriasis Vulgaris? A Meta-Analysis of Comparisons with Acitretin.
Zhang CS1, Yang L2, Zhang AL1, May BH1, Yu JJ2, Guo X2, Lu C2, Xue CC1,2. J Altern Complement Med. 2016 Mar;22(3):174-88. doi: 10.1089/acm.2014.0212. Epub 2016 Feb 26.
BACKGROUND: Psoriasis vulgaris is a chronic disease that significantly affects patient's quality of life and poses an economic burden. Acitretin is a second-generation retinoid used for psoriasis in clinical practice. Orally administered Chinese herbal medicine (CHM), alone or combined with acitretin, has been used for the clinical management of psoriasis vulgaris. This systematic review evaluates the efficacy of oral CHM in comparison with acitretin and the add-on effect of oral CHM to acitretin.
3.Effect of retinoic acid on aquaporin 3 expression in keratinocytes.
Xing F1, Liao W1, Jiang P1, Xu W1, Jin X1. Genet Mol Res. 2016 Mar 11;15(1). doi: 10.4238/gmr.15016951.
To explore the possible mechanism of the third-generation retinoic acid drugs (isotretinoin, acitretin, adapalene) in inducing skin and mucosa dryness and rhagades; specifically, mechanism by which these drugs influence keratinocyte cell culture models in vitro (HaCaT) and aquaporin channel (AQP3) protein expression was investigated. Isotretinoin, acitretin, and adapalene were applied to human keratinocyte HaCaT cells. Immunohistochemistry, reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, and western blotting were used to detect their effects on AQP3 expression in HaCaT cells at different concentrations (0.000, 0.001, 0.010, 0.060, and 0.100 mg/mL) or different at times (0, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h). At 0.010 mg/mL, maximal AQP3 expression was observed in HaCaT cells; this was significantly higher than the expressions at the other concentrations (P < 0.05). After treatment with isotretinoin, acitretin, or adapalene at 0.010 mg/mL for 12 h, the expression of AQP3 was the highest in the isotretinoin group, followed by the acitretin group, with the lowest expression in the adapalene group.
4.The effect of oral isotretinoin on visual contrast sensitivity and amount of lacrimation in patients with acne vulgaris.
Polat M1, Kükner Ş2. Cutan Ocul Toxicol. 2016 Feb 24:1-4. [Epub ahead of print]
CONTEXT: Acne vulgaris is a puberty-onset chronic inflammatory disease of the pilosebaceous unit. Isotretinoin is a derivative of vitamin A commonly used for severe and nodulocystic acne. While isotretinoin has many side effects related to the eye, visual system and lacrimation, there is no information regarding isotretinoin's influence on contrast sensitivity.
