These studies explored the effects of oral pharmacological doses of glucocorticoids on the normal small intestine of the adult rat. Short-term (7 days) prednisolone had little effect on mucosal structure or cell kinetics but enhanced the maximum absorptive capacities of the jejunum and ileum for galactose. This was due to an increase in carrier-mediated transport in the individual enterocytes and not to a change in the cell population. Activities of brush border enzymes were elevated and turnover studies indicated an increased rate of synthesis of brush border proteins associated with an enhanced glycoprotein content of the microvillus membrane. Subcellular fractionation studies demonstrated a large increase in the membrane-bound ribosomal RNA content of the enterocytes consistent with an enhanced synthesis of membrane proteins. These findings implicate a direct action of prednisolone on the enterocytes to increase their absorptive and digestive capacities by the induction of specific functional proteins. These effects on the absorptive and digestive functions of the small intestine were sustained with long-term (28 days) prednisolone feeding. An equivalent long-term oral dose of betamethasone-17-valerate, a locally rather than a systemically active glucocorticoid, had a similar effect on the enterocytes. However, an inhibition of crypt cell turnover resulted in a marked hypoplasia and hence no net change in the functional capacity of the mucosa. These findings emphasise the separate and opposing actions of glucocorticoids on the adult mucosa, on the one hand to stimulate enterocyte function, but on the other to reduce the enterocyte population. The predominant activity appears to be a function of each individual steroid. The predominant stimulatory action of prednisolone was further emphasised by investigating the effects of this glucocorticoid on the adapted ileum following jejunal resection. Indeed, short-term prednisolone enhanced the adaptive hyperplasia in the ideal remnant by increasing the functional capacity of the expanded population of enterocytes.

It was observed that the permeation of BM across ASC from all the formulations tested was higher by factors 9.7-27.7 than that from the same formulations permeating through SC, while the permeation sequence of the tested formulations was almost the same for SC and ASC. Afterwards the effect of the dilution of the semisolid formulations containing BM-17-V 0.1% weight on their permeation through SC was examined by mixing them with different ointments and a cream base. The permeation rate of BM from the dilution of Soderm ointment with WO and from WO diluted with different formulations from the German Pharmacopoeia were very similar.

The objective was to compare the in vivo distribution profiles of betamethasone 17-valerate (BMV) across the stratum corneum (SC) following (a) delivery from gelled and un-gelled formulations, and (b) two different skin cleaning procedures at the end of the application period. BMV was dissolved in gelled and un-gelled vehicles comprising either medium chain triglycerides (MCT) or a brand microemulsion (ME). The BMV concentration was adjusted to 80% of saturation and applied to the forearms of healthy volunteers. After 2 h, the treated skin site was cleaned either with a dry paper towel or with an isopropyl alcohol swab, and the SC was then progressively removed by repeated adhesive tape-stripping. BMV distribution profiles across the SC showed reasonable reproducibility, and that delivery from the ME was significantly superior to that from MCT. Gelled vehicles were less efficiently removed from the skin surface by dry wiping than un-gelled formulations. Removing excess formulation more aggressively with isopropyl alcohol resulted in a lower apparent uptake of drug into the SC. Excess gelled formulation may be trapped in the skin 'furrows', and requires an efficient skin cleaning procedure to ensure its complete removal.

Progressive pigmented purpura (Schamberg's disease), a form of purpura pigmentosa chronica, is a lymphocytic capillaritis of unknown etiology and obscure pathogenesis. Our purpose was to assess the expression of cell membrane antigens (CD3, CD4, CD1a, CD36), of adhesion receptors (leukocyte function adhesion 1, LFA-1, endothelial leukocyte adhesion molecule 1, ELAM-1) intercellular adhesion molecule 1, ICAM-1), and the intercellular relationships in the early phase of the disease.

The cosmetic properties of topical formulations are important parameters for the adherence to treatment, where modern oil-in-water emulsions are considered more acceptable compared with ointments. After application of an emulsion to the skin, the concentration of active ingredients in the formulation residue on the skin will increase, due to evaporation of volatile ingredients.

Test areas treated with indomethacin 60 min and 5 min before irradiation showed the significantly lowest visual erythema scores and no significant changes in skin mechanical parameters. At all other test sites, a significant decrease in elasticity parameters (Ue, Ur, Ua/Uf, Ur/Uf) and an increase in viscoelasticity parameters (Uv, Uv/Ue) of the skin were observed. No significant changes of epidermal hydration were found at any of the test sites.

Eosin has a short-term effect similar to topical steroids. The low cost of eosin treatment and its limited collateral effects suggest that eosin could be an effective steroid-sparing agent in the initial phase of psoriasis treatment.

In a double-blind study, topically applied caffeine 30%-hydrocortisone 0.5% in hydrophilic ointment was compared to betamethasone valerate 0.1% cream and to hydrocortisone 0.5% in hydrophilic ointment. Eighty-three patients were evaluated over a three-week period for pruritus, erythema, scaling, lichenification, excoriation, oozing, and global impression. The betamethasone and caffeine-hydrocortisone groups performed significantly better than the hydrocortisone group on three of the seven scales: lichenification, excoriation, and global impression. Also, the betamethasone group differed significantly from the hydrocortisone group on six of the seven scales, but did not differ significantly from the caffeine-hydrocortisone group on any scale. It is suggested that caffeine is effective because it elevates local levels of cyclic adenosine-3',5'-monophosphate by inhibiting phosphodiesterase.

Post-occlusive reactive hyperaemia is the temporary increase of blood flow in a tissue following transient vascular obstruction, and has recently been proposed as an in vivo method for ranking topical corticosteroid potency. We investigated in vivo vascular reactions before and during post-occlusive hyperaemia using laser-Doppler flowmetry and reflectance spectroscopy (RS). RS enables resolution of in vivo erythema into deoxygenated (venous) [DOH] and oxygenated (arterial) haemoglobin (OH) components (expressed in arbitrary units, AU). Using a randomized 24-h occlusive exposure in 10 healthy volunteers the effects of a corticosteroid (betamethasone-17-valerate), a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) [indomethacin], an antihistamine (diphenhydramine), or vehicle, were studied before and during post-occlusive hyperaemia. The 24-h vehicle exposure decreased total haemoglobin (composed of a small increase in OH [P < 0.001] and a greater decrease in DOH [P < 0.005], [OH, 0.23 +/- 0.18 AU; DOH, 0.28 +/- 0.12 AU]). The blood flow increased 7.1% to 28 +/- 8 AU (P > 0.05). Betamethasone-17-valerate exposure decreased total haemoglobin further (OH, 0.10 +/- 0.09 AU [P < 0.005]; DOH, 0.18 +/- 0.08 AU [P < 0.05]), which corresponded to a 15% blood flow decrease (P < 0.05). Indomethacin reduced OH to 0.18 +/- 0.12 AU (P < 0.02) and increased DOH slightly, with a trend towards decreased blood flow (P > 0.05). Diphenhydramine caused no significant changes in RS or laser-Doppler flowmetry readings before post-occlusive hyperaemia. Post-occlusive hyperaemia increased total haemoglobin maximally at the first observation time (OH, 0.63 +/- 0.13 AU; DOH, 0.31 +/- 0.11 AU [P < 0.001]).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

The effects of topical application of glucocorticoids on the epidermal beta-adrenergic adenylate cyclase response were investigated. A significant increase in this receptor response was observed 24 h following topical application of potent glucocorticoid ointments (0.12% betamethasone-17-valerate, 0.05% clobetasol-17-propionate). The application of a relatively weak glucocorticoid, hydrocortisone-17-butyrate, revealed no augmentation effect. There was no significant difference in other adenylate cyclase responses (adenosine-, and histamine-) between control and glucocorticoid-treated epidermis. UVB irradiation is known to augment the beta-adrenergic response of epidermis. Comparison of the effects revealed that topical glucocorticoid treatment had less effect than UVB irradiation, and when the UVB irradiation was combined with glucocorticoid treatment, the beta-adrenergic augmentation effect was not enhanced. Cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase activities were not significantly altered by the glucocorticoid-, UVB-, or combined treatments. Our data indicate that epidermal beta-adrenergic adenylate cyclase response is affected by topical application of 'potent' glucocorticoids in vivo. Although the effect is weaker than that induced by UVB irradiation, we believe the system might be a useful tool for dissecting the glucocorticoidal potency of topical preparations using the epidermal keratinocyte response in vivo.

Ninety-nine patients with secondarily infected eczema were allocated at random to receive 10-days' treatment with either 2% fusidic acid plus 0.1% betamethasone cream or 0.1% gentamicin plus 0.1% betamethasone cream. Both preparations were applied to the lesions twice daily and assessment of the signs and symptoms was carried out before, after 2 to 4 days, and after 7 to 12 days of treatment, severity being rated on a 4-point scale. Bacteriological tests were carried out before and after treatment. The results showed that the combination with fusidic acid was marginally superior in clinical effect. Staphylococcus aureus was the most commonly isolated pathogen from eczematous lesions (86%) and fusidic acid showed the lowest resistance rate (9%), followed by gentamicin (21%). Chloramphenicol, neomycin and tetracycline showed resistance rates from 48% to 59%.

Plasminogen activation is a widely documented physiological phenomenon in which plasminogen activators (mainly urokinase and tissue type plasminogen activator) transform the zymogen plasminogen into the wide-spectrum proteinase plasmin. We show here that psoriatic epidermis is provided with abnormal plasminogen activator activity, mainly dependent on the activity of tissue type plasminogen activator and that this abnormal activity can be reversed with common topical treatments (i.e. anthralin, and 0.1% betamethasone valerate cream). We also report abnormal immunohistochemical localization of plasminogen, urokinase and tissue type plasminogen activator in psoriatic epidermis which returned to normal after the topical treatments. These data suggest a major role of plasminogen activation in the pathogenesis of psoriasis.

Both topical pimecrolimus and topical tacrolimus are more effective than placebo treatments for atopic dermatitis, but in the absence of studies that show long term safety gains, any advantage over topical corticosteroids is unclear. Topical tacrolimus is similar to potent topical corticosteroids and may have a place for long term use in patients with resistant atopic dermatitis on sites where side effects from topical corticosteroids might develop quickly. In the absence of key comparisons with mild corticosteroids, the clinical need for topical pimecrolimus is unclear. The usefulness of either treatment in patients who have failed to respond adequately to topical corticosteroids is also unclear.

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.

Changes in epidermal immunocytes and cytokeratins were investigated during treatment of psoriasis with calcipotriol and betamethasone valerate. Skin biopsies were obtained from 10 subjects on each treatment from lesional and non-lesional skin at baseline, and from treated lesions after 4 weeks. In each subject, changes in expression of cytokeratins K5, K10 and K16, and changes in epidermal immunocyte counts were assessed. Responses were compared with a separate histological parameter of improvement, epidermal thickness. Both treatments produced a marked normalization of cytokeratins. The reduction of K16 expression was similar on each treatment and correlated significantly with reduction in epidermal thickness. Expression of both K5 and K10 improved less than thickness with betamethasone valerate but more than thickness with calcipotriol, although these differences did not reach statistical significance. With calcipotriol there was buy betnovate an increase in K5 and K10 responses with increasing response of epidermal thickness, which was not seen with betamethasone valerate. T6+ cells, HLA-DR+ dendritic cells and T lymphocytes were all reduced by betamethasone valerate. There was a remarkable similarity in the level of normalization between cell types and also between cellular response and reduction in thickness. Calcipotriol produced a similar consistent reduction in cell numbers and in thickness, with the exception of T6+ cells which increased in some subjects during treatment. Only in subjects in whom thickness had virtually returned to normal was there a marked decrease in T6+ cells.

Psoriasis is a chronic relapsing skin disorder that affects about 2% of the U.S. population and involves the scalp approximately 50% of the time. Topical corticosteroids, including betamethasone valerate, have been used effectively in the treatment of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses of the skin and scalp. Betamethasone valerate (BMV) in foam vehicle (Luxiq) is designed to improve patient compliance with topical therapy. Superior efficacy over a buy betnovate BMV lotion preparation has been demonstrated with twice-daily use. Even greater compliance would be expected if the drug is effective with once-daily application.

The effect of pH, media, phosphate concentration and ionic strength on the kinetics of thermal degradation of betamethasone valerate and betamethasone dipropionate has been investigated. A validated HPLC method has been used to determine the parent compounds and their major thermal degradation products identified in the reaction. Betamethasone-17-valerate gave rise to two major products, namely, betamethasone-21-valerate and betamethasone alcohol, and betamethasone dipropionate degraded into three major products, namely, betamethasone-17-propionate, betamethasone-21- Aricept 23 Reviews propionate and betamethasone alcohol, in different media. Betamethasone valerate showed maximum stability at pH 4-5 while betamethasone dipropionate was maximally stable at pH 3.5-4.5. The degradation of betamethasone valerate and betamethasone dipropionate was found to follow first-order kinetics and the apparent first-order rate constants (k(obs)) for thermal degradation in different media range from 0.399-9.07×10(-3) h(-1) and 0.239-1.87×10(-3) h(-1), respectively. The values of the rate constants decrease with increasing solvent polarity, phosphate concentration and ionic strength. The second-order rate constants (k΄) for the phosphate ion inhibited reactions lie in the range of 3.02-1.30×10(-6) M(-1) s(-1).

This thesis describes the methodology and validation of cutaneous microdialysis for the study of skin penetration of various topically applied substances in experimental dermatological research. Microdialysis is a sampling technique which makes it possible to measure substances in the extracellular water space in human and animal skin in vivo. A microdialysis probe, i.e. a tubular semipermeable membrane connected to afferent and efferent tubings, is placed in the dermis and perfused. Substances from extracellular space may diffuse through the pores of the membrane and be collected in the dialysate for further analysis. Glucose, sodium fusidate, betamethasone 17,21-dipropionate and calcipotriol were chosen as model substances and were investigated by in vitro microdialysis. The perfusion rate, the length of the membrane, stirring rate and temperature influenced recovery of the substances. Lipophilic compounds tend to have low recoveries and differ in recovery and loss. Insertion of the microdialysis probe causes a trauma in the skin. Rat and human skin were studied in vivo. Increase in skin blood flow, erythema and skin thickness were demonstrated by laser Doppler perfusion imaging Imitrex Reviews , Dermaspectrometer colorimetry, Minolta Chromameter colorimetry and ultrasound imaging of cross-sectional skin structure. In addition histamine was released in rat skin due to the needle insertion. An equilibration period of minimum 90 min in human skin and 30 min in rat skin after the insertion is necessary to allow the effects of trauma to diminish. To obtain measurable concentrations in the dialysate in rats treated topically with the lipophilic drug betamethasone 17-valerate, unrealistic high doses and penetration enhancement were required. The highly protein-bound drug fusidic acid was not measurable in the dialysate after topical application, probably due to very low concentrations of free diffusible drug. Measurable concentrations were only observed after high doses of oral administrations of fusidic acid. Calcipotriol could not be detected in the dialysate. The microdialysis technique is probably primarily useful for the study of hydrophilic substances and substances with low protein binding and low molecular weight. However, application of cutaneous microdialysis for the study of lipophilic substances need further methodologically development.

However, when the results were examined by separate diagnostic category, the number of preferences was greater for diflucortolone valerate 0.3% in eczema, and for clobetasol propionate 0.05% in psoriasis, although neither of these differences reached levels of statistical significance. The graded assessments of response indicated that both compounds were highly effective, potent, topical steroids. Eighty-one percent of all patients showed marked improvement or healing with diflucortolone valerate 0.3%, and 84% showed marked improvement or healing with clobetasol propionate 0.05%. This difference was not statistically significant. Analysis of response, either by diagnosis or grade of severity, showed no statistically significant differences between the two compounds. No significant differences in the incidence of severity of side-effects were observed. It was concluded that the two compounds were of equal clinical efficacy.

The nonhalogenated double ester of prednisolone, prednicarbate (PC), is the first topical glucocorticoid with an improved benefit/risk ratio verified clinically and in vitro. To evaluate if this is due to unique characteristics of this steroid, a new compound created according to an identical concept, prednisolone 17-ethylcarbonate, 21-phenylacetate (PEP), and the new halogenated monoester desoximetasone 21-cinnamate (DCE) were tested and compared to PC, desoximetasone (DM) and betamethasone 17-valerate (BMV). Isolated foreskin keratinocytes served for in vitro investigations of anti-inflammatory processes in the epidermis, fibroblasts of the same origin were used to investigate the atrophogenic potential. Inflammation was induced by TNFalpha, resulting in an increased interleukin 1alpha (Il-1alpha) synthesis. As quantified by ELISA, all drugs significantly reduced Il-1alpha production. But PC and BMV appeared particularly potent, followed by DM and the two new congeners, which revealed minor anti-inflammatory activity. Glucocorticoid esters including PEP are rapidly degraded in keratinocytes (85% within 12 h). Hence, a ribonuclease protection assay of Il-1alpha mRNA was performed allowing short incubation times and thus minimizing biodegradation. This assay confirmed the anti-inflammatory potency of native PC and BMV. In contrary DCE and PEP did not reduce Il-1alpha mRNA to a significant extent. Therefore PEP acts as a prodrug only. In fibroblasts, Il-1alpha and Il-6 syntheses indicate proliferation and inflammation, respectively. Whereas PC and PEP inhibited Il-1alpha and Il-6 production in fibroblasts only to a minor extent, cytokine synthesis was strongly affected by the conventional glucocorticoids BMV and DM, but also by DCE. The minor unwanted effect of PC and PEP on fibroblasts was also reflected by their low influence on cell proliferation as derived from (3)H-thymidine incorporation. Again, more pronounced antiproliferative features were seen with the halogenated glucocorticoids. In the following, the correlation between antiphlogistic effects in keratinocytes (suppression of Il-1alpha) and antiproliferative effects in fibroblasts (suppression of Il-1alpha and Il-6; (3)H-thymidine incorporation) was analyzed. Here, PC is revealed as the only glucocorticoid with an improved benefit/risk ratio. Native PEP is shown to be almost ineffective and DCE presents exactly the Prednisone 90 Mg opposite features of PC. It is tempting to speculate if this is due to different glucocorticoid receptor subtypes or different signaling pathways in keratinocytes and fibroblasts.

Topical corticosteroids are used extensively to treat inflammatory skin diseases. Long-term use, however, may be associated with adverse effects such as skin atrophy. New steroids have been developed with the objective of increasing efficacy and reducing the incidence of adverse effects. Mometasone furoate (MMF) is one of these new derivatives. The aim of our study was to compare the effects of MMF and betamethasone-17-valerate (BM-17-valerate) on collagen synthesis in human skin in vivo. Fifteen healthy male volunteers applied MMF, BM-17-valerate and vehicle for 1 week to different areas of abdominal skin. Suction blisters were raised on these areas, and a control site, and procollagen propeptide (PICP, PINP, PIIINP) levels in the suction blister fluid were measured by radioimmunoassay. Skin thickness was measured ultrasonically by Dermascan A at the end of the treatment period. The levels of the three propeptides in suction blister fluid were reduced to similar extent by MMF and BM-17-valerate. The 1-week treatment period had no detectable influence on skin thickness. We conclude that MMF and BM-17-valerate decrease collagen synthesis to the same extent in human skin in vivo.

The discovery of a high-affinity receptor for the bioactive form of vitamin D3, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25[OH]D3), in most skin cells has led to the finding of previously unknown effects of vitamin D on epidermal growth and on the skin immune system. 1,25(OH)2D3 inhibits epidermal proliferation and promotes epidermal differentiation. These properties provided the rationale for introducing 1,25(OH)2D3 in the treatment of psoriasis vulgaris. In addition to 1,25(OH)2D3, the synthetic vitamin D3 analogues 1 alpha(OH)D3, 1,24(OH)2D3, and calcipotriol have undergone clinical evaluation. Calcipotriol has been studied most extensively. Compared with 1,25(OH)2D3, calcipotriol is about 200 times less potent in its effects on calcium metabolism, although similar in receptor affinity. In double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized studies, topical calcipotriol (50 micrograms/gm, up to 100 gm weekly) has been shown to be efficacious and safe for the treatment of psoriasis. A similar therapeutic profile has been seen in long-term studies. In comparative studies topical calcipotriol is slightly more efficacious than betamethasone 17-valerate and dithranol. The mode of action of calcipotriol and other vitamin D3 analogues in psoriasis is not known. Although vitamin D3 analogues affect epidermal growth, their immunosuppressive properties may be equally important for their antipsoriatic effect.

A number of number of 16alpha-alkoxy and 16alpha-acyloxy derivatives of 21-chloro-17-acyloxy corticosteroids have been prepared. The synthetic routes used were (a) reaction of the 16alpha,17-disubstituted 21-mesylate with lithium chloride and (b) reaction of the 16alpha-substituted 17,21-cyclic ortho ester with triphenylmethyl chloride. The vasoconstrictor activities in humans exhibited by these compounds were significantly lower than that of a 16beta-methyl analogue.
