The purpose of this study is to determine whether topical application of PEP005 is effective for the treatment of actinic keratoses.
The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of combination calcipotriene 0.005% foam and 5% fluorouracil cream for the treatment of actinic keratoses on the scalp. The data obt...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the use of sunlight instead of red light during photodynamic therapy of actinic keratoses using methyl aminolevulinate
To determine and compare the safety and efficacy of broad area photodynamic therapy with aminolevulinic acid (ALA-PDT) following topical retinoid pre-treatment vs ALA-PDT with occlusion on...
Daylight photodynamic therapy (dl-PDT) is an effective and almost painless treatment for patients with actinic keratoses (AKs) but carries important limitations due to seasonal conditions. PDT with Pr...
Actinic keratoses (AKs) are common premalignant skin lesions triggered by excessive UV exposure. The majority of AKs regress or persist, but some progress to squamous cell carcinomas. The biomarkers a...
Actinic keratosis (AK) represents a risk of progression to squamous cell carcinoma. Ingenol mebutate gel is a novel therapeutic option for field-directed treatment.
A compound produced from succinyl-CoA and GLYCINE as an intermediate in heme synthesis. It is used as a PHOTOCHEMOTHERAPY for actinic KERATOSIS.
White or pink lesions on the arms, hands, face, or scalp that arise from sun-induced DNA DAMAGE to KERATINOCYTES in exposed areas. They are considered precursor lesions to superficial SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA.
A lignan (LIGNANS) found in PODOPHYLLIN resin from the roots of PODOPHYLLUM plants. It is a potent spindle poison, toxic if taken internally, and has been used as a cathartic. It is very irritating to skin and mucous membranes, has keratolytic actions, has been used to treat warts and keratoses, and may have antineoplastic properties, as do some of its congeners and derivatives.
Caustic extract from the roots of Podophyllum peltatum and P. emodi. It contains PODOPHYLLOTOXIN and its congeners and is very irritating to mucous membranes and skin. Podophyllin is a violent purgative that may cause CNS damage and teratogenesis. It is used as a paint for warts, skin neoplasms, and senile keratoses.
A heritable disorder of faulty keratinization characterized by the proliferation of abnormal clones of KERATINOCYTES and lesions showing varying atrophic patches surrounded by an elevated, keratotic border. These keratotic lesions can progress to overt cutaneous neoplasm. Several clinical variants are recognized, including porokeratosis of Mibelli, linear porokeratosis, disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis, palmoplantar porokeratosis, and punctate porokeratosis.
