Vitiligo is a complex disease causing a selective, often progressive, loss of functioning melanocytes from epidermal basal layer resulting in white patches on the skin and occasionally muc...
Actually the methods for melanocyte delivery are invasive and often sophisticated. The dermarolling system with needles causing tiny microinjuries in the epidermis could offer a minimally ...
This is an open-label, randomized, multicenter, prospective trial assessing the efficacy and safety of microneedling treatment alone vs. microneedling treatment followed by treatment with ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the hypothesis that, in patients with stable vitiligo unresponsive to conventional treatments including traditional phototherapy and/or topical ste...
The incidence of leucotrichia has been reported to range from 9 to 48.4% of all vitiligo patients.Leucotrichia is more often observed in segmental vitiligo with a very high percentage. How...
Vitiligo is frequently treated with the combination of phototherapy and melanocyte transplantation. However, the additional benefit of phototherapy is unclear. Moreover, the optimal type and regimen o...
Vitiligo has a substantial negative impact on quality of life in affected patients, especially those with involvement of the face. However, the current system can barely distinguish between specific p...
Currently accepted that oxidative stress is a triggering event in the melanocytic destruction and is probably involved in the etiopathogenesis of vitiligo disease. Despite numerous investigations, con...
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure wherein small holes are created across the stratum corneum while keeping the epidermis partially intact. This produces microchannels that increase skin ...
The bronze baby syndrome is an infrequent dyschromia resulting from phototherapy in newborn babies with neonatal jaundice. Even though the common phenotype has been described in patients with direct n...
Technique using an instrument system for making, processing, and displaying one or more measurements on individual cells obtained from a cell suspension. Cells are usually stained with one or more fluorescent dyes specific to cell components of interest, e.g., DNA, and fluorescence of each cell is measured as it rapidly transverses the excitation beam (laser or mercury arc lamp). Fluorescence provides a quantitative measure of various biochemical and biophysical properties of the cell, as well as a basis for cell sorting. Other measurable optical parameters include light absorption and light scattering, the latter being applicable to the measurement of cell size, shape, density, granularity, and stain uptake.
A suspension of formalin-inactivated poliovirus grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture and used to prevent POLIOMYELITIS.
Treatment of disease by exposure to light, especially by variously concentrated light rays or specific wavelengths.
Pigmenting photosensitizing agent obtained from several plants, mainly Psoralea corylifolia. It is administered either topically or orally in conjunction with ultraviolet light in the treatment of vitiligo.
Serologic tests in which a known quantity of antigen is added to the serum prior to the addition of a red cell suspension. Reaction result is expressed as the smallest amount of antigen which causes complete inhibition of hemagglutination.
