The Efficacy of Cimetidin for Acute, Extrinsic-atopic Dermatitis Treated With Standard Therapy

2019-07-16 10:38:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Extrinsic - atopic dermatitis is characterized by increased of IgE serum levels. Acute extrinsic - atopic dermatitis is a type 1 hypersensitivity that involve various inflammatory mediator including Interleukin-4, Interleukin-12, and Interferon-Ɣ. Recent treatment of atopic dermatitis mainly focused on reducing the inflammation through topical and systemic regiments. However, no systemic medication could control the atopic dermatitis remission yet, and the current immunosuppressive agent used may cause many side effects if administered on a long term basis.

In the future, treatment of atopic dermatitis were specifically targeted to inhibit the role of Th2. Cimetidine is H2 receptor antihistamine that has been widely used as gastrointestinal medication for a long time. Cimetidine could modulate the immune system by activating the Th1 and lowering the Th2 activity, and lowering the IgE levels thus reducing the severity of atopic dermatitis.

Description

The aim of this study is to measure the efficacy of cimetidine for acute, extrinsic-atopic dermatitis treated with standard therapy using SCORAD as the clinical outcome. This study also measure Immunoglobulin E, Interleukin-4, Interleukin-12, and Interferon-Ɣ serum levels before and after treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disseminated vesicular-pustular eruption caused by the herpes simplex virus (HERPESVIRUS HOMINIS), the VACCINIA VIRUS, or Varicella zoster (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). It is usually superimposed on a preexisting, inactive or active, atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC).

The widespread involvement of the skin by a scaly, erythematous dermatitis occurring either as a secondary or reactive process to an underlying cutaneous disorder (e.g., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.), or as a primary or idiopathic disease. It is often associated with the loss of hair and nails, hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles, and pruritus. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.

A STEROID with GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTOR activity that is used to manage the symptoms of ASTHMA; ALLERGIC RHINITIS, and ATOPIC DERMATITIS.

A histamine congener, it competitively inhibits HISTAMINE binding to HISTAMINE H2 RECEPTORS. Cimetidine has a range of pharmacological actions. It inhibits GASTRIC ACID secretion, as well as PEPSIN and GASTRINS output. It also blocks the activity of CYTOCHROME P-450 which might explain proposals for use in NEOADJUVANT THERAPY.
