Efficacy Evaluation of Products Against Long Wavelength Ultraviolet A1 and Visible Light Induced Biological Effects

2019-12-05 00:03:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of topical products in providing protection against the visible light and ultraviolet A1 (UVA1) part of sunlight. Ultraviolet radiation and visible light are both components of sunlight that reach the earth. It is important to test these topical products against visible light and UVA1 because our current sunscreens may not protect against these very well.

Modeling of Drug Diffusion Based on Concentration Profiles in Healthy and Damaged Human Skin.

Based on experimental drug concentration profiles in healthy as well as tape-stripped ex vivo human skin, we model the penetration of the antiinflammatory drug dexamethasone into the skin layers by t...

The mechanism of the interaction of α-crystallin and UV-damaged β-crystallin.

α-Crystallin maintains the transparency of the lens by preventing the aggregation of damaged proteins. The aim of our work was to study the chaperone-like activity of native α-crystallin in near phy...

In vivo Change of Keratin-Bound Molecules in the Human Stratum Corneum following Exposure to Ultraviolet Radiation.

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation damages the stratum corneum (SC) and disrupts the skin barrier. The damaged skin changes in the molecular composition of the SC, including its water content. However, it is ...

Combined effects of glycerol and petrolatum in an emollient cream: A randomized, double-blind, crossover study in healthy volunteers with dry skin.

The stratum corneum plays an important protective physiological role in providing a barrier to preventing skin desiccation and penetration of external agents. Emollients are used commonly to improve b...

Assessment of Skin Properties in Chronic Lymphedema: Measurement of Skin Stiffness, Percentage Water Content, and Transepidermal Water Loss.

Lymphedema (LE) is a chronic progressive protein-rich edema of the soft tissues. Measurement of extracellular fluid of the affected limbs is widely used in detecting LE; however, quantification of the...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Chemical or physical agents that protect the skin from sunburn and erythema by absorbing or blocking ultraviolet radiation.

A member of the VITAMIN B COMPLEX. It used to be common in SUNSCREENING AGENTS until found to also be a sensitizer. The potassium salt is used therapeutically in fibrotic skin disorders.

A measure of relative protection provided by SUNSCREENING AGENTS against burns due to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from a light source.

Agents that soften, separate, and cause desquamation of the cornified epithelium or horny layer of skin. They are used to expose mycelia of infecting fungi or to treat corns, warts, and certain other skin diseases.

Drugs used to treat or prevent skin disorders or for the routine care of skin.
