This study is a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled evaluation of the safety of a topically applied formulation of rapamycin to cutaneous fibromatous lesions in subjects with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and Neurofibromatosis I (NF1). Subjects will apply either a Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coating (Skincerity) containing rapamycin or the PVDF coating alone nightly to fibromatous lesions for a duration of six months.
The primary goal of this study is to evaluate the safety of the topical product in patients with TSC and NF1. The secondary goal of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the topical product for treatment of cutaneous fibromatous lesions.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Skincerity, Skincerity plus sirolimus/rapamycin, Skinercity plus sirolimus/rapamycin

The purpose of this study is to find out about the safety of sirolimus in individuals with HIV infection who are also being treated with ART. The investigators want to learn whether siroli...
Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of sirolimus is essential in transplant recipients. We evaluated the performance of a new electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) for measuring sirolimus concent...
Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEComa) is a family of mesenchymal tumors. Conventional chemotherapy has little activity in this disease, but case reports are available on the activity of mammali...
Recent reports have suggested that the topical formulation of sirolimus is effective in treating facial angiofibromas in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Here, we determined the safety and efficacy o...
Cirrhosis is often associated with portal hypertension and portal-systemic collateral vessels formation attributed to angiogenesis, which leads to severe complications as hepatic encephalopathy. Sirol...
Neonates with vascular anomalies causing airway compromise and other complications require early initiation of medical therapy. Sirolimus has emerged as a safe and effective treatment, but standard re...
A macrolide compound obtained from Streptomyces hygroscopicus that acts by selectively blocking the transcriptional activation of cytokines thereby inhibiting cytokine production. It is bioactive only when bound to IMMUNOPHILINS. Sirolimus is a potent immunosuppressant and possesses both antifungal and antineoplastic properties.
A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.
A family of immunophilin proteins that bind to the immunosuppressive drugs TACROLIMUS (also known as FK506) and SIROLIMUS. EC 5.2.1.-
A 12-KDa tacrolimus binding protein that is found associated with and may modulate the function of calcium release channels. It is a peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase which is inhibited by both tacrolimus (commonly called FK506) and SIROLIMUS.
Members of a family of highly conserved proteins which are all cis-trans peptidyl-prolyl isomerases (PEPTIDYLPROLYL ISOMERASE). They bind the immunosuppressant drugs CYCLOSPORINE; TACROLIMUS and SIROLIMUS. They possess rotamase activity, which is inhibited by the immunosuppressant drugs that bind to them.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
