The hypothesis of this study is that excimer (308-nm UVB) laser added to either tazarotene 0.1% gel or acitretin 25 mg daily will lead to improved efficacy of these treatments alone. The primary objective of this study is to compare the improvement of psoriatic plaques with and without excimer laser (308-nm UVB) treatment, applied in a randomized and blinded fashion, in subjects on acitretin 25 mg or tazarotene gel 0.1% QD. The primary endpoint will be the comparison between t...
To determine the efficacy of acitretin in the treatment of psoriasis in HIV/AIDS patients. Etretinate, a retinoid, has proven successful in the treatment of HIV-infected patients with psoriasis, but it has an elimination half-life of 100 days. Acitretin, a metabolite of etretinate, has a much shorter half-life of 2 to 3 days. Acitretin has proven effective in treating psoriasis in patients without HIV infection by reducing skin involvement and clearing of the condition, but it...
This is a 12-week, open-label, pilot trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of the combination of Clobex® spray with excimer laser therapy as the initial treatment of generalized plaque psoriasis, followed by maintenance therapy with topical Vectical. The study will be conducted in three distinct periods, namely Period A, Period B, and Period C, each of 4 weeks duration. During Period A (weeks 1 through 4), patients will use Clobex® spray twice daily along with excimer las...
Nail psoriasis has a high incidence amongst patients with psoriasis.It is estimated to affect 80% of psoriatic patients at some time during their lives and has a significant adverse influence on their quality of life. Treatment of nail psoriasis is disappointing, as it is refractory to treatment, with conventional therapies often having little effect.
Although vitiligo is difficult to cure, recurrences are frequent after treatment, and many patients suffer from concerns about recurrence as well as disease. Psoriasis, another indication for ultraviolet radiation treatment, has been established that it can safely and effectively reduce the recurrence of psoriasis through monthly maintenance therapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of 308-nm excimer laser therapy for the prevention of relapse in vitiligo.
Objective: Efficacy of systemic retinoid therapy of nail psoriasis has never been assessed objectively. Evaluate therapeutic efficacy of acitretin in patients with isolated nail psoriasis. Design: Open-study on thirty-six patients with moderate to severe nail psoriasis treated with acitretin. Participants: Patients included 27 men and 9 women (mean age 41) with nail psoriasis. Intervention: Therapy consisted of acitretin 0.2 to 0.3 mg/Kg/day for 6 months...
308 nm excimer lamp and 308 nm excimer laser have both provide interesting results in treating vitiligo. They have the same wavelength but the type of emission of the photons is different. To date there is no direct comparative data concerning these two devices in this indication. The aim of the study is to make an intra-individual prospective comparison between these two phototherapies.
In an early clinical research, 138 patients completed the treatment of Psoriasis Vulgaris by Acitretin Capsules in 8 weeks, the results indicate 75 cases effectively (54.3%), 50 cases invalid(36.2%), 13 cases serious(9.4%). To investigate the influence of genetic factors on the curative effect and find the relationships between genetic variants and the response of Acitretin Capsules to treatment of Psoriasis Vulgaris.
A Multi-Center, Double-Blind, Randomized, Vehicle-Controlled, Parallel-Group Study Comparing Tazarotene Cream 0.05% to TAZORAC® (tazarotene) Cream 0.05% and Both Active Treatments to a Vehicle Control in the Treatment of Stable Plaque Psoriasis
To determine the optimal treatment frequency of 308-nm excimer laser for vitiligo and identify the key clinical variable(s) associated with the treatment efficiency under the optimal treatment frequency. Prospective, randomized, comparative study among groups of vitiligo patients treated with 308-nm excimer laser, with the limitation of no follow-up.
To determine whether acitretin plus etanercept is more effective than etanercept alone in clearing psoriasis plaques in adults.
In this study, the investigators will intend to compare the efficacy and safety of various doses of acitretin in a randomized double blind manner in patients with severe plaque-type psoriasis, by i) studying the change PASI score from baseline as a measure of efficacy ii) determining the frequency of side effects at various doses. Sixty patients will be recruited from Psoriasis Clinic of Department of Dermatology, Venerology and Leprology, PGIMER. Patients will be randomly ass...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of etanercept 50 mg twice weekly followed by etanercept 25mg twice weekly, as compared with the combination of etanercept 25 mg twice weekly and acitretin and acitretin alone in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis in Korea
Acitretin, when given in combiantion with pioglitazone might achieve better and/or more rapid control of moderate to severe chronic plaque type psoriasis.
A Prospective, Randomized, Multi Center Clinical Comparison of Fellow Eyes Undergoing Lasik Using the Wavelight Allegretto Wave™ Excimer Laser in One Eye and the Amo/Visx Customvue™ or the Ladarvision 4000 Excimer Laser System in the Contralateral Eye
The purpose of this study is to compare LASIK outcomes using the WaveLight ALLEGRETTO WAVE™ wavefront guided or optimized excimer laser treatment with the AMO/VISX CustomVue™ and the LADARVision 4000 excimer laser treatment. Standard refractive outcomes such as uncorrected and best corrected visual acuity, and intended vs. achieved postoperative refractions will be evaluated; in addition, high order optical aberrations, contrast sensitivity, and topography will be measured...
