In this study, we demonstrate for the first time the dual roles of Tocopheryl Polyethylene Glycol 1000 Succinate (TPGS) based microemulsion (ME) for tacrolimus (TAC) to enhance TAC percutaneous delivery and anti-psoriatic efficacy. The ME formulation was developed and optimized based on pseudo-ternary phase diagrams combined with in vitro permeation. The result of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) demonstrated that TAC was completely solubilized in the TPGS-ME. In vitro permeation studies showed that TPGS-ME enhanced TAC permeation through and into the skin, and the enhanced deposition of TAC in the normal or psoriatic skin was further confirmed in vivo...

Combined therapy with corticosteroids and immunosuppressant-loaded nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) could be useful in the treatment of skin diseases. To circumvent NLC loading capacity problems, loaded drugs should have different physicochemical characteristics, such as tacrolimus (TAC) and clobetasol (CLO). Therefore, in the present study, TAC and CLO were encapsulated in NLC (TAC-NLC, CLO-NLC and TAC+CLO-NLC), coated or otherwise with chitosan. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy of different spin labels was used to investigate the impact of drug and oil incorporation on the lipid dynamic behavior of the lipid matrices...

Tacrolimus is an emerging candidate for the treatment of immune-mediated inflammatory ocular disorders (IIODs) however its ocular delivery remained a challenge due to its hydrophobic nature, high molecular weight and physiological and anatomical constraints of the eye. The present work describes vesicles composed of propylene glycol, phospholipid and water, proglycosomes (PNVs), as novel carriers for ocular delivery of tacrolimus. Addition of propylene glycol decreases vesicle aggregation, increases encapsulation of tacrolimus and prevented drug leakage...

Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is a chronic form of cutaneous lupus that can cause permanent scarring. Treatment of DLE includes protection from sunlight and artificial sources of ultraviolet light, as well as systemic and topical medications. The first-line standard therapies are antimalarials and topical steroids. Other systemic therapies include systemic steroid, azathioprine, dapsone, and immunosuppressive agents. Topical tacrolimus and pimecrolimus have also been evaluated. Recent studies reported that several treatments, including pulsed dye laser, CO2 laser, intense pulsed light (IPL), and 1,064-nm long-pulse neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum (Nd:YAG) have been used for the cosmetic treatment of DLE...

The Australasian Psoriasis Collaboration has reviewed the evidence for managing moderate to severe psoriasis in those who are pregnant or are breast-feeding, or planning a family. The severity of the psoriasis, associated comorbidities and specific anti-psoriasis treatment, along with other exposures, can have a deleterious effect on pregnancy outcomes. Psoriasis itself increases the risk of preterm and low birthweight babies, along with spontaneous and induced abortions, but no specific birth defects have been otherwise demonstrated...

Papular acantholytic dermatosis of the vulva is a rare, chronic disorder and is an entity that remains to be fully understood. It shares clinical and histopathological overlap with Darier disease and Hailey-Hailey disease. We describe a 30-year-old woman with papular acantholytic dermatosis of the vulva. The lesions consisted of whitish papules and erosions on the labia majora. Histologically, there was hyperkeratosis and focal parakeratosis with acantholytic and dyskeratotic cells. She did not respond completely to topical steroids but clinical improvement occurred after the use of topical tacrolimus...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Vitiligo is a pigmentary disorder and autoimmune pathogenesis seems most likely. Decreased vitamin D levels have been related to several autoimmune diseases. Little is known about the association of vitiligo and vitamin D. We aimed to evaluate serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] levels in children with vitiligo and to determine the efficacy of oral vitamin D therapy on the repigmentation of vitamin D deficient patients. METHODS: Thirty patients aged 6-17 years with vitiligo and 30 sex- and age-matched apparently healthy controls were included in this prospective study...

CASE SUMMARY: A 14-year-old female spayed cat was referred for recurrent otitis externa and unusual proliferative lesions in both ear canals. The affected pinnae and external ear canals were covered with large reddish-to-dark-brown verrucous and necrotic tissue. Friable material and exudates occluded both ear canals. Proliferative lesions developed in both ears 2-3 weeks before referral. The histopathological diagnosis from two biopsies obtained from the friable materials with endoscopic biopsy forceps was proliferative and necrotising otitis externa (PNOE)...

Zoon's balanitis is an asymptomatic lesion that requires histopathological examination of involved tissue for confirmation of diagnosis. Till today, circumcision is considered as the treatment of choice as topical medical therapy is insufficient to cure the disease and also there was a risk of recurrence after discontinuation of therapy. Herein, we have treated the Zoon's balanitis with 0.1% topical tacrolimus with complete resolution of the lesion in 6 weeks. Hence, we think topical tacrolimus therapy should be considered as an alternative to circumcision in the treatment of Zoon's balanitis...

BACKGROUND: Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) is a chronic form of cutaneous lupus, which can cause scarring. Many drugs have been used to treat this disease and some (such as thalidomide, cyclophosphamide and azathioprine) are potentially toxic. This is an update of a Cochrane Review first published in 2000, and previously updated in 2009. We wanted to update the review to assess whether any new information was available to treat DLE, as we were still unsure of the effectiveness of available drugs and how to select the most appropriate treatment for an individual with DLE...

Vitiligo is an intriguing depigmentary disorder and is notoriously difficult to be treated. The ultimate goal of vitiligo treatment is to replenish the lost melanocytes by immigration from hair follicle and to restore the normal function of melanogenesis by residual melanocytes. There are two types of topical calcineurin inhibitors called tacrolimus and pimecrolimus, and are recommended as the first-line treatments in vitiligo. Although pimecrolimus is efficacious for the repigmentation of vitiligo, its intrinsic mechanisms have never been investigated in vitro...

Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN) is a relatively rare disorder with an onset at early age, consisting of pruritic linear papules and/or plaques and histologic features resembling psoriasis or lichenoid dermatitis. The disease is a version of mosaicism caused by somatic mutations. ILVEN belongs to the heterogeneous group of congenital hamartomas of embryonal ectodermal origin, as a variant of verrucous epidermal nevus, representing approximately 5% of all epidermal nevi, with predominance in females and with general therapeutic resistance...

RATIONALE: In the determination of immunosuppressive drugs cyclosporine A (CSA), tacrolimus (TARO), sirolimus (SIRO), and everolimus (EVE) in whole blood there is an open debate about which is the best assay between immunochemistry and liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS). This work is aimed to explore this topic, focusing on the use of updated assays and the analysis of a large number of samples. METHODS: A certified in vitro diagnostic kit coupled with a medical device LC/MS/MS was validated and applied to the analysis of 1192 blood samples of patients treated with immunosuppressive drugs...

BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a common skin disease and predominantly affects on the face of middle-aged women. It exceptionally occurs on the extrafacial areas such as ear, neck, axilla, and upper extremities, and has been reported as disseminated rosacea. MAIN OBSERVATION: A 40-year-old Japanese female presented with one-month history of erythematous skin eruption with burning sensation on the face, neck, and upper limbs. Physical examination showed rosacea-like eruption on the face as well as multiple papules disseminated on the neck, forearms, and hands...

Janus kinases (JAKs) are required for several inflammatory cytokine signaling pathways and are implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic dermatitis, including atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. JAK inhibitors are therefore promising therapeutic candidates for chronic dermatitis. In this study, we evaluated the effects of the novel JAK inhibitor JTE-052 on inflammatory responses associated with chronic dermatitis, and compared its profile with those of conventional therapeutic agents in rodent models of chronic dermatitis...
