Disease relevance of Dermatology


Psychiatry related information on Dermatology


High impact information on Dermatology

  • Vitamin A and retinoids: from nutrition to pharmacotherapy in dermatology and oncology [10].
  • Potential pharmacological applications in the areas of oncology, dermatology, diabetes, and atherosclerosis of synthetic analogs of retinoic acid that target a specific nuclear receptor and/or biological response have generated great interest in the development of new retinoid and rexinoid drugs [11].
  • Systematic studies are needed to confirm these preliminary findings, which suggest that adhering to dermatology precautions with slower titration may yield a low incidence of rash with lamotrigine [12].
  • From the results of this exploratory study we conclude that the technique presented has great potential for fundamental skin research, pharmacology (percutaneous transport), clinical dermatology, and cosmetic research, as well as for noninvasive analysis of blood analytes, including glucose [13].
  • Gene amplification by polymerase chain reaction in dermatology [14].

Chemical compound and disease context of Dermatology


Biological context of Dermatology

  • BACKGROUND: In dermatology and rheumatology, methotrexate is frequently prescribed in low dosages per week; in oncology, high dosages per week are prescribed [20].
  • It has been used for more than 4 years and has proven to be a reliable and useful tool for the numerous research studies in which histamine is involved: immunology, allergy, pharmacology, dermatology, cancer, nutrition [21].
  • In this article we review the literature on liposomes as it pertains to dermatology, including the basic principles of liposome structures and preparations, pharmacokinetics of liposomes and liposome-encapsulated drugs, and the influence on drug activity [22].
  • SETTING: Patients at the Center for Dermatology and Andrology, Giessen, Germany. PATIENT(S): Semen collected from 63 randomly collected patients attending the IVF unit of the University of Giessen, Germany. INTERVENTION(S): Only patients with nonleukocytospermia were included in this study [23].
  • Clinical applications of the Argon and carbon dioxide lasers in dermatology and plastic surgery [24].

Anatomical context of Dermatology

  • The cases were confirmed by the histopathologic and mycologic analyses made by the Dermatology Service of the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul at the Santa Casa de Misericórdia Hospital. RESULTS: There was a predominance of male patients (4:1) and of white farmers whose ages ranged from 50 to 59 years, with lesions on their lower limbs [25].
  • The epidermal keratinocytes, a main target tissue of retinoid therapy in dermatology, was examined in the capacity to metabolize the retinoid [26].
  • Peroxisomes in dermatology. Part I [27].
  • Ultrasound in dermatology. Part II. Ultrasound of regional lymph node basins and subcutaneous tumours [28].

Associations of Dermatology with chemical compounds


Gene context of Dermatology

  • SETTING: Department of Dermatology, University of Würzburg Medical School. RESULTS: High levels of messenger RNA expression of MCP-1, RANTES, Mig, and interferon-gamma inducible protein 10 were detected and localized in the interface zone and subepidermal infiltrate [34].
  • Use of etanercept in the dermatology setting. A review [35].
  • Interleukin-7. Biology and implications for dermatology [36].
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study including all patients diagnosed as having LE between 1995 and 2003 in the Dermatology Department of Strasbourg University Hospital. Patient charts were reviewed and those patients in whom a C4 and/or C2 deficiency was diagnosed were included [37].
  • RESULTS: MRSA or BMSSA were isolated from 13 patients on the dermatology ward over a 14-month period [3].
