The purpose of this study is to investigate efficacy of excimer laser for treatment of fingernail psoriasis

The most recent study investigating tazarotene in nail psoriasis compared the efficacy of pulsed dye laser (PDL) plus topical tazarotene cream versus topical tazarotene alone 57. NB-UVB therapy, as well as with the Excimer laser, appears to be much less effective, or not effective at all, in treating nail psoriasis 79, 80, 158. Novel treatment of nail psoriasis using the intense pulsed light: a one-year follow-up study. Efficacy of pulsed dye laser plus topical tazarotene versus topical tazarotene alone in psoriatic nail disease: a single-blind, intrapatient left-to-right controlled study. Study of Excimer Laser Versus Pulsed Dye Laser for the Treatment of Nail Psoriasis. A 24-week randomized clinical trial investigating the efficacy and safety of two doses of etanercept in nail psoriasis. For purposes of treatment planning, patients may be grouped into mild-to-moderate and moderate-to-severe disease categories. The management of nail psoriasis is reviewed in detail separately. As an example, one study of excimer laser therapy involved 124 patients with stable mild to moderate plaque psoriasis, of whom 80 completed the entire protocol 74.

The purpose of this study is to investigate efficacy of excimer laser for treatment of fingernail psoriasis 2Acitretin is a second generation retinoid used in the treatment of psoriasis. It has shown particular efficacy in the treatment of pustular or erythrodermic psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that generally appears as patches of raised red skin covered by a flaky white buildup. Plaque psoriasis can appear on any skin surface, although the knees, elbows, scalp, trunk and nails are the most common locations. Feldman et al (2002) reported on a multi-center study of the excimer laser involving 124 patients with stable mild-to-moderate plaque-type psoriasis; 32 of whom dropped out of the study before completing the course of treatment. C Antoniou, I Stefanaki, A Stratigos, E Moustou, T Vergou, P Stavropoulos, G Avgerinou, D Rigopoulos, A D Katsambas (2010) Infliximab for the treatment of psoriasis in Greece: 4 years of clinical experience at a single centre. B phototherapy and 308-nm excimer laser in the treatment of vitiligo: a review.

UVB treatment with a 308nm excimer laser has shown promise in the treatment of localized psoriasis. The purpose of this report is to compare the results of a study of 308nm laser treatment of psoriasis to published results of other psoriasis treatments. It may take a year or more to get cure as new nail growth must completely replace the old and infected one 4. Drug targeting has been done into the nail bed in order to treat nail psoriasis 7. In this investigation, the efficacy of nail lacquer in improvising penetration of -ketoconazole was evaluated by comparing nail distribution, absorption, and penetration. 308nm Excimer Laser for Treatment of Fingernail Psoriasis RecruitingNail PsoriasisDevice;Device: 308 nm excimer laser;Sham laserUniversity of Utah;American Society for Dermatologic Surgery; Other;OtherMale, Female18 Years – N/AN/AInterventional: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: TreatmentPsoriasis is a common skin disease, which affects 2-3 of the population. The purpose of this study is to investigate efficacy of excimer laser for treatment of fingernail psoriasis.

The Efficacy Of 308nm Laser Treatment Of Psoriasis Compared To Historical Controls

The purpose of this study is to investigate efficacy of excimer laser for treatment of fingernail psoriasis 3Efficacy and safety of adalimumab in Chinese patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis: Results from a phase 3, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind Study. The purpose of this analysis was to determine whether the efficacy of ADA is affected by body mass index (BMI; calculated as weight/height2). Excimer laser for treatment of generalized psoriasis. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of LTB4 on the pulmonary adventitial layer, largely composed of fibroblasts. These observations will require confirmation in a larger trial powered to evaluate efficacy. Eight participants completed the entire study, and 1, despite early improvement, did not complete the study because of hospitalization for an unrelated reason. A paired t test was performed to evaluate efficacy of treatment. Furthermore, psoriasis can worsen when interferon therapy is used to treat the hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, presumably because of a shift in the Th1 population of CD4 cells. P10 INVESTIGATION OF THE MECHANISM OF NONABLATIVE PULSED-DYE LASER THERAPY IN ACNE VULGARIS AND PHOTOREJUVENATION Edward Seaton, Akaterina Charikida, Paul Seldon, Anthony Chu, Department of Dermatology, Imperial College, London, England Nonablative laser and light therapies are advocated for photorejuvenation and, increasingly, acne. Treatments with 308-nm excimer laser were administered twice weekly for 10 weeks. It was successfully utilized in psoriasis; later, it proved to be useful in handling other lightsensitive skin disorders and even in the treatment of allergic rhinitis. The aim of this systematic review was to investigate the literature and summarize all the experiments, clinical trials and case reports on 308-nm excimer laser in dermatological disorders. 308-nm excimer laser has currently a verified efficacy in treating skin conditions such as vitiligo, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, alopecia areata, allergic rhinitis, folliculitis, granuloma annulare, lichen planus, mycosis fungoides, palmoplantar pustulosis, pityriasis alba, CD30+ lympho proliferative disorder, leukoderma, prurigo nodularis, localized scleroderma and genital lichen sclerosus. Evaluation of a novel 308-nm monochromatic excimer light delivery system in dermatology: a pilot study in different chronic localized dermatoses.

The Efficacy Of 308nm Laser Treatment Of Psoriasis Compared To Historical Controls

Treatment of vitiligo with the 308-nm excimer laser: a pilot study. Development of lichen planus and psoriasis on lesions of vitiligo vulgaris. The accurate measurement of vitiligo surface area is fundamental to the evaluation of treatment efficacy. An additional purpose was to investigate whether vitiligo keratinocytes from depigmented skin are able to sustain survival and growth of normal melanocytes (when added in co-culture experiments), as normal human keratinocytes manage to do.
