Topical drug bioavailability, bioequivalence, and penetration by Vinod P Shah( )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative volume explores advances in the techniques used to measure percutaneous penetration of drugs and chemicals to assess bioavailability and bioequivalence and discusses how they have been used in clinical and scientific investigations. Seven comprehensive sections examine topics including in vitro drug release, topical drugs products, clinical studies, and guidelines and workshop reports, among others. The book also describes how targeted transdermal drug delivery and more sophisticated mathematical modeling can aid in understanding the bioavailability of transdermal drugs. The first edition of this book was an important reference guide for researchers working to define the effectiveness and safety of drugs and chemicals that penetrated the skin. This second edition contains cutting-edge advances in the field and is a key resource to those seeking to define the bioavailability and bioequivalence of percutaneously active compounds to improve scientific and clinical investigation and regulation. Vinod P. Shah is a pharmaceutical consultant. He was Scientific Secretary of the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) and is now Chair of the FIP Regulatory Sciences Special Interest Group. Dr. Shah has served at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and has developed several regulatory guidances for the pharmaceutical industry in biopharmaceutics and topical drug products. Howard I.

Treatment of dry skin syndrome : the art and science of moisturizers by Marie Lodén( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème page de couverture indique : "Dry skin impacts on the lives of many individuals but in most cases it can be adequately managed with current moisturizing products. Certain moisturizers, however, can themselves adversely affect the quality of life by inducing further dryness and eczema and so becoming addictive. In addition, there is a possible link between moisturizing treatments and asthma. Development of moisturizers is a scientific and artistic discipline, where consumer insights are also needed. This new book bridges the gap between the moisturizers and the skin by covering all the essential information required to tailor the use of moisturizers to particular disorders and patients. Important aspects of skin biochemistry and barrier function are explained, and the ingredients and treatment effects of moisturizers are explored in depth. Careful attention is paid to controversies, including the role of certain moisturizers in inducing dryness/eczema, asthma, and comedones. The information provided in this unique book will enable the reader to go beyond the traditional thinking regarding skin care. The novel insights offered will suggest the properties required for a new generation of moisturizing treatments that more effectively improve the quality of life."

Filaggrin : basic science, epidemiology, clinical aspects and management by Jacob P Thyssen( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filaggrin proteins are expressed in several human tissues, including the skin, oral mucosa, conjunctivae, esophagus, cervix, and testes. While filaggrin guarantees both structural and functional normality of the human epidermis, its role in other tissues is largely unknown. Epidermal deficiency of filaggrin causes dry and scaly skin, but also strongly increases the risk of skin diseases, in particular ichthyosis vulgaris and atopic dermatitis. Importantly, the risk of related asthma, hay fever, and food allergy is also increased although filaggrin is not expressed in the airways and gastrointestinal tract. Common FLG mutations, leading to reduced filaggrin expression, have mainly been identified in Europeans and Asians, reaching a prevalence of 5-10%. Even in the absence of atopic dermatitis, the skin of individuals with FLG mutations differs fundamentally from normal skin, for example by generating more vitamin D and allowing chemicals and allergens to more widely penetrate across the stratum corneum. This textbook provides comprehensive and detailed coverage of the effects of filaggrin and filaggrin gene (FLG) mutations in health and disease (cutaneous and non-cutaneous) and also discusses the basic science, epidemiology, management, and future research areas. It will be of value to scientists and clinicians from different specialties
Chemical skin injury : mechanisms, prevention, decontamination, treatment by Howard I Maibach( )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an up-to-date, compact but comprehensive review of chemical skin injuries, differentiating them from thermal skin burns. After an introductory chapter on the history of chemical skin injuries and the scope of the problem, the anatomy, histology, physiology, and immunology of normal skin are described. Mechanisms involved in chemical penetration of normal skin are explained, and the effects of damaged skin on chemical penetration are analyzed. The remainder of the book discusses a variety of clinically relevant aspects, such as the different forms of chemical skin injury, including injuries that arise during skin peeling or due to hair products; preventive measures; emergency treatment; rinsing therapy; medical and surgical treatment; and the importance of providing relevant information to workers. The role of predictive toxicology is also considered. Chemical Skin Injury: Mechanisms, Prevention, Decontamination, Treatment is an ideal resource for readers who want to understand chemical skin injury, to put preventive measures in place, and to respond appropriately should a chemical skin injury occur

Evidence-based dermatology by Howard I Maibach( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces and encourages the concept of evidence-based patient care in dermatology. Incorporating a text that is much more than merely the summary of trial data, the authors worked to explore disease mechanisms and treatments in greater depth and detail in order to provide more insight for the reader. In addition to promoting the understanding of the evidence-based philosophy, the authors have focused on some of the fundamentals in dermatology that need to be approached differently. Issues such as the interpretation of clinical research, disease-oriented evidence versus patient-care evidence, and the use of placebo are examined
