6362. Severely dry skin: clinical evaluation of a highly effective therapeutic lotion. (Abstract)

Severely dry skin: clinical evaluation of a highly effective therapeutic lotion. Four clinical studies are presented on a recently introduced therapeutic lotion for severely dry skin. Two monadic single-blind efficacy studies showed that hands of subjects treated with the product (Lotion V) were significantly improved over untreated hands. Following the completion of a regression study, two subsequent double-blind comparative studies showed Lotion V to be significantly more effective than (...) a well-established therapeutic lotion (Lotion K) for certain major signs and symptoms of dry skin. Results were derived from both objective clinical evaluation by investigating dermatologists and subjective evaluation by participating volunteers.

6363. Evaluation of the effectiveness of wet ice, dry ice, and cryogenic packs in reducing skin temperature. (Abstract)

Evaluation of the effectiveness of wet ice, dry ice, and cryogenic packs in reducing skin temperature. The purposes of this study were to evaluate and compare the ability of wet ice (WI), dry ice (DI), and cryogenic packs (CGPs) to reduce and maintain the reduction of skin temperature directly under the cooling agent and to determine whether the cooling effect on skin extended beyond the surface area in contact with the cooling agent. Ten female volunteers participated in the study, and each (...) of the three cold modalities was applied randomly to the skin overlying the right triceps surae muscle. After 15 minutes of cold application, mean skin temperatures recorded under WI, DI, and CGP decreased 12 degrees, 9.9 degrees, and 7.3 degrees C, respectively. The only significant differences in cooling were between WI and DI and between WI and CGP. Fifteen minutes after removal of the cold modalities, no significant differences were found in mean skin temperature between WI, DI, and CGP. The residual

6364. New treatment of dry eye: the effect of calcium ointment through eyelid skin delivery. Full Text available with Trip Pro

New treatment of dry eye: the effect of calcium ointment through eyelid skin delivery. To demonstrate the efficacy of a petrolatum based calcium ointment applied to the lower lid skin in the management of dry eye.In a controlled double masked study, the effects of water free petrolatum ointment containing calcium carbonate (10% w/w) on tear functional factors and ocular surface vital staining in dry eye patients were observed. Petrolatum without calcium carbonate served as control. Patients (...) symptoms, tear dynamics, and ocular surface staining in dry eye patients. However, some of the therapeutic effects may be due to lipids in the petrolatum vehicle. Petrolatum applied to the lower lid skin is an effective drug delivery system for slowly releasing drugs to the ocular surface.

6365. Instrumental and dermatologist evaluation of the effect of glycerine and urea on dry skin in atopic dermatitis. (Abstract)

Instrumental and dermatologist evaluation of the effect of glycerine and urea on dry skin in atopic dermatitis. Moisturising creams are useful treatment adjuncts in inflammatory dermatoses and have beneficial effects in the treatment of dry, scaly skin. The effects on dryness and skin permeability of a new moisturising cream with 20% glycerine was compared with its placebo and with a medicinally authorised cream with 4% urea (combined with 4% sodium chloride) in the treatment of dry (...) skin.Patients (n=109) with atopic dermatitis were treated for 30 days with a moisturiser in a randomised, parallel and double-blind fashion. Transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and skin capacitance were assessed instrumentally, and changes in the dryness of the skin were assessed by the dermatologist.No difference in TEWL was found between glycerine treatment and its placebo, whereas a lower value was found in the urea-treated area compared to the glycerine-treated area. No difference in skin capacitance

6366. A double-blind study comparing the effect of glycerin and urea on dry, eczematous skin in atopic patients. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A double-blind study comparing the effect of glycerin and urea on dry, eczematous skin in atopic patients. Moisturizing creams have beneficial effects in the treatment of dry, scaly skin, but they may induce adverse skin reactions. In a randomized double-blind study, 197 patients with atopic dermatitis were treated with one of the following: a new moisturizing cream with 20% glycerin, its cream base without glycerin as placebo, or a cream with 4% urea and 4% sodium chloride. The patients were (...) ). No differences were found regarding skin reactions such as stinging, itching and dryness/irritation. The study showed equal effects on skin dryness as judged by the patients and the dermatologist. In conclusion, a glycerin containing cream appears to be a suitable alternative to urea/sodium chloride in the treatment of atopic dry skin.

6367. An effective, cosmetically acceptable, novel hydro-gel emollient for the management of dry skin conditions. (Abstract)

An effective, cosmetically acceptable, novel hydro-gel emollient for the management of dry skin conditions. A novel hydro-gel emollient (Doublebase) has been developed with improved moisturizing effects.To test this novel hydro-gel for its moisturizing effect, for its potential to cause skin irritancy/allergy and for its clinical effectiveness and acceptability in dry skin conditions.Skin hydration (corneometry) and trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) studies with a single application in 18 (...) of 78 patients with dry skin conditions.Doublebase may be considered a suitable preparation that can be used effectively by most patients with dry skin conditions.

6368. Advised best practice for the use of emollients in eczema and other dry skin conditions. (Abstract)

Advised best practice for the use of emollients in eczema and other dry skin conditions. The recent Dermatological Care Working Group report highlighted important deficiencies in the dermatology service in the UK and recommended that care should move closer to the patient. The report stated that 'expert patients' could become 'sharers in their care' and are best placed to improve their own self management. One area that could benefit greatly from increased patient education and participation (...) is the use of emollients. Emollients are frequently prescribed for patients with eczema and other dry skin conditions. Although the benefits of emollient therapy are widely accepted, prescribing practices vary considerably, often according to physicians' individual preferences. Patients can receive confusing or conflicting treatment advice, leading to frustration, non-compliance, and difficulty in following an effective regimen. To promote the effective use of emollients it is important for patients

6369. Dynamics of the skin blood flow response to histamine. Comparison of the effects of cetirizine and loratadine on the skin response to a histamine dry prick test monitored with laser-Doppler flowmetry. (Abstract)

Dynamics of the skin blood flow response to histamine. Comparison of the effects of cetirizine and loratadine on the skin response to a histamine dry prick test monitored with laser-Doppler flowmetry. In previous studies, we noticed that intradermal injection of histamine solutions might significantly complicate the interpretation of clinical data and of laser-Doppler flowmetry recordings (LDF). Therefore, we used the histamine dry skin prick test (HPT) for pharmacological studies (...) . In this study, LDF monitoring of the physiological skin response to histamine was made in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study comparing the in vivo anti-H1 activity of cetirizine (10 mg) or loratadine (10 mg), 6 h after a single oral intake. As compared with responses recorded after intake of placebo, LDF readings performed at HPT sites (increase in LDF signal) and at 1 cm from HPT (reduction of LDF signal) conclusively illustrate the stable and almost complete blockade of H1 receptors

6370. To dry or not to dry? An assessment of the possible degradation in efficiency of preoperative skin preparation caused by wiping skin dry. Full Text available with Trip Pro

To dry or not to dry? An assessment of the possible degradation in efficiency of preoperative skin preparation caused by wiping skin dry. A controlled study of the effects of wiping skin dry after application of aqueous povidone-iodine was carried out in 24 subjects. There was no significant difference in the reduction from baseline counts of skin flora at 5, 30, 60 and 120 min between wiping the agent off after 30 s of application and leaving it to dry. It would appear that wiping skin dry
