Treating to Target(s) With Interleukin-17 Inhibitors.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Feb 11:1203475418824565. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

12 University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Background:: The treat-to-target (T2T) strategy has become established in several medical specialties as a key guidance to optimal therapeutic decision making. T2T may be effective in the assessment of the biologic class of agents called interleukin (IL)-17 inhibitors, which are emerging as a safe and effective treatment option for autoimmune inflammatory conditions such as plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and ankylosing spondylitis (AS).

Objective:: The objective of this article is to use a T2T approach for the evaluation of the effectiveness and safety of IL-17 inhibitors in the management of patients with plaque psoriasis, PsA, and AS. Read More

A Qualitative Analysis of Canadian Indoor Tanning Policies.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Jan 28:1203475418825114. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

2 Photomedicine Institute, Vancouver Coastal Health and Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Canada.

Background:: The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies artificial tanning devices as Group 1 human carcinogens. Studies have shown that use of indoor tanning before age 35 can increase the risk of melanoma development by 75%. It has therefore been recommended that indoor tanning use be restricted in individuals younger than age 18. Read More

The Use of Janus Kinase Inhibitors in Alopecia Areata: A Review of the Literature.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Jan 28:1203475418824079. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

1 SKiN Centre for Dermatology, Peterborough, ON, Canada.

Alopecia areata (AA) is a chronic, immune-mediated disorder that targets hair follicle epithelium, thereby restricting hair growth in localized patches. Although several therapies for AA have been tested, responses with traditional therapies have been limited. In recent years, numerous reports have been published of patients with AA responding to Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors. Read More

Combination Therapies for Hidradenitis Suppurativa: A Retrospective Chart Review of 31 Patients.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Jan 18:1203475418823529. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

2 Division of Dermatology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa and The Ottawa Hospital, ON, Canada.

Background:: Although a variety of medical and surgical interventions exist for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), it remains a challenging disease to manage because of its variable presentation and unpredictable clinical course. Apart from the combination of clindamycin and rifampin, the success of other combination therapies is largely unknown.

Objectives:: The goal of our study was to examine the clinical utility of various combination therapies for the treatment of HS. Read More

The Efficacy of Platelet-Rich Plasma in the Field of Hair Restoration and Facial Aesthetics-A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Jan 4:1203475418818073. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

2 Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of Toronto School of Medicine, Canada.

As a promising alternative to traditional treatment, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is being used to encourage hair growth through the release of growth factors and cytokines. In addition to hair restoration, PRP's multifactorial capabilities can also be used to treat aging skin, facial scarring, and acne. The purpose of this review is to critically examine the success of PRP in the field of dermatology, with specific attention to the role of PRP in hair restoration. Read More

J Cutan Med Surg 2018 Dec 17:1203475418820868. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

2 Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Marmara University School of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

J Cutan Med Surg 2018 Nov/Dec;22(1_suppl):10S-16S

Clinicians rely on clinical measures to define the severity of atopic dermatitis and assess outcomes of therapy. These measures can be objective (ie, physician assessments of disease severity) or subjective (ie, patient-reported symptoms and quality of life outcomes). In this review, the most commonly used tools for assessing atopic dermatitis severity in adult patients are presented and compared. Read More

J Cutan Med Surg 2018 Nov/Dec;22(1_suppl):17S-20S

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is often associated with other atopic diseases, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopy-associated eye disorders, and eosinophilic esophagitis. Depression and anxiety are also comorbidities to AD that significantly affect quality of life and should be screened for in patients with AD. Links to other comorbidities such as cardiovascular disease and malignancy are considered inconclusive, but patient counselling and screening may be appropriate in some patients. Read More

Conventional, full-body phototherapy equipment is costly and therefore patients are usually treated in dermatology centres. Such office-based therapy is often not feasible for those patients who live far away from a phototherapy centre due to lost time and wages, inability to travel because of extensive skin disease, or prohibitive travel costs. Home phototherapy has emerged as a modality that meets the needs of those patients. Read More
