Dapsone as treatment adjunct in ARDS.

Authors:
R E Kast

Exp Lung Res 2020 May - Jun;46(5):157-161. Epub 2020 Apr 14.

IIAIGC Study center, Burlington, Vermont, USA.

Multiple pharmacological interventions tested over the last decades have failed to reduce ARDS mortality. This short note recounts past data indicating that (i) neutrophils home along an IL-8 gradient, (ii) in ARDS, massive neutrophil accumulation and degranulation in and along bronchoalveolar spaces contributes to damage and hypoxia, (iii) large increases in IL-8 are one of the chemotaxic signals drawing neutrophils to the ARDS lung, and (iv) old data from dermatology and glioblastoma research showed that the old drug against Hansen's disease, dapsone, inhibits neutrophils' chemotaxis to IL-8. Therefore dapsone might lower neutrophils' contributions to ARDS lung pathology. Read More

Fatal Methemoglobinemia Due to Acute Inhalation of Methyl Nitrite in an Industrial Accident.

J Forensic Sci 2020 May 10;65(3):1016-1022. Epub 2020 Jan 10.

Department of Forensic Medicine, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, No. 13 Hangkong Road, Wuhan, 430030, China.

Methyl nitrite is suggested to cause methemoglobinemia by generating methemoglobin, which may be lethal when the methemoglobin concentration exceeds 70%. However, intoxication with methyl nitrite is seldom reported compared with that with other nitrites. Here, we present an industrial accident involving methyl nitrite inhalation during its synthesis process that resulted in three fatalities and one survivor. Read More

Severe methemoglobinemia due to topical dapsone misuse in a teenage girl.

Pediatr Dermatol 2020 Mar 25;37(2):377-378. Epub 2019 Dec 25.

Children's Hospital of Wisconsin/Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA.

Dapsone gel is a topical treatment for facial acne in adolescents and adults, and while systemic dapsone therapy is known to be associated with methemoglobinemia, once-daily topical dapsone has been well tolerated with few side effects in large randomized controlled trials. We describe the first reported case of severe methemoglobinemia in a healthy adolescent using daily topical dapsone. Although the medication was prescribed for facial use only, the patient reported topical use over her back and chest as well. Read More
