What's in a Name: Atopic Dermatitis vs. Eczema
The issue of when to use eczema and when atopic dermatitis has thrown a wrench into data-mining machinations.
Childhood atopic dermatitis (AD) usually resolves before adulthood, a meta-analysis of cases showed. Those patients who did see their AD persist were more likely to be female, to have been older at onset, and to have relatively severe AD.
An early clinical trial of a topical preparation of tofacitinib, a janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor, demonstrated that it improved symptoms of atopic dermatitis (AD) and was well tolerated.
Analysis of patient records from Denmark and Iceland found that obese psoriatic arthritis patients responded less than their lighter counterparts to tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFIs) and that they used such medications for shorter periods of time.
What is someone to do when their father wants them to be a physician, like him, but their mother doesn't want them to have the long hours lifestyle? Michael Sherling, MD, of Palm Beach Dermatology, and chief medical officer and co-founder of Modernizing Medicine, was able to make both work.
The drug, a fully human monoclonal antibody that has impressed equally in asthma and atopic dermatitis trials, may be approved for market as soon as March of 2017.
The FDA has granted approval for ustekinumab (Stelara/Janssen Biotech) to treat adults with moderately-to severely active Crohn’s disease (CD).
A new model that combines real-world prices with outcome data from both controlled trials and clinical practice indicates that the immediate use of tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (anti-TNFs) is a cost-effective way to achieve good first-year outcomes in patients newly diagnosed with both plaque psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
Across the board, researchers saw that studies of active smokers showed increased prevalence of the skin condition, regardless of age or region. It isn't quite clear, though, whether smoking causes AD or AD causes people to smoke.
