    BACKGROUND: Seborrheic dermatitis is considered to be a Malassezia-driven disease. Little objective information is available so far from biometrological quantitative assessments of this skin condition. Pramiconazole is a novel triazole with potent in vitro antifungal activity, especially against Malassezia spp.

    OBJECTIVE: To study the sequential effects of pramiconazole on Malassezia, inflammation and epidermal changes.

    METHOD: This study was performed in 2 groups of subjects suffering ...

    BACKGROUND: Miconazole nitrate is a time-honored antifungal of the imidazole class.

    OBJECTIVE: To revisit the various aspects of action of the drug in a dermatologic setting.

    METHOD: Review of the current peer-reviewed publications.

    RESULTS/CONCLUSION: Miconazole essentially inhibits 14alpha-demethylase, an enzyme required for the biosynthesis of ergosterol, which is the main sterol constituent of fungal cell membranes. Hence, toxic methylated sterols accumulate. Synthesis of ...

    BackgroundCellulite occurs to varying degrees on the thighs and buttocks of many otherwise healthy women. Among the many purported treatments for cellulite, only a handful have been tested in clinical trials.ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to critically explore the reputed effect of topical retinol in the treatment of cellulite.Materials and MethodsThe study compared the effect of topical retinol to a placebo formulation in a left-right randomized trial in order to eliminate the ...

    BACKGROUND: The treatment of chronic leg ulcers remains a stubborn problem in many patients. Topical 2% ketanserin ointment, a 5HT2-serotoninergic blocking agent, has been reported to improve healing of decubitus, venous, diabetic and ischaemic ulcers.

    METHOD: The present double-blind intra-individual comparative study was performed in 12 women with diabetes presenting with at least two similar leg ulcers. In each subject, the two lesions were randomly assigned to be treated for 8 weeks ...

    BACKGROUND: R126638 is a novel triazole exhibiting potent in vitro and in vivo antifungal activity against fungal pathogens including dermatophytes and yeasts.

    OBJECTIVE: To determine the antifungal activity in time in the stratum corneum of healthy volunteers after oral intake of R126638 at a daily dose of 100 or 200 mg for 1 week.

    METHOD: Sixteen male volunteers were randomly allocated to oral treatment with either 100 or 200 mg of R126638 once daily for 1 week. Five cyanoacrylate skin ...

    A series of substituted benzylsulfanyl-phenylamines was synthesized, of which four substituted benzylsulfanyl-phenylguanidines (665, 666, 667 and 684) showed potent fungicidal activity (minimal fungicidal concentration, MFC ≤ 10 μM for Candida albicans and Candida glabrata). A benzylsulfanyl-phenyl scaffold with an unsubstituted guanidine resulted in less active compounds (MFC=50-100 μM), whereas substitution with an unsubstituted amine group resulted in compounds without fungicidal ...

    BACKGROUND: Acne is a multifactorial disease exhibiting distinct clinical presentations. Among them, the catamenial type is a matter of concern for young women. Some oral contraceptives may help without, however, clearing the skin condition.

    AIM: The present open study aimed at evaluating the effect of overnight applications of a paste made of petrolatum,15% zinc oxide and 0.25% miconazole nitrate.

    METHOD: The split-face trial was conducted in 35 women. A non-medicated cream was used as ...

    To unravel the working mechanism of the fungicidal piperazine-1-carboxamidine derivative BAR0329, we found that its intracellular accumulation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is dependent on functional lipid rafts. Moreover, BAR0329 induced caspase-dependent apoptosis in yeast, in which the mitochondrial fission machinery consisting of Fis1 (Whi2), Dnm1 and Mdv1 is involved. Our data are consistent with a prosurvival function of Fis1 (Whi2) and a proapoptotic function of Dnm1 and Mdv1 during ...

    The skin barrier function (SBF) is an important aspect of skin biology, particularly in the elicitation of inflammation. The SBF recovery rate after tape stripping and surfactant challenge can be assessed by measuring the transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Previous clinical studies have shown some inflammatory effect after topical applications of miconazole. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of pastes (petrolatum and 15% zinc oxide) containing or not miconazole nitrate on ...

    A randomized double-blind clinical study was conducted on two groups of 30 volunteers using either a non-tar shampoo (2% salicylic acid, 0.75% piroctone olamine and 0.5% elubiol) or a 0.5% coal tar shampoo. Subjects were diagnosed as having moderate to marked dandruff. The study consisted of a 3-week washout, followed by a 4-week treatment and a 4-week posttreatment regression phase. The clinical evaluations and subject self-assessments showed that the non-tar shampoo was as effective as ...

    BACKGROUND: Glucocorticoids can boost some Malassezia-driven dermatoses. However, both antifungals and topical corticosteroids improve lesions of seborrheic dermatitis.

    OBJECTIVE: To revisit the topical activity of the antifungal ketoconazole and the corticosteroid desonide on Malassezia growth on human stratum corneum.

    MATERIAL AND METHODS: The computer-assisted corneofungimetry bioassay was used to compare the growth of M. furfur, M. globosa and M. restricta on human stratum corneum ...

    BACKGROUND: The classical management of acne calls for prolonged oral and/or topical treatments; however, some patients request a rapid effect to make the papules disappear within a few hours or days.

    OBJECTIVE: To test the effect of a single overnight application of a paste containing 0.25% miconazole nitrate on acne papules, and comparison with the effect of the same but unmedicated paste.

    METHOD: Narrow-band reflectance spectroscopy was used to assess the changes in E index (erythema) ...
