1st major scientific study into rare inflammatory skin condition
University of Nottingham via Medical Xpress    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, disfiguring and very painful skin condition, which affects around 360 people each year in the U.K. The cause of PG is not known, the risks are high, and although patients often have underlying health conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis, it is still not clear how best to treat PG when it does develop. Now, for the first time, dermatology experts led by Hywel Williams, professor of dermato-epidemiology at The University of Nottingham, U.K., are carrying out the largest study of its kind in the world into this painful skin condition.

KPRC -TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An accidental medical discovery can make the effects of Botox last 30 percent longer, according to Dr. Charles Soparkar, an ocular plastic surgeon and biochemist. "All the Botulinum toxins are zinc dependent — metalloprotease — meaning they require zinc to work, meaning no zinc, they don't work," Soparkar said. Approximately 50 percent of the population is zinc deficient, so Soparker wondered what would happen if he "gave people zinc before their toxins." More

Expert: Reclaim radiation for skin cancer
Skin & Allergy News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Careful patient selection is key to treating nonmelanoma skin cancer patients with superficial radiation therapy, according to Dr. William I. Roth.

Professionals say 'no' to the yearlong tan
The Universe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Obtaining the ideal bronzed summer look pushes students to use indoor tanning beds all year long. As a result, the rates of skin cancer are increasing in young adults. While the brown-skinned look may be ideal for men and women alike, the measures taken to get there can have terrible, long-term effects. Indoor tanning beds shower bodies with enhanced ultraviolet ray exposure in short increments of time. This concentrated amount of exposure is a leading cause of skin cancer, particularly melanoma.
