IN OUR CONTROLLED STUDY:
EFFECTS OF APPLYING VARIOUS VEHICLES AND FORMULATIONS TO PSORIATIC TISSUE (PART 1)
Results of this study show that various formulations have the ability to significantly inhibit the production of interleukin IL-6 in vitro, when used alone and in combination with mometasone furoate and calcitriol. The reduction in IL-6 levels within psoriasis tissues could potentially lead to a reduced inflammatory response and cellular proliferation associated with psoriasis. Results also showed that XemaTop is superior to the reference product as a vehicle for the delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients (mometasone furoate and calcitriol) with anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative properties. This promising data suggests that XemaTop may be a valuable base for formulations targeting these types of patients.
