Systemic exposure of topical erythromycin in comparison to oral administration and the effect on cytochrome P450 3A4 activity
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology
ConclusionsTopical erythromycin did not cause clinically relevant CYP3A alterations, although low systemic availability of erythromycin was observed. This supports the assumption that treatment with topical erythromycin is not critical in terms of CYP3A inhibition. Furthermore, substantial nonlinearity of erythromycin pharmacokinetics after two different oral doses was observed, possibly due to autoinhibition. (Source: British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology)

Use of a Picosecond Pulse Duration Laser With Specialized Optic for Treatment of Facial Acne Scarring
Wed, 19 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | JAMA Dermatology
Conclusions and RelevanceTreatment of facial acne scars with a diffractive lens array and 755-nm picosecond laser produced improvement in appearance and texture at 3 months after the last treatment, with objective findings similar to those published for a series of fractional ablative laser treatments. Histologic findings suggest that improvement in scarring from this treatment goes beyond remodeling of collagen. (Source: JAMA Dermatology)
