- G. Piérard, C. Letawe, A. Dowlati, C. Piérard‐franchimont
- Journal of the American Geriatrics Society
- 1 June 1995
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause on the mechanical properties of the skin in healthy women.
Skin water-holding capacity and transdermal estrogen therapy for menopause: a pilot study.
The effects of menopause and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on the epidermis are largely unknown. The aim of this study was to model and measure the influence of estrogen-transdermal HRT on subtle… Expand

Biomechanical assessment of photodamage
- G. Piérard, R. Kort, C. Letawe, C. Olemans, C. Piérard‐franchimont
- Skin research and technology : official journal…
- 1 February 1995
Background/Aims: Intrinsic aging and photoaging may present different biomechanical properties. Dorsal and volar forearm skin is differently exposed to UV‐light. The object was to derive a cutaneous… Expand
Effect of organic solvents on normal human stratum corneum: evaluation by the corneoxenometry bioassay.
BACKGROUND Organic solvents alter the stratum corneum structure and barrier function. OBJECTIVE To measure the effect of various solvents upon human stratum corneum using the ex vivo… Expand
Sodium hypochlorite, bleaching agents, and the stratum corneum.
- V. Goffin, G. Piérard, F. Henry, C. Letawe, H. Maibach
- Chemistry, Medicine
- Ecotoxicology and environmental safety
- 1 August 1997
Interactions between bleaching agents containing sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) and human stratum corneum are complex and not fully understood. The same applies when NaOCl is used as a war gas… Expand
Tribological and mycological consequences of the use of a miconazole nitrate-containing paste for the prevention of diaper dermatitis: an open pilot study
- C. Piérard‐franchimont, C. Letawe, G. E. Piérard
- European Journal of Pediatrics
- 1 September 1996
AbstractThe diaper environment increases the coefficient of skin friction and compromises the function of the stratum corneum. In this study, the tribological and mycological benefit of the use of a… Expand
