Glycerol and the skin: holistic approach to its origin and functions
The aquaporin‐3 transport channel and lipid metabolism in the pilosebaceous unit have been evidenced as potential pathways for endogenous delivery of glycerol and for its metabolism inThe skin.
Supporting medication adherence in renal transplantation (SMART): a pilot RCT to improve adherence to immunosuppressive regimens

The feasibility and potential of intranasal administration is discussed and a series of questions regarding (a) the intended use, (b) the drug, (c) the vehicle and (d) the application device (pharmaceutical considerations) are addressed with a view to their impact on the development of products for nasal application.
Heat exposure of Cannabis sativa extracts affects the pharmacokinetic and metabolic profile in healthy male subjects.
Results indicate that use of unheated extracts of C. SATIVA may lead to a beneficial change in metabolic pattern and possibly better tolerability.
Skin Penetration and Sun Protection Factor of Five UV Filters: Effect of the Vehicle
By choosing the right vehicle or optimizing it, not only sunscreen products can be significantly improved in terms of pharmacological efficacy but the potential toxicological risk associated with the skin penetration of UV filters may be significantly reduced.
Respiratory symptoms, atopy and bronchial hyperreactivity in professional firefighters
Bronchial hyperreactivity was more pronounced in firefighters, but it was not related to acute exposure or duration of employment, and it remains unclear whether these findings were present at recruitment or developed after joining the workforce.
Cutaneous manifestations of Paecilomyces lilacinus infection induced by a contaminated skin lotion in patients who are severely immunosuppressed.
Contaminated topical dermatologic agents should be included in the differential diagnosis as a source for severe epidemic cutaneous manifestations of fungal infection in patients who are severely immunosuppressed.
Topical resiquimod can induce disease regression and enhance T-cell effector functions in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
Topical resiquimod is safe and effective in early-stage CTCL and the first topical therapy to the authors' knowledge that can induce clearance of untreated lesions and complete remissions in some patients.
