The skin prick test – European standards
This manuscript reviews the available evidence and recommends the appropriate use of specific allergen extracts, positive and negative controls, and standard panels for different geographic locations to permit better comparisons for diagnostic, clinical and research purposes. Expand
Percutaneous penetration of some pesticides and herbicides in man.
Twelve radiolabeled 14C-pesticides and herbicides were applied to the forearms of human subjects, and the urinary excretion of 14C was quantitated, indicating that all the pesticides and herbicide tested are absorbed. Expand
Methotrexate in psoriasis: consensus conference.
Intrinsic and extrinsic factors in skin ageing: a review
Better understanding of both the intrinsic and extrinsic influences on the ageing of the skin, as well as distinguishing the retractable aspects of cutaneous ageing from the irretractable, is crucial to this endeavour. Expand
OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals
1. Skin corrosion refers to the production of irreversible damage to the skin manifested as visible necrosis through the epidermis and into the dermis, following the application of a test chemicalExpand
Characteristics of the Aging Skin.
A deeper understanding of the physiological basis of skin aging will facilitate progress in the treatment of the unwelcome sequelae of aging skin, both cosmetic and pathogenic. Expand
Patch‐Test Results of the North American Contact Dermatitis Group 2005‐2006
Nickel has been the most frequently positive allergen detected by the NACDG; rates significantlyincreased in the current study period and most reactions were clinically relevant. Expand
In vivo and in vitro percutaneous absorption and skin decontamination of arsenic from water and soil.
The objective was to determine the percutaneous absorption of arsenic-73 as H3ASO4 from water and soil and it was found that these absorption values did not match current EPA default assumptions. Expand
Age and skin structure and function, a quantitative approach (I): blood flow, pH, thickness, and ultrasound echogenicity
These overviews piece together the immense amounts of information that have emerged from recent technological advances in dermatological research in order to develop a unified understanding of the quantitative effects of age on the skin. Expand
