The aim of the investigation was to compare psychological symptoms and health-related quality of life of dermatology patients and healthy controls. The sample consisted of 333 consecutively recruited patients from four dermatology outpatient clinics, 172 hospitalized dermatological patients from two university hospitals and 293 matched healthy controls. All(More)
The aim of the present study was to provide data on the reliability and validity of a Danish translation of the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI), a short measure of the impact of dermatological diseases on quality of life. The DLQI was administered to 200 outpatients and 100 hospitalized patients suffering from a range of dermatological diseases and to(More)
The CC-chemokine TARC is known to be a ligand for the CCR4 receptor which in turn is known to be expressed selectively on the Th(2)-subset of lymphocytes. Atopic dermatitis is generally believed to be a Th(2)-type disease, and TARC has been shown to be expressed in the skin lesions of a murine model of AD. IL-10 is an interleukine generally known for its(More)
In a recent study we have demonstrated that interleukin 8 (IL-8) and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) serum levels correlate positively with the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP), induced by bile acid injected into the pancreatic duct of rabbits. In this article we describe the effect of an IL-10 analogue IT9302 and a monoclonal anti-IL-8 (mon.(More)
To investigate and compare the effects on calcium metabolism of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) and the synthetic vitamin D analogs tacalcitol and calcipotriol after topical treatment, we treated groups of rats topically once daily with three dose levels of each test compound in a vehicle of propylene glycol plus ethanol for 28 d. The urinary calcium(More)
Sprague-Dawley rats were fed either a standard diet with 0.9/0.7% Ca/P or a semisynthetic low-calcium diet with 0.5/0.4% Ca/P and treated orally for 28 days with 1 alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol [1 alpha (OH)D3], a synthetic analogue of the physiologically active form of vitamin D3, 1 alpha,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol [1 alpha,25(OH)2D3], at dose levels of(More)
An experimental rat model, the Subcutaneous Air Sac (SAS) model, was developed to provide an animal model in which neo-vascularization can be easily assessed in situ and quantified using a radiolabelled plasma marker. The SAS model was designed to replace a previous model where neovascularization was induced by chemical injury of rat or rabbit cornea or by(More)
The present paper describes the structural modifications leading to the discovery of a new series of quinoline-containing cys-LT1 receptor (LTD4 receptor) antagonists. A structural optimization with respect to the in vitro receptor binding, the in vivo brochoconstriction, and the toxicological effect in the form of peroxisomal proliferation was performed in(More)
1. Seocalcitol (EB 1089), a vitamin D analogue with strong antiproliferative effects in vitro and in vivo, is presently under clinical evaluation for the systemic treatment of various solid tumours. 2. The aim was to investigate the pharmacokinetics of Seocalcitol after single and multiple oral administration to rat and minipig. Furthermore, the hepatic(More)
