The potential therapeutic activity of a human monoclonal antibody to the human interleukin-12 p40 subunit (anti-IL-12p40) has been established both in vitro and in vivo, warranting a first-in-human investigation in psoriasis. This phase I, first-in-human, non-randomized, open-label study evaluated the short-term safety, pharmacokinetics, and clinical(More)
Psoriasis is characterized by activation of T cells with a type 1 cytokine profile. IL-12 and IL-23 produced by APCs are essential for inducing Th1 effector cells. Promising clinical results of administration of an Ab specific for the p40 subunit of IL-12 and IL-23 (anti-IL-12p40) have been reported recently. This study evaluated histological changes and(More)
A constantly expanding pharmacological armamentarium increases the concern for serious drug interactions. This article discusses drug metabolism and how the cytochrome P-450 family facilitates drug biotransformation. Clinically significant drug interactions involving antifungal drugs, antibiotics, retinoids, and immunosuppressive agents, as well as topical(More)
History of the Genus Origin and Distribution Pinus is the most important genus within the Family Pinaceae and also within the gymnosperms by the number of species (109 species recognized by Farjon 2001) and by its contribution to forest ecosystems. All pine species are evergreen trees or shrubs. They are widely distributed in the northern hemisphere, from(More)
