Dermal exposure is an important route of entry for chemicals in occupational and consumer settings. Key to this exposure is the penetration of the skin's barrier, and key to this penetration is a chemical's vapor pressure. Until now, vapor pressure and its effects on the skin have yet to be widely studied. This review aims to provide some historical(More)
BACKGROUND Geraniol and citronellol are commonly used fragrance components in consumer products. Both are listed as alleged fragrance allergens that should be declared in the European Union when used in cosmetics and consumer products. Such allergenic potential is determined largely by effects on the skin once these materials penetrate and elicit an immune(More)
Oncogenes act as inducers of tumor neovascularization, at least in part through suppression of endogenous angiogenesis inhibitors, e.g., thrombospondin 1 (TSP-1/THSP1). Therefore, restoration of TSP-1 levels can be viewed as a possible means to inhibit tumor angiogenesis. We observed that low concentrations (0.1-10 microg/ml) of doxycycline (but not those(More)
CONTEXT The fragrance material farnesol is cited as an infrequent but important cause of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). It is included in the fragrance mix II patch series and requires labeling in the European Union if it is used in a consumer product. OBJECTIVE To review the existing literature to determine the causative role of farnesol in clinical(More)
Negative consumer opinion poses a potential barrier to the application of nutrigenomic intervention. The present study has aimed to determine attitudes toward genetic testing and personalised nutrition among the European public. An omnibus opinion survey of a representative sample aged 14-55+ years (n 5967) took place in France, Italy, Great Britain,(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnostic and predictive patch testing to determine contact allergy due to fragrance materials requires applying a fixed dose of material to the skin. This dose can be affected by the volatile nature of fragrances; little data exist on how the loss of fragrance dose due to volatility affects patch testing. OBJECTIVE (1) To evaluate pH(More)
