The effects of oral administration of cyproterone acetate (CPA) (50 mg) associated with natural estrogens, was investigated in two groups of hirsute women. One group received 17-beta estradiol valerianate (E2) (2 mg) (n = 22) and the other, micronized E2 (2 mg) plus estriol (E3) (1 mg) daily (n = 22) for 21 days every month. After a six month period of treatment, hirsutism improved in 70% of the patients. The more frequent adverse effect was amenorrhea. Except in one, weight gain was prevented… Expand
ANTIANDROGEN THERAPY IN DERMATOLOGY
  • J. C. Shaw
  • Medicine
  • International journal of dermatology
  • 1996
TLDR
Oral contraceptives, finasteride, corticosteroids, and gonadotropin-releasing-hormone agonists (GtiRH agotiists) represent itnportant therapeutic options in the treattnent of androgen-mediated skin disease. Expand
Interventions for hirsutism (excluding laser and photoepilation therapy alone).
TLDR
There was low quality evidence for the effect of two oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) and change in androgen levels were addressed in most comparisons, change in body mass index (BMI) and improvement of other clinical signs of hyperandrogenism in one-third of studies. Expand
SOLUBILITY OF CYPROTERONE DERIVATIVES IN THE PRESENCE OF HYDROXYPROPYL-β- CYCLODEXTRIN: EXPERIMENTAL AND MOLECULAR MODELING STUDIES
This study presents the influence of hydroxypropyl--cyclodextrin (HPBCD) on the aqueous solubility of acyl esters of cyproterone. First, a number of esters of cyproterone were synthesized. Then theExpand
Novel Drug Delivery Systems: Potential in Improving Topical Delivery of Antiacne Agents
TLDR
The current review emphasizes the potential of various novel drug delivery strategies like liposomes, niosomes, aspasomes, microsponges, microemulsions, hydrogels and solid lipid nanoparticles in optimizing and enhancing the topical delivery of antiacne agents. Expand
Permeation of cyproterone acetate through pig skin from different vehicles with phospholipids.
TLDR
The permeation of cyproterone acetate from Derma Membrane Structure (DMS) creams and liposomal formulations was investigated and it was found that the higher the lipid content, the higher was the CPA permeation. Expand

Nonionic Surfactant Vesicles in Ocular Delivery: Innovative Approaches and Perspectives
TLDR
This review gives a comprehensive emphasis on NSVs considerations, formulation approaches, physicochemical properties, fabrication techniques, and therapeutic significances of NSVs in the field of ocular delivery and also addresses the future development of modified NSVs. Expand
Niosomes as a propitious carrier for topical drug delivery
TLDR
Niosomes are becoming popular in the field of topical drug delivery due to their outstanding characteristics like enhancing the penetration of drugs, providing a sustained pattern of drug release, increasing drug stability and ability to carry both hydrophilic and lipophilic drugs. Expand
