Efficacy of the saponin component of Impatiens capensis Meerb.in preventing urushiol-induced contact dermatitis.
TLDR
Both saponin containing extracts and all soaps tested were effective in reducing poison ivy dermatitis; thus, saponins content correlates with PI rash prevention. Expand
The effectiveness of jewelweed, Impatiens capensis, the related cultivar I. balsamina and the component, lawsone in preventing post poison ivy exposure contact dermatitis.
TLDR
Jewelweed mash was effective in reducing poison ivy dermatitis, supporting ethnobotanical use; however, jewelweed extracts were not effective; and soaps made of these extracts were effective but no more so than jewelweed-free soaps. Expand
Gene expression profiling in the human keratinocyte cell line, hacat exposed to urushiol isolated from sap of korean lacquer tree (Rhus verniciflua Stokes)
TLDR
Investigating the changes in gene expression in HaCaT cells upon stimulation of RVS extracts provides for the first time RVS-specific genes expression pattern corresponding to gene expression profiles, which could help in understanding the mechanism by which RVS affects the skin. Expand
Urushiol detection using a profluorescent nitroxide.
A method to visually detect minute amounts of urushiol, the toxic catechol from poison oak, poison ivy, and poison sumac, has been developed utilizing the reaction of a profluorescent nitroxide withExpand

SODIUM PERBORATE OINTMENT AND POISON IVY DERMATITIS

TLDR
The recorded history of poison ivy dermatitis begins with these words of Captain John Smith in 1609; McNair's wonderful little book ``Rhus Dermatitis" is the most complete treatment of the subject; in it knowledge is summarized up to 1923. Expand

Influence of oral prednisone on patch-test reactions to Rhus antigen.
TLDR
Results showed definite and significant diminution of reactions during treatment with prednisone, although rarely complete disappearance, which may be incorrectly interpreted as mild irritant reactions or reactions to occlusion and thus read as negative. Expand
