In a previous histological study. we observed the protective efficiency of an antisolvent gel (Antixol3) against the skin irritation induced by epicutaneous application of n‐hexane for 15 and 30 rain. In [he present study, we tried to evaluate the prolix‐live efficiency of the Antixol gel against the cutaneous irritation induced by the application of toluene for 10 min. The possible application of laser Doppler flowmetry as h new objective method to test skin irritation and to evaluate the… Expand
Multiple parameter assessment of skin irritancy
TLDR
In the present study of the irritant reaction caused by 1% SLS in 9 test animals, the 5 assessment parameters all showed values which, compared to control untested skin, increased progressively over the 3 days of application. Expand
Efficacy of skin barrier creams
TLDR
While one barrier cream (Slokoderm) significantly suppressed the irritation due to sodium lauryl sulphate and toluene, the other (Contra‐Alkalh) failed to do so and even aggravated the response, which was particularly evident with sodium hydroxide. Expand
Efficacy of 4 commercially available protective creams in the repetitive irritation test (RIT)
TLDR
Considering the range of PC effects from good protection to increased irritation, depending on the irritant, the need for careful selection of PCs for specific workplaces is stressed. Expand
Effect of barrier creams: human skin in vivo
TLDR
An in vivo method was developed to measure the effectiveness of skin protective creams against 2 dye indicator solutions, and a facile, rapid and objective early screen to evaluate the efficacy of skin barrier creams in vivo, as well as their individual ingredients. Expand
Skin Pharmacology and Dermatology
TLDR
The topics covered in this chapter include cutaneous pharmacology and pharmacodynamics of vasoactive compounds, determination of transcutaneous drug penetration kinetics, and evaluation of the potency of penetration enhancers. Expand
Efficacy of Barrier Creams (Skin Protective Creams)
TLDR
In vivo and in vitro methods have been developed to evaluate BC efficacy, and recent bioengineering techniques provide more accurate quantitative data than supplied by traditional clinical studies dependent on visual scoring. Expand
Evaluating skin‐protective materials against contact irritants and allergens
TLDR
This model, provides an easy approach to screening protectants and its clinical significance requires comparison with an open rather than an occluded challenge. Expand
Measurement of cutaneous blood flow velocity in delayed hypersensitivity reactions in guinea pigs.
TLDR
The blood flow velocity in the skin of the flanks of guinea pigs can be measured precisely by laser Doppler velocimetry, provided the animal is mildly sedated and the time course of evolution and resolution of the vasomotor response accords with previous experience. Expand
Protective effect of barrier creams and spray coatings against epoxy resins
TLDR
The results suggest that methacrylate spray coatings and barrier creams may provide protection against epoxy resins during a test period of 24 h, however, the development of new formulations, adapted more specifically to this purpose, is necessary. Expand
Percutaneous absorption of 3 organic solvents in the guinea pig (III). Effect of barrier creams
TLDR
Barrier creams can be considered to give poor skin protection against the organic solvents investigated and absorption of butanol through stripped skin treated with barrier creams was higher than absorption through skin not so treated. Expand

The laser Doppler technique seems to be sensitive enough to detect the erythematous effects of some alkaline solutions and to present the kinetics of the response. The findings also support the viewExpand
Assessment of skin irritancy in man by laser Doppler flowmetry
TLDR
A clear relationship was observed the applied doses of SLS, the recorded blood flow values and the corresponding scores and in a few cases a deviation from the general trend was observed, implying that the naked eye might be unreliable for the assessment of skin irritancy reactions. Expand

Although this crude method only allows objectivity of the later stages of a toxic reaction, it gives useful information about the potential protective effect of a silicone‐containing barrier cream. Expand

Anhydrite dermatitis in coal mines
TLDR
The anhydrite paste used in coal mines is therefore more alkaline than the hemihydrate paste and it is conceivable that the skin irritancy is attributable to alkalinity when the paste is splashed around during filling operations. Expand

TLDR
