Identification of novel in vitro test systems for the determination of glucocorticoid receptor ligand-induced skin atrophy.

Topical glucocorticoids (GCs) demonstrate good anti-inflammatory effects but are limited by their side effect potential, with skin atrophy being the most prominent one. Thus, determining the atrophogenic potential of novel compounds is important. The aim of this study was to establish an in vitro skin atrophy model. A screening cascade was applied and GCs… CONTINUE READING
