Flu-Like Syndrome, Bronchoconstriction and Fever Caused by 5-Methoxypsoralen: The First Case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
The recurrence of the same type and severity of clinical reactions after 5-MOP intake, as well as the absence of any signs and symptoms after the phototest, strongly suggested that only 5- MOP could be considered the cause of the side effects. Expand
PSORALEN-UVA IN PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC HAND ECZEMA: AN OPEN LABEL RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL OF EFFICACY
The objective was to study whether oral PUVA with a portable tanning unit at home is equally effective as hospital administered bath PUVA in patients with chronic hand eczema. An open labelExpand
Comparison of oral psoralen-UV-A with a portable tanning unit at home vs hospital-administered bath psoralen-UV-A in patients with chronic hand eczema: an open-label randomized controlled trial of efficacy.
TLDR
Oral PUVA at home has a clinically relevant efficacy, similar to that of hospital-administered bath PUVA, which resulted in lower travel costs and less time off work. Expand
Dermatological drugs and topical agents
TLDR
This chapter discusses several dermatological drugs and topical agents that cause contact dermatitis, including cocamidopropyl betaine, a natural unmodified gum resin used in cosmetics, and colophonium, a known contact allergen. Expand

Guidelines for topical PUVA: a report of a workshop of the British Photodermatology Group
TLDR
New guidelines for bath, local immersion and other topical PUVA are included and are based, where possible, on the results of controlled studies, or otherwise on the consensus view on current practice. Expand
Somatic mosaicism in a patient with neurofibromatosis type 1.
TLDR
This report provides the first molecular evidence of somatic mosaicism in NF1 and adds credence to the concept that mosaicism plays an important role in phenotypic and genetic aspects ofNF1 and may even be a relatively common phenomenon. Expand
Contact allergy to 8‐methoxypsoralen
A 36‐year‐old female patient was treated with PUVA for dyshidrotic eczema that had not shown sufficient response to topical therapy over the previous months. PUVA therapy caused acute aggravation ofExpand
Variability of serum levels for three oral 8-methoxypsoralen brands.
TLDR
Investigation of the serum level patterns of 3 commercial and internationally introduced 8-methoxypsoralen preparations in 9 patients for their bioequivalence and registered the interindividual variability of serum levels over 8 h after intake of 30 mg 8-MOP equivalent doses found the highest serum levels were reached as early as 0.5-1 h after ingestion.

Drug fever caused by PUVA treatment.
TLDR
The case of a patient who developed drug fever during PUVA treatment was the only manifestation of hypersensitivity and neither UV-A irradiation nor 8-methoxypsoralene caused a febrile reaction. Expand
CLINICAL AND LABORATORY EVALUATION OF 8‐METHOXYPSORALEN TOXICITY
TLDR
Patients with vitiligo took Meladinine 8‐methoxypsoralen for 2 to 12 years in an attempt to get a more rapid repigmentary response, exceeded the advised doses by ingesting from 7–16 tablets per day. Expand
Photochemotherapy for psoriasis with orally administered methoxsalen.
TLDR
A paired comparison study showed photochemotherapy to be far more effective than ultraviolet light emitted by fluorescent bulbs or a xenon source, and eighty-five percent of the patients receiving outpatient maintenance treatment have remained in remission for periods up to 400 days. Expand
