DEVELOPMENT AND APLICATION OF NEW HERBAL PESSARIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF SQUAMOUS ENDOCERVICAL METAPLASIA
TLDR
New herbal pessaries showed significantly higher efficiency in eradication of metaplasia compared to albothyl, suggesting that this new product could present good alternative to the conventional treatment of squamous endocervicalmetaplasia due to high treatment efficiency and no observed side effects during the therapy.
Anti-inflammatory activities of colloidal oatmeal (Avena sativa) contribute to the effectiveness of oats in treatment of itch associated with dry, irritated skin.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that colloidal oat extracts exhibit direct anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, which may provide the mechanisms for observed dermatological benefits while using the colloid oatmeal skin protectant lotion.
Colloidal oatmeal formulations as adjunct treatments in atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
These studies found that the daily use of moisturizers and/or cleansers containing colloidal oatmeal significantly improved many clinical outcomes of atopic dermatitis from baseline: investigator's assessment (IGA), eczema area and severity index (EASI), itch, dryness, and quality of life indices.
[Comparative testing of Kamillosan cream and steroidal (0.25% hydrocortisone, 0.75% fluocortin butyl ester) and non-steroidal (5% bufexamac) dermatologic agents in maintenance therapy of eczematous diseases].
TLDR
With regard to neurodermitis, Kamillosan cream not only shows the same therapeutic effect as 0.25% hydrocortisone but is even of marked superiority towards other reference products.
An Innovative Oat‐Based Sterile Emollient Cream in the Maintenance Therapy of Childhood Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Despite the limitations inherent in open‐label trials, twice daily application of the oat‐based sterile emollient cream led to a significant improvement of clinical symptoms, evidenced by parallel changes in the SCORAD and PO‐SCORAD indexes and fewer flare‐ups.
Mechanism of action and clinical benefits of colloidal oatmeal for dermatologic practice.
TLDR
Evidence is described of the molecular mechanisms of anti-inflammatory and antihistaminic activity of naturally derived colloidal oatmeal that have demonstrated efficacy for the treatment of atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, drug-induced rash and other conditions.
Results of the clinical examination of an ointment with marigold (Calendula officinalis) extract in the treatment of venous leg ulcers.
