Rates of skin cancer were 8.1% among homosexual men and 8.4% among bisexual men, statistically higher than the rate of 6.7% among heterosexual men. Skin cancer rates were 5.9% among homosexual women and 6.6% among heterosexual women, which was not a statistically significant difference. However, the rate of 4.7% among bisexual women was statistically significantly lower than heterosexual women.
“This study represents an important milestone for the field of plasma medicine,” said co-senior author Richard Wirz, PhD, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at UCLA Samueli. “It demonstrates that the microneedle patch can realize the plasma delivery while also working with the drug to improve the effectiveness of cancer therapy.”
“The novelty is that [the new lipid vesicles] enable the absorption of a drug of greater size than usual through the skin and opens a route of administration of other substances for therapeutic, diagnostic or even vaccination purposes through the intact skin, without having to be injected," said lead author Ana Melero, PhD.
“We created the platform to provide new information to drug makers to help them better understand the amount of pain a certain injectable medication may cause a patient,” Han said. “They can then work to design and optimize the drug formulations or injection devices to minimize the pain associated with injection.”
“These data demonstrate the therapeutic benefit of blocking Vegfa/Nrp1 interaction in the treatment of psoriatic disease, which may be safer for the treatment of psoriasis as compared to other therapeutic modalities that can be associated with serious side effects,” said Dr. Cédric Blanpain, the senior author of this study.
“Our research has a direct impact on treatment management. In patients with M. pneumoniae infections, symptoms may be improved not only through treatment with antibiotics, but also with drugs that modulate the possibly disease-causing immune response,” said Dr. Patrick Meyer Sauteur.
Senior author Professor Sinéad Langan from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London, U.K., said in a press release: “Previous research has shown associations between atopic eczema and osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones and makes them more likely to break, and between atopic eczema and fracture. However, this is the first evidence that eczema precedes fractures and that fracture risk...
