How to treat chronic Psoriasis not responding to treatments?-Dr. Rasya Dixit
Chronic psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder. The problem in psoriasis lies with immunity. The immune system for some reason is causing inflammatory process which means the cells are multiplying much faster than usual. Unfortunately we do not have a cure for psoriasis. We can control the psoriasis. In young people it become very frustrated because you have to keep going to a doctor and keep using the medicines which they prescribe. Treatments which are now available are phototherapy which has very little side effects which uses the narrow band UV-B rays which can reduce the amount of inflammation in the skin. This is a very safe treatment. It can be done even in pregnancy and this is something I would recommend if you think psoriasis is not getting under control with just topical lotions. Other antimetabolites can be given in consultation with the doctor like methotrexate, cyclosporine. These have considerable side effects and are not to be given unless the disease is not coming under control with topical treatments like creams or with light treatments. If you feel that you have done all these treatments and still not better, better options like biological are available. These medicines mimic the action of the cell itself and they significantly bring down the load of psoriasis. This has to be given under strict guidance by a dermatologist and you have to speak to a dermatologist to understand burden of the disease. Speak your doctor and you will get your correct guidance.

Subscribe to our YouTube channel and get instant access to all of our latest health videos. Stem Cell Treatment for Autoimmune Diseases Autoimmune diseases occur when some of our antibodies attack, for some reason, more or less known, our bodies. In other words, instead of attacking the microbes, viruses and other foreign particles in the body, these confused antibodies attack their own cells in organs, skin, nerve cells etc. Although there is little known about the causes of these diseases, it seems that an unhealthy diet, stress and free radicals are the main guilty factors. Depending on the type of antibodies that get damaged, the immune system of a patient with an autoimmune disease attacks a particular organ, tissue and specific cells. Treating Autoimmune Diseases Nowadays, autoimmune diseases are treated with immune suppressive agents like methothrexate, steroids, gold, infliximab (more recently), or cyclosporine. These approaches bring temporary improvement, but they have several disadvantages such as possible long-term adverse effects as well as the need for a life-long treatment. However, currently, advances in medical research and new treatments are able to give hope to those suffering by autoimmune diseases. Benefits of Stem Cell Therapies for Autoimmune Diseases Stem cell therapy is a new treatment protocol investigated in hundreds of specialized clinics and research centres worldwide. Stem cells have the capability to transform and replace cells that have been destroyed or damaged. Stem cells have the capability to repair the patient's immune system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UQwnnvgNlQ Follow us: Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/placidways Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/placidway/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Placidway/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/placidway https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UQwnnvgNlQ Helpful tags: stem cell treatment cost autoimmune diseases,stem cell transplantation for rheumatic autoimmune diseases,autologous stem cell therapy,patients with autoimmune disease,stem cell transplantation price in autoimmune disease,stem cell and autoimmune disease,stem cell research

Sjögren's syndrome
Sjögren's syndrome A chronic systemic inflammatory autoimmune disease that can cause death if : pulmonary infection, a lymphoma, or renal failure. T & B lymphocytes of the immune system invades the exocrine glands in your body. Eventually this invasion leads to ductal epithelial cell hyperplasia, which cause a duct obstruction. Later it leads to atrophy, fibrosis and hyalinization of acini. Still later there is atrophy and replacement with fat of parenchyma. The B lymphocytes can cause lymphoid follicles with germinal centers in the salivary glands.40 times more likely to develop B cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Females are affected more than males Symptoms: Alopecia (hairloss), Dry: skin, eyes, nose, mouth, respiratory tract, vagina. The dry skin can be treated with lubricants. The dry vagina can cause dyspareunia, which is a painful sexual intercourse. This can also be helped with lubricants. The dry eyes, also called keratoconjunctivits sicca for more than 3 month is an important sign for Sjögrens syndrome. The patient is usually complaining about bad vision, photosensitivity and irritation of the cornea. Tests: Schirmers test, Slit-lamp (tear film breakup time) The treatment for dry eyes: Avoiding drugs that cause dryness for example anticholinergics, diuretics, antihistamines, antidepressants, use artificial tears, or lubricant drops like, methylcellulose or hypromellose. Stimulate lubrication of the eyes locally with cAMP or cyclosporine 2% olive solution, or we can stimulate systemically with pilocarpine or cevimeline. tiny plugs placed in the tear drainage ducts, corneal transplantation. The dry mouth, or also called xerostomia of more than 3 months is also an important sign of Sjögrens syndrome. This patient is saying that she have a daily dry mouth with difficulty chewing, swallowing and even the taste of food is not as good as before. Treatment for dryness of mouth is to drink water daily to help swallowing for example. We can stimulate the salivary glands locally by sugarfree gum, lozenges, or mouthwash containing carboxymethylcellulose. We can also stimulate salivary glands systemically with drugs, like, Pilocarpine or cevimeline. We can avoid drugs that decrease salivary gland secretion, like anticholinergics, antidepressants or antihistamines. This patient also have tooth decay, which can be prevented by regular dental visits with topical fluoride application, or simply by keeping a good oral hygiene after each meal. She is complaining of secondary Candida infection. In this case we give topical nystatin, lozenges, or clotrimazole. Stones can appear in the salivary ducts, which have to be removed to preserve the salivary tissue. We can measure the saliva production, which will be low in Sjögrens syndrome, meaning less than 1,5 ml in 15 min. We can also use techniques like, salivary scintiscanning or sialography. Except dryness, the patient may present with enlarged parotid glands There are also extraglandular symptoms. So the most common is Arthralgias and arthritis. We treat it with hydroxychloroquine or methotrexate and prednisolone. Raynauds phenomenon can be seen, and its treated with nifedipine and gloves which protect from cold. Lymphadenopathy in the cervical or axillary region can be seen. Vasculitis can present itself as rashes on the skin called purpuras, which can be treated with glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive agents like Cyclophosphamide. Kidney diseases like interstitial nephritis, kidney stones, impaired concentrating ability or renal tubular acidosis. Bicarbonate replacement can be given for renal tubular acidosis. Chronic hepatobiliary diseases Risks of non-Hodgkin lymphomas can be 40 times higher in Sjögrens syndrome patients. This can be treated with antiCD20 therapy together with a CHOP regimen, which is a chemotherapy regimen consisting of Cyclophosphamide, Hydroxydaunorubicin, Oncovin (Vincristine), Prednisolone. Rarely splenomegaly or myositis may be seen. If we make blood tests, we can see leukopenia, anemia, an increased Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and some autoantibodies. The autoantibodies are Rheumatoid factors and antinuclear antibodies called SS-A (Ro) and SS-B (La). Except blood tests, we can confirm that this is Sjögrens syndrome by taking a biopsy from the lip, more specifically from the minor salivary glands in the buccal mucosa. This will show in the microscope that lymphocytes have attacked the salivary glands There will be many large areas of lymphocytes with atrophy of the tissue. Genetic tests can show an association of Sjögrens syndrome with HLA DR3. Primary Secondary Rheumatoid arthritis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Systemic sclerosis, mixed connective tissue disease, vasculitis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Polymyositis, primary biliary cirrhosis and Chronic autoimmune hepatitis.

USMLE Immunology 6: Transplant Rejection and Immunosuppresion Pharmacology
Welcome to LY Med, where I go over everything you need to know for the USMLE STEP 1, with new videos every day. Follow along with First Aid, or with my notes which can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/dylkj0bomn3dy7r/AADkMDWMstA0GCcTivBlId0Va?dl=0 This video will be on transplant reactions and transplant pharmacology. We start with a talk about adverse transplant rejections. There are different types, which include: 1) Hyper acute rejection: rejection within minutes due to preformed antibodies against the transplant. Damage to the endothelium of the transplant leads to thrombosis and necrosis of the transplant tissue. 2) Acute: in weeks-months. This is non-preformed antibodies against the transplant and is less severe. This leads to vasculitis. Treatment is with immunosuppresants. 3) Chronic rejection: long term inflammation leads to fibrosis and narrowing of the vessels. This can lead to Bronchiolitis obliterans in the lungs, atherosclerosis in the heart, nephropathy of the kidneys, jaundice and hepatomegaly in liver transplants. 4) Graft vs host disease (GVHD): here the transplant is attacking the host. Signs include rash, jaundice, and hepatosplenomegaly. Sometimes, you want graft vs tumor effect in bone marrow transplant in leukemic patients. Our last topic will be on immunosuppressive drugs. Pharm starts with a quick recap of the T cell, how it activates, and the importance of IL-2. Drugs include: Calcineurin inhibitors: 1) Cyclosporine: this binds a chaperone protein called cyclophilin which interferes with calcineurin. 2) Tacrolimus: this binds to FKBP (FK506) which also interferes with calcineurin. Both of these drugs are nephrotoxic, but cyclosporin also has gingival hyperplasia and hirsutism. Now some other drugs: 3) Sirolimus: this also likes to bind FKBP, but the FKBP that it binds interferes with mTOR. Side effect is pancytopenia 4) IL-2 receptor monoclonal antibody - blocks interleukin 2 and stops transcription. Done!

Psoriasis Treatment Systemic Therapy
Patients with psoriasis involving more than 20% of the body surface or who are very uncomfortable should consider systemic therapy. Systemic therapy is complicated and best managed by a dermatologist. A rotational approach to therapy minimizes long-term toxic effects from any one therapy and allows effective long-term management. Methotrexate is effective in unstable erythrodermic, generalized pustular psoriasis and extensive chronic plaque disease. It is effective for psoriatic arthritis and can be given orally, intramuscularly or subcutaneously in doses of 12.5 to 22.5 mg weekly. Close follow-up is needed; monitor complete blood cell count, liver function, and liver biopsy should be performed periodically. Beware of potentially life-threatening drug interactions with salicylates, many non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole, penicillins, and others. Side effects include nausea, anorexia, fatigue, oral ulcerations, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia, hepatic fibrosis or cirrhosis. Use caution in the elderly or patients with renal insufficiency. Cyclosporine is best used for severe inflammatory psoriasis and better yet for acute control only. The typical dose is 2.5 to 5.0 mg/kg/day. Once control is achieved, the dose is slowly tapered. Close monitoring of blood pressure is needed, as well as complete blood count, creatinine, magnesium and cholesterol/triglyceride levels. Decrease dose if creatinine increases by 30% from baseline and beware of potentially life-threatening drug interactions. Side effects include hypertension and cumulative renal toxicity. Acitretin, brand name Soriatane, is highly effective for generalized pustular and erythrodermic psoriasis, and moderately effective for palmoplantar psoriasis. An oral retinoid, acitretin is useful in combination with psoralen plus ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B. Start at 10 to 25 mg/day as a single dose. Side effects are similar to those of isotretinoin and include teratogenicity, dry skin, sticky skin, myalgias, arthralgias, pseudotumor cerebri, depression, hair loss, hepatitis, pancreatitis, increased cholesterol/triglycerides.

Breaking News - Potential new cure found for baldness
Potential new cure found for baldnessA potential new cure for baldness has been discovered using a drug originally intended to treat osteoporosis.Enhanced hair growth is a side-effect of a different drug, cyclosporine A, used to treat autoimmune diseases.And researchers found it also inhibited a protein, SFRP1, that blocks a molecular pathway, WNT, vital for the growth of many tissues, including hair.The new cure uses another drug, Way-316606, that was designed to inhibit SFRP1 as treatment for osteoporosis. Project leader Dr Nathan Hawkshaw said it could "make a real difference to people who suffer from hair loss".Only two drugs are currently available to treat balding (androgenetic alopecia): minoxidil, for men and women finasteride, for men only Neither is available on the NHS and both have side-effects and are not always very effective, so patients often resort to hair transplantation surgery instead.

Immunomodulators & Blood Sugar
The early immunomodulators, such as cyclosporine and antithymocyte globulin, were blunt instruments, targeting not just the immune cells responsible for killing the beta cells, but other parts of the immune system as well. The drugs were too toxic for patients to take for extended periods, and any protective effect failed to persist after treatment. But even this limited effectiveness was enough to spur researchers to look for more specific immune modulators that would affect the precise mechanisms of beta-cell destruction in diabetes.

How to manage Lichen Planus present in the legs? - Dr. Rajdeep Mysore
One of the conditions that causes severe itching that causes severe problems to the patients is Lichen Planus. The lower part of the legs are the common areas where it affects. It can also affect the areas in the wrist and it can even affect the oral cavity that is the mouth. So Lichen Planus is a type of allergic reaction, to keep it in very simple words. Certain chemicals are produced in the blood and it leads to purplish, violet dots which are very itchy in the skin. Sometimes it can become very big growths on the lower legs, so we manage the by using various medicines. When it is very mild, we just use creams, ointments to give relief and when it is very severe, you can use tablets to suppress the chemicals which are produced in Lichen Planus, one of the effective treatments is the cyclosporine which is a tablet which blocks the cells which produce these chemicals causing these Lichen Planus. Also we have to rule out other problems like throat infection, dental infection or a tooth filling which has been done with mercury and these are known to cause Lichen Planus. Some people even after a course of antibiotics can develop Lichen Planus. So the treatment varies from patient to patient, if we can find the cause we can remove the cause, there is no need for extensive treatment. If we cannot find the cause, we have to give medicines to suppress the chemical causing the Lichen Planus.

Exciting new immunosuppressive therapy treatment for aplastic anaemia
Dr Townsley talks to ecancertv at ASH 2015 about adding eltrombopag to standard immunosuppressive therapy for aplastic anaemia in previously untreated patients. Eltrombopag was originally developed to increase platelet counts in patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) but it was found to also increase white and red cell counts. This was logical in hindsight, Dr Townsley observes in the interview. Although it is licensed for the treatment of refractory aplastic anaemia in Europe, eltrombopag is only approved for use in ITP in the USA and further study data were needed. The study presented by Dr Townsley aimed to provide evidence that eltrombopag could be used in aplastic anaemia setting and included 92 patients with the rare disease. Results showed a clear benefit of adding eltrombopag to standard immunosuppressive therapy of horse antithymocyte globulin (hATG) and cyclosporine versus the immunosuppressive therapy alone. Haematological overall response rates were 80% and 85% at 3 and 6 months, respectively, and highest if eltrombopag was given on the first day of immunosuppressive therapy as opposed to 2 weeks after and continued for either 3 or 6 months. Overall survival is 99%, Dr Townsley highlights, as only one patient has died while in the study to date but follow up is short.

Psoriasis Treatment - OnlineDermClinic
http://www.onlinedermclinic.com Eric Stewart, MD, discusses the treatment options for psoriasis. Key Points *Chronic, noncontagious, often lifelong skin condition affecting approximately 2- 3% of the population *Characterized by red, scaly , thickened plaques of the skin that may be located anywhere on the body, although the scalp, elbows and knees are probably the most commonly involved sites. The joints may be affected in up to 30% of patients *Tends to run in families *Psoriasis severity fluctuates on its own, but can be aggravated by environmental factors such as physical illness (especially infections), psychosocial stressors, and some medications *Psoriasis has a significant impact on quality of life *Like most diseases the exact cause is unknown, but Psoriasis is characterized by rapid cell growth in the outer layer of skin (epidermis), which in turn is caused by increased activity of immune cells Psoriasis is a fairly common skin condition, affecting 2-3% of the population. Affected persons will exhibit red, rough, sometimes quite thick patches of skin often covered with flaky silver skin (called scales). These lesions may Itch. The nails may thicken and appear abnormal,and the genital area may be involved, especially in men. The joints, if affected, may be stiff and quite painful, and change the appearance of the small joints of the fingers or toes.. The severity of Psoriasis is very variable, ranging from localized to total body involvement. Psoriasis can develop at any age, but is generally first diagnosed in those patients between 15 and 25 years old. Almost 1/3 of those diagnosed have a relative who also suffers from the skin condition. Psoriasis affects men and women equally. While it can be brought on by many factors (immunologic, genetic, and environmental), certain medications can cause flare ups of the condition, including beta blockers, NSAIDS, lithium, antimalarials, and withdrawal from oral steroids. Differential Diagnosis (Other conditions with similar appearance) Pityriasis rubra pilaris Secondary Syphilis Psoriasis ParaPsoriasis Lichen simplex Nummular Eczema Lichen planus Seborrheic dermatitis Tinea corporis Onychomycosis (fungal infection of the nails) if nails affected by Psoriasis Diagnosis Key Points *Diagnosis based on skin appearance *Skin biopsy may be performed to rule out other conditions *In cases with joint pain, health care professionals may order x-rays or blood tests Psoriasis is generally diagnosed based on appearance, then further classified by severity and type. The five main types of Psoriasis are: * Erythrodermic: Skin redness covers large areas, often the entire body *Guttate: Consists of large numbers of small pink/red spots *Inverse: Flare ups occur in the armpits, groin and anywhere skin overlaps or folds *Plaque: The most common type, consisting of the conventional red, scaly patches of skin *Pustular: bright red and irritated skin upon which are many small white blisters (pustules) Treatment *Most persons treated as outpatient, while severe cases may require hospitalization *Goal of treatment is to control symptoms and improve quality of life *In more severe cases, those diagnosed may be prescribed more aggressive therapies such as Phototherapy (in the dermatologist's office) or medications administered by mouth or injection (e.g. Methotrexate or biologic medicines) *Antibiotics may be prescribed for those patients who experience a secondary infection OTC (over the counter) options: creams, lotions or ointments that contain coal tar, hydrocortisone, Salicylic acid, lactic acid, Dandruff shampoos, moisturizers As most cases of Psoriasis are mild to moderate, outpatient treatment is the generally accepted practice for controling Psoriasis. Numerous topical medications are available by prescription.Oatmeal baths may soothe the affected areas. Exposure to a judicious amount (about 10 minutes) of mid-day sunlight can also help alleviate symptoms. Some sufferers undergo Phototherapy treatment in the doctor's office, controlled and careful exposure of the skin to ultraviolet light, which may given alone or with a drug which increases the skin's sensitivity to light. Severe cases of Psoriasis can require hospitalization, administration of pain management medications if the joints are swollen and painful, IV fluids and antibiotics to fight infection. Dermatologists may prescribe potent systemic (administered by mouth or injection) medicines such as Methotrexate, Acitretin, hydroxyUrea, sulfasalazine, Cyclosporine, or a new class of drugs called Biologics (e.g. Adalimumab, Ustekinumab, eternacept, or Infliximab) if the severity of the skin or joint disease warrants the extra side effect risks of theses medicines. Many of these medications manipulate the function of the immune system and may expose the patient to a higher risk of serious infection.

►► http://psoriasisrevolution.aedvz.com ◄◄ THE MOST POWERFUL NATURAL TREATMENT FOR PSORIASIS THAT EXISTS AND REALLY WORKS!!! PSORIASIS - NATURAL TREATMENT THAT WORKS Hi. And welcome once again to psoriasis revolution. This time we will see Natural Treatment For Psoriasis That Works. Of all of the skin problems people experience, psoriasis can be one of the most frustrating. It often starts with a terrible itchy scalp that keeps you awake nights...you try many skin products, only to find it can come right back with a vengeance. What starts out as being very itchy, turns into red bumps, then larger thicker 'plaques' of it, often with a white silvery scale. Needless to say, it can be quite embarrassing at work when you get an uncontrollable itch, or in public when you go swimming and people wonder if the red patches on your knees and elbows are contagious (it's not). It is especially hard on kids at school where they can be teased about it. In this article I will discuss a few new ways of understanding the problem and its causes, and some fundamental and effective naturopathic treatment strategies. Skin Cell Growth. In normal skin, there is a balance of skin cells that form and skin cells that die - it takes about 28 days for skin cells to fully form. However, when the skin is damaged, there are more skin cells formed, which also draws more blood into the area causing redness and swelling (inflammation). Similarly, in psoriasis, this process also occurs, although the process of skin cell development is accelerated to take only 4 days, with thirty times more new skin cells. What causes this rapid piling up of skin cells in people with psoriasis? Triggers and Causes of Psoriasis. About one-third of people with psoriasis have other family members with it as well. Despite the genetic predisposition, there must be a specific trigger to start the process. Recent research has found that the problem is not in the skin cells themselves, but is a reaction of the immune system. Some of the immune-related triggers of psoriasis include any infection, such as from strep throat, viruses, or yeast; physical injury (even a cut or scrape); pregnancy; an emotional crisis or stress; and medications (eg: lithium, blood pressure drugs). From a naturopathic perspective, we also know that our immunity is dramatically affected by nutritional deficiencies, a liver overwhelmed with toxins, and by what is happening in the digestive tract - with psoriasis what happens on the inside can have profound effects to the outside. Other factors that are associated with psoriasis include obesity, type 2 diabetes, alcohol consumption, smoking, and excessive animal fats in the diet. Most underlying factors tend to fall in four categories - nutrition, toxicity, digestion, and stress. In my experience, these are the basic components to address in all patients with psoriasis. Conventional Treatment. The conventional treatment of the most common forms of psoriasis include topical skin treatments like coal tar, corticosteroids, synthetic vitamin A and D ointments, and ultraviolet phototherapy. For moderate to severe cases, immunosuppressive medications may be used such as methotrexate or cyclosporine. Newer 'biological agents' have been developed that block specific parts of the immune system. Most of these treatments have significant adverse effects, and can be costly, it's no wonder that more psoriasis sufferers are looking to natural solutions. Basic Naturopathic Treatment. From the naturopathic perspective, some of the important basics to ensure positive results are to improve the diet, detoxify, improve digestive health, and balance stress. Note that topical treatment can help, but full resolution will only come from the inside out. From the dietary perspective, it is fundamental to eliminate the foods that trigger the immune system. I recommend doing an elimination diet where suspect foods are cut out for 3 weeks to see if symptoms improve - common culprits are wheat, dairy, eggs, and soy. An alternative to this is a blood test checking for immune system antibodies to common foods. It is interesting to note that 16% of psoriasis sufferers have an immune reaction to the gluten protein found in grains (wheat, barley, kamut, spelt, oats, rye, triticale). For these people, eliminating gluten in the diet usually solves the psoriasis, amazing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gb1FRDLVTdY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lffGN0R-mk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv8-rhyfgYc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xi3Lx08Gqzo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPx3cqawTh8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKWIN9nNqgg

Psoriasis and Treatment - Free for Life
Go here: http://watch-purchase.com/psoriasis to learn about Psoriasis and Treatment There are many forms of treatment for Psoriasis, but none more relevant as in realizing what researchers are now saying, and what my dermatologist has been preaching to me for years... that the root of Psoriasis is a T-cell imbalance (immune system) and a build-up of toxins within your intestinal tract (mainly your colon walls) where parasites thrive. As a long time sufferer of Psoriasis, I had been looking for a Psoriasis Treatment most of my life and was successful on three separate occasions, one of which was accidental. For the benefit of all who are afflicted by Psoriasis, I will briefly describe my episodes of a successful Psoriasis Treatment, although these were not permanent solutions or cures. The first was back in 1974 when I had a bout with a pseudo-tumor (meaning false) on my left optic nerve. Although benign, when inflamed, it would cause excruciating pain. Long story short... to avoid the risk of surgery, I was treated with a fairly new drug on the market at the time called 'prednisone'. I can tell you that in a matter of a few days, all of my Psoriasis had disappeared. Unfortunately, no one can remain on prednisone indefinitely, and not too long after I was off the drug, the Psoriasis came back double. Today, this drug is only used on extreme cases as a Psoriasis Treatment. The second time, was in 1992 when I was taking huge doses (10,000 IUs) of beta-carotene per day. More on this in an upcoming article... and why. The third time , was when I began my personal quest to cure my Psoriasis forever. After much research dating back to some 2000 years ago, when Psoriasis was thought to be leprosy, it occurred to me that there had to be more to Psoriasis than "we knew". Now researches are discovering and generally confirming what I had suspected all this time... a combination of toxins (parasites), poor eating habits, and some kind of imbalance of the immune system (T-cells), which led me to my own logical deduction and method of a Psoriasis Treatment. But before we go into the above in depth, lets explore the other forms of oral Psoriasis Treatment such as drugs since we now know that Psoriasis is an internal problem, and the external appearance just an expression of whats happening inside. You should know that using drugs as a Psoriasis Treatment is foolish and completely unnecessary in my opinion. The side effects are so devastating that it's simply not worth the risk. Did not the juice man cure his prostate cancer by returning to the source. Did not Dr. Fishbein cure his stage-4 brain tumor by returning to the source. Don't you think that if you can do the latter... that you can do the same for Psoriasis? The most commonly used 'oral' drugs as a treatment for Psoriasis are: Prednisone, Methotrexate, Acitretin (Soriatane), and finally Cyclosporin (Neoral) If you do your research on any of these drugs and pay attention to the possible side effects, I guarantee you'll stay away. Thankfully, most people don't take drugs for Psoriasis and stick to the all too expensive, band-aid solutions, such as cortisone based creams. Now comes the truth about a serious Psoriasis Treatment... very simple, but requiring discipline. And without embarking on a time machine to explain the connection between Psoriasis of some 2000 years ago and Psoriasis of today, I'll just repeat what my dermatologist once said, "You weren't born with Psoriasis and it isn't hereditary, so go back to when you didn't have it. He was referring to toxins in my system. A true Psoriasis Treatment, which will cure you within 6 months to a year or maybe two, will require you to understand that your body is not a garbage disposal and must be cleansed and kept clean as much as possible. This can only be done through a proper diet which in turn will strengthen your immune system naturally, and restore the balance, while eliminating toxins on a daily basis. Parasites in your body, then and now, are the main causes of diseases.

What is SCHNITZLER SYNDROME? What does SCHNITZLER SYNDROME mean? SCHNITZLER SYNDROME meaning - SCHNITZLER SYNDROME definition - SCHNITZLER SYNDROME explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Schnitzler syndrome is a rare disease characterised by chronic hives (urticaria) and periodic fever, bone pain and joint pain (sometimes with joint inflammation), weight loss, malaise, fatigue, swollen lymph glands and enlarged spleen and liver. The urticarial rash is non-itching in more than half of cases, which is unusual for hives. It is most prominent on the trunk, arms and legs, sparing the palms, soles, head and neck. Associated angioedema has been reported in a few patients. A review of 94 cases found a mean age at onset of 51 years, and only four patients developed symptoms before the age of 35. The cause and disease mechanism of Schnitzler syndrome remain largely unknown. Schnitzler syndrome is considered an autoinflammatory and autoimmune disorder. Chronic hives and a monoclonal gammopathy have been proposed as the major criteria, while the others represent minor criteria. Blood tests show a high concentration of specific gamma-globulins (monoclonal gammopathy) of the IgM type. It almost always has light chains of the ?-type. A variant in which IgG is raised has been described, which appears to be ten times as rare. The immunoglobulins may show up in the urine as Bence Jones proteins. Signs of inflammation are often present: these include an increased white blood cell count (leukocytosis) and a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein. There can be anemia of chronic disease. Bone abnormalities can be seen on radiological imaging (often increased density or osteosclerosis) or biopsy. Because it is such a rare condition (as of September 2014, only 281 cases have been reported), it is important to rule out other conditions which can cause periodic fevers, paraproteins or chronic hives. These include (and are not limited to) autoimmune or autoinflammatory disorders such as adult-onset Still's disease, angioedema, hematological disorders such as lymphoma or monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance, other causes of hives, cryoglobulinemia, mastocytosis, chronic neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease or Muckle–Wells syndrome. It is however possible to have more than one rare condition as seen by a patient with Schnitzler's syndrome and cold induced urticaria. The life span in patients with Schnitzler syndrome has not been shown to differ much from the general population. Careful follow-up is advised, however. A significant proportion of patients develops a lymphoproliferative disorder as a complication, most commonly Waldenström's macroglobulinemia. This may lead to symptoms of hyperviscosity syndrome. AA amyloidosis has also been reported in people with Schnitzler syndrome. Antihistamines are not effective in treating the hives in this condition. It may respond to immunosuppressant drugs such as corticosteroids, cyclooxygenase inhibitors, interferon alpha, interleukin 1 receptor antagonists (Anakinra), perfloxacin, colchicine, cyclosporine or thalidomide. The hives may respond to treatment with PUVA, and the bone pain may respond to bisphosphonates. Because Schnitzler's syndrome is so rare, the efficacy of different treatments cannot be compared using statistics. Nevertheless, case studies provide evidence that anakinra (otherwise known as kineret) is much more effective for Schnitzler's syndrome than any other drug, and that the improvement in symptoms associated with this treatment is dramatic. For example, Beseda and Nossent (2010) reviewed the literature concerning IL1-RA treatment (i.e. anakinra) for Schnitzler's syndrome. They concluded that, “Twenty-four patients with Schnitzler's syndrome... have been successfully treated with anakinra.” They add that “seven out of seven patients , that either interrupted or used anakinra every other day, had relapse of their symptoms within 24-48 h; anakinra was restarted in all patients with the same clinical efficiency.” Kluger et al. (2008) investigated the effectiveness of anakinra for a range of conditions........

Steroids Both topical and internal steroids can be prescribed to help ease psoriasis swelling inflammation and itching. Immunomodulators (TIMS) A non-steroidal treatment for psoriasis, TIMS work by inhibiting a key step in the activation of the T-lymphocyte, a cell found in the immune system that causes some of the changes seen in psoriatic skin lesions and plaguing. Oral and Injection Therapies Oral and injection therapies used for psoriasis are usually reserved for hard to treat cases and include three main oral and injectable medications: Methotrexate (MTX) MTX is a type of chemotherapy drug that has been shown to help relieve severer psoriasis. This heavy duty drug works in two major ways: 1. to stop plaque building cells from regenerating at such a fast speed 2. to stop inflammation on white blood cells, which keeps psoriasis lesions from growing. Cyclosporine An immune suppressing drug that was originally used to help transplant patients beat organ rejection, Cyclosporine helps to inhibit T lymphocyte production so that scaly plaque is unable to grow on the surface of the skin. Oral Retinoid Retinoid are Vitamin A based synthetic drugs that fall under two main groups: Isotretinoins and Acitretins.

Cogan syndrome is a rare disorder characterized by recurrent inflammation of the front of the eye (the cornea) and often fever, fatigue, and weight loss, episodes of dizziness, and hearing loss. It can lead to deafness or blindness if untreated. The classic form of the disease was first described by D.G. Cogan in 1945. Cogan's syndrome is a rare, rheumatic disease characterized by inflammation of the ears and eyes. Cogan's syndrome can lead to vision difficulty, hearing loss and dizziness. The condition may also be associated with blood-vessel inflammation (called vasculitis) in other areas of the body that can cause major organ damage in 15% of those afflicted or, in a small number of cases, even death. It most commonly occurs in a person's 20s or 30s. The cause is not known. However, one theory is that it is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks tissue in the eye and ear. It is currently thought that Cogan's syndrome is an autoimmune disease. The inflammation in the eye and ear are due to the patient's own immune system producing antibodies that attack the inner ear and eye tissue. Autoantibodies can be demonstrated in the blood of some patients, and these antibodies have been shown to attack inner ear tissue in laboratory studies. Infection with the bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae has been demonstrated in some patients prior to the development of Cogan's syndrome, leading some researchers to hypothesize that the autoimmune disease may be initiated by the infection. C. pneumoniae is a common cause of mild pneumonia, and the vast majority of patients who are infected with the bacteria do not develop Cogan's syndrome. While the white blood cell count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein tests may be abnormal and there may be abnormally high levels of platelets in the blood or too few red blood cells in the blood, none of these findings is a reliable indicator of the disease. A slit-lamp examination is essential. Recent work has suggested that high-resolution MRI and antibodies to inner ear antigens may be helpful. Cogan syndrome can occur in children, and is particularly difficult to recognize in that situation. For more severe disease, oral corticosteroids may be necessary to reduce the inflammatory response. When large amounts of steroids are required or if the disease is severe and is not responding to steroid therapy, other immunosuppressive medications often are recommended. These immunosuppressive drugs include methotrexate, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine or azathioprine. In some cases, combinations of these medicines are prescribed. Occasionally, if the disease has damaged blood vessels, cochlear implantation may need to be done to correct the problem. Cinnarizine is mainly used to treat nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, vertigo, Méniere's disease, or Cogan's syndrome. Studies have shown it to produce significant improvement in hearing loss in some patients.
