Desonide is a nonfluorinated corticosteroid anti-inflammatory agent used topically for dermatoses. Target: Glucocorticoid Receptor Desonide is a low-potency topical corticosteroid that has been used for decades in the treatment of steroid-responsive dermatoses [1]. Desonide induced significant colorimetric improvement compared with placebo. A good to excellent response was achieved in 30% for desonide, and 6% for placebo. Decreased pigmentation in the desonide-treated axillae was associated with recovery of disruption at the basal membrane. Desonide showed depigmenting properties in women with axillary hyperpigmentation [2]. Given the favorable safety profile of all other desonide preparations and their utility as a low potency corticosteroid, desonide foam promises to be a useful addition to the armamentarium, when other desonide vehicles might be less acceptable [3].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
