The most notable symptom of vitiligo is depigmentation of patches of skin that occurs on the extremities] Although patches are initially small, they often enlarge and change shape] When skin lesions occur, they are most prominent on the face, hands and wrists] Depigmentation is particularly noticeable around body orifices, such as the mouth, eyes, nostrils, genitalia and umbilicus.
Exposing the skin to UVB light from UVB lamps is the most common basic treatment for vitiligo. The treatments can be done at home with a domestic UVB lamp or in a clinic. Normally a small lamp is needed if the spot is small. Treatment can take a few weeks if the spots are on the neck and face and if they existed not more than 3 years. If the spots are on the hands and legs and have been there more than 3 years, it can take a few months. In a clinic the treatments are done 2–3 times a week, and at home every day, which makes the home treatments more effective.
Researchers from the Institute for Pigmentary Disorders in association with E.M. Arndt University of Greifswald, Germany, and the Centre for Skin Sciences, School of Life Sciences at the University of Bradford, United Kingdom, reported in The FASEB Journal that they have found a new compound that may provide a cure for the loss of skin color associated with Vitiligo.
The compound, a modified pseudocatalase (PC-KUS), also appears to restore original hair color among people with gray hair.
Karin U. Schallreuter, M.D. and colleagues analyzed 2,411 patients with vitiligo from several different countries. 2.4% (57) of them had strictly segmental vitiligo (SSV) while 3.2% (76) had mixed vitiligo, i.e. SSV plus non-segmental vitiligo (NSV).
They discovered that those treated with PC-KUS recovered pigmentation in their skin.
Catalase is the most powerful naturally occurring enzyme found in the body,and is present in every cell of every living organism.A molecule of catalase can neutralize millions of free radicals found in the skin, but the level of catalase diminishes with age.
Melanocytes, in particular, seem to be extremely susceptible to free radicals, either in the activation of their physiologic role or in deleterious effects (Picardo et al. 1991;Roméro-Graillet et al. 1996). Therefore, antioxidants are considered to be among the physiologic photoprotective compounds of the skin (Applegate & Frenk 1995).
Restoring the integrity of melanocytes, and melanin production is central to repigmentation in vitiligo.
Vitiligp P142 combine the potency of catalase , with the KC-PUS benefits, so that UVB stimulation is optimized.
