What is demodex

Demodex - is subcutaneous mite, which is the skin of most people. Under certain conditions it can cause disease (ie, is opportunistic parasite). More frequently, Demodex does not prove anything. Lives demodex in the hair follicles, sebaceous glands, meibomian glands of the eyelids and is a very small (less than mm in length) of the tick-coated shell protects it. This shell has three layers and is well protected from any danger of demodex. In the shell there are no holes, so demodex can hide for a long time and are not communicated to the outside world. This feature gives the structure of demodex special stability, so the disease that it causes, very difficult to treat.

Under normal conditions on healthy skin demodex is a harmless inhabitant of the skin. But under certain conditions it can contribute to the development of skin disease - demodicosis. A prerequisite for the development of demodicosis is a change of the sebaceous glands and the chemical composition of sebum (usually this is in violation of hormonal), violation of the permeability of capillaries (the smallest blood vessels located in the deeper layers of the skin) and the reduction of protective abilities of the skin. Such changes in the skin contribute to the enhanced reproduction of demodex, while there are conditions to bring out its pathogenicity, ie the conditions for the occurrence of inflammation caused by mites.

Today's environmental conditions reduces the protective properties of the organism (immunity) and the formation of various hormonal disorders, so the incidence of demodex Acne - self-healing is not possible  Acne - self-healing is not possible
   It is growing, and the disease itself with each passing year it becomes more difficult to treat, as well, even after the treatment is constantly relapse. Not the last role played by chronic diseases and foci of infection that weaken the body of modern man.

Immunomodulators for the treatment of psoriasis

Immunomodulators used in psoriasis in recent decades - they suppress the ability of immune cells to reproduce. All immunomodulators can be divided into two groups: the preparations of general action that suppress the immune system as a whole (metatreksat, cyclosporine) and new drugs for psoriasis selective (selective) actions that inhibit only certain parts of immunity (efalizumab, thymodepressin, alefacept, and basiliximab (Simulect) infliximab, adalimumab, ustekinumab).

Methotrexate for psoriasis has long been used, but now it is administered less frequently due to the large number of side effects. Methotrexate (tablets for psoriasis) is a folic acid antagonist and inhibits the division of cells throughout the body, causing side effects such as nausea, vomiting, canker oral mucosa, thrombocytopenia, toxic hepatitis Toxic hepatitis - the impact of harmful substances on the liver  Toxic hepatitis - the impact of harmful substances on the liver
 , Kidney disease, and so on. Today metatreksat for psoriasis are used only when the disease is not treatable by other methods.

Another drug in this series - Cyclosporine also has a general effect on the immune system and, therefore, is applicable only in case of emergency.

New drugs for psoriasis - immunomodulators selective (selective) action or monoclonal antibodies act only on the part of the human immune system that causes psoriasis and its subsequent manifestations. Prior to their use in the treatment process should be carried immunoassay to avoid missing negative changes in the immune system. In general, these drugs do not have adverse effects on vital organs. It is an effective treatment for psoriasis, which is now almost replaced the first-generation immunomodulators.
