Title (EN) USE OF CURCUMIN IN TREATMENT OF PSORIASIS, INFLAMMATION, SKIN WOUNDS, BURNS, AND ECZEMAS
(FR) UTILISATION DE LA CURCUMINE POUR TRAITER LE PSORIASIS, LES PLAIES CUTANEES, LES BRULURES ET L'ECZEMA
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Am improved method for prevention, treatment, or control of inflammation, as well as of psoriasis and of skin conditions such as acne, wounds, burns, or eczemas, sun damage of the skin, and premature aging, is based on inhibiting the activity of phosphorylase kinase; when skin conditions are treated, phosphorylase kinase in the affected epidermis is inhibited. This method comprises the step of treating a mammal with curcumin in a quantity sufficient to detectably inhibit phosphorylase kinase activity. Typically, the curcumin is administered in a topical gel. The curcumin can be administered along with other compounds that affect phosphorylation.
(FR)L'invention concerne une méthode de prévention, de traitement ou de stabilisation de l'inflammation, ainsi que du psoriasis et des troubles cutanés tels que l'acné, les plaies, les brûlures, l'eczéma, les coups de soleil et le vieillissement prématuré. La méthode est basée sur l'inhibition de l'activité de la phosphorylase kinase qui, lors du traitement desdits troubles cutanés, est inhibée dans l'épiderme touché. Elle consiste à traiter un mammifère avec de la curcumine à une quantité suffisante pour inhiber de manière détectable l'activité phosphorylase kinase. Généralement, on applique la curcumine dans un gel topique, seule ou associée à d'autres composés qui affectent la phosphorylation.
