ALLERGIC CONTACT DERMATITIS

  • Contact dermatitis is adverse cutaneous reaction resulting from direct contact with irritant or allergic substances.
    The skin reaction is an inflammation-driven process characterized by swollen itchy red rash or rough and dry skin.


    OXAZOLONE model

    Oxazolone is an allergic contact dermatitis inducer resulting in a type I cytokine response and has therefore been used as an animal model for identifying potential anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulating drugs.

  • Animal model of contact dermatitis


    NEUROFIT conducts screening and profiling of drug candidates in oxazolone-induced contact dermatitis.
    Other animal models on inflammatory disorders are also available.


    OXAZOLONE model
  • Dexamethasone

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat. Dexamethasone treatment signficantly reduced the reaction.




  • Apremilast

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat (blue bar).Topical application of Apremilast markedly reduced the ear inflammation (red bars).


  • Calcipotriol

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat (blue bar).Topical application of Calcipotriol markedly reduced the ear inflammation (red bars).


  • Clobetasol

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat (blue bar).Topical application of Clobetasol markedly reduced the ear inflammation (red bars).



  • Dimethyl fumarate

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat (blue bar).Topical application of Dimethyl fumarate markedly reduced the ear inflammation (red bars).


  • Tacrolimus

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat (blue bar).Topical application of Tacrolimus markedly reduced the ear inflammation (red bars).


  • Tofacitinib

    Ear swelling induced by oxazolone challenge in the rat (blue bar).Topical application of Tofacitinib markedly reduced the ear inflammation (red bars).
