Dapsone Resurrected For Chronic Urticaria - Article

Recommended Posts

This was in my inbox this morning.

Would take further reading to find out if test subjects were screened for DH or Celiac.

 

Apparently, I can't link to the article without going into my personal account.... so, here's the info. Go to Medscape http://www.medscape.com and get a free account, and you can read it.

No, they were not tested for celiac disease.

An excerpt:

 

Before starting therapy with dapsone, patients underwent
the following laboratory assessment: full blood cell count
(including differential white blood cell count, platelet and
reticulocyte count), liver and renal function tests, urinalysis
and glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase levels. Full blood cell
count was repeated 2 weeks after initiation of therapy and then
every 4–6 weeks.

They don't say. And the study was on;y done on 11 people. I kind of don't like studies involving so few people.
