          Abstract

          We previously reported a patient with generalized vitiligo improved by oral administration of the drug for menopausal syndrome (sex hormone-thyroid powder mixture). In this study, we reevaluated the efficiency of this drug for vitiligo, and examined its pharmacological action in melanogenesis.

          On the potential role of proopiomelanocortin in skin physiology and pathology.

          Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) is the precursor of ACTH, alpha-MSH and beta-endorphin, neuropeptides with multiple regulatory functions. Both the pituitary gland and peripheral tissues such as mammalian skin are capable of generating POMC-derived neuropeptides. Mammalian skin is also a target for POMC products; their possible roles in skin physiology and pathology are discussed in this communication.
