Vitiligo

Systemic immunomodulatory effects of Polypodium leucotomos as an adjuvant to PUVA therapy in generalized vitiligo: a pilot study, E Reyes, P Jaén, E de las Heras, F Carrión, M Alvarez-Mon, J Dermatol Sci 2006

Conclusion: “The immunosuppressive effects observed with PUVA + PL treatment might explain the higher rate of patients with moderate to excellent repigmentation. These clinical results agree with previous reports of acceleration and increase in pigmentary response of conventional PUVA therapy in vitiligo patients treated with oral PL”.
