Fire Ant Venom Toxin Analogs Improve Psoriasis in Mice

Scientists in the U.S. have developed compounds derived from solenopsin, the toxic constituent of fire ant venom, which helped to reduce skin thickening and inflammation in a mouse model of psoriasis, and which they suggest could be evaluated as potential new treatments for psoriasis in humans.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects an estimated 2.5–6 million patients in the U.S., or about 1–2% of the population. Topical treatments—primarily corticosteroids—have been the mainstay of managing mild to moderate psoriasis for 50 years. Systemic drugs including methotrexate, vitamin A derivatives, and cyclosporine, and biologic treatments including drugs that target tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin (L)-23, and IL-17, are used to treat more generalized and severe disease.

Biologic therapies aren’t suitable for most patients with mild to moderate disease. They are expensive, and can also result in systemic immunosuppression. Unfortunately, long-term use of topical steroids can also lead to resistance, and may cause cutaneous atrophy. Some thicker lesions are also refractory to topical steroid therapy, report Jack L. Arbiser, M.D., Ph.D., professor of dermatology at Emory University School of Medicine, his colleagues at Emory, and colleagues at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (Decatur, GA), Case Western Research University (Cleveland, OH), the University of Alabama (Birmingham, AL), and Universität München (Germany). Alternative topical treatments, including vitamin D analogs, retinoids, and calcineurin inhibitors, have been developed, but these haven’t really impacted topical steroid use, the researchers suggest.
