General description

Dithranol (1, 8 - dihydroxy-9-anthrone) is also called as anthralin. It is a vital topical antipsoriatic drugs. Dithranol, an athracene derivative, is a free radical generating mitochondrial poison that induces apoptosis in keratinocytes.

Application

Dithranol, a potential anti-psoriasis medication, may be used to study its safety, efficacy, metabolism and pharmacological profile. Dithranol may be used to study is physicochemical properties, as a reference compound and to develop effective drug delivery vehicles. Dithranol may be used as a matrix for matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization imaging on a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer.
