Alitretinoin

Also known as: Alitretinoin 9-cis-retinoic acid

Description

Alitretinoin is a naturally-occurring endogenous hormone related to vitamin A, binds to and activates all known intracellular retinoid receptor subtypes (RAR, RAR, RAR, RXR, RXR, RXR). The efficacy of alitretinoin in treating KS lesions may be related to the demonstrated ability of alitretinoin to inhibit the in vitro growth of KS cells.
