Abstract

Background: Actinic keratoses (AKs) are considered to be a ‘field of cancerization’ consisting of a histologically abnormal epithelium adjacent to tumour tissue. Treatment of the ‘field of canceri-zation’ is important for the prevention of neoplasm progression. UV radiation, especially UVB, produce genotoxic photoproducts such as cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPDs) and 6-4 photo-products (6-4PPs) in DNA, being major players in skin cancerization. The potential use of DNA photolyases in skin cancer prevention is increasingly being demonstrated. Topical application of a liposome formulation containing CPD photolyase onto human skin provides protection against UV-B-induced damages. Objectives: To assess the effects of topical application of a medical device (Eryf-AK) containing a DNA-repair enzyme, photolyase, encapsulated in liposomes and UV filters, on cancerization field in actinic keratosis (AK).

Methods: 13 AK patients were included. Clinical, dermoscopic, and reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) assessments, as well as skin biopsies, before and after a 4-week treatment were performed. Patients used Eryf-AK twice daily or only a sunscreen (3:1) with a similar sun protection factor (SPF) for one month.

Results: Erythema and scaling improved with Eryf-AK. RCM showed a reduction in scaling, detached corneocytes and polygonal nucleated cells in the stratum corneum (p=0.004, p=0.018, and p=0.021), an improvement of the atypical honeycomb pattern, and a decreased number of round nucleated cells at the spinous granulous layer (p<0.0005 and p=0.019) with Eryf-AK while no improvement was noted with the sunscreen product. The mean RCM score for AK significantly improved from 0.78 to 0.27 (p=0.002) with Eryf-AK. Histological clearance of AK in 4 cases and an improvement with a focal AK associated with inflammation in 3 additional patients were also observed with Eryf-AK. A decrease in p21 expression (p=0.042) and a tendency to decrease PCNA expression was also observed with Eryf-AK (p=0.076).

Conclusion: Our results show a benefit from Eryf-AK in the treatment of AK cancerisation field. The improvement was demonstrated clinically, by RCM, histologically and by immunohistochemistry. An improvement was also observed in the two patients with xeroderma pigmentosum, suggesting a benefit from this topical treatment in patients with this rare genetic disorder.
