Lucid’s Cellular Imaging Technology part of German Association of Scientific Medical Societies Dermatological Guidelines
March 19, 2012–ROCHESTER, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lucid, Inc. (OTC/BB: LCDX.OB, LCDXW.OB) today announces the publication of the Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF) S1 guideline on the use of confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) for dermatological applications. This recommendation on the part of the Medical Societies in Germany provides users with the first uniform recommendations for the use of this technology. Further, the guideline confirms the importance of CLSM in dermatological diagnostic applications and embraces that use of this innovative procedure in routine clinical dermatology practice.
The “Confocal Laser Microscopy in Dermatology” guidelines published by the AWMF under the auspices of the German Dermatological Society (DDG), for the first time combines the extensive knowledge of practical application and clinical research. In addition to information about the operating principles of CLSM and the currently available devices (VivaScope 1500, VivaScope 1500 Multilaser, VivaScope 3000 and VivaScope 2500 Multilaser, commercially available in Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa from Lucid’s business partner, MAVIG, and in the rest of the world from Lucid directly), the guidelines also contain detailed explanations of examination and diagnostic techniques along with evidence-based findings in the most important in vivo and ex vivo application areas.
“The publication of the S1 guideline is an important milestone for confocal laser scanning microscopy,” states Professor Julia Welzel, MD, a dermatology and venereology specialist at Augsburg Hospital and co-author of the guideline. “The recommendations represent a significant simplification for all users and make an important contribution to the standardization of diagnostics with the VivaScope devices.” Starting with the depiction of healthy skin, the authors describe the steps required for the in vivo diagnosis of skin tumors such as malignant melanoma, actinic keratosis and basal cell carcinoma. The guidelines also discuss the diagnosis of inflammatory dermatoses as well as pathogen diagnostics such as with the mite infestation or in cases of infections caused by fungi, bacteria and viruses, along with the various applications in cosmetic research. The chapter on ex vivo diagnostics focuses on the study of edge incisions within the scope of a micrographically controlled surgery for tumor excisions; such as the Mohs Micrographic Surgery common in dermatology.
