I am reproducing all the terms from the e-mail message I got about your request, as they don't all appear to have carried over to the web screen:

queratolíticos, queralinína, corticoides, microfenolato, mofetilo, calcipotrión

keratolytic = a substance capable of dissolving keratine (fm LGDT);

I can't locate "queralinina" in Spanish. Could this be a typo for "quera*t*i*na", that is, keratin?

corticoides = corticoids

microfenolato: this must be a typo. There are lots of product listings for micofenolato mofetilo and mycophenolate mofetil. Only one website found with *microfenolato* (on Northern Lights); found 19 for fenolato, including the following, a medical dictionary in Portuguese: http://www.rossetti.eti.br/dic.html and this Hotbot page, listing loads and loads of sites for mycophenolate/micofenolato mofetil(o):


mofetilo = mofetil (This is a Roche product, not produced in the US, but listed on their Spain and Canada sites, in Spanish and English, respectively). Here are the Websites, in case you have need of tracking down further terms:


calcipotrion--could this be *calcipotrio*l*? I can't find anything on the Web for calcipotrio*n*, but lots of entries for *calcipotriene* and *calcipotriol*. Here is the Hotbot page listing all the *calcipotriol* sites, which seem to be sites dedicated to dermatology:

queratolíticos = keratolytics (i.e., substances that promote keratolysis, which is the softening and dissolution or peeling of the horny layer of the skin);
queralinína = Keralin (commercial name of a hydrocortisone preparation);
corticoides = corticoids (C21 steroids of the adrenal cortex, i.e., corticosteroids);
microfenolato mofetilo = Mycophenolate [note the proper spelling] Mofetil (commercial name of an immunosuppressant drug; see the web site below); and
calcipotrión = calcipotriol [once again, the Spanish is misspelled], i.e., the generic name of a lotion (trade name, Daivonex) for the treatment of psoriasis. See the second and third web sites below. Hope this helps!
