What is treninoin?
Tretinoin is a nutrient that the body needs in small amounts to function and stay healthy, and for antiaging purposes.
Tretinoin is made in the body from vitamin A and helps cells to grow and develop, especially in the embryo.
A form of tretinoin made in the laboratory is put on the skin to treat conditions such as acne and is taken by mouth to treat acute promyelocytic leukemia (a fast-growing cancer in which there are too many immature blood-forming cells in the blood and bone marrow).
Tretinoin is being studied in the prevention and treatment of other types of cancer.
Also called all-trans retinoic acid, ATRA, retinoic acid, and vitamin A acid.
