Answer

Retinoids

Retinoids regulate cell growth and proliferation.

Acitretin (Soriatane)

Acitretin is a retinoic acid analog, similar to etretinate and isotretinoin. Etretinate is the main metabolite and has demonstrated clinical effects close to those seen with etretinate. The mechanism of action is unknown.
