  Retinoids have been investigated for their therapeutic potential   for the past 3 decades. They have a reputation for being both   beneficial in the treatment of several diseases and detrimental   due to toxic and/or teratogenic side effects. The purpose of this   review is to highlight retinoids that are currently used in the   clinic. We also discuss their mechanisms of action and research   strategies to develop new and safer retinoid-based therapies.
