The kinetics of expression of the intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) were studied on keratinocytes in skin biopsy specimens of sensitive persons in whom the haptens were applied in a standardized format for allergic contact dermatitis testing. There was no ICAM-1 expressed on keratinocytes of normal skin; ICAM-1 was induced as early as 4 hours after(More)
The presence of intercellular adhesion molecule-I (ICAM-I) on keratinocytes of psoriatic skin lesions before and during 8-methoxapsoralen and UVA light (PUVA) treatment was studied. ICAM-I was expressed on the keratinocytes in biopsies of the skin lesions of five patients with psoriasis. The patients who responded to PUVA treatment had a concurrent(More)
Current understanding of the immunological mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of venous leg ulcers is insufficient. In this study the cellular composition of skin biopsies taken from the center, the edge, and 2 cm distant from the edge of venous leg ulcers was characterized quantitatively by immunohistochemical staining. In the epidermis the mean(More)
Biopsies from normal skin (n = 17) and various cutaneous disorders (n = 83) were examined immunohistologically for reactivity with an antibody (CD29) against the common beta chain of the VLA integrin family. In normal skin, CD29 recognized a number of cell types, i.e. endothelial cells, fibroblasts, T lymphocytes and basal keratinocytes. Similar cells were(More)
This paper demonstrates and characterizes naturally occurring antibodies to interferon (IFN) in human IgG preparations. In vitro neutralization of the antiviral effect of IFN alpha and IFN beta, but not IFN gamma, was observed in 12 of 15 normal IgG preparations. The neutralizing capacity was higher against rIFN alpha 2A and rIFN alpha 2C than against(More)
CD36 recognizes a 88 Kd glycoprotein, found on different cell populations involved in immunoregulation and are induced on keratinocytes by in vitro treatment with gamma-interferon. Therefore, we obtained skin biopsies from 48 patients with various dermatological diseases and from 5 healthy volunteers and stained these with monoclonal antibodies OKM5 (CD36),(More)
The clinical, histological, immunophenotypic and genotypic properties of four cases of lymphoma of true histiocytic origin are described. The cases were identified by typing 925 non-Hodgkin's lymphomas by immunophenotypic and/or genotypic techniques, and they all presented with skin lesions. The histological and immunophenotypic examination showed dense,(More)
In this report we have reviewed studies on the clinical effect of the interferon (IFN) treatment of 304 patients suffering from cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Intramuscular, subcutaneous or intralesional administration of recombinant IFN has been used as monotherapy or as part of combination therapy. In general, IFN has proved to be a relatively(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy and safety of twice daily valaciclovir with five times daily aciclovir in the treatment of an episode of recurrent genital herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection in immunocompetent individuals. METHODS 739 patients with a history of recurrent genital HSV infection received either oral valaciclovir (500 mg twice daily) or(More)
Antigen-dependent activation of T cells occurs through the T-cell antigen-receptor complex (TCR/CD3). Antigen-independent T-cell activation may occur through the surface molecules CDw60, CD2, and CD28. We wished to determine whether these antigen-independent T-cell-activation pathways could be involved in proliferation of leukemic T cells from patients with(More)
