To study whether inhalant allergens could induce eczematous reactions on normal skin of atopic patients we applied birch pollen and house dust mite antigens at 500 times the concentration used for prick testing as epicutaneous tests. Six out of 17 patients with atopic dermatitis in remission had positive delayed type reactions to birch pollen and three to(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (OKT 3,4,6,8 and OKIa) were used in conjunction with the avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex method to classify inflammatory cells in 6 biopsies of the middle ear mucosa in patients with secretory otitis media (SOM) and in 19 middle ear or mastoidal biopsies in patients with chronic otitis media (COM). Mononuclear cell infiltrates under(More)
Monoclonal antibodies were used in conjunction with the biotin-avidin immunolectin method and the indirect immunofluorescence method to detect lymphocyte subsets in patients with dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) in 50% potassium iodide (KI)-induced skin lesions and in density-gradient-isolated peripheral blood. The proportions of T3-, T4-, and T8-positive(More)
To determine whether inhalant allergens could induce eczematous lesions we studied 17 patients with atopic eczema (with or without allergic rhinitis), 13 patients with allergic rhinitis without atopic eczema and 10 healthy control subjects. The allergens, birch pollen (Betula verrucosa) and house dust mite (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus), were applied in(More)
