Tissue-specific migration of immune cells involved both in physiological and pathological immune responses is a current research subject for medical science. Several homing molecules have been identified orchestrating extravasation of immune cells to certain peripheral non-lymphoid tissues such as gut, lung and skin. Regarding lymphocyte homing to skin, the(More)
A considerable number of patients with psoriasis show secondary resistance during long-term TNF-alpha inhibitor therapy, necessitating the identification of reliable predictive markers.
