Phagocytosis by polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNs) obtained from patients with psoriasis was compared with that of healthy individuals. Psoriatic skin scales, non-sterile and sterile, were tested for stimulatory effect on(More)
The examinations were performed on 42 mice of the Porton strain. The experimental animals were injected intraperitoneally with the dose of 75 mg of 5-fluorouracil per kg body weight. The first experimental group received injections of [3H]thymidine within 48 hours and the second group within 96 hours of the injection of 5-fluorouracil. Two mice from each(More)
