At the spinal level, nociceptin/orphanin FQ (Noc/OFQ) produces pronociceptive and allodynic effects at low doses (picogram range), while causing antinociceptive effects at high doses (microgram range). The discrepancy of pain modulation by Noc/OFQ at low and high doses raised a question whether Noc/OFQ exerted actions through the same Noc/OFQ receptor. In(More)
BACKGROUND It is suggested that skin fungi may be involved in the development of atopic dermatitis (AD) and psoriasis vulgaris (PV). OBJECTIVE We studied skin fungus-induced Th1- or Th2-related cytokine, chemokine and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) secretion in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with AD and PV and normal subjects.
