In order to elucidate the role of eosinophil constituents in urticaria, we investigated major basic protein expression immunohistologically in comparison with that of eosinophilic cationic protein and the low-affinity IgE receptor in lesional and uninvolved skin of different types of urticaria. Eosinophil activation was studied with the markers EG1 and EG2. Different eosinophil constituents were found in all urticarial lesions except those of urticaria pigmentosa. MBP staining tended to be… CONTINUE READING
