Cytokine expression in psoriatic skin lesions during PUVA therapy


To determine whether an improvement in skin lesions as a result of PUVA therapy may be correlated with changes in cytokine patterns, RT-PCR amplification was used to compare the levels of IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, TNF-α and IFN-γ cytokine mRNA expression in serial biopsies from three chronic plaque psoriatic patients. In each case, 3-mm punch biopsies were… (More)
