The effects of 3 h lasting local hyperthermia on immune cell traffic through the normal human skin to afferent lymphatics, cell phenotypes, responsiveness, and stimulatory properties were studied in eight men. Cells were harvested from lymph drained from foot skin. Heating the skin in a water bath of 44 degrees C (skin temperature 2 mm under the surface 39 degrees C) evoked an augmented traffic of mononuclear cells to lymph with preponderance of large, macrophage-like, Ia-positive cells, among… CONTINUE READING
