Elevated peripheral allergen-specific T cell response is crucial for a positive atopy patch test reaction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Atopic eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin disease in which several subgroups of cases can be identified. Atopy patch testing (APT) reveals allergen sensitization also in atopic eczema patients devoid of detectable allergen-specific IgE, suggesting the importance of factors other than IgE in the reaction. Here we investigate the relationship… (More)
