Evidence for degradation of cytokines in the serum of patients with atopic dermatitis by calcium-dependent protease

Abstract

Changes in the levels of cytokines in the circulating blood and skin have been reported in patients with atopic dermatitis (AD). We determined IFN-gamma, IL-2, IL-4, IL-5 and IL-10 in both the serum and plasma of 45 AD patients and 20 healthy donors. Since differences in the levels of these cytokines between serum and plasma were found, the roles of Ca2… (More)
