Increased monocyte chemotaxis towards leukotriene B4 and platelet activating factor in patients with inflammatory dermatoses.

Abstract

In vitro monocyte chemotaxis towards leukotriene B4(LTB4) and platelet activating factor (PAF) was studied with cells from 51 patients with various inflammatory dermatoses and 12 normal volunteers. Monocytes from normal subjects responded poorly to LTB4 (10(-8)-10(-12) M) and PAF (10(-6)-10(-10) M), and cells from patients with urticaria pigmentosa and… (More)
