Inhibition of contact sensitizer-induced migration of human Langerhans cells by matrix metalloproteinase inhibitors

Abstract

Emigration of Langerhans cells (LC) from the epidermis upon exposure to contact sensitizers is regarded as an essential event in the development of contact sensitization. Since migration of several types of cells depends on the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), in the present study we tested whether MMP inhibitors (BB94, BB2116 and CT1166) can… (More)
