OBJECTIVE To assess the influence of interleukin-8 (IL-8), epithelial cell-derived neutrophil-activating peptide (ENA-78), and regulated upon activation normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) gene polymorphisms in the susceptibility and clinical expression of patients fulfilling classification criteria for Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP). METHODS Fifty patients (25 men) from Northwest Spain with primary cutaneous vasculitis classified as HSP according to proposed criteria were studied… CONTINUE READING
