Lesional elastase activity in psoriasis. Diagnostic and prognostic significance.

Abstract

Human leukocyte elastase, a neutrophil-derived serine protease, is present in psoriatic lesions in an enzymatically active form. Our purpose was to assess the significance of human leukocyte elastase determinations in estimating the inflammatory activity of psoriatic lesions. A standardized method was used to analyse lesional elastase activity. Elastase… (More)
