This article describes methodology used for assessment of ultraviolet radiation-induced suppression of recall responses in humans. Nickel allergy is common in the general population and patch testing of nickel-allergic volunteers provides a convenient model of contact hypersensitivity. Similarly, Mantoux-positive volunteers, recruited from within hospital staff, are used as a model for delayed-type hypersensitivity. Use of secondary rather than primary immune responses allows placement of… CONTINUE READING
