Nitric oxide donors as potential additions to anti-alopecia areata armamentarium

Abstract

Th1-type cytokines play a critical role in the pathogenesis of alopecia areata (AA) and a Th2 lymphocyte-like response may inhibit the tissue-damaging effects of Th1 lymphocytes. It is suggested that nitric oxide (NO) could induce a switch from Th1 to Th2 lymphocytes in the immune response. Additionally, decreased levels of calcitonin gene-related peptide… (More)
