Participation of complement 3a receptor (C3aR) in the sensitization phase of Th2 mediated allergic contact dermatitis.

Abstract

The complement system has emerged as a bridge between innate and adaptive immune responses. An involvement of C3aR has been described during skin inflammation. The aim of the study was to investigate the role of C3a in a mouse model of allergic skin inflammation, such as allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) which is a clinical manifestation of contact… (More)
