The mediation of tissue eosinophilia in hypersensitivity reactions. V. Comparative study of tissue eosinophilia in the skin lesions of local and systemic passive cutaneous anaphylactic reactions.


Tissue eosinophilia in active cutaneous anaphylaxis reactions is biphasic: the early phase (6 hr) is induced by a low molecular (mol. wt. 300) factor (early ECF), and the delayed phase (24 hr) is mediated by synergy of two different factors (delayed ECF-a and -b). In this study, we report the mediation of tissue eosinophilia in passive cutaneous… (More)
