BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic and relapsing inflammatory skin disease characterized by the predominant infiltration of TH2-type cells in lesional skin. Thymus and activation-regulated chemokine (TARC/CCL17) is a chemokine that attracts CC chemokine receptor 4-positive (CCR4+) or CCR8+ cells. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the participation of TARC in AD. METHODS We measured serum TARC levels in 40 patients with AD, 20 healthy control subjects, and 20… CONTINUE READING
