A rapid flow cytometric assay to detect CD4+ and CD8+ T-helper (Th) 0, Th1 and Th2 cells in whole blood and its application to study cytokine levels in atopic dermatitis before and after cyclosporin therapy.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The immune response in atopic dermatitis (AD) is thought to be driven by T-helper (Th) 2 cytokines. Using flow cytometry, higher frequencies of peripheral blood CD4+ and CD8+ T cells producing interleukin (IL)-4 and correspondingly lower frequencies of CD4+ T cells producing interferon (IFN)-gamma have been found in patients with AD compared with healthy controls. It would be of interest to know whether other Th1 and Th2 cytokines such as IL-5, IL-13 and tumour necrosis factor (TN...
