Serum IgE and Peripheral Blood T-Lymphocytes in Parientis with Atopic Dermatitis


During recent years, many investigators studied to confirm the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis but it remains obscure. However, two major proposals, the B-padrenergic blockade hypothesis of Szentivanyi and the immunological hypothesis, have been advanced. The significant role of IgE in the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis was considered since the discovery of elevated IgE levels in atopic dermatitis in 1969. However, recent various reports have indicated the existence of immune defects not only in humoral but also in cellular immune status of patients with atopic dermatitis. This study was undertaken to assess the humoral and cellular immune status of patients with atopic dermatitis using in vitro immune parametera The relationship between the humoral and cellular immune status of atopic subjects and the severity of disease was examined reapectively. The effect of the corticosteroid administration on the serum IgE levels of the patients with atopic dermatitis was followed. Eighty-three patients with atopic dermatitis, diagnosed and treated at the Department of Dermatology, Soon Chun Hyang University Hospital from October, 1988 to September, 1981 and twenty-one normal healthy subjects were included in this: study. Serum lgE levels were measured by Phadebas IgE (paper radio-immunosorbent technique) and peripheral blood T-lymphocytes (early and total) wer enumerated by the E-rosette technique.
