Study to Determine the Effect of an Anti-IgE Agent on Inflammatory Cells in the Skin of Atopic Dermatitis Patients
Elevated levels of immunoglobuline E in blood are said to promote the occurence of atopic dermatitis; in fact, many patients with atopic dermatitis have high IgE levels. This study tried to explore whether the depletion of IgE from blood and skin might result in a change of immunological parameters and might alter the clinical course of the disease.
