Peripheral blood mononuclear leukocyte cyclic adenosine monophosphate specific phosphodiesterase activity in childhood atopic dermatitis

The British Journal of Dermatology
I H CoulsonC A Holden


Significantly elevated activity of peripheral blood mononuclear cell cAMP specific phosphodiesterase (PDE) activity has been previously reported in adults with atopic dermatitis and in the cord blood of children born to atopic parents. We have been unable to confirm such a significant elevation in children with atopic dermatitis, and we have not found any correlation with dermatitis severity, age or total serum IgE.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus.

This feed focuses in Asthma in which your airways narrow and swell. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.
