Abstract

It is certain that CsA is a very effective drug for the treatment of psoriasis and that CsA acts preferentially on T lymphocytes. It is tempting to speculate that activated T cells play a role in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. The rapid relapse of the disease after discontinuation of CsA treatment supports the idea that activated T lymphocytes are reversibly inactivated by the drug.
