Abstract

Long-term PUVA-treated psoriatic patients given maintenance therapy (UVA doses > 1.000 J/cm2) have been demonstrated to undergo lymphopenia and a decrease in the total number of circulating CD3+ andCD4+ T cells. The aim of this study was to assess whether the impairment of T cells is detectable also in psoriatic patients after long-lasting PUVA discontinuation. A group of 34 psoriatic patients (25 males. 9 females; mean age 52.7 ± 12.82 years), who had previously been treated by PUVA therapy (average cumulative dose 1,898.48± 1,207.12 J/cm2). was studied 1 year or more after discontinuation of PUVA therapy. The patients studied failed to show any impairment in CD3 + and CD4+ cells. Nevertheless, a significant increase (p
