Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Remarkable progress has been made in our understanding of the pathogenesis of skin diseases mediated by T cells. T-cell subsets responsible for the expression and regulation of allergic contact dermatitis to small chemicals or 'haptens' have been defined further, and the dynamics of T cells involved in the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis have been clarified. In addition, studies are beginning to reveal the important contribution of skin resident cells to atopic dermatitis and the underlying molecular mechanisms.
