T-Zelle und Psoriasis: als Kriminalfall gesehen

Conference paper

Zusammenfassung

T-Zelle und Psoriasis - diese thematische Kombination war noch vor wenigen Jahren ein Unding: aus dem Kenntnisstand der Zeit heraus war ein Zusammenhang zwischen entzündlicher epidermaler Hyperplasie und Immunsystem nicht nachvollziehbar. Diese Einstellung hat sich in der letzten Zeit geändert, und eine Reihe von Erkenntnissen belegt heute, daß T-Zellen möglicherweise sogar von entscheidender Bedeutung für die Entstehung der Psoriasis sind.
