Abstract

Cell composition was tested in 64 patients with atopic asthma, and in 62 healthy patients after inducing an inflammatory infiltration by grass pollens allergen; PAF-acether; tuberculin; DNCB; and mechanical injury in hours 0.5, 3, 6, 12, 48, and 72 after evoking the infiltrations. The evaluation was done according to the Southam method and through skin biopsy. Similarities in cell composition in inflammatory infiltrations at the observed time intervals were significant and seem to be independent of the mechanisms evoking the inflammatory reaction.
