Abstract

Background: Because antigen presenting is necessary for T-cell activation, antigen-presenting cells should be involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis. In this study, our purpose was to evaluate and compare effects of PUVA, cyclosporine A and narrow-band UVB on dendritic cells and activated lymphocytes in the psoriatic lesions.
