Chronic Urticaria | T Cell Function in Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria
Chronic Urticaria research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
Chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) is a common form of chronic urticaria in which the cause
is not detected after intensive clinical and laboratory investigation.In view of the current
data, it was suggested that at least part of the patients with CIU have an autoimmune
process.This study is designed to investigate the mechanisms involved in the regulation and
activation of the immune cells in patients with CIU and corelate them with disease activity
Who is eligible to participate?
