Psoriasis is a common skin disease in which the development of the decisive role played by genetic and environmental factors. Many of the candidate genes linked with psoriasis, are directly related to acquired or congenital defects of the immune system, epithelial barrier permeability of the intestinal wall, and the keratinocyte membrain. Formation of an immune response to Th-1 type high expression and activity of antimicrobial peptides like state at their potential infection. This review discusses the possible immune mechanisms are involved in the relationship between infection and disease process in psoriatic skin. We survey the literature and discuss the suitability of infection factors in treatment modality for psoriasis.

Aims. The study was aimed to identify relationships of immune disorders and angiogenesis in patients at different stages of rosacea. Materials and methods. We examined 110 patients with rosacea. The diagnosis was based on diagnostic criteria. We summarized the role of predictors in the development of rosacea. We investigated pro- and anti-infammatory cytokines, vascular endothelial growth actor (VEGF), fbroblast growth factor (FGF) for the detection of immune disorders and angiogenesis. Results. The immune response in patients with rosacea was of mixed Th-1 and Th-2 type which can be markers of chronic autoimmune infammation. Simultaneously with the change in cytokine profle we revealed activation of angiogenesis (high levels of VEGF, FGF).

Aims. The study aimed to evaluate the effcacy of PUVA-bath photochemotherapy in the treatment of the severe psoriasis. Materials and methods. Twenty six patients aged from 18 to 56 were examined. All patients suffer from psoriasis vulgaris and exudativa. The two groups were comparable in terms of age, gender, duration of the disease. We used psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) before and after the treatment. All the patients received PUVA bath therapy (aqueous solution of 1 mg ammifurin l). Results. Clinical remission and marked improvement of clinical condition (a 76 % and more fall in the PASI index) were achieved in 80,9 % in both groups in average. No systemic adverse effects inherent in photosensitizing drug tablets were recorded in the course of PUVA-bath therapy. Conclusion. Effciency and safety of this method were demonstrated. The duration and summary dosage of UVA depends on clinical form.
