Atopic Dermatitis Exposed | Video #4: Atopic dermatitis is driven by persistent immune dysregulation

 

“We recognize that while the primary events in atopic dermatitis may be topics of ongoing debate, it is the activation of Th2 cells and their secreted cytokines that sustain the chronic nature of atopic dermatitis and are the systemic hallmark of the disease.” Mark Boguniewicz, MD, discusses how atopic dermatitis is driven by persistent immune dysregulation.

Dr Boguniewicz is an allergy-immunology expert and professor of pediatrics in the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the National Jewish Health affiliate of University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver, Colorado.
