Quantitative immunohistochemical analysis showed that the immune response in skin biopsy specimens from patients with ATBF more predominantly involved polymorphonuclear leukocytes than did specimens from patients with Mediterranean spotted fever (p<0.
This plant contains substances that could increase the activity of endogenous enzymes such as SOD, and thus antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, mainly EAF and 63SF, since it reduced the oxidative parameters (superoxide anion and MDA production) and plasma extravasation and cellular migration, mainly of polymorphonuclear leukocytes.
It has been demonstrated that wounded tissue is characteristically hypoxic (Davis & Hunt 1988) and that bactericidal efficiency of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and other white cells is diminished in hypoxic conditions (Park et al.
