Determination of concentrations of cluster of differentiation (CD) markers in patients with atopic dermatitis and comparison with healthy individuals were carried out in this study.Keywords: Cluster of designation (CD), CD3, CD4, CD8, CD19, atopic dermatitis.
It was found that the mean concentrations of positive lymphocytes for AD patients reached 82.2%, 55.7%, 28.7%, and 21.9% for CD3, CD4, Cd8, and CD19, respectively, and those of healthy individuals reached 72.2, 40.3, 18.5, and 13.1 for CD3, CD4, Cd8, and CD19 respectively. We found that the mean values of CDs for AD patients were high than those of healthy individuals (65.7%, 75.9%, 94.4% and 68.5%) (P<0.05).
