Research: BELTRAN-DE PAZ and colleagues,

Listed in Issue 94


BELTRAN-DE PAZ and colleagues, Departamento de Alergia e Immunologia Clinica, Hospital Lic. Adolfo Lopez Mateos, ISSSTE, Avenida Universidad 132, Col. Florida, CP 01414, Mexico, DF,, have investigated psychological, immunological and endocrinological implications of atopic dermatitis.


Atopic dermatitis is a chronic disease with immunological alterations, neuro-immune-endocrine implications, and repercussions in the psyche. The present study aimed to determine the effectiveness of psychological support in the treatment of this disease.


20 patients with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis were randomized to 2 groups: A) transference factor plus psychological support; B) transference factor without psychological support. The severity of the illness was assessed pre and post treatment using the SCORAD scale.


Both groups improved to a statistically significant degree, but the improvement was more pronounced in group A than in group B.


It has been shown that the treatment with immune-modulator and psychological support improves the clinical and immunological evolution of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.
