To explore the mechanism by which zinc acts on cutaneous inflammatory lesions, we studied granulocyte zinc levels and in vitro polymorphonuclear leukocyte chemotaxis in 20 acne patients before and after 2 months of zinc therapy (200 mg/day zinc gluconate). The zinc level was assayed by flame absorption spectrophotometry and chemotaxis was performed by agarose assay. After 2 months of treatment, a ...
Microcirculatory vasomotion is considered to be an important mechanism promoting and facilitating the transfer of blood cells through skin capillaries. Since skin vulnerability of the leg is closely associated with gravitational factors and skin micro-circulation, we investigated by a laser Doppler apparatus influence of postural changes on skin blood flow oscillations in lower limbs of healthy vo ...
