Abstract

The Th2 cytokine inhibitor, suplatast tosilate 300mg/day was administered to 163 patients with atopic dermatitis who had been poorly controlled by other anti-allergic drugs. The usefulness of suplatast tosilate was evaluated witfi respect to skin symptom score and parameters such as IgE, eosinophil and basophil counts, and LDH. After 4 weeks of treatment, the skin symptom score, eosinophil counts and LDH were significantly decreased, whereas other parameters remained unchanged.
