November-December 1986, 52(6):321-324
Langerhans cells (LC) were defined by indirect immunofluore-scence using OKT6 monoclonal antibody in the early lesions of 10 untreated vitiligo patients. The distribution and the numbers of OKT6 + epidermal LC in the lesions was similar to that observed in the normal skin. In the dermal infiltrates of some of the lesion, T6 '+ cells were visualized.

Abdul Kalam, Mohd Tahseen, Ahmad Nafis Faruqui, Mohammad Rahmatullah, Mohammad Naim
November-December 1986, 52(6):325-327
Fifty patients having psoriasis were studied with a view to assess and comparc the efficacy of PUVASOL (oral psoralin with ultraviolet/sun-ray exposure) therapy with that of the, combined regime of PUVASOL and a topical. cream containing, urea coal- trar, dithranol salicylic acid and Th. two forms of therapy were m-25 patients each, and observations were made over a period of 90 days. PUVASOL combined with topical medicat on was found to be more effective, than PUVASOL alone. The side effects were also more' marked in the combined therapy group, but were manageable by regulating the doses.

November-December 1986, 52(6):328-329
Semen examination with special reference to semen analysis and culture for Ureaplasma urealyticum was carried out in 50 male infertile patients in the age group of 25 to 40 years, attending a private infertility clinic. Isolation of Ureaplasma urealyticum in 14 (28%) patients and the abnormalities in count and motility of spermatozoa suggest that ureaplasmas may play a role in human male infertility.

Indigenous Patch Iest Unit Resembling Finn Chamber
Surrinder Kaur, Vinod K Sharma
November-December 1986, 52(6):332-336
Indigenous patch test unit made front aluminum discs obtained' from the tops of discarded injection vials and adhesive plaster was found suitable after testing:8430 chambers in 471 patients. This patch test unit is cheap and can be easily prepared in a side laboratory. The discs can be resued after washing and drying and disc material has no cross-reactivity with nickel. The large number of -antigens (up to 40) can be tested on the upper back in one sitting The tight occlusion prevents the spread of the reaction beyond the patch test site. Micio-cuts 1-2 in number without subjective discomfort, were produced in iipt6 5% of the chambers and these healed without medication in' 2-3 days. There was no, spill-over of petrolatum based antigens, However, with, aqueous antigens the spill over occurred in up to 2% chambers. The above limitations can be minimized by close scrutiny of the chambers for sharp edges before use and by applying measured quantity of the aqueous antigen.
