Abstract

This study, to the best of our knowledge, represents the first attempt to clarify the effect of ALA-PDT on infiltrating immune cells in condylomata acuminata. Our results appear to confirm previously reported clinical data, suggesting that rapid activation of specific immunity in lesional skin, CD4+ T lymphocytes and dendritic cells could be responsible for healing.
