PAR2 may be an important regulator of skin mast cell function during cutaneous inflammation and hypersensitivity. However, little is known of the role of PAR2 in allergic pruritus, because mast cells, which are thought to responsible for this symptom, can release a number of different pruritogens. In the present study, we investigated the effects.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
