To the Editor: Eyerich et al. (July 21 issue)(1) evaluate patients presenting with both psoriasis and atopic eczema, and they conclude, on the basis of their distinct cytokine profiles and reactivity to nickel, that T cells infiltrating these different lesions target different antigens. However, they did not investigate at the clonal level either the T-cell receptor clonal signatures involved or their formal peptide-antigen specificity. "Fate-mapping" studies (to determine the cellular derivatives of a cell or population of cells) show that T cells are intrinsically unstable both in vitro and in vivo.(2),(3) We recently analyzed both cytokine profiles and T-cell-receptor . . .
