The blood serum of psoriasis patients, regardless of the clinical forms of the disease, contains a high concentration of the main stable nitric oxide metabolites. The complex therapy resulted in significant clinical improvement and a considerable decrease in the nitric oxide concentration, in all the studied forms of dermatosis. As the measurement of the nitric oxide concentration is a very important link in the chain of nonspecific body reactivity, it permits an objective assessment of the pathological activity process and therapy efficacy.
