This contribution is concerned with the concept of immunotherapy and the search for the new therapeutic agents. Examples given are, aristolochic acid, Poly I:C and Interferon. The results show a clear correlation of in vivo and in vitro activity of Interferon in the case of virus infections (eccema vaccinatum). No certainty could be determined concerning the efficiency of A.S. and Poly I:C, determined concerning the efficiency of A.S. and Poly I:C, if an Interferon-mechanism was anticipated.

Photochemotherapy (PUVA) with oral administration of the photosensitizer 8-methoxypsoralen and irradiation with UVA light has become a proved method for the therapy of psoriasis. The treatment is based upon repeated PUVA exposures, which are monitored by exact dosimetry within the desired therapeutic ranges. The present study, which covers an observation period of 3 years, is engaged with the practicability of the PUVA method for the treatment of the various forms of psoriasis, mycosis fungoides, atopic eccema and lichen planus, and, on the other hand, with its side effects and potential long term hazards...
