Background: Several markers that influence the clinical course of atopic dermatitis (AD) have been investigated so far. Thymus and activation regulated chemokine (TARC) - a Th2-related cytokine - increase in various atopic diseases. It has been shown that vitamin D affects Treg cells and immune responses. Zinc as an essential trace element for cell-cell interactions, cellular differentiation, and proliferation.
