Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) – is a disease associated with degranulation of mast cells and appearing of weals and/or angioedema during more than 6 weeks without specific trigger. Medical and social significance of CSU is connected with its wide distribution mostly among able-bodied population, significant life quality impairment and high treatment costs. Immune and pathogenetical mechanisms of CSU development can vary significantly among patients. Actual task of the modern medicine is a search for new clinical and laboratory markers of CSU which can help to determine better treatment approach, changes in disease activity and to predict treatment response.

Keywords:
