• Further attempts to induce immunological tolerance in 29 psoriatic patients treated topically with mechlorethamine hydrochloride have not been successful using the intravenous route. The rate of sensitization achieved (65%) is not substantially different from the rate for those patients who had no attempt to induce tolerance (55.5%).
