IMQ-induced psoriasis-like skin inflammation on the backs of BALB/c mice. (a) The back skin of the three groups displayed different grades of erythema, scales and infiltration. Photos were taken every day, d1 means one day after application of drugs and so on. (b) Erythema, scales and infiltration of the skin were identified from the first day on. The cumulative score (erythema plus scaling plus infiltration) was calculated (n = 6, Mean ± SEM). (c) The back skin of the four groups displayed different grades of erythema, scales and infiltration. Photos were taken after the application of IMQ for 6 days consecutively. (d) Erythema, scales and infiltration of the skin were identified from the first day on. IMQ, imiquimod; N, the normal group; H, the high-dose group; L, the low-dose group; C, the control group
