  1. Samples of horses with allergic dermatitis (n = 10) and their matched healthy controls (n = 10) are collected before treatment (stage 0) and when affected horses have been on autoserum therapy for 4 weeks (stage 4). Phospholipid classes: phosphatidylcholine (PC), sphingomyelin (SM), phosphatidylinositol (PI), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE).
