Abstract: 【Abstract】 Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is a recurrent systemic inflammatory disease. At present, there are few biological indicators that can effectively reflect CSU activity in clinical practice, and some indicators have not been widely used. To identify sensitive and easy-to-check indicators may be helpful for the diagnosis and treatment of as well as prediction of therapeutic efficacy in CSU. This review comprehensively summarizes current clinical application of indicators related to CSU activity, in order to provide a reference for clinical practice and related scientific research.
