    A letter to the editor is presented in response to an article in the previous issue by Facco that proved that elevated levels of T helper 17 cells in the peripheral blood and bronchoalveolar lavage of active sarcoidosis patients increased interleukin 17 expression in lung and lymph nodes.

    Rationale: Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. Many patients with sarcoidosis demonstrate antigen-specific immunity to mycobacterial virulence factors. Th-17 cells are crucial to the immune response in granulomatous inflammation, and have recently been shown to be present...

    BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of unknown aetiology characterised by granuloma formation and the presence of interferon γ (IFNγ)-producing T cells that cause inflammation and tissue damage in multiple organs, especially the lung. Exosomes are nano-sized immunomodulatory...

    Background: Sarcoidosis is a chronic granulomatous lung disease of unknown origin. The accumulation of activated I cells at sites of inflammation represents an early stage in granuloma formation. Since mechanisms governing the normal resolution of inflammatory processes are poorly understood,...

    Background-Lack of CD28 expression on peripheral blood CD4+ and CD8+ T cells has been reported in patients with Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), suggesting a pathogenetic role of CD28-T cells in WG. Methods-Ten patients with WG and six with sarcoidosis (disease control) were analysed. Fluorescence...

    BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disorder of unknown origin. Lymphocytic inflammation is dominated by expression of Th1 type cytokines such as tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha). Interleukin 13 (IL-13) is a Th2 cytokine which is expressed by CD4+ T cells and has been...

    The soluble form of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) might be a serum parameter of inflammatory activity gauging cellular interactions with possible relevance in sarcoidosis. To address this question we measured sICAM-1 by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in serum and shedding of...

    Background-Pulmonary sarcoidosis is characterised by a mononuclear alveolitis with a predominance of CD4+ T cells and macrophages. We determined the intra- cellular expression of interferon (IFN)γ, interleukin (IL)-2, tumour necrosis factor (TNF)α, IL-4, IL-S and IL-b in CD4+ and CDS+,...

    Background: Impaired regulatory T cell (Treg) function is thought to contribute to ongoing inflammatory responses in sarcoidosis, but underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Moreover, it is not known if increased apoptotic susceptibility of Tregs may contribute to an impaired...

    Elevated COX-2 activity is associated with the development of chronic lung diseases leading to bronchial obstruction, including sarcoidosis. The aim of the study was to examine expression pattern of COX-2 messenger RNA (mRNA). Expression was performed by q-PCR method in bronchoalveolar lavage...
