    Introduction Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder characterised by an overactive CD4 (T-helper 1) cell response to an undefined antigen, macrophage activation and granuloma formation. It has also been shown that monocytes (precursors to macrophages) are increased in sarcoidosis. We have shown...
