    Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disorder of unknown cause, affecting multiple organs, but mainly the lungs. The exact order of immunological events remains obscure. Reviewing current literature, combined with careful clinical observations, we propose a model for granuloma formation in pulmonary...

    Background: Pulmonary sarcoidosis involves an intense leukocyte infiltration of the lung with the formation of non-necrotizing granulomas. CC chemokines (chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2)-CCL5) are chemoattractants of mononuclear cells and act through seven transmembrane G-coupled receptors....

    BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Sarcoidosis is characterised by a compartmentalisation of CD4 helper 1 (Th1) lymphocytes and activated macrophages in involved organs, including the lung. Recently, Th17 effector CD4 cells have been claimed to be involved in the pathogenesis of granuloma formation. The...

    Objectives: Pulmonary sarcoidosis is an immune-mediated disease, and some patients can be effectively treated with corticosteroids. However, nearly half of all sarcoidosis patients relapse after corticosteroid withdrawal. Different subsets of CD4+ helper T cells participate in the...

    Background: Identification of serum proteins that track with disease course in sarcoidosis may have clinical and pathologic importance. We previously identified up-regulated transcripts for interferon-inducible chemokines CXCL9, and CXCL10, in blood of sarcoidosis patients compared to controls....

    Aim: Analysing bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) lymphocyte subsets to determine the ratio of CD4+ to CD8+ lymphocytes can be used in differential diagnosis of sarcoidosis. CD4+/ CD8+ ratio in BAL is highly variable in sarcoidosis. Materials and Methods: In order to evaluate the diagnostic...

N.; Niewold, Timothy B. // PLoS ONE;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 2, p1 

    Background: Sarcoidosis is a poorly understood chronic inflammatory condition. Infiltration of affected organs by lymphocytes is characteristic of sarcoidosis, however previous reports suggest that circulating lymphocyte counts are low in some patients with the disease. The goal of this study...
