    Objective. Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disorder characterized by granulomas. Although the aetiology is unknown, sarcoidosis is thought to be mediated by Th1 lymphocytes. Recently, IL-17A has been implicated in granuloma formation in various diseases, including tuberculosis. Therefore,...

    Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disease, which is thought to result from an aberrant immune response. CD4+ T lymphocytes play an important role in the development of granulomas. Previously, the immunopathogenesis of sarcoidosis was focused on Th1/Th2 disturbances. The aim of this study...

    Considerable evidence exists to show that activated T lymphocytes preferentially accumulate at sites of disease activity in sarcoidosis. Langerhans cells, which can be recognized by reactivity with an antibody to the T6 antigen are thought to play a primary role in T-lymphocyte activation by the...

    Background: Remodeling of lung tissues during the process of granuloma formation requires significant restructuring of the extra-cellular matrix and cathepsins K, L and S are among the strongest extra-cellular matrix degrading enzymes. Cathepsin K is highly expressed in various pathological...

    Background: Pulmonary sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease, characterized by an accumulation of CD4+ lymphocytes and the formation of non-caseating epithelioid cell granulomas in the lungs. The disease either resolves spontaneously or develops into a chronic disease with fibrosis. The...
