ABSTRACT
Compares occurrences of respective human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I antigens in patients with sarcoidosis (SA), tuberculosis (TB) and healthy controls in Poland. Identification of the most common and less common HLA among SA patients; Clinical characteristics of SA, TB and pulmonary SA patients; Association of HLA in SA and TB patients with an expression pattern specific and different for each group.

    BACKGROUND: The human leucocyte antigen (HLA) system plays an important role in the modulation of the immune response. An association between HLA and pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) has been examined in several populations but the results have been inconsistent. The aim of this study was to evaluate...

    Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease with no definite etiology, but a lot of potential precipitating factors. Familial sarcoidosis was mentioned in the literature long time ago and has been associated with different HLA phenotypes with a prevalence reaching values up to 4% and more; however, it was...

    Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology, with several clinical manifestations. Löfgren's syndrome is an acute type of sarcoidosis, characterized by the triad of arthritis, erythema nodosum, and bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy (BHL), which spontaneously resolve within about...

    The objective of this study was to investigate how the development of sarcoidosis influences the disease course of mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD). The cellular composition of MCTD-associated sarcoidosis granulomas was evaluated and also the disease-accompanying T-cell activation and...

    A recent genome-wide association study in a German population and two subsequent studies in European populations found that a non-synonymous single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs1049550, within the annexin A11 (ANXA11) gene was associated with susceptibility to sarcoidosis. We sought to...

    The sarcoidosis genetic analysis (SAGA) study previously identified eight chromosomal regions with suggestive evidence for linkage to sarcoidosis susceptibility in African-American sib pairs. Since the clinical course of sarcoidosis is variable and likely under genetic control, we used the...
