Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatous disorder with a high rate of spontaneous regression. Clara cell 10-kDa protein (CC10), the predominant product of nonciliated bronchiolar epithelial cells, is a potent immunoregulatory and anti-inflammatory agent. CC10 levels were measured in sera and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluids from 31 sarcoidosis patients(More)
Clara cell 10-kD protein (CC10) exhibits potent antiinflammatory properties. G38A polymorphism was found in the CC10 gene. We investigated the genetic influence of the allele on the development of sarcoidosis using case control analysis in a Japanese population (265 sarcoidosis cases and 258 control subjects). The A allele frequency in sarcoidosis cases(More)
