Analysis of intracellular cytokines in CD4+ and CD8+ lung and blood T cells in sarcoidosis.

Abstract

In pulmonary sarcoidosis, activated T cells accumulate in the lungs. We hypothesized that the balance between the T-helper type 1 (Th1) cytokines (interferon [IFN]-gamma and interleukin [IL]-2) and Th2 cytokines such as IL-4, IL-5, and IL-10 might explain differences in clinical outcome in pulmonary sarcoidosis, such as why patients of human leukocyte… (More)
