The chemokines RANTES (regulated on activation, T-cell expressed and secreted; CC chemokine ligand (CCL)-5) and monocyte inflammatory protein (MIP)-1alpha (CCL-3) have been implicated in the development of alveolitis in pulmonary sarcoidosis. The novel C chemokine single cysteine motif (SCM)-1alpha (XCL-1) and the CC chemokine monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 (CCL-2) are also mononuclear-cell attractants and represent alternative candidate mediators of alveolitis. Therefore, the… CONTINUE READING
