The immunopathogenesis of BD is believed to be T cell-mediated. The objective of this study was to characterize the activation stage and cytokine profile of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL), with particular emphasis on gammadelta T cells. Venous blood was collected from 20 patients with BD, and for comparison, from 11 patients with RAS and from 15 healthy controls. Both the expression of activation markers (CD25, CD29, CD40 ligand, CD69 and HLA-DR) on freshly isolated PBL and T cell subsets… CONTINUE READING
