Analyses of immunity in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) support the notion that maladaptation of the immune response exists. Altered immunity is an increasingly recognized feature of PAH. Indeed, a delicate balance between immunity and tolerance exists and any disturbance may result in chronic inflammation or autoimmunity. This is suggested by infiltration of various immune cells (e.g. macrophages, T and B lymphocytes) in remodeled pulmonary vessels. In addition, several types of… CONTINUE READING
