Hormones of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis are connected closely with immune measures. To investigate whether Cushing's syndrome (CS) is associated with immune dysregulation, we compared the percentage of specific lymphocyte subsets as well as natural cell activity (NKCA) in 48 patients with Cushing's syndrome and 48 age- and sex-matched normal controls. Lymphocyte subset analysis included the percentage of lymphocytes expressing CD3 (total T), CD4 (T helper/inducer), CD8 (T… CONTINUE READING
