In granulomatous inflammatory lung diseases such as sarcoidosis, the balance of cytokine production by activated T cells in the lungs may influence clinical disease outcome. To investigate the potential of T lymphocytes to produce cytokines and contribute to this process, T cells from bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and PB from 19 patients with active lung disease were stimulated, stained, and analysed by flow cytometry for intracellular production of cytokines and expression of the activation… CONTINUE READING
