OBJECTIVES To date, insufficient evidence is available to recommend serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) measurement as a routine test in the assessment of sarcoidosis. Therefore, we evaluated the clinical value of this test. DESIGN Forty-seven patients with sarcoidosis, all presenting with active disease, were included in the study. Initial serum sIL-2R levels were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and clinical data at presentation and follow-up were collected… Expand
Conventional markers in determination of activity of sarcoidosis.
TLDR
SAA will be helpfull for detecting the activity of srcoidosis, IL2R measurement in exploring the extra-pulmonary organ involvement and will be used during disease follow-up, the current study showed. Expand
Discrepant elevation of sIL-2R levels in sarcoidosis patients with renal insufficiency
TLDR
It is observed that in a small number of patients with co-existing renal insufficiency, sIL-2R can be disproportionately high without marked signs of disease activity based on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), ACE and the clinical presentation. Expand
Comparative evaluation of serum markers in pulmonary sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Serum levels of sIL-2R, lysozyme, and KL-6 were significantly correlated with the numbers of total cells, lymphocytes, and CD4(+) T lymphocytes in BALF, and univariate and multivariate analyses revealed that only KL- 6 was a predictor of increased parenchymal infiltration. Expand
Value of serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor as a diagnostic and predictive biomarker in sarcoidosis
TLDR
High levels of sIL-2R are suggestive of sarcoidosis, although a broad overlap exists in sIL -2R levels across sarcoIDosis, cHP, and IPF, which might serve as a prognostic biomarker for chronicity. Expand
ACE and sIL-2R correlate with lung function improvement in sarcoidosis during methotrexate therapy.
TLDR
Baseline and serial serum ACE and sIL-2R levels correlate well with lung function improvement during MTX treatment, suggesting that serial measurements of these biomarkers are helpful in monitoring treatment effects in sarcoidosis patients. Expand
Interleukin-2 Receptor and Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme as Markers for Ocular Sarcoidosis
TLDR
An elevated level of soluble IL2R suggests sarcoidosis with uveitis more convincingly than ACE, making sIL2R a more effective marker parameter for sarcoIDosis than ACE or chest x-ray in uve arthritis patients. Expand
Potential usefulness of inflammatory markers to monitor respiratory functional impairment in sarcoidosis.
BACKGROUND Sarcoidosis is a multiorgan inflammatory granulomatous disorder of unknown origin for which adequate markers to monitor disease severity are lacking. The aim of this study was to evaluateExpand
Diagnostic Value of Serum-Soluble Interleukin 2 Receptor Levels vs Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme in Patients With Sarcoidosis-Associated Uveitis
TLDR
This cross-sectional study demonstrates that sIL-2R is a useful marker for diagnosing sarcoidosis in patients with uveitis and has slightly better diagnostic value than ACE. Expand
YKL-40, Soluble IL-2 Receptor, Angiotensin Converting Enzyme and C-Reactive Protein: Comparison of Markers of Sarcoidosis Activity
TLDR
Results indicate that serum YKL-40, sIL-2R, ACE and hs-CRP concentrations may be useful marker for monitoring sarcoidosis disease activity. Expand
Serum B cell activating factor (BAFF) and sarcoidosis activity
TLDR
Serum BAFF concentration was higher in patients with sarcoidosis, while this was not significantly different from increasing severity of symptoms, and there was no significant difference in BAFF levels between acute sarCOidosis and active chronic types. Expand

Serum concentration of soluble interleukin-2 receptor as a sensitive parameter of disease activity in sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Serum concentrations of soluble IL-2R level were measured in 70 patients with sarcoidosis and a good correlation was noted between the changes in serum level of solubleIL-2r and clinical status and serum ACE activity. Expand
Sarcoidosis: TNF-alpha release from alveolar macrophages and serum level of sIL-2R are prognostic markers.
TLDR
It is concluded that TNF-alpha release and sIL-2R are suitable parameters for predicting disease progression in sarcoid patients who have no indication for therapy at the time of disease diagnosis. Expand
Soluble interleukin-2 receptor in blood from patients with sarcoidosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
Serum sIL-2R concentrations seem to reflect total inflammatory lesions of the lungs in sarcoidosis and IPF, and for clinical purposes, its measurement may be more useful than that of BAL fluid concentrations in patients with sarcoIDosis andIPF. Expand
Serum levels of soluble interleukin-2 receptor in patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis.
TLDR
Findings suggest cellular immune activation in ANCA associated vasculitis, and serum sIL-2R levels were significantly increased in these patients, in the active or inactive stage, compared with a group of healthy subjects. Expand
Correlation of clinical and immunologic parameters of the inflammatory activity of pulmonary sarcoidosis.
TLDR
The data indicate that the L-BAL activation markers and the functional activity of T-cells represent independent phenomena. Expand
Elevated concentrations of soluble interleukin-2 receptors in serum samples and bronchoalveolar lavage fluids in active sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Measurements of soluble IL-2R, particularly in serum samples, may reflect disease activity and be clinically useful in the management of patients with sarcoidosis. Expand
Clinical correlations of serum angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) in sarcoidosis. A longitudinal study of serum ACE, 67gallium scans, chest roentgenograms, and pulmonary function.
TLDR
Serum ACE levels and changes in ACE level correlated best with the clinical status of patients and their gallium scans, and less with their chest x-ray films, PFTs, or pulmonary function tests. Expand
Does peripheral blood T-lymphocyte population distribution in sarcoidosis provide a prognostic clue?
TLDR
The authors studied the distribution of T-lymphocyte subsets in the peripheral blood and from bronchoalveolar lavage to find a CD4/CD8 ratio which is significantly reduced in group B when compared with group A and the control group. Expand
Predictive value of bronchoalveolar lavage in pulmonary sarcoidosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that a high lymphocyte count, a high T4 cell count (as percentage of lymphocytes), and ahigh T4-T8 ratio in BAL fluid reflect an intense alveolitis at the time of the procedure, but they are not indicators of poor prognosis on which therapeutic decisions can be based. Expand
Pulmonary sarcoidosis: a disorder mediated by excess helper T-lymphocyte activity at sites of disease activity.
TLDR
It is concluded that one determinant of lung injury in sarcoidosis in the presence of large numbers of lung helper T cells, which are important in granuloma formation, is concluded. Expand
