|Abstract:||Cells from recovered BAL fluid and from infiltrates in different involved tissues (lungs, lymph nodes, conjunctiva, liver, spleen, and skin) were studied in 22 patients with active sarcoidosis in order to define the surface phenotype, functional in vitro properties, and topographic distribution of the cells in granulomatous lesions. Our data demonstrated a compartmentalization of activated T cells with immunoregulatory functions from the blood to all sites of disease activity. In fact, these cells were found to express the T4+ Leu 8- 5/9+ T17- phenotype, which belongs to cells with helper activity, and that provide heightened responses in functional assays of helper activity, IL-2 release, and the ability to respond in AMLR's. Both a cellular redistribution and a local in vitro replication account for this tissue compartmentalization in sarcoidosis. The microanatomic location of activated T cells, as defined by immunohistological evaluation, showed that the state of activation in these T cells may be a consequence of an intimate contact between helper cells and macrophages within the sarcoidosis granulomas.|
