CD81 and CD48 show different expression on blood eosinophils in systemic sclerosis: new markers for disease and pulmonary inflammation?

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

In systemic sclerosis (SSc)-related interstitial lung disease (ILD), elevated eosinophil counts in bronchoalveolar lavage are associated with a worse outcome. We hypothesized that eosinophils may be activated in the peripheral circulation, thereby increasing their recruitment to affected tissues and contributing to inflammation and fibrosis. The aim of this study was to characterize the blood eosinophils in SSc patients.
