Immunotherapy with checkpoint inhibitors has revolutionized the management of metastatic melanoma. These checkpoints, namely the cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4 and the programmed T cell death 1 receptor, possess an inhibitory effect on the T cell function
Summary We provide a comprehensive update on the cellular components and their functional implications in sarcoid granuloma formation, with special emphasis on the specific characteristics of granuloma in acute versus chronic sarcoidosis. Moreover, the specific antigens thought to be involved in both forms of the disease are discussed.
Risk of sarcoidosis and seropositive rheumatoid arthritis from occupational silica exposure in Swedish iron foundries: a retrospective cohort study
Objective: Small fiber neuropathy commonly affects patients with sarcoidosis and is often refractory to standard immunosuppressive therapies used for systemic disease. The clinical features of sarcoidosis-associated small fiber neuropathy (SSFN) and its response to medical therapy have not been described in a large population.
