Abstract [en]

Introduction: Sarcoidosis is characterized by granuloma formation primarily in the lung and lung-draining lymph nodes (LN). The disease can present with an acute onset (usually Löfgren’s syndrome (LS)) or a gradual onset (non-LS). Mononuclear phagocytes (MNPs) - macrophages, monocytes and dendritic cells (DC) - are likely critical in sarcoidosis as they initiate and maintain T cell activation and contribute to granuloma formation by production of cytokines. MNPs in lung tissue and LN are poorly studied in both, non-LS and LS sarcoidosis patients.

Aim: To characterise the distribution and phenotype of MNPs in BAL, endobronchial biopsies (EBB), LN sampled by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) and blood from the same non-LS or LS sarcoidosis patients.

Results: We identified MNPs from all four anatomical compartments in non-LS (n=7) and LS (n=4) sarcoidosis patients. Blood, BAL and LN contained all MNP subsets while EBB only harboured one of three monocyte subsets. Frequencies, maturation and migratory status were different between the compartments as well as between non-LS and LS patients. Our results suggest heterogeneity in distribution and function of MNPs within organs typically affected in sarcoidosis and their potential involvement in the disease course.

Conclusions: We show that cells from BAL fluid do not necessarily reflect cells from EBB, a tissue primarily affected by granuloma formation. Our work provides a foundation for future investigations of MNPs in non-LS and LS sarcoidosis patients, allowing improved stratification to identify patients at risk of developing severe disease and provide early treatment to slow down disease progression.
