Cytokine Disarrangement And Increased Soluble Amyloid A (SAA) In Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Of Patients With Neurosarcoidosis (NS) (P5.170)

CONCLUSIONS: High CSF-SAA helps to differentiate cases of NS from other neuroinflammatory conditions and its measure might serve as biomarker in neurosarcoidosis. CSF in patients with NS shows a unique cytokine-chemokine profile that reflects neuroimmunological disarrangements that may be useful for understanding the pathogenic mechanisms of CNS involvement in sarcoidosis.This study was supported by the Bart McLean Fund for Neuroimmunology Research and Johns Hopkins Project RestoreDisclosure: Dr. Reyes-Mantilla has nothing to disclose. Dr. Kumar has nothing to disclose. Dr. Ilieva has nothing to disclose. Dr. Pardo-Villamizar has nothing to disclose. (Source: Neurology)
