: To compare the inflammatory factors and immune functions of patients with lung cancer and pulmonary ground-glass attenuation.Patients And Methods
: A total of 108 patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis treated in our hospital were selected and randomly divided into lung cancer group (Group A, n=32), diffuse ground-glass nodule group (Group B, n=35) and solitary ground-glass nodule group (Group C, n=41) according to the diagnosis results. Levels of inflammatory factors, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin-1β (IL-1β), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and interleukin-10 (IL-10), in serum were detected via enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA); the T-lymphocyte subset levels (CD3+, CD4+, CD8+ and CD4+/CD8+) in the immune system of patients in the three groups were detected using the flow cytometer; the levels of immunoglobulins, immunoglobulin G (IgG), immunoglobulin A (IgA) and immunoglobulin M (IgM), were detected via immunoturbidimetric assay.
