Literature associating CCL18 and rheumatoid arthritis interstitial lung disease
Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 18 (pulmonary and activation-regulated); Chemotactic factor that attracts lymphocytes but not monocytes or granulocytes. May be involved in B-cell migration into B-cell follicles in lymph nodes. Attracts naive T-lymphocytes toward dendritic cells and activated macrophages in lymph nodes, has chemotactic activity for naive T-cells, CD4+ and CD8+ T-cells and thus may play a role in both humoral and cell-mediated immunity responses; Chemokine ligands
