Abstract

Previous studies have shown a close correlation between the generation of B cell autoantibodies and imbalances in T lymphocyte subpopulations and the occurrence of disease. In this study, we have analyzed the effects of abnormal expression of CD4+CD25+-regulatory T cells, T lymphocyte subpopulations, immunoglobulins, complement factors, inflammatory factors, and adhesion molecules in the peripheral blood on the occurrence and development of autoimmune disease. Eighty patients with autoimmune disease were randomly (equally) divided into active-stage and stable-stage disease groups (according to pre-defined criteria). Fifty healthy people were recruited to the control group. The above-mentioned indices were detected by flow cytometry, immunity transmission turbidity, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. We observed an obvious decrease in the CD4+CD25+- regulatory T cell, CD4+ cell, CD4+/CD8+ cell, NK cell, C3, and C4 expression in all three groups; however, this decrease was statistically significant in the active-stage group (P
