The pathogenesis of NSIP is mostly unresolved, although some data exist about possible mechanisms. Recent studies cite differences in cytokine network profiles in NSIP and UIP. There is some evidence that immune-mediated mechanisms involving T lymphocytes and dendritic cells may play a more important role in the development and perpetuation of NSIP than UIP. Fibroblasts from IPF patients have a stable phenotypic alteration marked by increased synthesis of the profibrotic cytokine TGF-β1, increased contractility, and increased collagen production, but fibroblasts from NSIP patients are lacking these characteristics.
