Rheumatoid-like lesions developed in 9 of 25 (36%) Old English rabbits drinking cow's milk for 12 weeks. The incidence of lesions in male and female animals was similar. The majority of rabbits drinking cow's milk developed increased numbers of nucleated cells and raised percentages of T lymphocytes in their synovial fluids, compared to control rabbits. The(More)
Thirty-six percent of Old English rabbits fed pasteurized cow's milk developed early rheumatoid-like synovial lesions. All rabbits drinking milk developed high titres of serum and synovial fluid Clq-binding activity. This has been shown to be due to specific antibody to Clq, produced in response to Clq in cow's milk. In addition, these rabbits responded to(More)
Rabbits receiving repeated intravenous injections of killed bacteria (Escherichia coli or Bacillus subtilis) developed IgM rheumatoid factor which reacted with autologous heat-aggregated IgG. In addition, 5/7 'Old English' and 7/8 'Sandy Lop' rabbits receiving killed E. coli developed rheumatoid-like synovial lesions. 'Old English' rabbits developed lesions(More)
This paper reports the spontaneous development of synovitis in 'Old English' rabbits concurrent with serum IgM rheumatoid factor. Female rabbits developed lesions at a higher incidence than males (42% compared with 17%) and the pathology was of a more severe nature. In the female rabbits synovitis was associated with concurrent high serum IgM rheumatoid(More)
The arthritogenic effect of dietary cow's milk, egg albumin and soya milk were compared in Old English rabbits. The 12-week cow's milk feeding regimen produced the highest incidence of significant joint lesions. Lesions were evident but mild at 5 weeks and the synovitis had resolved by 32 weeks. It is suggested that the transient nature of the synovitis may(More)
