Synovial fluid (SF) is a dynamic reservoir for proteins originating from the synovial membrane, cartilage, and plasma, and may therefore reflect the pathophysiological conditions that give rise to arthritis. Our goal was to identify and quantify protein mediators of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in SF. Age and gender-matched pooled SF samples from 10 PsA and 10(More)
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a distinct inflammatory arthritis occurring in 30% of psoriasis patients. There is a high prevalence of undiagnosed PsA in psoriasis patients; therefore, identifying soluble biomarkers for PsA could help in screening psoriasis patients for appropriate referral to a rheumatologist.
