OBJECTIVE Soluble forms of adhesion molecules (sAM) can block cellular interactions and potentially prevent the adhesion of mononuclear cells to inflammatory tissue. We therefore wondered whether levels of a soluble form of the CD2-ligand CD58 (sCD58) are decreased in patients with different types of joint disease. METHODS SCD58 concentrations were(More)
The activation of monocytes, neutrophils, and B cells by T-lymphocytes appears to play a pivotal role in the pathophysiology of inflammatory bowel disease. The pan T cell marker CD2 and its ligand CD58 mediate these immune function. We asked whether serum levels of a soluble form of CD58 is altered in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Soluble CD58(More)
