BACKGROUND AND AIMS Erythropoietin (EPO) stimulates erythropoiesis through its specific receptor (EPO-R). Preclinical work has assigned a role for the EPO/EPO-R system in the heart and blood vessels. The potential use of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) for nonhematopoietic indications is a focus of current research. This article considers proven(More)
Antigen-induced arthritis of rabbits is used as a model to study pannus-free destruction of cartilage in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) by transmission and scanning electron microscopy, incorporating plain and immune labeling techniques. During the acute "arthus" phase of the RA, immune complexes form and persist in these tissues. We observed the progressive(More)
Observations were made from the dissection of 156 digital joints (thumbs excluded). In all joints fibrocollagenous menisci projected into the articular cavity from a ring-like structure based on the joint capsule. These meniscal structures separated the articulating cartilage surfaces at the margins of the joint. Histological examination confirmed a(More)
Scanning electron microscopy has been used to study experimental antigen induced arthritis, providing a unique perspective of the early inflammatory events. An initial aggregation of acute inflammatory cells was noted at the synovial-meniscal junction with maximal numbers observed between 12 and 24 h post challenge. Variations in cell surface ruffling,(More)
