To elucidate the characterization of peripheral natural killer (NK) cells in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), we investigated the NK cell activity, the expression of NK cell activating receptors and intracellular molecules. The NK activity was analyzed in 27 RA patients, 22 primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS) patients, and 15 healthy individuals using the (51)Chrominium release assay. The expression of NK cell activating receptors (NKG2D, CD244, CD2, and CD16) and intracellular molecules… CONTINUE READING
