Alterations of the synovial T cell repertoire in anti-citrullinated protein antibody-positive rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The association of HLA-DRB1 alleles with anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) suggests the potential involvement of T lymphocytes in ACPA-seropositive disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate this hypothesis by systematic histologic and molecular analyses of synovial T cells in ACPA+ versus ACPA… (More)
