BACKGROUND Activation of coagulation and fibrinolysis play a role in the pathophysiology of experimental arthritis. OBJECTIVE To determine the extent of activation of the coagulation and fibrinolytic pathways in different joint diseases in humans and to ascertain the factors that may influence fibrin deposition within the joint. METHODS Plasma from normal subjects (controls, n= 21) and plasma and synovial fluid samples from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA; n = 64), osteoarthritis (OA… CONTINUE READING
