Cartilage damaging activities of fibronectin fragments derived from cartilage and synovial fluid.


OBJECTIVE To investigate whether fibronectin fragments (Fn-fs), shown to damage cultured cartilage, can be found in cartilage from patients with osteoarthritis (OA) or rheumatoid arthritis, or can be generated from fibronectin (Fn) within synovial fluids or from Fn in the matrix of cultured cartilage. To also determine whether cartilage or synovial fluid Fn… (More)
