Characteristics of human rheumatoid synovial and normal blood dendritic cells. Retention of class II major histocompatibility complex antigens and accessory function after short-term culture.

Abstract

Dendritic cells (DC) were isolated from synovial tissue and synovial fluids of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and from peripheral blood of healthy donors. The cells were analysed for various surface antigens in indirect immunofluorescence by means of monoclonal antibodies. Surface antigen expression and accessory activity of the DC during short-term… (More)
